Wrapping up my South Korea travel in its entirety with this last post. Starting with… cheesecake?

P1120095

Extremely cheesy pizza. Koreans know how to use their cheese!

P1120098

Forgot what this was… but it was alcoholic.

P1120089

Bread that tasted like a pair of Nikes. Apparently. According to my friends.

P1120099

I’m guessing having a real horse inside an indoor restaurant wouldn’t smell too inviting…

P1120169

assorted banchan of seaweed, kimchi, bean sprouts, unknown stuff, more seaweed (kelp), and little fishies.

P1120170 P1120172 P1120173

Hot boiling soon tofu soup!

P1120174

With hot steaming… red bean rice? It was bomb! The lady saw how much of a newbie I was and taught me how to eat the set properly; I was supposed to scoop out of the rice from the stone bowl then pour hot water inside that bowl and cover it up so it’ll loosen up and then finish it later. /run-on sentence

Oh yea and a grilled steak patty too… made from ground beef.

P1120186

More BBQ chicken… wings!

P1120187

Seafood pancake

P1120196

A plate of rice, bulgogi, kimchi, and tomatoes.

P1120198

Some gooey peach drink with nata de coco. Too sweet.

P1120199 P1120200 P1120202

Since it was strawberry season, many cafe, bakeries and whatnot have seasonal strawberry special drinks and pastries. Like fresh strawberry donuts at Krispy Kreme. Even donuts can have nutritional values now!

P1120205

Especially when you pair it with FRESH strawberry juice!

P1120206

I think I’ve found the key for foreign companies to enter the fast food market in Korea: Just add bulgogi to the menu. Seriously. There’s bulgogi burger at Mickey D’s, Burger King, and even bulgogi taco at Taco Bell. You just can’t go wrong with that stuff.

P1120420 P1120421

A Hello Kitty Cafe? I know a few people who would kill to come here!

P1120422 P1120426 P1120428 P1120429 P1120430

So this is what Korean Chinese food looks like… More similar to American Chinese food than I wanted to. Too starchy!

P1120538

That sweet Korean rice drink… The name escapes me but it was very refreshing!

P1120539

That master over there is hand pulling noodles. This was a Shanghai special restaurant.

P1120541

Jan Jan fried rice.

P1120542

boiled dumplings!

P1120544 P1120545

And more jajan myeon! The black sauce is a thick bean sauce with veggie bits mixed in. According to my friends, Koreans eat this a lot in drama.

P1120547

A different rice drink. Also refreshing.

My last meal in Korea. I wanted Bibimbap but I missed the last order :( So I got stuck with grilled steak patty and rice. Cheapest I can find on the menu. Still good though.

There was just too much I want to try but sadly, my stomach only has so much space and so little time. Then there are probably even more awesome things that I didn’t get to try because I didn’t know they existed! The food was probably the best part of my trip there ^^;. Hmm… Maybe a Seoul Inochi is in order? Haha just kidding. One week in Korea was definitely not enough. Wish I had more time… and more money…

Speaking of time, I can’t believe my second term in Japan is almost over already. Finals are approaching, paper deadlines are creeping up, and my time here is also running out… So much to do, so little time…
