    Food: Bulgogi

    by emilytyc Updated Nov 15, 2004
    Dan Xia... look at this Bulgogi!

    Favorite thing: If you are in S. Korea, you have to try this signature dish! Its very tasty and all foreigners love it...

    Bulgogi is as typical as Kimchi when you mention Korean food. It is BBQ marinated beef, sliced thinly to obtain the sweet, juicy taste and it goes with sticky rice.

    Food: Bibimbab

    by emilytyc Written Nov 15, 2004
    Bibimbab: Before mixing...

    Favorite thing: This is also a popular dish... I love the taste. You have rice, meat, vegetables and paste served on a HOT claypot. Once the dish is served, use your utensils, and MIX everything together. You will hear sizzling sounds as you mix! ;o)

    Enjoy!

    Food for picnic: Kim Pap

    by emilytyc Written Nov 15, 2004
    Kim Pap... yummy!

    Favorite thing: When my host mother brought us to DMZ, she packed Kim Pap as our picnic food. I thought it looked really like the japanese sushi but it is actually bigger and more tasty.

    One roll of Kim Pap is enough to fill my tummy!!

    Korean Side Dishes

    by emilytyc Written Nov 15, 2004
    Part of the side dishes only...

    Favorite thing: This is a WOW! I still remembered, when I first went into a Korean restaurant, I was amazed at the amount of side dishes served! It could be between 8 to 20 side dishes depending on the restaurant.

    These are actually cold dishes and most of it features the famous Kimchi!! You can see kimchi in the picture. Kimchi is actually spicy pickled cabbage, they are all red in colour.

    You know what is the best thing?? ALL of these side dishes are FREE! Cooool....

    Slippery chopsticks

    by K1W1 Written Oct 13, 2004

    Favorite thing: This is a trap for young players - after getting along just fine with my chopstick skills in China and Sth East Asia, I quickly became unstuck in Korea. Here, for some reason they like to use metal chopsticks as opposed to the normal wooden or plastic versions. I found the metal to be very slippery and it was like I had to learn all over again - frustrating, but it gave my local friends a good laugh.

    Fondest memory: If you get the opportunity to go out with some local friends - jump on it. The Seoul that the locals know and love is likely to be much different than the city you're likely to see with a guidebook. There are some great places to eat, drink and be merry, and the Koreans would have to be among the genuinely friendliest in Asia.

    Favorite thing: Seoul has energy. Sure this is just me playing with Photoshop (TM), but since you can't hear the music, the cars, smell the petrol... I have to make you SEE it!
