Reimagining Tofu

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 12.00.48 AM

I want to introduce you to one of my favorite dishes: soondooboo. Soondooboo is a popular, soup-based, Korean tofu dish that will change your life.

As a kid, I’ve always felt bleh about tofu. I just found it extremely bland and unappetizing, but I’ve grown to appreciate it after tasting my way through a breadth of cuisines. Tofu can be extremely plain or unquestionably delicious depending on how you prepare it because it absorbs the flavors surrounding it.

Soondooboo is the prime example of this. The silky tofu effortlessly marinates around a thick, mild to spicy broth consisting of seafood, mushroom, meat, or vegetables. It’s consistency and flavor adapts to the broth surrounding it, which creates a delectable experience as you shove spoonfuls into your mouth.

It’s pretty clear I love this dish. Some people consider fried chicken, mashed potatoes, chocolate or fries as their comfort food. Soondooboo beats all of these dishes without a doubt in my book. There’s no better feeling than eating a piping hot bowl of soondooboo on a rainy day.

Jae and I talk about out pet peeves at the gym and relationship troubles as we share this delicious dish. Here’s a full video:

What the Slime?

What in the world is slime? These slime videos have gone viral the past year and we have no idea why. There are hundreds (maybe even thousands) of slime videos out in the YouTube world!

Supposedly, these slimes help with anxiety, relieve stress, and relax people. I’m not sure if that’s true; it’s probably the same reason why people play with stress balls. It’s weirdly sensual and one of those things you can’t stop watching. We honestly just felt extremely confused while watching people squish and mold their slime for 10 minutes straight.

So of course, we had to give it a try.

After making it, I think we finally understand why people have been (or are) obsessed with slime. Honestly, we really can’t deny the fact that the slime was strangely satisfying to poke, squish, and play with.

We’re pretty late on hopping on this trend, but if you’re really bored and live near any Target, Walmart, Michael’s etc. it’s a great DIY to kill some time.

Is Avocado Toast Overrated??

Not if you put your own twist on it 😉

And that’s exactly what Jae and I did for this MUKBANG. We were inspired to eat a humongous plate full of avocado toast after visiting Saltie Girl, a seafood restaurant in Boston, MA.

You will not believe how DELICIOUS their avocado toast is. It’s a combination of avocado, crab meat, pistachios, and stracciatella (buffalo milk cheese) that just melts in your mouth. Sadly, we didn’t have these ingredients for our toast but we enjoyed ours just as much.

Here are our ingredients:

  • Toasted sunflower, rosemary, and olive oil sourdough bread
  • Fig jam
  • Ripe avocado
  • Feta cheese (not crumbled)
  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Cayenne powder

Directions:

  1. Toast your bread until the crust becomes brown
  2. Mash up your avocados with all the dry spices
  3. Crumble your feta cheese
  4. Spread fig jam over you toast
  5. Layer on your mashed avocado
  6. Sprinkle feta cheese on top

And voila! You are ready to eat some dank a** avocado toast!! Here’s a full video of us devouring this deliciousness:

Is Gaming Healthy for a Relationship?

We have no idea, but we gave it a try anyways.

A little background– I have no prior experience in the gaming world but Jae actually went semi-pro during his high school days (pretty sick). Anyways, Jae and I ran out of things to do last night so we aimlessly wandered around Youtube until we started binge-watching a plethora of gaming videos.

We were glued to the screen as we laughed at gamers screaming, teetering at the edge of their seat, and rejoicing as they accomplished their game objectives.

And then Jae had a brilliant idea.

Why not channel our own competitive gamer personality by GETTING TRIGGERED AT 12 AM?? And that’s exactly what we did. In hindsight, it was probably wiser to go to sleep and get ready for a bright, early day…but what’s life without spontaneous game nights?

I want to introduce you guys to the most simple yet frustrating game we’ve ever played: Getting Over It by Bennett Foddy. You’ll understand why.

Here’s the full clip from last night:
