I did a lot of eating in my last week and a half, but I'm pretty sure I did nothing but eat the last 36 h I was in Korea. With so many tasty things that will be hard to find at home, who can blame me?
First up, another one of those cook it yourself things - kebabs. After cooking, you dip the meat in either a chile pepper spice mix or, my favorite, salt and fennel seeds.
Some classic Korean things I ate:
|naengmyeon - cold buckwheat noodle soup|
|sun dae - innards and rice sausage, also good in soup form|
|ddeokbokki, seaweed soup, and fried things|
My last supper: bulgogi and rice beer
|the rim is egg and kimchi|
|makgeolli - rice beer|
My very last Korean meal: kalguksu. The name actually refers to the type of noodle, but to me there will only ever be seafood noodle soup (haemul kalguksu).
|crab, shrimp, mussels, clams, octopus, squid: this soup had it all!|
