5 Dishes to Pair with Korea’s Chilsung Cider
For many Singaporeans, we often feel nostalgic when we buy an ice pop from mini marts because that is the snack that we always have during school days.
For many Koreans, besides having bibimbap during school outings, that common drink to pair with the lunch is most likely Chilsung Cider – an iconic carbonated soft drink. It’s a luxury drink for many Koreans, especially during sports days.
You must be wondering, “Cider? Isn’t it alcoholic?” Well not in the case of Chilsung. It’s non-alcoholic! Introduced in 1950, Chilsung Cider is the best loved soft drink produced in Korea. Now the good news is, Chilsung Cider is now finally here in Singapore! Look what dishes I paired with it.
It’s ideal to pair Chilsung cider with my favourite bak chor mee. Because the strong flavours of chilli and vinegar from the minced pork noodles is balanced off with the refereshing lemon lime soda!
Good news is, Chilsung cider has less sugar and more highly carbonated, hence it is a great tasting alternative to both contemporary lemon lime sodas and their low-calorie variants. So when you are having BBQ chicken wings, open a can of Chilsung cider to go along with it!
Because Chilsung Cider relies on natural scents extracted from lemons and limes, it is very natural tasting which goes well with our Bak Kut Teh. We like to have it chilled after a filling bak kut teh meal. Don’t worry, there is no artificial colors, flavoring, additives or caffeine added to the drink.
With the emphasis on using pure, filtered water, you can probably taste the mild scent of lime and lemon that spreads a tangy-sweet taste all over the mouth. This works well to cut the oiliness when I eat a plate of gyozas.
Last but not least, that spicy plate of sambal stingray…. I love it absolutely but sometimes it is way too spicy! Hey, Chilsung Cider may help you to get rid of that heat!
Chilsung Cider is now available at Cheers, 7Eleven, Cold Storage and Fairprice stores.
