10 Asian Recipes On A Budget (that taste amazing!)

Growing up in a Korean household was amazing. Every meal was Korean or had some kind of Korean flare to it (like eating kimchi with a hamburger and fries). 

After visiting South Korea and Japan, I’ve grown to love Asian food even more. I love the spiciness, all the flavor, and the way food brings people together. 

I used to hate cooking and now I enjoy it! Cooking Asian food is a lot of fun because you get to try out new spices and flavors.
