Kimchi Jjigae
Kimchi Jjigae
One of the most beloved Korean food among Koreans is kimchi jjigae, a stew that uses – you guessed it – kimchi as the main ingredient. Despite being a rather simple recipe, each ingredient and the way it is prepared can have a huge impact on the resulting flavor. Some people fry their kimchi in oil, others use anchovy broth. Some add samgyeopsal, others add tuna or kkongchi (mackerel pike). No matter how it is prepared, you’re sure to have a filling meal with kimchi jjigae!

Nearly every restaurant in Korea has kimchi jjigae on the menu. Because the flavor can vary so greatly, for first-timers, we recommend visiting a restaurant that specializes in kimchi jjigae.
An added benefit of visiting a restaurant that specializing in kimchi jjigae, you can enjoy it with all-you-can-eat fried eggs! You'll have to make them yourself at the egg station; be sure to only make as much as you can eat.
You can also mix the stew with freshly prepared rice and laver flakes.
A serving of freshly made rice with oats comes with each order of kimchi jjigae.
The basic kimchi jjigae features pork and tofu slices in addition to the kimchi, for a filling meal
