Korea Part One: (Almost) All We Ate

A fourteen-hour trans-Pacific flight, into a country coming fresh off a presidential election that elected its first female dictator’s daughter as president. Record low temperatures throughout the trip, snow showers (gift of a white Christmas and New Year’s Day).

All of this, our footsteps, our itinerary, our schedule, can be summed up in thirty-seven dishes. The first part of INL’s four-part Korea series, here are (almost) everything we ate in twelve days. Korean cuisine is much more than barbeque and bibimbap (although we had plenty of that as well). From the best sushi joint in Gangnam, Seoul, to the bustling dine-ins in the Myungdong street market, from the beaches of Busan to the ancient tombs of Kyungju, this slideshow captures the breadth and depth of Korean food. To view the full-size photos, please click on any one of them and view as a slideshow.

Enjoy, and may your mouth water.

    • Thank you, glad you like it! Only if photos can capture the sizzling sound and aroma…maybe I can do something about the sizzle.

      • I almost wish you had made the pics x-large so I could get an even closer look!

      • Did you try clicking the pics to view them as a slideshow? That could help.

      • yes, perfect! thanks for the tip.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Great work!

    • Thanks Lewis! I did not hire a designer for the theme. It’s actually a customized WordPress theme. I like simple, minimalist designs.

  3. That is a good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.

    Simple but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one.

    A must read post!

  6. It’s nearly impossible to find well-informed people for this topic,
    however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about!

  7. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great graphics
    or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Excellent blog!
