Continuing the collection of food snaps–
I mentioned in one of my earlier food posts but Korea has a type of fast food that is unlike the burgers and fries that you typically think of (although we have that as well). Fast food that is unique to Korea is called “Bunsik” (분식). It refers to typically inexpensive, ‘snack’-type dishes that are made quickly to eat. There are restaurants wholly dedicated to bunsik. Below is an example. We had Mini kimbap (꼬마 김밥) and Jjajang Tteokbokki (짜장 떡볶이).
And lastly, we discovered a restaurant that fits into the theme of this blog quite well called Idang (이당). (I use the word discovered because you literally have to drive into an unmapped area to find this place) It’s a bistro that has the look of a traditional Korean house (hanok style) but serves Italian food! There seemed like quite a lot of fusions going on in this place…

And the food! Which was actually very very good. If there’s anything Korea does right, it’s the food.
