Everyone keeps asking me if I have any weird pregnancy cravings and the simple answer is – NOPE! I am eating more or less the same foods I ate pre-pregnancy EXCEPT for my favourite – SPICY FOODS!!! I miss spicy food oh-so-much! However, if I eat anything remotely spicy, I will have severe heartburn and acid reflux all night long resulting in less sleep than my current 4 hours broken sleep situation. Le sigh.
Anyway, I am currently craving Dduk-Gahng Jeong – an amazing spicy and yummilicious dish from Seoul Metro, a wee hidden Korean gem we stumbled upon in Melbourne city a few months ago. It is deep fried chicken – who doesn’t love some good old Korean fried chicken? – with Korean rice cakes which are chewy doughy pillows of yum, covered in this sweet chilli and sticky honey sauce – it has a great chilli kick and fantastic textures to chow down on. *drools*
The last time we visited Seoul Metro, we just ordered the Large portion of Dduk-Gahng Jeong and two bowls of steamed rice and ate till the plate was licked clean and our bellies were full of happy food 🙂
I also took a picture of the Banchan that was offered at Seoul Metro. (For the Korean food newbies, Banchan is the little Korean side dishes they serve you alongside the meal.) I can’t remember whether I liked the kimchi or not – but right now, I would love to eat some of that spicy fermented Chinese leaf!!!
Oh…and did you know that pregnant women should not eat beansprouts because they carry a Salmonella risk?
Anyway, I really shouldn’t blog about food before going to bed. It is making me very HUNGRY!!!
