[Cuisine] Sikhye 식혜, a Sweet Taste of Korean Dessert

26 Feb

Sikhye, nice taste and you should try ^^

Sikhye식혜 is a traditional Korean rice drink made by pouring malt water onto cooked rice. It tastes sweet and you can feel ginger flavour also. Sihkye always served as a dessert.

The malt water steeps in the rice at typically 150 degrees Fahrenheit until grains of rice appear on the surface. The liquid is then carefully poured out, leaving the rougher parts, and boiled with sugar. Ginger or jujube are often added for additional flavor. It is served chilled.

In South Korea and in Korean grocery stores wherever Korean communities are found, sikhye is readily available in cans or plastic bottles.

One of the largest South Korean producers of sikhye is the Vilac company of Busan. Atypical of most canned beverages, each can has a residue of cooked rice at the bottom.

Homemade sikhye is often served after a meal in a Korean restaurant. There are several regional variations of sikhye. These include Andong sikhye and yeonyeop sikhye or yeonyeopju, a variety of sikhye made in Gangwon province. Andong sikhye differs in that it also includes radishes, carrots, and powdered red pepper. Also, it is fermented for several days as opposed to one. It is important to note that the crunchy texture of the radish is kept despite the longer fermentation process, since a soft texture would indicate an inferior product. Andong sikhye is appreciated as a digestive aid and sikhye also helps in digestion because Lactobacillus bacteria yeast.

[Cuisine] My Korean Culinary Experince at Mu Gung Hwa Jakarta

26 Feb

Last week I went to Mu Gung Hwa, Mu Gung Hwa is Korean supermarket located in blok Q Santa Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta. I found a small tiny canteen near the beverages refrigerator inside the supermarket, so I went inside the canteen. Some Koreans and Indonesians enjoyed their meals. I had seen they ordered ddeokbokki and noodles.

There were kinds of Korean dishes such as ddeokbokki, do you know ddeokbokki ? ddeokbokki is a most popular Korean snack food which is selled at the food street vendors. Bibimbap … I am sure you are all know this menu ^^ and also other various of menu such as kimbab, noodles and fish cakes.

I ordered dolsot bibimbap and ddeokbokki while I was waiting for them, I got  served free kimchi for an appetizer ^^.

Then my orders was coming. My point is you should try ddeokbokki. Fresh chewy rice cakes mixed with delicious fish cakes and vegetables, with thick spicy red souces. So nyummy. This ddeokbokki has got 9 points of 10 points ^^

Then I tried dolsot bibimbap, for me it’s standard, nothing special for dolsot bibimbap in Mu Gung Hwa. but it was nice.

Some tips, if you’re so hungry or very very hungry or you will come with friends, you may order 2 or 3 menus. But if you come alone, please choose only one menu or your stomach will get full. Hahahaha.

After meal time, I went back to the supermarket and bought kimchi, frozen mandus and bottles of rice juice to take home ^^

TRANSLATION

You’re exhausted, I can feel it.
I can see that you want to leave.
I can’t breathe without you here.
I can’t see. I can’t feel or hold you.
I’m tired. Stop, stop, stop, stop right there.
I’ll take a step, step, step to escape.
I keep screaming that it’s too late, that I can’t change, that it’s the end!

So I can believe, I’m not alone. Now I’m not alone, there’s no reason for sadness.
And I can feel it, I’m not alone, Surely not alone, never to feel exhausted.

One more time now, Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Even if time passes by, I’m not alone.
Because of you, baby.
I can believe.

Even if I get over you,
Memories will remain.
I can’t heal the scars that I carry.
Time keeps stop, stop, stop, stopping here.
Another step, step, step to escape.
I cry that we’ll never go back, that we’re too late, that it’s the end!

So I can believe, I’m not alone. Now I’m not alone, there’s no reason for sadness.
And I can feel it, I’m not alone, Surely not alone, never to feel exhausted.

One more time now, Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Even if time passes by, I’m not alone.
Because of you, baby,
I can believe.

Even on nights that are pitch black, I can’t breathe without you.
I’ll never be afraid again, because of you!

So I can believe, I’m not alone. Now I’m not alone, I can turn everything back.
And I can feel it, I’m not alone, Surely not alone, never to feel exhausted.

One more time now, Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Down, down, down, down.
(No, no, no, no!)
Even if everything breaks, I’m not alone.
I only need you to know,
I’m not alone.
You’re not alone.
