Jeonju, located in Jeollabukdo province, is one of best cities to visit because of the well preserved Hanok Village.

Korean Street Food: A Peninsular Culinary Adventure

Korean cuisine is a cornucopia brimming with hot soups, stringy noodles, barbecued meats, unidentified vegetables and lip melting spices. With every pyeong of Korea’s megalithic cities given over to dining, it’s no wonder so much food has spilt out onto the busy streets. Good thing too, because it’s out here, free from the entrapment of four walls, where the street food connoisseur can chow down some of the best dishes on the peninsula. Here are some of the most popular street food delicacies:

Korean Street Bread

Here in Korea, street breads are very popular.  These waffle-like breads are usually filled with red bean paste, chocolate, or flavored custard.  They come in all different shapes like fish shaped (bungeoppang) or even poop shaped (dongbang)!   In this simple recipe, I show you the technique for making your own Korean street bread at home.

Below, I am enjoying  some dongbang!  It’s cute isn’t it?

What I ate in Thailand Part 2

This is a continuation of some of the food I tried while I was on my recent Thailand adventure. Again, my apologies for the photo quality, hopefully you can overlook the blurry-ness of some and poor lighting of others, and just enjoy them anyways!

As you can see from this, and Part 1 of the post, I ate some rather adventurous foods. I think that when you go somewhere new, you should really take advantage of the new-ness of everything! So foods that maybe are strange or wierd to you back home, and are normal for the people here, are things you should try. So yes, I tried as many of the new-to-me foods as I could.

My observations:


What I ate in Thailand Part 1

Wow! What an amazing trip! I was only gone 10 days and yet managed to cram in as much as possible! I traveled from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, stayed there for 2 nights, then up to Pai for 3 nights, back down through Bangkok to Ko Chang for 4 nights and then back to Bangkok and home! I made so many wonderful friends, enjoyed incredible experiences, saw all kinds of sites, had amazing food, and I challenged myself in new ways. I did everything from a cooking class, ziplining, jungle trekking (where we actually built our own bamboo shelter), city walking tours, night markets, street markets, scootering, hiking, swimming in waterfalls, snorkelling, elephant riding to massage and even more! I keep thinking it was my first solo adventure- but actually it wasn’t: I went to Korea on my own, have traveled quite a bit here and also did my own excursions in Quebec and Montreal and some more of the rural areas there.


Korea’s favorite snack

Street foods are a favorite among locals, expats and tourists in South Korea.  The most popular and often beloved of these foods is Ddeokbokki.

Ddeokbokki (do-bo-ki) is everything one looks for in the perfect street food, or any food for that matter: It’s commonly found, inexpensive, fulfilling and most importantly – delicious!

FALLing in Love with Korea in Autumn

I can feel it.

There's a crispness in the air that whispers fall is close.  So close, in fact, that the first hints of autumn colors can be seen streaking the mostly verdant leaves that canopy the green spaces of Seoul. The aroma of roasting chestnuts permeates the busy streets downtown.  Sweaters take over the storefronts of Myeongdong, Dongdaemun, and Sinsa, the shopping havens of the city.

Yes, I can feel it.  And I'm giddy.

You see, there's something about autumn that makes my heart beat a little faster.  There always has been.  When I lived in America, it was tailgating and trick-or-treating that did it for me.  But here, in Korea, there are a number of things that instill a sense of infatuation deep within me that keep me waiting for this beautiful season every year.

The largest fish market in South Korea is found in downtown Busan, next to the busy shopping area of Nampo-dong and adjacent to the Lotte Aqua Mall. That it occupies such a valuable, central location speaks to how important the fish trade has always been to the city.
