why is all the food in this country always prepared in the laziest way possible? ordered a shrimp pizza from 59 Pizza last night. of course the shrimp still had their tails on. on a frikken pizza. tried to just eat them with the tails on but the tails were too hard to bite into comfortably. ended up having to pick the shrimp off and eat them by themselves. urgh.

A) You're Kobayashi, you can eat anything.

B) Koreans eat the tails.

I don't mind eating the tails if they're deep fried to a crisp. Otherwise, not so much

What?

What part of the shrimp do you eat, the head?

As far as I know, most people eat the tail.

The shell, however, is a different story.  I've seen people from certain countries eat shrimp, shell and all, while others prefer to take off the shell and eat the meat.

Not sure how one would soil themselves, unless they fell backwards.

Biggest problems for a man is not tea-bagging or dipping the stick.

You do it once, and you'll never do it again.



But for a woman, who is just trying to have a pee, it is ridiculously easy to soil onesself.

I know a Korean gentleman that eats the whole thing, shell and all.  It's almost too much to bear for me.  All the crunching and mashing.  Reminds me of Attack on Titan.

Everything was going swimmingly this morning and then BAM! My shaving cream cap falls into my toilet and gets sucks in and now I'm stuck with a clogged toilet for the weekend...

Remember, whatever is causing the blockage needs to get pushed through instead of pulled up, so make sure there's plenty of water in the bowl to push the cap through.

Ooh this is good advice! I will attempt to do that as soon as I get home! Thank you! :)

And pile all your most expensive electronics next to the toilet when you do. I hear it's good luck!

if shrimp are fried the shell and tail goes nice and crunchy and you can eat the whole thing. if they are boiled or baked (like on a pizza), the shell and tail just gets too chewy to eat nicely.

I'm sick of all the low quality ingredients here... I made garlic cream cheese mashed potatoes yesterday, and I had high hopes for the cream cheese, since it was an American brand, but I could instantly tell it was made in Korea since it tasted like soy cheese.  And then the scallions I stirred in at the end just tasted off... ugh.

Additionally, Korean garlic only comes pre-peeled (from what I've seen) and I used about a million cloves but they'd all lost their flavor after being exposed like that.

I'm both with you and not with you on this one. I also don't eat the tails, as I agree they're chewy. However my wife and other Koreans I know do eat the tails. So it's not 'lazy', it's a different culture you're living in. Stop bishin'

If you go to a street market you should be able to find them unpeeled

Oh no, they definitely sell the whole clove, unpeeled. That's what I buy.

Oh yeah, right.  Don't you have to buy like 5 kilos of it then!?  I want like one head.  I actually brought back a head of garlic when I went to America last.

Well, it's more than one clove, but when I buy it unpeeled it's about 5 or 6 cloves. So not a crazy amount.

this is just one of many different examples i could give. another - how they'll just throw an entire fish into a soup. head, guts and all, not filleted or anything.

when i think of korean dishes, i actually struggle to think of a single dish that would require a decent amount of food prep to cook. it's a very lazy type of cuisine.

korean cooks are so lazy they even make you cook your own meat! (this sentence is a joke btw, in case it's not obvious).

Yeah, I've said this before. Korean cuisine is a lot of preparing. There isn't a huge amount of culinary skill involved in a lot of it. Don't get me wrong, I like Korean food. Biut it doesn't make me wonder, in awe, at the magic of it's cooking.

Anyone can throw kimchi jjigae together. Or budae jjigae. Or Kimbap. Or bibimbap.

Lasagna? That takes some goddamn skill to make it well.

Does anyone think the lack of oven culture here has stunted the growth of the national cuisine?

Beg to differ. With ready to go pasta sheets it's pretty straight forward these days. All you have to do is cook up a standard pasta sauce with ground beef and the rest is just layering the stuff in the pan. Unless you have a particularly complex version in mind.

i'd say lasagne is one of the easiest things to cook. at least, one of the hardest things to **** up
