Alirang Korean Restaurant
354 Main Street West, Hamilton
The first soup is called Gamjatang, pork bone soup. Easily my favourite Korean soup. This soup was different though, good different. I’ve never had pork bone soup with such an intense and strong pork bone taste. It had a fantastic balance of spice and meat flavour. YUM.
The second soup is Seafood Soondubu, which is a spicy soft tofu soup. All the seafood made it sweet and delicious. The stock was definitely strong and flavourful.
All you need for the stock is dried kelp, dried anchovies, garlic, and dried shitake mushrooms. To add spice, you just need the hot pepper flakes. Add whatever you like to bulk it up. The main ones are seafood, beef, curry, and chicken.
