Food in Korea

After a lifetime of eating my mom's Korean food and hearing her stories of food in Korea, I was pretty excited to eat on my trip. Once I was served this delighful bibimbap on the plane, I knew I was off to a good start.

Well, okay AFTER I ate this very American but very delicious brunch.

This was actually more of a snack. Tteokbokki (spicy rice cake), jeon (pancake) and japchae (noodles).

One night we had BBQ. Thank goodness for the giant tube sucking away the hot air and smoke while we grilled up our food.

I love how you get lots of little things in dishes to try.

Another snack we stopped for at a street vendor. We just pointed at things and she served it to us.

Some of the best food to be had.

Gimbap and mandu.

And on our last night... a traditional meal. Bibimbap and...

Jeon and bulgogi.

Perfect meal for our last night in Korea.

Oh but wait. There was the plane ride home where I was treated to ssambap... rice and hot sauce (and in this case bulgogi) wrapped in lettuce. Seriously I have never had such good food on a plane.
