부대찌개 Budae jjigae

      Boo-day-jee-gay is how I hear it pronounced, and if you say it that way, people who know what it is will understand what you are talking about.  The name basically means, "army stew" or "military base stew."  Read about it and you'll find out it was a way to eat during famine days in Korea.  Basically, it is canned meat and vegetables stewed together.  popular.  Often, diners order noodles to cook and mix right in.  It's It's what I would call "Hobo stew."

     Anyway, I've enjoyed this in many places throughout Korea.
