Hi everyone, we are Wimbledon family! We are back with new episode,
today we will talk about eating in UK! Especially for people who just got arrived in UK,
they wouldn’t know what to buy to make some Korean dishes It’s so funny somebody wrote Nidl there, I did, I didn’t know that haha [Yummy] [Simpson] [Jayoung] [Jihyun] OK then we’ll talk about from now, as we have done supermarkets in UK, for people who don’t live around London
it will be harder to cook Korean foods There are lots of people who don’t live in London For people who don’t live in London, cooking Korean foods are almost impossible As there is not many Korean supermarkets. So we’ll talk about what to buy/use when you want to cook Korean foods without going Korean supermarkets. Firstly we’ll talk about rice, we bought rice here, this one is risotto rice. If you use this as we cook rice,
it is very similar to the rice we have. In fact what we actually suggest is sushi rice. You just can think Sushi rice is almost same to the sticky rice Yes sticky rice is what we usually think rice. Sticky rice, sushi rice And when you need korean MSG(aka dasida in korean) Ah yes What you can use instead of dasida will be the stock,
as a shape of cube here, the most famous brand is OXO I will open this one It looks like this, you can make a broth
by adding a hot water and wait for a minute This is beef broth It’ll be good to make a soup The vegetable stock will be good for all purpose, chicken stock for the chicken dishes,
beef stock for beef dishes and lamb, pork etc That’s good What else there will be… Ah, I was wondering about this this one you can use instead of chilly powders Is this sort of peperoncino? Yeah sort of, it is crushed chillies so it says crushed chilli There’s also one called chilli powder in Waitrose
which is more close to korean chilli powder Does taste same? I think it’s slightly different You are right it’s different but when you can’t find korean chilli powder and you want to replace to something else Garlics, you guys told me last time, there’s crushed ones Yes it is cube shaped crushed garlic
you can buy from the supermarkets That’s really useful tip I am using crushed ginger, we often need ginger for korean foods
but when you can’t be bothered to crush yourself There’s ginger paste,
I have been using this for almost a year now I guess it went bad… That’s alright 🙂 There’s garlic puree What is puree? Puree is the texture you blend it really smooth only garlics? yes and it is in the tube which is hygiene There’s no kimchi you can easily see,
what do you eat instead? We are having jalapeño As we love spicy foods I am having pickles There are lots lots of pickles here,
so many something pickled. So when you want to eat something pickled or kimchi, those won’t be too bad
as it’s hard to find yellow radish pickles
(aka danmuji in korean) There are lots of pickled vegetables,
such as pickled onions and.. In Korea when you see cucumber pickles
it is only sliced ones, but here you can find cucumber as a whole or tiny cucumbers sliced and Even there’s pickled eggs eww sounds disgusting Sometimes the whole aisle is for pickled foods Then what is this? In Korea you just can have a rice
with chilli spiced tuna can as the most simplest meal, you can do that here with this. This is canned mackerel. When we say canned mackerel it might sound disgusting but it actually is not at all This is tomato sauce
and I strongly recommend teriyaki sauce one. Are there many flavours? Yes there are many, there are water, sunflower oil etc, this one says brine which might be water. There are many flavours but if you are thinking chilli flavoured tune can,
teriyaki or tomato sauce one will be the best. What is this? This is the bread crumbs Ah, to fry things When you want to eat korean style fried chicken,
you need a bread crumbs and a starch A starch is corn starch or potato starch, the bread crumbs are here, For katsu or else, the meats are not exactly same to what we can find in korea. That’s sort of upper level to talk about, isn’t it? yes but there’s really simple way There’s butchers in Waitrose or the bigger supermarkets Ah butchers Yeah there are They are cutting the meats as you want,
also good quality I can easily find the pork belly Yes there are pork belly It’s fairly good I guess pork bellies in UK are pretty watery I thought it was the fat but it was water
so the dish came out like a steamed meat So be careful,
I do grilling the meats like frying with lots of oil There are many different ways so please try! The meat,
especially the beefs are much cheaper than korea. So even you are in tight budget, having beef wouldn’t be too difficult. Meats, vegetables, fruits are all pretty cheap Fruits are really cheap. Like melon for example,
it is almost 20 pounds in the supermarket, sometime over 40 pounds
in the nicer department stores. Here, a bit small, it is 2 pounds! This size, it’s 2 pounds Maybe because the domestic production is possible? Mango is soooo cheap Shopping in korean is expensive, thinking the minimum wage here is much higher than Korea but supermarket prices are cheaper. Yes vegetables and fruits are absolutely cheaper It is cheaper here unless you are going to Waitrose and buy organics for everything In korea I heard eating out is sometime cheaper
but here it is not true at all, it is very pricey When you eat out, you need to pay for any labours related to that meal. Anything people do, it is expensive here. And I am not so sure
the government is controlling the price, I guess they do I guess the government is controlling
the supermarket price to make people eat home in a reasonable or tight budget And another thing you might find it different
would be sweet potatoes Yes I do eat sweet potatoes a lot, like 3-4 boxes in winter but here when I had the sweet potatoes for the first time, I thought why can’t I feel any flavours…? It is nice shape but literally no tastes And there’s no hard sweet potatoes No All of them are soft ones But the colours are really nice There are sweet potatoes for roast,
they are a bit sweeter Agree That’s good tip And what we love here is, ready meals yes! There is korean word for ready meal.. Retort..? Is that korean?? That is not korean haha Half dried foods? half cooked foods! Is there such a thing? The ready meals you only can use
microwave or even are really good, I guess nicer than korean restaurant
called kimbab heaven For your information, Waitrose and m&s have good ready meals, can be a bit pricey Indian or Chinese foods are good Indian ready meals are so good India is historically related to UK, maybe would that explain why Indian foods here is so good? The best foods in UK is Indian foods haha Yummy! I heard the most popular dishes in UK is curry And I know some Korean people
from my language course, they usually get fat around 5 kgs
mainly because of the deserts British love chocolates. What was surprising to me was
cakes or puddings from the supermarkets are so good like we can find in Korean bakeries Because it is not common to find the bakeries here,
there’s no Korean Paris baguette in UK What we think bakeries are
all in supermarkets, including breads And this is my little tip to eat good chicken You might go KFC to eat chickens or cheap shops But that still would’t satisfy your desire to eat korean spices So what I normally do is buying breaded chicken and put in the even for a while
to make it as fried chicken. What you need to do is just making some sauces
to go with and fry all together When you are here, everyone can be a good cook I am me too But.. to be honest we are living in Wimbledon Which means Korean supermarkets are
in 5 mins driving distance So we don’t actually have those problems haha yes I can buy bread crumbs there I am using korean MSG I am having brown sticky rice, not this one For tuna can? I am having proper korean tuna spiced one haha Yes but not everyone is living near New Malden Hope everyone can enjoy their foods in their own ways See you later bye!
