Food from Korea 2010 – Part One

My closet is emptied and I’m finding it really hard to put everything back in.  I’m supposed to gather up the winter clothes and take them to my mom’s house for storage, but instead I thought I would torture my readers with some food pictures taken in Korea.  =P  It’s lunch time now, right?




Family dinner at home!

Lunch with the MR and Munchkin at Shinsaegae.  I only took a picture of half the banana split because Munchkin had already started digging in.  =P

Lunch at San Deul Hae.  If you look closely at the last picture, you can see that they clear the table by taking the whole top away.  Pretty cool huh?




Macarons in the French Village.




Dunkin Donuts!




Bbop Ggi on the streets of Myung Dong

At some hole in the wall restaurant in SokCho.  This reminds me that I *MUST* replicate this noodle dish.  It was literally heaven on a chopstick!

Dinner at one of the many seafood restaurants in the market.  Anyhow, it’s really time for me to go and start putting everything back into my closet!  I’ll be back soon with *MORE* pictures of food in Korea! 


  1. These pictures are amazing. You should organize some sort of tourist excursion to Korea for people who just want to eat.

  2. OMG..I loved these pictures..I want to go to the Motherland to eat and shop!!!

  3. The lighting on the first few photos are TOO perfect, it's almost studio quality. Definitely not a simple point-and-shoot job with a weak flash. I'd like to know how you pulled that off!

  4. @ anonymous - are you referring to the ones taken at ShinSaeGae? We were sitting next to a large floor to ceiling window so there was plenty of natural light. I used the macro setting with NO flash on my G11 and that's what I got. It ain't me, it's the camera! =)

  5. @KC Yes. I saw your post on the cameras you're using. That helps to explain a lot. Also, thanks for bringing Korean cooking to an approachable level.

  6. These pictures are making me hungry.

    Also want G11 as my small camera. As much as I love my GF1 sometimes I miss having a non-interchangeable lens camera.

  7. mmmm...Soon Dae! I can't wait until my next trip. I'm going to get me some soondae and dduk bokki sauce to mop it all up!! Yum~ Thanks for the pictures!!

  8. oh wow. so jealous!

  9. wooow everything looks sooo delicious *_*

  10. i really like your pictures they make my mouth watery...
