i've always been a fan of korean food. the summer before the sixth grade, we went on vacation to South Korea and i even dated a korean guy back in college for about five minutes. bulgogi is positively, sinfully delish! if i remember correctly, my parents and i had it for lunch and dinner for the week we were in seoul. i heart me some kimchi too. anyway, Nam Kang is the only korean restaurant i've hit in Baltimore. i know there's a few more i should try out but i really dig this place. and they're open till 4am! what i like most about korean cuisine is the banchan, side dishes that i could eat alone with rice. one of my fave is the cold mashed potato salad. i guessed on the ingrediants and lord knows if i got it right. it tastes good to me so i guess that's all that matters.
- potatoes to boil, i used some small reds that i found at the farmer's market
- thinly sliced cucumber
- thinly sliced red onions, i drenched it in cold water and sugar, to take the kick of onion flavor out
- salt/pepper and sugar to taste
essentially, i combined how one would make mashed potatoes (sans the butter/milk) and how one would make potato salad. that's pretty much it. oh it's a rather sweet dish. not dessert sweet tho. just saying.
i do want to add that i do NOT know if this is the right way of making this dish, i'm totally guessing on it and looking at it, it looks nothing like the ones i've tasted at korean restaurants. the ingrediants are the same and it's a cold item. that's it.
