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

(ra-myeon)
*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)

(peu-ra-i-deu e-geu)

Just "Eggs"

계란

(gye-rahn)

Fried Things

튀김!

(twee-gim)
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

(jji-gae)
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

(bbang)

Toast

토스트

(to-seu-teu)

Sandwich

샌드위치

(saen-deu-wi-chi)

Lunch Box

도시락

(do-shi-rak)
Similar to a Japanese "bento" these usually have rice, a meat, and lots of sides like kimchi^^

Watermelon

수박

(su-bak)

Fruit

과일

(kwa-il)

Let's eat!! (without tears in our eyes...)

먹자!

(meok-ja)

Who else is hungry now lol *cries*

I want some Korean meal so bad. But you can hardly find any in MN unless you go downtown and I live far from downtown 😢😢

@Adetoro I feel your pain. I live about 85 mjles from our nearest Asian markets, so I try to stock up when I do get to go. I typically get my red pepper powder, red pepper paste, black bean paste, soybean paste ( I keep my pastes in the freezer, so they keep for a while). And I learned how to make my own white pickled radish and made my first batch of traditional napa cabbage kimchi the other day. It isn't as easy to have delicious korean food, but it is doable. I also got some korean pancake mix and made some green onion and kimchi (my own kimchi) pancakes this morning. They were so good.
