I don't understand why so many people obsess over Japanese food. Have they not tried the godlike rich flavors and sour-spiciness that infuse Korean cuisine?

Ever since I tried korean food, I havent visited the local Japanese places (except for the occasional Tonkotsu ramen) as often.

You there, if you have never stepped foot into a korean restaurant, do so when you can, especially if you like spicy food. Kimchi Jjigae, a spicy kimchi pork soup, is highly recommended.
>>
>>7367542
Why do they have to be versus? They're totally different countries with totally different food?

That said I love yakiniku , but kimchi and the sides are almost all terrible.
>>
okay kim

>Why do they have to be versus? They're totally different countries with totally different food?

Yes.
>>
>>7367542
I don't like spicy food at all, it makes me physically sick. Hence why I love bland salty Japanese food.
>>
Had both, the hyped up japanese stuff is better than korean, but every other japanese thing is kind of inferior to korean

Good thing the hyped up stuff covers a lot

I literally can't figure out what foods you're talking about
>>
meh, it all tastes the same to me.
>>
I like both, but overall I like Japanese food better.
>>
>>7367542
Eh, I like it all. I'll have whatever I'm craving.
I've got some Japanese curry in my fridge that I made the other day, but I just finished eating a fucking dank bowl of dakbokkeumtang with kimchi and those sweet-soy sauce infused potatoes and some scallion pancakes.

I feel you when you say you don't get why people obsess over japanese food, but shit mayn, why obsess over any one cuisine, you're just cutting out literally a whole world of flavours if you do.
>>
I have GERD so i can't stomach any korean food except for japchae. I used to love spicy food too, but oh well.
>>
Japanese cuisine is objectively the worst East Asian cuisine, the only flavor profiles they have are salty and savory
Chinese = Korean > Vietnamese > Thai > Japanese
>>
>>7367729
Okonomiyaki is which one?
>>
>>7367734
sounds Japanese.
>>
>>7367542
The first and last time I stepped foot in a Korean restaurant, I got such bad food poisoning I had to go to the emergency room. NO THANKS, I'm good with my Japanese restaurants.
It's too bad too, because I was really looking forward to trying all sorts of korean food. But, it will never happen now, unless I make it myself. An experience like that haunts you for life.
>>
>>7367734
Did you mean what country, or salty or savory?
To me, Okonomiyaki is savory.
>>
>>7367754
The point was that Okomiyaki is a pretty complex flavor profile that has those two and combines it with sweet.
>>
>>7367759
True, the sweet is pretty subtle, though, the savory flavors (and salty) come through more, IMO.

Now I have to make some for lunch tomorrow because I'm thinking about it.

Literally retarded. That's like saying you drank expired milk once and will never drink milk again as a result.
>>
We have 1 Korean restaurant in my country and I ate there once. The place apparently kept on going bankrupt lmao however it was fun eating there.

They were all wearing traditional garb, there were tv screens in the back. Mid service traditional korean karaoke music started playing and all the waitresses (all qt's) started singing in front of everyone.

The food however was nothing special. Opening was a mushroom based dish basically raw mushroom with sauce.
The pickled things they have, and this is cause I don't like the sourish taste of things, was okay at best. The main dish was a hotpot with meat you could put it and soup you could then drink but every Chinese and Japanese restaurant serves the same.

I just am not a fan of that sourish pickled food which is why I prefer Chinese or Japanese over Korean.
>>

Sundubu Jjigae is all I've ever really had, but I'd love to have it again, as well as try some other dishes. I hear there's a Korean place in Nashville, which I am kind of close to, and I'm really considering giving it a visit.

I used this recipe here

The difference is that I added a lot of brown button mushrooms and eggplant in mine.

Ingredients

Marinate
150 grams Pork belly - skinless (sliced thinly) 15 grams Garlic (3 large cloves grated) 7 grams Ginger - fresh (grated) 1 tablespoon Gukganjang (Korean soup soy sauce) 1 tablespoon Soju

Stir Fry
110 grams Onion (1/2 small onion sliced thin) 200 grams Kimchi (~1 cup tightly packed)

Soup
1/2 Kimchi juice (squeezed from kimchi)doenjang 1 1/2 cups Water 2 teaspoons Gochujang (Korean chili paste) 2 teaspoons Doenjang (Korean bean paste) 2 tablespoons Gochugaru (Korean chili flakes to taste) 225 grams Tofu - soft (cut into large cubes) Finish 2 Scallions (thinly sliced) 1 tablespoon Butter - unsalted
>>
>>7367902
Marinate the pork belly with the garlic, ginger, gukganjang and soju while you prepare the other ingredients.

Heat a heavy bottomed pot until hot and then add the pork belly. Allow some of the fat to render out of the pork belly, then add the onions and kimchi. Sauté until the mixture is very fragrant.

Add the kimchi juice, water, gochujang, and doengjang, stirring everything together to combine. Bring to a boil and taste for spiciness, adjust with gochugaru to increase the heat to where you want it.

Add the tofu, turn down the heat to a simmer and let it cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the pork and kimchi are tender. Add the tofu, turn down the heat to a simmer and let it cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the pork and kimchi are tender.


When you’re ready to serve the kimchi jjigae, add the green onions and butter and give it a quick stir to incorporate. Put a trivet on the table and serve it straight out of the pot along with a bowl of rice.

Can;t say I'm a fan of Korean raw fish. Though, I imagine their take on it is more in line with the Asian preference for excessively chewy/boney/otherwise bothersome bits of meat while Japanese sashimi is the xbawks/imac fish experience.
That or the Korean drinking culture leaves them not giving a shit how their fish is sliced.

>>
>>7368270
I usually like Japanese food, but Jap curry is one of the blandest things I've ever eaten. An old roommate of mine had studied abroad in Japan and he'd have his study abroad buddies over fairly often and make a big pot of the stuff. I don't know how they didn't get tired of it. They never tried to spruce it up, either.

Not Korean and never had Korean curry.
>>
>>7368350
Well, since korean curry is directly derived from japanese, its mostly the same but there are differences

First, koreans tend to mix whole of curry with rice before they eat. Im a korean myself but i think it's really retarded
Secondly, some koreans sprinkle some chilly powders on their curry. This too is fucked imo

Everyone makes curry with identical powder( o tugi brand) and ingredients, so often they taste blend as fuck.

I have taught adults in both Korea and Japan, and I prefer Korean food more. every thing about it is just more satisfying.

Actually, now that I think about it only some sushi and pork Ramen count as better than korean for me. Call me a pleb if you want, I'm not lying about my tastes for e-peen.

The Japanese just don't seem to flavor beef and pork as well as Koreans otherwise. I've made japanese curry before, it's interesting but not as good as other curry.

I don't know which fried fish is which, though because I just do it at home with whatever.
