Jin Ramen (Mild) Noodles

When I sent balikbayan box at home I included noodles, I saw them on sale in the supermarket and I have thought of buying and when my family received the box I sent home. My sister told me that the noodles was not that spicy and it taste good and flavorful so they asked me to sent more whenever I sent a new box.

Wanting to try it I also bought Jin Ramen noodles for me to try at home, it was not really that spicy like I have thought when you use the exact water of 550ml.

Ottogi Hot Cake Mix

We’ve been wanting to eat hot cake since the last 4 years but looking in the hot cake mix in every Korean supermarket we are just left in a corner wishing for the day we can finally buy a hot cake mix. It is not about the price it is about the product description and how to cook it, my husband and I can’t read or speak Hangul.

Well few days ago my friend in Korea who now resides in the US shared the photo of hot cake she just cooked for late night snacks.  I’ve told her about our ordeal and she happily shared her recipes, so when my husband came home from work I opened up of having hot cake on our Friday cheat day, he is a little unwilling because he said it is a different mix but I insisted that I can translate the description written in the package by using virtual Korean keyboard.

So when we shopped for groceries we scanned the hot cake mix for a good deal, Ottogi Hot Cake Mix is the best deal we could get so we bought one package which is 500g and two bottle of Ottogi Cake Syrup.  When we reached home, I carefully copied the procedure at the back using the virtual Korean keyboard and translate it  using Google.  It helps but the translation is not well translated, it is not easy to understand it is such a headache!

Oh well, when I got tired understanding the English translation I opted on searching in the internet and voila in just few key strokes I found what I need about Ottogi Hot Cake Mix.

▶ Product Description

  •  Avoid direct sunlight, store in cool place.
  • After opening, reseal and store it in the refrigerator.

  2. Pour 500g of hotcake mix and mix well with 1 egg.
  3. Fry it in a low heat the dough for 2-3 minutes and turn it upside down and heat it again for 2 minutes.

So when Friday came we followed the instruction above and we are able to make our how hot cake as Friday treat. Having no whisk to mix the ingredients didn’t stop us.

Korean Roasted Pork

When my husband came home from his work he immediately informed me that there’s  a truck selling roasted pork  along the curve, and giving me a hint if I like treating him for something. Of course I know I have too so I dressed up and went down to buy roasted pork for ₩5,000 but when I reached the truck the guy asked me if I want to buy “ocheonon or manon” I told him “ocheonon” but he wants me to buy “manon” as it was bigger than my choice.

Oh well, I decided to buy “manon” ₩10,000 because the latter one is quite small and it is probably not enough for my husband’s appetite. The pork is quite ok but not that great as “lechong baboy” in the Philippines or what we called roasted pig. The sauce is a bit salty and read in color, at first I thought it was spicy but it was not.

Chicken Fillet Pizza from Pizza School

It is the weekend and we are craving for something good, pizza is on my husband’s mind and fried chicken is on mine. But my husband doesn’t want to buy fried chicken because it is a bit expensive and he doesn’t want to eat chicken, so when I went to pizza school I have ordered the pizza he like and I have ordered my chicken, my chicken fillet pizza exactly!

Great choice isn’t it? I am not only going to have a chicken but also a pizza, I have enjoyed it so much with chili sauce toppings and fickles at the side.  Yum!

Premium Meal from GS25

Eating the same meal every day is becoming boring so I have asked my husband if we can get an instant soup, he agreed with a plus what I mean to get pizza and chips as well. While at the convenience store I forgot about pizza, I walk repeatedly in the aisle and stay longer in the built-in open fridge where the sandwiches and pizza are. I know it was not sandwiched, without getting a hint what is it I took one of the premium meals at the bottom of the fridge.

Premium Meal

The premium meal cost ₩4, 000 or $3.72, it was a bit more expensive than the usual meal of meat, rice and kimchi. The premium meal has rice, pasta, vegetables, steak, chicken, mashed potato, sausage, pickles and corn salad, it is a complete package actually.
