Korean Frenzy

The food scene here is very different from Sydney. There is a lack of authenticity here. Perhaps because there are lots of migrants of many different countries in Australia, particularly in Sydney, the taste of the international cuisine is somehow very real. In the middle of Sydney, Korean, Japanese, Thai and HK restaurants are easily found. Here in Singapore, even at the well known Orchard Road, hardly, you can find a decent Korean restaurant.

So here in Singapore I have to look for Korean grocers (Thank God I found 1 at Cineleissure).Bought the chilli flakes at $13+ for a 200 g pack. Ouchhhh... too expensive for chilli flakes... but the desire to cook the Hot soup was too great to stop me from buying:)

Ok so here is the recipe for

Korean Prawn and Hot Dog Spicy Soup

8 grey prawns

4-5 Hot Dog

raddish cut lenghwise 8 cm

bean sprout

spring onion, cut lengthwise 8 cm

3 chilli

1 tbs of Korean chilli flakes

sesame seed

Tang Oh (Garland Chrysanthemum) a kind of green leaf vegetables

1/2 onion, sliced

1 clove of garlic (minced)

salt, little bit of sugar

Bring 1.5 bowl of water to boil, add raddish as it needs few minutes to be soft, chilli flakes, onion, and garlic. Add hot dog, prawn, and spring onion. Finally bean sprout and tang oh. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on your rice and into the soup...

Nice to be eaten with bulgogi or fried tempura.... will update that soon.
