Koreans/Korean-Americans -- What did you eat growing up?

Miss Needle | Dec 13, 2007 03:21 PM

This is a tangent to the Chinese thread. I've noticed that most of my friends (who are pretty much non-Korean) think that I grew up eating BBQ and jap chae almost everyday. When I was younger, my family actually ate a lot of "American" fare such as mac and cheese, roast beef, bologna, etc. As I got older, they started eating more Korean cuisine. However, BBQ and other dishes liked pa jun and bin dae duk and jap chae were more company dishes or once in a while dishes. On a daily basis, we ate a lot of casseroles, soups, ban chan, broiled fish and noodle soups. Curious as to what you guys ate growing up.
