Pumpkin Porridge (Hobakjuk 호박죽) Life in Korea Series...

In this video Sam and Audrey visit a traditional Korean porridge restaurant to fight off their colds. In this video we try Hobakjuk (호박죽), which is a porridge made of pumpkin and glutinous rice. Juk (죽) is considered a staple "get well" dish, which is eaten when one is sick or recovering from bad health. All over Korea there is a chain of these 'well being' food restaurants called Bon Juk. It's such a popular chain that you'll find just as many of these as you would Starbucks or Lotteria. Like in many other parts of the world, the terms 'well being' and 'slow food' are being promoted to help combat fast food addiction. The dish itself takes time to prepare and is the kind of meal that is best to have with a friend given how large the portions tend to be in general. Like all Korean meals, this one too came along with a few little side dishes including Korea kimchi and soup. The porridge was sweeter than I anticipated, but it was a very tasty and heartwarming meal to enjoy on a cool autumn day. A few other types of Korean porridge I highly recommend include variations using walnuts and purple sweet yams. For those suffering from an upset stomach it's the perfect food to try considering it is so easy to digest. Apparently, Korean juk is also quite common in other Asian countries where it's known as another name; it's also popular as a baby food. For those traveling or living in Korea, I highly recommend trying this dish -- whether you're sick or not -- given its lethal combination of being tasty and extremely healthy: http://nomadicsamuel.com/video-blog/pumpkin-porridge-in-korea

Delicious (in Korean). Thank you (in Korean).

This is the perfect food for us today since we're both a little bit sick. I've had a cold for two weeks. Booh!

The Korean traditional porridge, also known as Juk, is considered a very healthy meal and it is often eaten when someone has digestive issues or a cold or something like that.

This hobakjuk, this pumpkin juk is something that I love and I've had many times but this is going to be Audrey's first time. It is very thick. Let's get a shot of you doing this.

The first bite! Does it taste good? Yeah, it is like rice-y and pumpkin-y at the same time. It is kind of sweet. Nice.

So the hobakjuk, the pumpkin juk (pumpkin porridge) is made with glutinous rice, so it is very thick. As you can see there are big rice ball chunks. Yummy! I'm just dishing it up.

I'm having the massive rice ball here. It is extremely chewy. Apparently, on a Korean game show many years ago someone actually choked on one of these. That's pretty awful, so I'm going to chew mine well.

The pumpkin porridge is considered slow food which is a buzz word in Korea. Oh, well being. Lots of bloopers here. Yes, oh there is plenty.
