spicy hot ramyeon

2 06 2008

I am a Bicolano and we’re known to love spicy food. That’s not true for me, I never liked spicy food when I was still in the province. Tatay cooks Bicol express and would always have crushed siling labuyo in vinegar in every meal. I only began to like eating spicy food during my stay in a Korean Mission Center in Quezon City during my college days. They would always have kimchi breakfast, luch or dinner (sometimes even during mirienda!).

kimchiKimchi is a traditional Korean fermented dish made of vegetables with varied seasonings, most commonly referring to the spicy baechu variety. Kimchi is the most common Korean banchan, or side dish, eaten with rice along with other banchan dishes. Kimchi is also a common ingredient and cooked with other ingredients to make dishes such as kimchi stew (kimchi jjigae) and kimchi fried rice (kimchi bokkeumbap). (from wikipedia)

Aside from Kimchi, I also adore ramyeon (Korean version of Japanese ramen) because of its spice of course!, jajangmyeon (wheat noodles in thick black bean paste with diced meat and veggies, boiled eggs and spring onion), kimchi jjigae (kimchi soup with pork and vegetables) and kimbap (like the Japanese sushi).

Yesterday, I was craving for ramyeon so I went to Garden Maru Korean Restaurant in Holy Spirit, Quezon City (in front of Ever Commonwealth). Your marker would be the multicolored flags and their banner of course. I ordered ramyeon (100 pesos) and kimpap (100 pesos). Kimchi comes free with the meal.

Here’s the kimbap (the rice was a little bit dry)


and here’s the spicy hot ramyeon with egg topped with leek and carrot strips:


After the meal, apple slices and a glass of cinnamon drink, was served free to wash away the spice and the smell of kimchi!
