| Chic Eats | Pi Son Korean Restaurant

16 April, 2014

| ABOVE | We started with Pa-Jeon a Korean style pancake full of kimchi and pork | BELOW | My own dish was Bi-Bim-Bop a beef and mixed vegetable rice bowl that just makes you feel all warm inside. My friend Wan had Kim-Chi Chi-Gae a fermented cabbage soup that was so delicious. 
| ABOVE | We ordered a few small plates known as Banchan to share during the main courses to make our experience that much more delightful. Some of the dishes include, Kim-Chi (fermented Cabbage), Kong-Na-Mul (Soybean Sprout Salad) and O-I Mu-Chim (Spicy Cucumber Salad). Banchan is a most try when visiting a Korean Restaurant. | BELOW | The hubby had Jae-Yook (Kim-Chi) Bo-Kum a spicy pork and kimchi stir-fry dish that was actually my favorite at of all the dishes we had. Our other friends had the Bul-Go-Gi a marinated beef that gets to cook in front of you, pretty cool. 
Korean cuisine originated from ancient agricultural and nomadic traditions (dating back 8000 to 1500 BCE) but has evolved through out time, influenced by social and political changes. Their staples are rice, vegetables and meats but ingredients vary by province. Most popularly known for their small dishes, as mentioned earlier because of the extensive variety. Now Korean cuisine has gone mainstream and the number of fans have increased, making it more accessible to the western world, and here is where I fit in, because in all honesty, this Chic Eats experience was so divine I left skipping like a child with a cotton candy. Korean food is at the top of my list, the flavors are aromatic and provide a variety of textures and layers that it will make you feel so happy inside. If you ever find yourself in a rot, because you are tired of eating the same thing, go out of your comfort zone and look up a Korean restaurant near your area. I will actually be going back to Pi Son this week and I can't hold my excitement, it's going to be sensational.
