Korean Fried Rice


I’ve been doing some traveling to the Marshall Islands this year and am back home for a couple of weeks. For those of you not familiar with MI, the main atoll is called Majuro and is about 20 miles long and a quarter mile wide at the widest point. Being there really makes you appreciate what you have here in Hawaii, for instance the variety of food you can find for a quick tasty lunch. So while back in Hawaii I try to make it out to lunch and relish the diversity of flavors available here. A friend of mine introduced me to this little restaurant called Elim, right across the street from Tower Records on Keeaumoku St. They made this Korean fried rice which in typical Korean fashion was made with kim chee. Kim chee is won bok cabbage that is marinated and soaked for who knows how long in hot chili sauce. The good stuff makes your scalp sweat and your ears turn red. This dish was good although it wasn’t that hot. There’s several Korean restaurants in this area. It’s a real treat to be back home.

    I’ve been meaning to check that place out. How much did this meal cost?

    Have you ever heard Keeaumoku Street referred to as “Koreamoku?” One of my students called it that this past summer. Cracked me up.

    Koreamoku? I’m sure you’ve read it elsewhere before

    This dish ran $6.95. That seems to be the average price of a Korean lunch plate. I had bibimbap at another nearby restaurant that was the same price. The price was worth it for the bibimbap. It was massive.
