Korean 101: Food with Miyazaki!
Miyazaki's films ALWAYS make me hungry so I thought, if I want to talk about food words, I need to use Miyazaki gifs ;D
Below are some easy food words to remember: Ramen 라면
*note: if you're talking about Japanese ramen you pronounce it more like 'ra-men' or 라멘. Korean ramen is often spicier :D Fried Eggs 프라이드 에그 (sometimes spelled 후라이드)
Just "Eggs" 계란
Fried Things 튀김!
You can get almost everything fried!!!
I would suggest the following (of course, dipped in a bunch of ddeokbokki sauce!)
Fried sweet potato - 고구마 튀김 (go-gu-ma twee-gim) Fried shrimp - 새우 튀김 (sae-oo twee-gim) Fried squid - 오징어 튀김 (oh-jing-eo twee-gim) Fried pumpkin - 호박 튀김 (ho-bak twee-gim) Stew 찌개
Usually served in black stone pots literally put over a fire and served to you still boiling hot. DO NOT TOUCH THE POT OR YOU WILL BE IN SERIOUS PAIN XD
Soft Tofu Stew - 순두부 찌개 (soon-doo-boo jji-gae) Kimchi Strew - 김치 찌개 (kimchi jji-gae)
Soy Bean Paste Stew - 된장찌개 (dwaen-jang jji-gae) Bread 빵
Lunch Box 도시락
Similar to a Japanese "bento" these usually have rice, a meat, and lots of sides like kimchi^^ Watermelon 수박
Let's eat!! (without tears in our eyes...) 먹자!
Who else is hungry now lol *cries*
