hey i’m back! i was busy spending my time with my lil sis who was coming back from perth (and she left today, sigh). during these 3 weeks she stayed, we went to macau and seoul. she has never been to south korea and isn’t willing to plan for travelling, so we “stucked” at the downtown in these 5 days.
since this is the 3rd time in seoul, i have to find out something i have longing for ages in seoul to make the trip special for myself, and one of these is the red bean congee where the restaurant is not near the subway station, so i have to use my broken korean to ask the locals the location. gosh i was so coward to speak korean and somehow i said “hello” to them first to let them know i was a tourist… to please them don’t use super fast and fluent korean to tell me back… anyway, i did it! and finished it hard without any red bean soup left on the bowl.
no more bullshit, tell me which dishes shown below you have tried!
breakfast: congee. best to begin with some healthy food in order to withstand the heavy taste dishes afterwards haha.
lunch: spicy ricecake, best with the instant noodle to absorb the soup (am i playing trick to myself? feeling hungry now…). don’t tell me you won’t eat ricecake in south korea, that’s… unbelievable.
3:15pm tea time: matcha iceflakes, latte and roll cake. it’s from o’sulloc which is famous in tea and the company has a tea farm in jeju island, south korea. ok i admit that iceflakes is mine haha!
dinner: bibimbap and soup dishes. there are always many side dishes like kimchi and seaweed and make the table full of dishes… a kind of leason of how to put them all within a table.
dessert: the red bean congee. it’s warm and made by red bean, chestnut, cinnamon, and some nuts on top of it. it is introduced in one of the korean variety shows called infinite challenge (it is my favourite show), and that’s why i was willing to walk walk walk and then ask ask ask…
late night food: donut. ignore what is calories and eat as many as you can (of course your stomach must have a good condition to withstand) during the travelling. krispy kreme is cross-overing with where’s wally in seoul, and the original favour is my favourite (it’s sooooo pity all the krispy kreme shops were closed down in hk, crying).
the food tour is well planned, right? give me some service charge haha.
