Today's lunch at home:
Bap (rice) sits atop fresh red leaf lettuce from Momi's organic garden
A red sweet and slightly tangy/spicy sauce I decided to try from the market, absolutely no idea what it is called
On top of the unique licorice-like sesame seed leaf, is my favorite: melchi, a miniscule seasoned fish OkHee always made that I LOVE! salty and sweet!. Next to the melchi is marinated squid (if I remember correctly) I purchased at the street market yesterday. Also tangy, sweet, with a slight spicy heat. The sauce in the bowl, and the sauce used on the melchi and squid are similar but not the same: made with red pepper, sugar, salt, and other yummy stuff.
Then a big gob of kimchi, holy sh** is it hot! Sinuses are clear! Also acquired at street market. Not cheap! The kimchi, squid, and noodle soup cost $15 together!
