Korea Republic: Street Food Bite and Booze of the World Cup






Another stop along the FIFA World Cup 2014 takes us to the Korea Republic! Asian cultures are known for their exotic and plentiful street foods. You can find bowls, skewers and mouths full of some of the most delicious food you've ever seen on every street corner. We're going to take a look at pan-fried fish cake and a delicious cocktail recipe for an Apple Soju!

Pan-fried fish cake may not sound appetizing to the average American, but like tofu, it's a great way to add a semi-flavorless protein component to take on the tastes of any great sauce. I found and chose this recipe because it reminds me of a good stir-fry dish and sounds perfect for enjoying a good match! The onions, green and red peppers, and garlic come together with other traditional Asian flavors to make a stir-fry sauce with some pop!

Apple Soju is a drink made with potato vodka, which has become quite popular in Korea. Combine the potato vodka with some bubbly tonic, apple juice and sake and you've got the Apple Soju. These flavors are tart, sweet, and smooth...sounds like a great drink to me! Try it out and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below or on the Facebook Page!
