Korea Busan Food Neon Pho

12 March 2015

Subway retiree fight

Eating Pho in Busan

Tonight I went to an entirely different area, basically as far as the subway underground sock mall went, then I popped out to the surface.
I found myself in a very busy area. I dont really know what its called. It was not as big as last nights area, but still big.
I didnt stay out too long, even though its warm, but I did manage to see a live crab walking sideways across the street whilst a little dog barked at it, little did I know there would be more crab news later.
When I walked out my hotel, I noticed a restaurant across the street, advertising authentic Chinese beef noodle, the further I went away from it, the more I decided thats what I wanted, more on that later too.
To get back to my beef noodle possibility, I decided to ride the subway, normally I wouldnt mention that, but it was a hilarious sight to behold.
At each end of a subway carriage is an area reserved for old people. Normally they are engaged in debate about something, but on todays subway ride, some random old people whom I assume had never met before, decided to get out of their seats and start punching the air whilst hurling insults.
One old guy was hurling uppercuts and jabs whilst the other was winding up like a cartoon character, ready to unleash an almighty blow. I was too crammed in to photograph this unfortunately, but it had the whole carriage laughing.
I had to see how it ended and rode past my stop, a brave old lady with a walking stick smacked one of the guys on the back of the head, whilst another lady unleashed a fearful ear bashing that had both men sit back in their seats. The argument continued but alas, I got off the train.

And now, breaking news on Korean news, the local convenience store selling live crabs has been caught storing them incorrectly. Lots of footage of a thermometer inserted in a crab. This is on multiple Korean news channels simultaneously, each crew with their own thermometers. Thermometergate (crabgate?) is here to replace nutgate (nut heiress Korean airlines drama).

This heater is an amazing device. I simply could not believe the amount of heat it put out. Inside it is what looks like the afterburner off a fighter jet.
It was actually painful to stand near it.

And now my dinner. Chinese beef noodle was in the process of becoming Vietnamese Pho.
The menu was a strange hybrid, the decor was in the process of being changed (literally as I was eating).
I suspect once they run out of the remaining Chinese style food in their freezer, they will be Pho only.
So I got shrimp wonton soup, with rice noodles and pho broth. It was actually very good despite the fusion of Canton and Ho Chi Minh.
