Arirang Korean Restaurant

The restaurant is attractively decorated with lots of pretty knick-knacks and artworks. There are comfortable booths that seat up to four along one side of the main room, as well as larger tables for groups and two-tops tucked away here and there.

Kimchi chigae

This is one of those dishes born out of necessity, as one of the many ways to use over-fermented kimchi that's too pungent to eat on its own. If you only have relatively 'fresh' kimchi and have the time to plan before making this dish, leave the kimchi at room temperature for a day or so.

It makes sense in high-density HK for housing estates to impose dog ban

I am fond of dogs, but I have become dismayed by supposed Hong Kong dog lovers and their lack of appreciation of the fact that the majority of Hong Kong dwellings are inappropriate environments for dogs.

Be alert to the signs of heatstroke

Heatstroke in dogs is especially common in the summer months, although it can occur at any time, as Hong Kong's temperature rarely drops too low.

Mexican crave

The North American cuisine I miss most is Mexican. While I love the traditional dishes, I also appreciate the modern fusion food sold at taco trucks in many United States cities, which mix Mexican ingredients with those of other cultures.

Cold comfort

I once overheard a conversation between two French men. One of them had just returned from Japan and was telling his companion that he had been served cold noodles. 'Tres bizarre!' said the other.

I actually love cold - or room-temperature - noodles; they're remarkably refreshing when it's sweltering outside.

The depths of our Seoul

Hong Kong's love for all things Korean continues undiminished, but it appears tastes are becoming more sophisticated. At one time, dining out on Korean cuisine invariably meant sampling barbecue dishes, but nowadays diners are more willing to explore the diversity of the nation's cuisine.

Kimchi pancakes

You can use this batter to make large pancakes (which are cut into wedges after cooking) or small, individual ones. If you like, substitute finely chopped seafood or other types of minced meat for the pork. The recipe is based on one in Growing Up in a Korean Kitchen by Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall.

Ingredients

150 grams cabbage kimchi, drained
