So here's a picture of some late night snacking. I couldn't take a picture of my first meal in Korea since I didn't have a camera. But for those of you who are curious, I had some sashimi that was literally alive 2 seconds before they sliced it up and served it. It was money of course. This picture is pretty straight forward, me and Eunice did some late night munchin. The yogurt drinks are super popular in Korea so you might see some more in my future posts.
Did some Korean style shopping.
So here's my first documented meal in Korea. I had some seafood fried rice at a Japanese restaurant in a food court. Yeah, a food court. I was shocked, since I'm so used to crappy food courts. It was just some assorted seafood and spicy fried rice, served with miso soup.
This is what Eunice had at the same Japanese restaurant. Korean style curry with don gas and rice. I've never heard of don gas and curry until I came here. It was ridiculous. Apparently there is a specialty curry place where you can choose the level of spiciness and toppings in the curry. So stay tuned.
After our lunch at the food court, we got some skikhae. The one on the left is just original and the one on the right is melon shikhae. It was awesome.I didn't get anything here, but thought you guys might enjoy the pic. These are everywhere in Korea. And everything is made from scratch on the spot. Unlike the states, almost nothing is frozen here.
Here's what we had for lunch before we left for Malaysia. Malaysia will be covered in my next post, so stay tuned. I left my notes in Eunice's bag so I'll get the names to all these restaurants later. This is some dukkboki chain that you see all over Korea. From left to right we had, assorted tempura fried basket (sweet potato, broccoli, seaweed filled with noodles, and some shrimp), a pot full of udon that tasted ridiculous, and some mediocre dukkboki. The only reason I say mediocre is because it was more sweet than spicy. Each item was 2500 won so our entire meal was 7500 won, which is roughly $7.50.
So this is my very first blog and my very first post. I apologize if it sucks. Any kind of suggestions would be awesome. And if you guys have any questions or requests please feel free let me know.
