Dal Thai

Thai cuisine is amazing. Everyone knows that. The spicy yet refreshing blend of spices, the creamy flavor of coconut milk, and the fresh pop of flash fried vegetables add up to make an enchanting mix. When done right…. and it isn’t easy to do right. So it was myself and three friends headed up the hill towards Dalmaji, with a heady mixture of excitement and trepidation.

where to buy Thai cooking ingreadients?

Hello all, 

Before I go searching all about Busan for the ingredients, I was wondering if someone knows where I can find some Thai food cooking ingredients.  It would be nice if I could find these ingredients all in one place, but if I have to, I will go to different places.

I'm looking for some lemon grass, red or green curry paste, cilantro, coriander and cumin.  


Thanks for any and all help!

Panko and Coconut Crusted Tofu by Joanna Tambakis



Tofu-2 blocks of firm, frozen tofu.

******I like to freeze tofu beforehand and then take it out of the freezer the night before allowing it to dethaw at room temperature. Freezing the tofu will make its texture denser. An added bonus is that the tofu will be easier to work with when you have to squeeze excess moisture out after unthawing.*******

For the tofu marinade:

  • 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water to thin the marinade
  • Juice of 1 lime or lemon
  • pinch salt
  • pinch garlic powder
  • pinch ginger powder

For the crispy batter:

A Mighty Weekend

It began with sushi.

There's a terrific new sushi restaurant near my place. It's a Japanese chain and very cheap - most everything is only 1,500 won. The place is large and brightly lit, with four separate conveyor belts that carry all types of fishy goodness. Each table has its own touch screen, on which you order anything that you don't already see cruising by. The order is sent back to the kitchen, where the food or drink is then placed on a bullet train, which shoots it to your table on a track above the belt. It's all wacky Jappy and completely awesome. I want to go every day.
