Korean Spicy Beef Soup

IMG_0338

It’s time for a Korean Soup! I’ve got my inspiration for this recipe from Aeri’s Kitchen. I used the common base ingredients in most of her soups and combined them with the ones in my fridge and was really happy with the outcome.

I think is pretty obvious just by taking a look at this blog that I have a taste for Asian food and Korean is not an exception, I love it too!  I’ve been to some random Korean restaurants (outside Korea, which I’ve never been to yet) that I would like to recommend in case you happen to visit or live in any of these cities: The Seoul House Korean Restaurant in Budapest, at the Buda side of the Danube (1011 Budapest Fő utca 8) serves great Korean food with a very attentive service in a very peculiar ambiance decorated with the 1988 Seoul Olympics theme and the Restaurant Coréen Kim in Strasbourg (5, place de l’Hôpital, Strasbourg, 67000) with an excellent varied menu.

Unfortunately I don’t have any Korean restaurant nearby, but luckily there are very generous bloggers out there to help me cook some nice Korean food when I fancy it. In this recipe I used the local veggies available since  I don’t have access to Korean vegetables and mushrooms, but if you do, switch them freely. Also, you can easily make it non-spicy if desired and change the kind of meat according to what you have at hand and even add some noodles.

Chicken Laksa – Bliss from South-East Asia

IMG_0180

To me Laksa is the queen of all soups, a world’s favourite originally from Malaysia and other South-East Asia countries like Indonesia and Singapore. There are many kinds, varying with the region and the ingredients, but one of the most popular and reproduced in the West is the curry Laksa: a curry and coconut based noodle soup . I have first tried it in Australia and then in Malaysia and have been cooking it at home since then, because I love it! (and there are no restaurants in the area where I live that serve it).

I often take the freedom to customise it depending on my fridge/pantry contents and cravings and I always include some  vegetables. Here it is a very simple recipe I cooked the other evening for supper, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Looking forward to your feedback!
