I hope you’re not reading this while you’re hungry or late at night, because just posting all these pictures made me crave this food again. This is almost everything I ate during my Seoul trip and let me tell you, I was in food heaven. This was probably the best part about my trip to Seoul. Korean food is one of my favorite cuisines and I was super super excited to finally be able to eat some again (and not to mention, I finally got to eat spicy food!).
Bulgogi – This was hands down the best meal I had during my trip. I was in food heaven. The beef was so fresh and tasty and the broth, that was boiling in that bowl, made it even more delicious. If I could eat this everyday, I would.
Galbi – More delicious meat! I’m not a big fan of thickly sliced meat, but I must say, this meat was on point. It was so tender and juicy. I would eat steak more often if it tasted like this all the time.
Samgyetang – This was our most expensive meal during the trip at ₩25000 ($24 USD – I’m sure we could have found a cheaper restaurant though). The main ingredients in samgyetang are ginseng and a young chicken, boiled together to make this healthy soup. This was my first time eating black chicken!
Soondubu – This is my number one favorite Korean dish. This spicy, soupy, tofu-y goodness is so delicious and warming, especially on a cold winter night. This was the first meal we ate and it was such a great first meal. The restaurant, in Myeongdong, makes its own tofu, which was a plus. I love when restaurants make their own ingredients, because you can taste the freshness. I had soondubu three times while in Seoul and I wish I ate it more. I need to find a place here that serves soondubu….
Sweet Potato Latte – Did I ever tell you that I love sweet potatoes? Well I do. I wasn’t a big fan of the ones in the states, but Asian sweet potatoes are the best. This is basically a sweet potato in liquid form.
Boba – And of course, I had to stop for boba. There were so many shops and I haven’t had it since my first Osaka trip. I was having withdrawals.
