At first i wasn’t too sure about this dish , although the picture looks really good and really tempted me to try it . I finally decided to give it a try , although with slight modification , i didn’t use pork belly , instead i used ham ( leftover from christmas that i froze ) , and i didn’t use spam , or american cheese . But i used everything else , including rice cake , baked beans , kielbasa , cabbage , glass noodles and ramen , also rice cake . This is what i like about soups and stews , the aroma when cooking the anchovy kelp based broth always fills the house , makes me even hungrier and can’t wait the food to finish . I was right , the food turns out delicious , not to mention how easy this was and less mess . My husband loves it , and my 10 years old son gobbled it up , so i will sure make this again soon !!
