Kimchi Fried Rice 🇰🇷


A much anticipated recipe after our bibimbap recipe! Here is our version of kimchi fried rice, served with pork bulgogi and topped with a crispy fried egg.


Another quick and easy dish but undoubtedly delicious! You can omit the meat if you want to make it vegan, and make sure that the kimchi you're using is also vegan too as kimchi is typically seasoned with fish sauce!
