This time our Korean Food Fan is Ikhlaas Pokun, from Mauritius! It’s really hard for him to find Korean ingredients there, so he has to be super-resourceful to make Korean food. Read on, and let’s see how he does it!
What is your name and where do you live?
Hey everyone, I’m Pokun Ikhlaas. I’m 19 and currently living on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.
Tell me about the first time you ever tasted Korean food. Where were you, and what did you eat?
I didn’t know anything about Korean culture until I found I could watch KBS World on TV by I don’t know what miracle, since I wasn’t supposed to be having this Korean channel and nobody else in Mauritius knows about it. I started watching korean variety shows and as you know, food and culture are closely related. I learned about how Koreans love kimchi, jjajangmyeon, ddeokbokki, etc…
