“Radish and Oyster Rice” (Gulbap, 굴밥) sounds like a very weird combination, apparently, it is one of the best food combinations.

I cooked my oyster rice in my rice cooker, so there was hardly any work to do.

While it’s simple to prepare, it is a really delicious and filling meal! I also felt really healthy afterwards.

If I describe the taste I would say something like this. It kept its individual tastes while harmonizing somehow. It was sweet from the chestnuts and dates, a bit salty from the oysters, and a bit spicy from the sauce. Hope you give this a try soon!
