Banchan and blogs

         Over the weekend, Mr. Lovey and I went out for some Korean food. If you've been to a Korean restaurant you might know that it is customary to serve a selection of small side dishes called banchan. For this entry I thought I'd share a small selection of posts (blog banchan, if you will) that I've enjoyed recently:

         Getting back to the food: we were hardcore and ordered this spicy seafood stew. Yum. Have you ever tried Korean food? What are your spring obsessions?

Love, Dovey.


  1. That stew looks so good! I love tofu stew but it's so filling but great for chilly SF afternoons!

    I am a kimchee ho! Especially for Kimchee fried rice...

  2. didnt know the side dishes had a collective name! learn something new everyday. creative way to call this little group of posts. honored to be mentioned! :) the spicy soup looks delish! that is definitely something i would order as well, i really enjoy korean food!

  3. Certainly mouth-watering food. Korean is so good.

  4. Oh, Dovey! This is so cute!! And so creative. You're not Korean, are you? Banchan blogging has never occurred to me. Love it!

  5. Thank you for the pics!! I LOVE KIM CHEE!!

  6. this looks so good! And what a creative idea :D I've been noticing a mineralize trend among some of my favorite bloggers too!

  7. LOVE Korean food and I think all the side dishes are so nommy! I also love that you recommend some good reads!

  8. Love Korean food- I could eat kimchi with pretty much anything and make my own.

    Spring obsessions are my new leopard print ballet pumps from Kurt Geiger and Jaeger lightweight wool trousers.

  9. Oh my goodness your photographs of your meal made my mouth water. I LOVE Korean food!

    Thank you for the shout-out, doll!
