About Me

Hello everyone!  Welcome to K Food Addict (Korean Food Addict).

I am Chloe Lim (Kayeong Lim)

Me

I was born in a small country town in South Korea where I lived my whole life.

In Korea, food plays a major role in building relationships between friends and family. In fact, it’s even common practice for neighbours to share food with each other as a way of showing friendship and love.
When I was 20, I travelled to Australia to study English, and while I was there, I made many friends at  college. One day, I decided to cook for them a traditional Korean style BBQ, with Kimchi. To my surprise they loved it! I still remember us fighting over the last piece of Kimchi. In that moment, I realised that Korean food is largely unknown to the world, so I thought to myself… “how can I spread the word?”

So that’s why I started KfoodAddict.com!
I hope you enjoy the korean recipes I have prepared for you :-)

      It’s freezing in Korea at this moment.
      We got the coldest winter and most snow for last 60yrs in this year.
      But cold weather with SNOW is not that bad I think haha.

      If you have any questions or requests of Korean food, please let me know!

  12. You are too cute!!! Love your posts, can’t wait to start cooking!!!

  13. Can you give me a good recipe for yaki mondu& a dipping sauce. Thank you.

    • Hi Leonard,
      Thank you for the request.
      I often enjoy eating pre-made Mandu in Korea. You will be surprised if you see how many types of mandu products we have in grocery store here.
      But still Home-made mandu is the best one, I guess =)
      Thank you!

  14. An nyoung ha sey yo Ms. Chloe,
    Back in 1992 I was stationed at Osan AB. And while there fell in love with some Korean foods. You have one of my all time favorites all ready. Which is Beef Bulgogi. But I can never seem to get the rice the same way. However, another favorite was Yaki Mandu and again I can’t seem to find a recipe for it. I do know from experience you eat it while it’s hot or at least warm because once it gets cold. It’s not that good, but otherwise it’s Great. Thank You for this Great Place to share a bit of you and your Culture. Something no one should miss out on.
    Roy

    • Hi Roy,
      Oh, you’ve been in Korean before. And your favorite Korean food was Beef Bulgogi, so is mine =)
      Korean eats white short-grain rice and cook it a little bit sticky. If you get the sushi rice, that would be the most similar texture to Korean rice.
      And you like Yaki Mandu! My Australian husband also loves Yaki Mandu. I still remember that when he came to Korea, he only enjoyed the mandu, but nothing else because most of Korean dishes were too spicy to him =)
      I will make a recipe for Yaki Mandu some time. Hope you have a great weekend!

  15. Hi Chloe I love your recepies and I will try to make some of them ^_^ I hope it will be delicious and as good as your cooking :p
