Juk 죽



A while back I wrote about my favourite Korean restaurant in Seoul. I found this picture of the 죽 Juk, the Korean rice porridge that I love so much. I have tried making it at home, well not me... But it is just not the same...

San Nakji for President!

Sannakji, this is the Romanization Police.

I am a McCune-Reischauer advocate, so I prefer the chuk spelling of 죽 over juk, but 충무로 (in this post) is definitely Ch'ungmuro or Chungmuro, not Jungmuro.

BTW, I love chuk, too. That picture is making me hungry.

Hmmm, I'm not a big rice eater. I like just plain 'ole sticky white rice. Yummy.

That certainly looks like a really interesting dish. Hmmmm.

I can't agree with you on the Juk thing, but I will agree on the Chungmuro, just forgot how to spell it!

Oricon, you have no idea how yummy this is! If you have a Korean resturaunt over there in El Paso, please check it out!

I will do that SN! Just like I promised I would try Vegemite (and I did), I will do the same for you. I just need to find a good Korean restaurant here. *smiles* Not one that is run by a Mexican family who has no idea what Korean food is. *winks* (and this is no offense to Mexican people)

to make juck, you have to pour ten times as much water as the quantity of the rice.

Well, you wouldn't go to a mexican restaurant run by Koreans I am sure! Did you like vegemite? We eat marmite here, which is just like it. Yummy!
