With winter full upon us, the urge is to stay warm and comfortable. Nothing satiates my morning hunger than Spam and cold rice. Today, rather than the usual over medium eggs, I poached them. Lightly salted, this was the breakfast of kings.
After the long car ride from Miami to Orlando, we dropped in on a Korean restaurant where I ordered Woogujiguk. It is a mildly spicy cabbage and beef stew which is comforting and filling. There is a restaurant on the second level at Incheon International Airport where this dish is featured. It’s cheap (about 8 bucks) and delicious and served within minutes of ordering. The cabbage is soft and the beef is tender from hours of boiling. Its usually the last thing I eat on leaving Korea and for whatever reason, something I only eat on the road. Tasting it brings to mind journeying and cold weather.
