Trip to Seoul: Korean food-porn

So this is the first post about my trip to Seoul! I hope you're excited because I have 2, maybe 3 more to make...because every time I write, the posts get too long...

I realize it's a bit off topic...I Always told myself to keep the love for food and the love for fashion separate...but well too late now ;P

My Japanese friends already told me, a trip to Korea would mean eating great food every day. I love Korean food and..food is everywhere, restaurants, cafe's and little food stalls on the streets too!
So let me share my food pictures with you :3

My friend said not all girls like this so much because it smells of pork, but I don't mind, love that stuff~


This was Chijimi, korean kind of crusty pancakes that everyone loves...ohhh this stuff is so great TT^TT



This was one of the little food stalls, that sold this thing..


It's kind of like a donut, with a honey/sesame sauce inside.. somehow with the honey sesame combi I find traditional Korean sweets not unlike Turkish sweets to be honest...


The advertisement for a poop cafe...we didn't go~ _o_

Bibimbap! Another one of those dishes noone can dislike, it's a bowl of rice with several things on top, different types of vegetables like cabbage, kimchi (of daikon I think) mushroom, cucumber, bean sprouts...and then you mix it all...it somehow tastes really nice :)


This is a long potato on a stick...nothing too special, they have it in Japan too but it's just fun to see!

This spicy chicken stew was super spicy! if you eat this you won't need makeup anymore...you naturally get a cute blush, teary looking eyes and plump red lips ;)

Korean Chinese food! I loved Japanese Chinese food, but the Korean Chinese food is good too, it's a little closer to the Chinese we eat in Holland, lots of deep-fried things with slightly sweet sauce.. This was deep-fried pork with sour berry sauce and onions...omg so delicious! And the colors looked nice for the picture too :)

Of course, topokki, I ate it in it's more usual form later, but on a stick is good too :) this stuffff!

And icecream with a bit of..beehive on it it seems... you can chew on it forever and it's quite tasteless once the honey is gone...but a fun experience :)
I don't think this is necessarily Korean, it might have been a foreign chain~

This was my friend's mom's homemade gyoza! I actually helped stuffing and folding the gyoza too, it was fun work and the result was so yummy!!


This is Korean shaved ice, it's got berry sauce on it and you get to pour sweet red bean...stuff over it, and some sweet mochi :) it was very good, I never ate red beans with shaved ice in Japan...I don't know whether they have that...
But I love red beans and I will miss it in here :( I can buy some red bean stuff at the Japanese or Korean supermarket but it's pricey you know..


This is the last picture I've got! This was a Korean noodle/shabu shabu fusion! Shabu Shabu is Japanese meat fondue and the noodles were Korean Kalguksu noodles, in this spicy kimchi soup... it was so delicious guys..

My friend took great care of me in Korea and I was never hungry ^^;; love this food so much!!!

I have a lot of Korea posts..not sure whether I should post them all consecutively or have breaks in between...the latter might be better...
