#Personal – surviving in spice world


Honestly I don’t have that much to write about in this #personal post as I just posted a (delayed) #personal post a few days (like two) ago. As some of you may know I can’t handle spicy food at all, may it be because Dutch cuisine uses not much more then salt and pepper or because my parents cook with even less spice then your average Dutch house hold. I don’t know, I just can’t stand even the slightest bit of red pepper. Something which kind of sucks when living in South Korea as I actually enjoy the taste of Kimchi, Korea’s traditional fermented vegetable dish, a lot. That is until the spiciness kicks in.

There are many Korean dishes that I really love but most of them are either desserts or quite greasy (SAMGYUPSAL!). Just not the food that you can every day. So what have I been surviving on? The answer is rice balls filled with tuna (or crab salad)! I, actually my roommate who loves spiciness, found a little rice ball shop near our university. I love, love love love it. Not only is the food good, but (very important remember: Dutch + student = extremely frugal) also very cheap!

With Love,

Elise Mooijman

p.s. for the people that aren’t that much into culture and traveling related articles: more beauty stuff is coming your way soon!
