Not The Same Old Korean Food Again!

sumashi | May 27, 2008 10:20 AM

I'm a Toronto native, but have been living in Korea for the past 4 months on work.... and WOW, I've found soooo much good Korean food. There are so many dishes that seem really common here, but I haven't seen them on my visits to Korean restaurants in Toronto.
These are a few of the dishes I really like:

ddak galbi - chicken, sweet potato, green onion and rice cakes in a red sauce cooked at the table...noodles are also often added..

samgyetang - cornish hen stuffed with rice, ginseng, dates, and garlic... comes boiling hot in soup to the table

kalguksu - "knife cut noodles" in an anchovy broth with a bit of veggies (potato and zucchini)

albap - similar to dol soht bibimbap... it comes in a stone bowl and has rice with random veggies, but has fish roe and often a raw egg yolk

haejangguk - pork spine soup; kind of reminds me of gamjatang but less garlic-y/spicy

I'll miss them when I leave, along with a lot of other things i've grown used to here :)
Does anybody know where I could find these back home?
Thanks!
