20 Scrumptious and (sometimes) Strange Korean Meals

Ok, so I’ve spoken before about my ‘Top 20 Weird and Wonderful Korean Snacks’ which I’ve had the joy of trying while living in Korea. Now I think it’s the time to look at Korean meals, which I’m pleased to say have been on the whole, a positive experience. That is, after we learnt the names of some Korean foods. Let’s just say that our first meal here was a bit of a disaster- not knowing what anything was, we picked a random item off the menu, and ended up with a ‘jjigae’ (stew) that was so spicy we were sweating by the end (despite it being about 5 degrees in the restaurant). We went home with runny noses and burning mouths to down about a litre of milk each. Good times.

Voyage to Ulleungdo, Gem of the East Sea

Over Chuseok vacation, I headed to Ulleung Island, a destination I had been dreaming of visiting for quite some time.  Situated in the East Sea (or the Sea of Japan to all of you living outside of Korea), Ulleungdo is an island that promises visitors spectacular scenery, tasty seafood, and a chance to relax far from the chaos of the mainland, which is what I was most looking forward to on this trip.

Well today's blog is about the Korean style BBQ food which is very popular in among young genereation. Last Friday I dined at a restaurant which is most famous in Geoje for the BBQ style food. The resturant name is "Lee Seo" which offers the most amazing BBQ in the town. Korean barbecue are style food has grilled beef, pork, chicken and fish.


In Korean they sometimes call it Gogi Gui , Gogi as I told you means meat and Gui means roasting, Meat Roasting.
