I bought a container of kochujang/gochujang (Korean: 고추장 at my favorite 24 hour Korean supermarket in Subic. Buying there is so much cheaper than buying Korean food in Manila, plus it’s 24 hours.

I thought about making bibimbap during my free time, but then again, what free time do I have these days? Any free time I have, I spend out with my friends instead of cooking. So it’s been storing for a while (3 weeks) in my fridge, unopened, waiting to be used.

I finally got to use it as my brother had a catering function and served bulgogi. When the plate got to me, it didn’t look like bulgogi. More like bibimbap so I asked my nanny to toss it back in the pan together with some rice and I put in the magic kochujang.

Amazing. So simple, yet so delicious in my own Korean bowl, using my own Korean chopsticks.
