[photo] 죽 2008. 12. 15

Postby hyunwoo » December 15th, 2008 10:04 am

죽 (juk) "porridge"

When I'm not feeling well, 죽 is always what comes to mind (if I still have the appetite, that is) because it's really easy to digest and therefore comfortable to the stomach, so a lot of people eat 죽 when they're sick or make/prepare/buy 죽 for someone who's sick.

My friend was sick one day so we went to have some 죽 together.

The store name was "죽 이야기" and personally this shop was much much better than the famous "본죽" that you can find all over Seoul.

Anyway, here's a couple of pics of the 죽 I had - it was DELICIOUS!!

Wow, that looks like a nice hot bowl of 죽!

What types of 죽 are commonly eaten in Korea? Which one was that in the picture?

Thanks A LOT for the thorough list ^^

And I think what I had was "해물죽" - seafood ^^

It was VERY good!

I love 죽, sometimes when I make it myself I add sooo much ginger . . . makes it taste so much better!

That's an interesting list! Quite different from what we commonly eat here in Singapore. Here we have more "boring" types: plain, fish, chicken, pork, peanut, century egg. But I guess if you go to a porridge restaurant, there will be more exotic types. :)

I would certainly like to try Korean porridge!
