Maeun Tang


at home

-One Serendra, BGC, Taguig, Manila, Philippines-

with the Family

Manila is host to a thriving Korean network of informal home-based catering businesses.  I suspect that they’re stay-at-home spouses trying to be useful while their other halves are out at work.  The proprietors use Kakaotalk (chat service) to announce what’s available – no set menus, just seemingly whatever they feel like making that day, mostly precooked/reheat-to-eat dishes – while customers respond to place orders.  The items are packaged and delivered.

W buys them for her own lunch and for dinner on days when she’s responsible.

Some of them have been okay.

This maeun tang, not.  I much prefer to make my own (see for example 8.271 Maya Maya Maeun Tang).
