Food Spotting in South Korea

When I visited Korea last May 2014, I didn’t expect I’d get hungry so often. Probably because we had too much walking. I didn’t even notice I walked around Gyeongbokgung Palace all morning and for almost 7 hours in Everland.

But who could ever resist food when the stomach is grumbling? Some of the food I tried which I can’t find anywhere in Davao are:
image
Saboten’s Cheesy Tonkatsu in Times Square
image
Tuna Kimbap
image
Mr. Pizza’s Potato Gold Pizza

Pizza deliveries are everywhere in town.

Lookie! I found sakto in one of the vending machines in subway.
image
호떡 (Hotteok / Sweet Pancake)
image
식혜 (Sikhye / Sweet Rice Punch) in the subway.
Street food can be seen anywhere especially in crowded places and near tourist spots. It can fill up your stomach plus they are affordable unlike in restaurants.

삼겹살 (Samgyeopsal / Grilled Pork Belly) is one of the most popular Korean dishes.

Although the restaurants in Korea don’t offer as much side dishes as the K-restos in Davao, their servings are big portions.

These are the food we’ve tried from different places outside of Seoul:

image
닭갈비 (Dak Galbi / Stir-fry Chicken in Chili Pepper Paste)  in Chuncheon.
image
오리탕 (Ori tang / Duck stew) in Gomori.
image
곰탕 (Gomtang literally, bear soup / Beef Bone Soup) in Gyeongsan.
And the best part is – DESSERT!
image
Baskin Robbins’ Shooting Stars and Matcha Tiramisu
image
Ice Cream Balls in Everland
image
Caffé Bene’s Green Tea Tower Bingsu
image
Dunkin Donuts that’s almost as big as Danny’s face ㅋㅋ
Our healthy midnight snacks consist of fruits, nuts or milk.
image
참외 (Chamoe / Korean Melon)
image
딸기 (Dalgi / Strawberry)
image
바나나맛우유 (Banana Milk)
Lastly, a sumptuous meal at 탐라도회 with the whole family during my last night in Korea.

낙지 (Nakji / Live Octopus)
image
회 (Hoe / Sashimi)
잘 먹었습니다, 정말 감사합니다~~
