Korean pasta

@ mirandablue
I have no idea what this pasta dish is called in Korean.  The sauce has squid, cabbage and possibly chili powder, a lot of it.  It was excessively spicy I've lost all feeling on my tongue!  I love spicy food but couldn't tolerate this one.  And I made a mistake of sipping cheap sake to cool off my burning tongue.  It tasted like a 3-day old tuba, an alcoholic drink from the sap of coconut tree that turns sour after 2 to 3 days---so different from the sake I had before.

This was my Korean misadventure.

hmmmm...still, it looks good!
did the sake really taste that bad (like a 3-day old tuba)? the only tuba that i really liked is the 'white' one...a caretaker at the farm used to make his own, and he used to give us kids (it was way way way back then, lol) 'fresh' tuba. it was really sweet...

In fairness, the presentation does look yummy. Sorry for the misadventure, though. I have a high tolerance for spicy food but I may not like this if this is excessively spicy.

Happy Food Trip Friday! Hope you can also visit my entry here.

Kimchi pasta?

The only time I ate at a Korean own restaurant, their dishes were a little sweet, but of course, that is because I didn't order any of their spicy dishes. I like spicy foods, but sometimes I don't like it if the dish is spicy from the start. Mas gusto ko yung ako maglalagay na pampaanghang, para kung mainit na ang mouth ko, I can still eat the remaining foods na hindi maanghang.

It looks delicate to me, but well.. after I've read what you wrote....
I used to like much spicy food, but less now, just a little.... ;)

so sorry to hear about that. I too love spicy food, but I have not had any Korean food either. Maybe you could have asked for a glass of milk then to help counter act the spicy-ness? hehehe.. Anyway, so sorry about that. Have a great weekend!
