Korea Seoul Myeongdong Fashion

24 March 2015

Fashion food

I have no strength left in my legs, timed it perfectly.
Anyway, what should I have for my last meal in Korea, a country famed for eating the same thing 3 times a day, every day of the year.
There are a few things I havent eaten, cold noodles with raw fish, anything featuring KFC style chicken, tteokbokki which I like but is seemingly only a street food not a meal, any of the all of a pig places, where you get literally all of a pig. I like pig but the serving size seem ridiculous and meant for 4 people.
So I was determined to have something different, Korean, and not in the above list.
After much searching including the new for me activity of standing still on the escalators (rather than bounding up) due to leg weakness, I found a place claiming to be the hottest new addition to Korean cuisine since bibimbap.
The place did have a few things I wanted, on the menu outside, but once seated, I got a different menu, and now the thing I wanted which involved a wholemeal savoury pancake rolled and filled with strange vegetables was no longer on offer.
Instead I ordered the house special, which had a suitably Korean name, which was OK I guess, but even now I dont know what it was!

Tomorrow I go to the airport all the way out at Incheon, then its a 4 hour flight to Hong Kong, then 6.5 hours in Hong Kong, then 10 hours to Melbourne, then 2 hours in Melbourne, then 1.5 hours to Adelaide.
Including travel time to airports at each end, I calculate this to be 27 hours. Awesome.

I think I am inside or underneath the Myeongdong catholic cathedral. Apparently the 2nd best thing to visit in Seoul according to tripadvisor, it appears to be a Jesus themed mall.


Korea-Seoul-Myeongdong-Fashion - Yes, can confirm, was indeed the cathedral I was under / in. Luckily I didnt buy anything.

Tables full of girls seemed to order what I got and share it, plus something else for themselves.

Like I said above, I am not sure what I ate. The rice looking thing was only part rice, I think it was various other grains too. The menu explained a bit about the origin of grains used in the store.
The soup was not miso, I dont know what it was, I think it had ginseng in it, I guess my many viruses are cured.
Among the side dishes was something I am sure was blended fish guts, but the place claims to be vegetarian, so I have no idea really. You can just see it in the photo, the bloody looking stuff behind the main bowl.
The spinach with what looks like coattage cheese, I doubt thats cheese, probably some sort of tofu.
I made sure I ate everything they gave me, cause it was like, $18 or something, so I wasnt going to let it go to waste.

Heres where you take your girl to buy some jewellery, by the numbers. Everything here, $5. Just go to the counter and tell them what number you have selected.
