Food in South Korea
Ok South Korean food is amazing, I’ve eaten a ton of it, if you want to eat some really unique food then some of my personal favorites are;
Live Octopus (Sannakji) – They cut up the tentacles of a live octopus and serve it immediately, they usually serve it with a light seasoning of sesame oil. This is a really unique experience because the tentacles are still squiring, when you poke them with your chopsticks they will start moving all over the plate and when you put them in your mouth be warned because the suckers still work so they will stick to the side of your mouth and your tongue when you put them in your mouth. Make sure you chew them a lot before swallowing.
Cow’s Stomach(Gopchang) – Each of the 4 cow stomachs are separately named dishes, unfortunately I’ve forgotten their individual names, but they are all quiet delicious. The 3rd stomach is by far the best, so I’d go for that one. They can be a little pricey though.
Dog Meat Soup (Bosintang) – Now this one is a bit of a moral dilemma, so it’s not for everyone, but if you want to try it you can find it quite easily in Korea. To be perfectly honest it isn’t that great of a meal, it has a weak beef flavor in my opinion. It’s something you eat so that you can say you’ve tried it.
