I went to one of the local kimbap restaurants for dinner. They have very quick and cheap meals. I had dwenjang chiggae (bean paste soup), which is one of my favorite Korean foods. I mentioned this soup before, in the post about the soup that I often make for myself (my version of this soup). The main difference is that I usually don't make it spicy, when it is usually a spicy soup (with hot peppers in it and red pepper paste/powder). I also tend to put a lot more mushrooms in it. I love mushrooms!!!In almost any restaurant here (I have never experienced it otherwise), if you order soup, you get rice. They always have a a few side dishes that come with any meal you have. Today I got radish kimchi (in the round dish behind the rice), mushrooms and green peppers, peanuts (in some sort of sticky sweet soy sauce/sesame oil marinade), and, of course, kimchi. It is very filling and cost me 3000 won (about CA$3.50 or US$3.10).
