Today for lunch I had some Korean keto food. It is not sold as keto food but if you choose the correct dishes at a Korean restaurant it actually becomes very good for people on a keto diet. When go to Korean restaurants I mainly focus on the meat, mushrooms and salad. I also try to add on additional oil when possible. As you can see from the pictures from today’s lunch there are many nice dishes that are easy to enjoy.
The Korean restaurant I am going to now and then has a grill that is integrated into the table. You order different dishes of meat, salad, mushrooms or other dishes. The restaurant also has a lot of dishes that contain rice but since I am following a quite strict keto diet I do not eat any rice or other carbohydrate rich dishes. My wife however is not on the keto diet so she really enjoys these Korean rice bowls.
The food you order is then served in small bowls and you get to cook it yourself in the way you want it. They also offer various sauces that you can have together with your meat but since I do not know the content of these sauces I skip them.
Each pieces of meat that I cook I eat with some small pieces of onion and a small pinch of salt. I put it on a small piece of lettuce and wrap it together before putting it in my mouth. It is a perfect combination of salad, meat and taste.
Usually one bowl of meat costs 35 RMB (~$5) and contains roughly 200g of meat. In total for 3 dishes of meat, one bowl of rice and meat and 2 bowls of lettuce we paid 120 RMB ($15). Korean keto food is a very cheep food and also tastes great. I am aware that the fat percentage is a little low with this kind of food but I compensate that later in the day by eating a meal that is higher in fat. Next time you are looking for something new you could also consider going out for some Korean keto food.
