Yuka Kinoshita is a well-known Japanese “mukbang “YouTuber with an incredible amount of followers, over 5.45 million subscribers on YouTube alone. Not to mention her instagram, and other social media platforms..
In case you didn’t know, mukbang involves a video host eating an absurd amount of food.
Kinoshita also tackled a social media favourite. She prepared a gigantic version of Dalgona coffee.
Although the trend started in South Korea, Dalgona coffee actually has origins in Macau, India and Pakistan. In those regions, though, it’s simply known as whipped coffee.
But, why did the trend start in Korea? it’s all just because of one guy, Jung Il-Woo. After discovering the drink in Macau, Jung fell in love with it and subsequently gave it his own name — Dalgona coffee.
He named it Dalgona because the brown foam resembled a popular Korean sponge candy. Dalgona is a fun Korean street food that will bring out the kid in you!! 🙂 With a sweet caramel flavor and a lightly crunchy but also melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Let’s see how she prepared it.
