I’m always discovering new and tasty things, I guess almost everything is new to me because most of it is Korean. However this last week I tried a few things which I thought I recognised.
First I tried ‘dukbokki carbonara’ (rice cake cabonara).
This was from an Italian restaurant, on my street. I was told that this place makes really good, authentic Italian food. The carbonara sauce was very good (though a little thick) but dukbokki is not Italian! Neither is the kimichi on the side but I found it all very delicious. They served a profiterole-like pastry along with the meal also. Cost: £5
Then I tried ‘cinnamon bread’.
This was from a bakery down my road. Wow it was good. I need to find out what the Korean name for it is because I’m sure it is not European. Its a soft, slightly brown bread with a rice cake in the middle (more duk) and a cinnamon oozy filling within the rice cake! Flipping heck I loved it. Cost: 90p
Lastly, I went for some good old Japanese Ramen downtown
I had the beef miso ramen. All I can say is this was some of the best ramen I’ve ever had. Now I am yet to visit Japan (but thats happening soon folks) so I can not yet say if this was authentic but it tasted damn delicious. I just flipping love it when people put eggs in my food. These yolks were creamy and golden. Cost: £4.50
