Kimchi Pancake (Kimchijeon)

Kimchi. Kimchi. Kimchi. I’ve been craving for kimchi these past few days already. So I decided to try cooking some Kimchi Pancakes for lunch. So here it is. Ta-da!

Kimchi Pancake

Disclaimer: I am not a chef or anything, I just like to experiment when it comes to cooking. 

Things you need:

  • 3 tbsp of flour
  • 3 medium eggs (I used only 2 eggs, but I find it needs more egg)
  • A handful of soybean sprouts
  • 1 cup of kimchi
  • 3 tbsp of kimchi sauce
  • 1/2 cup of chopped white onions
  • Chopped spring onion (depends on your liking for this one I used around 2 tbsp)
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar (I used brown sugar)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame oil

Procedure:

  1. On a separate bowl, whisk in the eggs, kimchi sauce, sugar, salt, pepper and the flour. Make sure to mix in the flour carefully as it may create lumps.
  2. Over a low heat, pour sesame oil on a hot non-stick pan and then fry the onions until they becomes transparent.
  3. Add the soybean sprouts, kimchi and toss in half of the spring onions.
  4. After a minute, pour in the egg batter mixture and sprinkle the remaining spring onions. After two minutes or if the other side if cooked already flip the pancake. About a minute or so your Kimchi pancake is ready.

This brand is worth trying. I tried many kimchis already and this one is nice! The brand is Chan Chan Chan. Yup! That’s three Chan(s) there. We usually order it online, so I’m not sure if FairPrice or Cold Storage sells this.

If you’ve managed to try my recipe, let me know how was it.

Of course, Din Tai Fung. You can’t leave Singapore without eating here. Except if you are from Taiwan.

 

For the weight watchers, Soup Broth Asia offers dishes that is prepared without MSG and they put calorie count in each dish. Try the Yam rice. Yummeh!

JAPANESE:
Tajiyama, a Japanese charcoal grill Yakiniku restaurant. You have to try their Eat-all-you-want Wagyu Beef menu. So good! ❤

DESSERT/SWEETS:
Ci Gusta! A gelato and yogurt place located at Anchorpoint Shopping Centre. Their gelato is too sweet for my taste though.

Twelve cupcakes, they offer a lot of flavours. And I heard that this is one of the most popular cupcake shops here in Singapore.

Lao Ban Soya Beancurd is LOVE! The soya just melts in your mouth and the sweetness is just right. Soya goodness!! Kriscel Go 2013 Singapore-60

K-bbq in the South

I love Korean food so much!! There’s not a week I’m not craving for it. So my friend and I tried out Sariwon Korean Barbeque Restaurant in BGC.

Korean side dishes is love. Weeee! But I wish they were refillable as most Korean restaurants offer.Kriscel Go 2013 Sariwon-3

Jeonju Bibimbap (P300.00)

Japchae (P350.00), is good for sharing.

We got free dessert. Yey! It’s called Sikhye─a traditional homemade sweet drink with malt and rice. The taste is light and refreshing, a great way to end a meal.

Kriscel Go 2013 Sariwon-8

Verdict: 4/5 (The experience was great and I really love their food. I would go back and dine here again if I have the chance. Just make the side dishes refillable! Lol) And it’s a bit pricey.

Address: 7th Ave, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines
Operating Hours:
Monday to Sunday
11:00am to 11:00pm

Don Day!

Korean food never fails to make me hungry. Just by watching Koreans eat makes me crave for Koren bbq all the time! Good thing there’s an affordable K-bbq nearby our house. DON DAY KOREAN RESTAURANT is just along Malingap St. in UP Teacher’s Village right across Pino Restaurant. Don Day’s the interior is the typical ones you see in koreanovelas: long wooden tables and chairs and grills. It makes you want to order Soju. Lol

You have to try their Samgyupsal buffet (on top of the unlimited pork strips, you can also take already cooked food like japchae, gimbap, miyeokguk (seaweed soup), pancake and many more) and this only costs for P300. Not bad right?

On a side note, their restroom is clean, well, it is a plus factor for me since I am fussy when it comes to public restrooms.

If you have inquires, you can contact them through these numbers (02) 435-0528, (0905) 301-6208. And here’s the map just in case you are not familiar with the place.
