While I was in Korea, I took a lot of pictures of food, because I was pretty much in heaven. I’ve selected some of my favorite dishes, to commemorate it being a year since I visited there. I really want to go back! Also I can’t believe I didn’t share these pictures here, but I did share them on my instagram, so please feel free to follow me there if you ever want more food pics. 8D
As someone with lots of food allergies, I was really thankful to be roaming the city with friends and coworkers who could help make sure that I wasn’t eating anything that would cause a problem. Even with all my allergies, I was still able to eat so much food, it was really amazing!
My favorite part about eating was that it was very communal. Each meal was just a spread of food that everyone could share, and that made it even more enjoyable!
I also learned that soju is a tricky drink that makes you think that you are invincible and then you wake up the next day realizing you are not and are thankful that the hotel restaurant has amazing soup that is perfect for a hangover when you can’t walk anywhere far without wanting to die.
Also, their fluffy eggs put any other Korean BBQ place I have been to so far in California to SHAME.
And speaking of BBQ, that was pretty much ridiculous and what I lived off of most nights. They didn’t mess around.
I didn’t have much dessert, but when I did, it was, as everything else, amazing and ridiculous.
My last meal in Korea was actually one of my favorite. It was Ginseng chicken soup. This dish blew my mind. It was a hot pot of water, still boiling, and the whole chicken inside. The chicken was stuff with ginger, rice, and garlic. . . it was magical.
Now I’m going to go cry that I can’t eat any of this food right this moment.
