Kimchi Jjigae

with 6 comments


Seoul, January 2011 in Vienna, Austria

Imaging a cold winter night, it’s windy and raining outside or snowing or sometimes both. You went into this very crowded small restaurant, and as soon as you opened the door, the warm steamy air along with the smell of mouth-watering food came into your face. The hot Kinchi Jjigae (Korean stew-like hot pot) was still boiling when served. The tofu and the thinly-sliced pork belly meat soaked up the rich flavor of the kimchi soup….

This is why I always go back to this small place again and again, when the service is even not very friendly!

Tonkatsu – Japanese Pork Cutlet

with 4 comments


Katsukura, September 2010 in Kyoto, Japan

Tonkatsu is breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet and a popular dish in Japan, often served with shredded cabbage. Katsukura on Kyoto’s busiest shopping district Kawaramachi (河原町) is the most famous restaurant for Tonkatsu in Kyoto. Each customer gets a mortar and pestle to grind fresh sesame and mix it into the special sauce for the pork.

Here in the picture is a tonkatsu menu with seasonal yuba (Tofu skin) rolls.
