If you haven’t had boribap, and if you cannot read Korean, it means “barley rice”. It’s often used in a kind of be bim bap (mixed rice) dish, where you take the rice (boiled with barley) and mix in vegetables and some hot sauce, stir it all up real good, and eat it.
And then it grumbles around inside you for hours, dragging itself along every available surface within (which is very cleansing, I suppose) and giving you the most amazing gas. You also need to make sure there’s a bathroom available to you on demand for the rest of the day. Maybe I just had too much, but this, this is downright intense.
But it does taste good, and perhaps in moderation it’s less, well, alarming.
