Kaeng Kiew Wan with Chicken, Broccoli, and Bamboo Shoots over Rice
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
with KKH and MtG
Admittedly, the food styling is ridiculous. For one thing, a lot more chicken and broccoli and bamboo shoots were actually involved. Otherwise, this would have been one skimpy-ass meal. At one point while eating, I glanced into the pot, where all the ingredients were jumbled together (including fresh basil and a few strips of baby corn, not pictured), and it struck me that perhaps a curry – this one, again with the help of Asian Home Gourmet -is better presented as one big, hearty mess that better reflects its wholesome, down-to-earth nature. I was just having a bit of fun with the whole stacking shtick, forgive me.
