I wrote the other day about my birthday when I was in Korea ten years ago.
Because I was working for a month I had a good chance to sample may many foods, but not being one of those people who routinely photographs their food (there are better things to be doing with it, quite frankly) I don't have evidence of much of it. Photos I do have include:
Lunch was provided every day and usually consisted of soup, a rice dish, a meat dish, vegetables and desert. And kimchi - in fact, as much kimchi as you could eat. Some days were scrambled egg rather than meat, and other days the soup wasn't seaweed soup. Not often though. Strangely, for a country where all the foods seemed to consist of big robust and spicy flavours, school lunch seemed a bit lacking.
Goo-goo cones were my favorite. A peanut butter flavoured cornetto like ice cream. Ridiculously inexpensive and therefore a staple food for blokes on their own.
Many kinds of snackage, including Jollypong. From memory a sweetened variety of puffed wheat, eaten like peanuts. I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want a pack of Jollypong.
After work a couple of beers and a bar-b-q dinner was the standard option, sometimes preceeded by a bowl of manduguk, a dumpling soup. Other dishes tried included a very (very) spicy black pudding stew, salted (and chillied) herring (I think), and lots of rice rolls. I also became a fan of many varieties of street food.
