H-Mart Lunch On A Hot Day

A was in town over Memorial Day weekend and she wanted to go have lunch. I like when other people decide where to go, and she suggested H-Mart. Yay! There wouldn’t be very many reasons for me saying no to this. A got the dolsot bibimbap. She doesn’t put the kochujang into her bibimbap and mixes it up before she eats it. So you can see that the rice is still white and nothing is spicy. But she takes little dips of the kochujang and adds it bite and bite if she wants. It’s a different approach. Hey man, whatever works! It’s good with the spice or without.

It was a hot day, so I did not want hot food, but wasn’t really sure what to get. Then, we saw two employees eating from this giant, and I emphasize, giant, bowl. That particular shop sold tuna albap and shrimp albap, but these girls were eating it with tofu. That’s what I wanted. But it wasn’t on the menu. But I asked for it anyway. The lady behind the counter got confused. So she asked one of the girls who was eating this, and she said sure, why not. So they made me one. What I thought was a serving for two employees turned out to be actually just for one. It just happens to come out in a giant bowl. You cannot see how giant this bowl is in the photo. That bowl with all the shredded lettuces, cabbages, carrots, cucumber, and tofu, does not have any rice in the middle of it. That stilll has to be added later. This giant bowl was just positively filled with a giant heap of shredded veggies. It was awesome.

When you throw the rice in there, the kochujang, and mix it all together, you get this lovely firey mess. Really, it looks like a giant mixed shredded salad or shredded cole slaw with a red dressing. Oh, but with a little teeny bit of rice mixed up in there. On a hot day, this really is just the perfect food. Raw crunchy cold ingredients, with a hint of spice. The tofu was warm with some sesame oil, and it was the perfect protein. Aside from the imitation crabmeat, this was practically vegan!
