Korea











In a world where you can shop all nite and the exchange rate is really good, Korea is my new favorite place in Asia. Don't get me wrong, the Japanese are good at snacks and the chinese have good dim sum, but nothing sat better in my stomach than a bowl of rice and kimchee and ginseng honey tea.

Plus where else will you find an apple carved like a cup, filled with fresh apple juice and sochu?

I learned that Duk Bok Gi, rice cakes, were my favorite snacks. And that only really fresh kim chee is served with Mandoo. I also sadly learned that homemade kimchee is a dying art because it costs too much to make it at home.

I'm so jealous, I want to go to Korea so badly. My Halmoni (grandma) still makes her own kimchee in her tiny Virginia apartment and she's 82! Maybe i should learn
