Resuming my Korea travelogue!
To be honest, I have never really try Korean food here, and I heard from someone/somewhere that Korean food are not to our liking. Hence I got a little worry before going to Korea, but at the same times I think I will be fine cause I am not a picky eater, basically I can tolerant with any kind of edible food xD
The must-drink in Korea, banana milk! I think if you've been to Korea before you should know la!
Taste something like Vitagen but way yummier! I tried the strawberry flavor too but still prefer banana ones. Forgotten how many bottles I have drink... hehe.. Selling at 1200 won (about RM 3.20) at all convenient stores.
Korean steamboat, lots of ingredients!
Side dishes are also a must in every meal, and kimchi is gotto be one of them
I tell you I ate 2 big bowls of rice like this EVERYDAY during the trip, one during lunch and one during dinner. Looks very ordinary but it is so yummy!! Just like Japanese rice!!
This is my favorite by far! ABC chicken soup, so warm and nice!
I love their big-head bean sprouts! So crunchy!
Homemade corn wine, said to be very healthy. I tried a bit in the beginning, yea taste good! I had 2 rounds, the effects were quick, I can instantly feel my warm face and body after drinking, hehe.
Ming tai fish soup, this fish is quite common in Korea.
Some friends said they cannot take kimchi anymore after 2-3 days of staying there, cause of the 'taste', but surprisingly I found myself started to fall in love with kimchi! I wallop most of the kimchi everyday....... The lactobacillus inside is very good to our body.
Most of the time we eat Korean bbq, and I started to feel a bit heaty during the 4th day.... But then they're so yummy how to resist?
Went to Myeong-Dong street to see this famous fatty aunty, 胖阿姨。She sells fresh fruits such as dried cinnamon and strawberries.
Another Korean bbq pork
This time we add in some chili powder, tour leader said the more the better, but we separated the pork into 2 sides just in case some tour members cannot tolerant with too spicy food.
The pork is to be wrapped in the cabbage leaves
Some fried stuff along the roadside.
One of the famous snack, ddeokbokki, fried rice cake. 3000 won (RM 9) per bowl.
Seafood steamboat, the seafood is quite fresh. One thing I love about Korean food is that all side dishes are refillable, how nice right!
Gingseng chicken soup, very healthy!
There're generous amount of glutinous rice inside, and some herbs.
Korean bak kut teh, not bad! Slightly spicy to me though.
Actually Korean people prefer something light and healthier, unlike us Malaysian, we tends to add a lot of sambal/cili padi during our meal time.
I think that's why most Korean people are slim. I hardly see many fat people there....
Udon, this was our last lunch in Korea, RM 15
Bibimbap, another favorite of mine. So good til I felt like having another bowl!
Ginseng wine, refillable!
Overall I am pretty satisfied with the food provided by the tour, some might be slightly too expensive but still quite reasonable to me. Though most Korean food are healthy but I've gained 1kg after the trip :( But I think that's pretty normal la right? Going oversea for a trip, input > output, haha xD
Looking at all these photos, I am starting to miss Korean food already!
