  • Korean food

    Hi everyone, I am not too familiar with Korean dishes, and would like some suggestions on Korean dishes that are primal friendly, of course. I am going to a Korean restaurant, so I need some help to make good choices before I go there! Thanksssssssss

      I think you should be able to find something prettily easily as long as you don't go for a noodle dish, as rice tends to come as a side dish.

      Just don't pick the bibim bap (one of my favourite pre-primal dishes)

            Korean BBQ isn't too bad. You just have to stay away from some of the stuff that maybe pre-marinaded. A lot of the marinades tend to have sugar and soy sauce in them. But if you go to a Korean BBQ where you can choose and cook your own meats at the table it can be really yummy. Kimchi also has some pretty good probiotic properties.

            People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                She probably thought you needed more probiotics in your diet and was trying to help you out :P

                  Bi Bim Bap. NO RICE! You'll get a lot of funny looks ordering this but every Korean place I've been to has done it.

                      Not to be a downer, but bulgogi is pretty heavy on the soy sauce and sugar. Without it, it's not bulgogi, just seasoned meat. And without any taste.

                        U R RONG.

                        It would not be 'without taste" it would taste like meat. Which we all agree is good.

                        However, yes bulgogi is probably loaded with soy, and sugar... ah well...

                          Great suggestions everyone! The Bi bim bap dish looks great, but yes I'd have to order it without the rice. A lot of the beef dishes seem like they're made w/sugar added, so I might steer away from that. Seafood might be another good option. Thanks all!

                            It's funny cos the word bap is Korean for "rice" so technically I guess you are ordering "Bi Bim?". While you are there be sure to have some kimchi too.
