I promise we aren't through with the Philippine posts, they have just been delayed for a bit. Mostly because they require a good bit of concentration and writing, and I haven't had the energy for it this past few weeks. So I am instead going to provide you with some pictures of common Korean food. I realized that you may not have an idea of what we eat on a daily basis so I thought I would share it with you.
This is a cold soup with slimy seaweed. Soup just shouldn't ever be cold!
I think this is fried potatoes.
I don't know. It has a kimchi flavoring but I'm just not sure what else is in it.
This is flavorless eggs. No salt or seasonings are added to this steamed egg.
Sweet an salted fried seaweed. Pretty good.
"Do you like dofu?" the fellow Korean asked. "Dofu? What is that?" I asked. "It is bean." she answered. "Bean? like bean paste?" "yes, dofu." she answered. In the end I substituted the "d" with a" t". TOFU! Yes, I like tofu. This tofu is fried.
Pork with veggies. That looks familiar right?
A fresh tasting pepper.
I don't recall if this is cucumber of zucchini but either way it tastes like kimchi.
It's not worms. I think it is raddish (they have larger varieties) in kimchi sauce again. Are you starting to gather how much they love kimchi?
I normally love eggplant however this eggplant is served cold. I don't understand why they have to ruin dishes by serving them cold.
Seaweed or spinach in kimchi flavors.
This is not tofu. This is a jelly made from acorns. I didn't know you could make accorn jelly either. What does it taste like? Nothing. It tastes like nothing. Thats why you cover it in soy sauce, to give it flavor.
These are a kind of rice cake. There is a potato inside.
Here is a close up of it.
If you guys like this post, let me know, so I can get the camera out to take more pictures of the weird food they feed people in Korea.
