Not everything you can eat in Korea is going to be delicious. Many foreigners come here and right off the boat the moment they eat anything, they say it’s “delicious”. It doesn’t even matter what it is. It may not even be Korean food!
Don’t get me wrong, there are many, many foods here that are completely and utterly addictive. There’s no questioning that.
HOWEVER, there will be some things here available to eat that you’d probably wish were not available.
Here’s my list of 4 of them. Happy dining!
What is it?
South Korea is a country where you can very easily notice and identify trends–trends in fashion, hairstyles, and yes, FOOD! Every summer there seems to be a new ice cream trend. This year, one of those trends is liquid nitrogen ice cream! Different chains with the same concept are opening up all over Seoul and Busan, and we finally made our way to Nampo-dong in Busan to check out Flask. It looks like a laboratory and the “scientists” even wear white lab coats while they make your ice cream!
Pop over to Tom Gates’ “The Red Dragon Diaries” where he has posted the video of our first (and last?) taste of “San-nak-ji,” or live octopus, a popular raw seafood treat for soju-swilling diners in Busan, South Korea.
Footnote: after we’d finished filming, a group of middle-aged folks sat behind Tom and ordered some food, including their own plate of live octopus, which they gleefully began to tear into without much hesitation. Hey, someone’s enjoying it!
This time we taste a famous Korean ice cream bar – the 돼지 바 Dwegi Bar! Is it good?! Why would they call it a pig bar? We have no idea!

Saint Augustin Restaurant Review
When I think of Thailand I think of Paradise. I think of Escaping a dreary Seoul winter. I think of Lazy days spent lounging on white sand beaches, sipping fresh coconuts topped off with Sang Som, riding elephants, and discovering some of the most stunning views I could ever dream of. But above and beyond, when I think of Thailand I think of their dynamite food!
