Japchae (also spelled as chap chae) is the first Korean dish I tried. Believe it or not, before I came to the United States, I had never had Korean food. Growing up in Malaysia with all its glorious local cuisines and family’s home cooking, I seldom tried other cuisines…plus there weren’t many international restaurants back then.

I first had Japchae when I lived in San Francisco. I fell in love with the springy and slightly chewy texture of the japchae noodle, which is made from sweet potato. Korean food was new to me, the taste—especially the dishes with lots of heat—reminded me of Malaysian cuisine, but it’s completely different and interesting.
