As I mentioned in a previous post, I decided to spend Christmas in South Korea 🙂
I had the most AMAZING Christmas eve dinner EVER. I wandered into a little restaurant in a shady looking part of the city of Pusan and pointed to something that looked good on the menu (I know ZERO Korean.) It was kimchee chigae – a spicy kimchee soup with beef and tofu in it and a ton of those AMAZING side dishes they Koreans give you. It was one of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had and filled me so full I was going to burst.
One thing I’ve learned is that you find the best food in the most average or mediocre neighborhoods and small restaurants. I always look for places like this when I travel and am more often than not greeting with great meals.
The amazing thing … it was only 5,000 won or about $5.34!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Korea was AWESOME. I’ll post more photos soon. I might not get around to it until the new year though because on Friday I leave to Taiwan!!!! I’m spending New Years in Taipei, w00t!!!
I’ve decided a normal life is boring … I want to see the world now 🙂
