Hello! I’m sorry I’ve neglected you for so long. I ran into some mapping problems, but I think it’s all fixed now… is anyone still around? Hope you’ve been enjoying yummy K-food, wherever you are! :)
I haven’t posted any restaurant reviews because honestly, this site is meant to encourage more home K-cooking. But who are we kidding — obviously life can get busy and you can easily find yourself eating out, or being just plain lazy after a long day.

Today I will introduce you to one of my absolute FAVORITE banchan/doshirak (bento) dishes in the world: jun.
We polished off about half the jun before realizing we hadn’t taken a picture! ;)

Is it too late to wish everyone a happy new year? ;)
For many Koreans, January 1st starts by giving respect to our elders by bowing down and wishing them good fortune in the new year: 새해 복 많이 받으세요! In return, the unmarried young’ns will usually get some cold cash-money to store away (of course we are encouraged to SAVE it!) for the year.
This is usually followed by a family meal (late breakfast/early lunch) around the table with the star of the day, dduk guk, or rice cake soup.

If there was ever a poster child for Korean comfort food (just look at my site banner above! ;)), this would be it.
Hello everyone! My, it has been long, hasn’t it? I blinked and it’s almost November! After nearly a month-long visit, my parents left the other day to return to the motherland. I’ve been pretty blue the last couple of days, but I think I’m finally coming out of it — I actually think it gets harder the older I get.
As you can imagine, a lot of good ol’ fashioned Korean home cooking was had during that time. So much so, in fact, that I wasn’t able to document nearly enough as I wanted to because I was too busy eating. :P But of course, I had to share one of the basic Korean banchan (side dishes) that is pretty much one of the starter banchan you have as a kid: myulchi bokkeum.
Hello friends of the Internets!
I’m sorry I’ve been so neglectful. There’s a lot going on this summer, and it will take a few more weeks before I figure out how best to juggle all these balls in the air. Please be patient in the meantime and I promise eatyourbap will return soon!
I hope you’re all enjoying the summer, here’s hoping it’s filled with friends, family and lots of [Korean] BBQ ;)
