The term “Seoul food” is overused, but then it’s hard to find a substitute as it encapsulate the essence of the food here perfectly.
Perhaps we were famished due to the long flight and cold weather, but I thought that our first meal at Seoul was tastiest. It was quintessential Korean food: Kimchi ramen, cheese tteokbokki (spicy rice cake) and kimbap, with a side of kimchi and cured radish. The rice cake… was the best I had tried in my life, way superior than the one sampled in Kuching or Melbourne.
We got so infatuated with the rice cake that we had it for another 3 times. =)
Then there’s also the Korean BBQ, which we also savoured… 3 times.
Of course, Seoul is not just about the BBQ and kimchi, there’s also the colourful bibimbap;
the ginseng chicken soup and pancake
tasty fried chicken – original and sweet & sour
and the food I found most interesting was.. real egg cake!
