Food: Boribab (Barley rice)

What do you do when you don't feel like having too heavy a meal, especially after Thanksgiving, which I'm still pretty stuffed from all that turkey...

Boribab (보리밥) ~ 'Barley rice' sounds like a plan!

So after our little fumble around Nagan pretending to be tourists on Sunday, we headed over to a well-known local joint where even the KOREANS eat.

The deal is this... a bowl of boiled barley is served, which is eaten like steamed rice. On the side, there will be gazillion side dishes from broiled pork, seasoned soft shell crab, grilled fish, vegetable assortment, kimchi (lest we forget), soup and other condiments.

It is meant to be eaten ANYWAY you like. I chose to do it a'la Bibimbab (비빔밥) ~ A stirred up mix of barley rice, meat, vegetables, sesame oil and Korean chili sauce.

Absolutely delicious, with a little or no guilt on the part of having eaten too much! Its low fat and high in fiber... can't beat that can we?

Finally...an indication that "barley rice" = barley. Is this true? Why don't people just say "barley?" Thanks!
