Korean food experience (again!)




First of all, let me answer some of your questions regarding the octopus dish:
Yes, it was excellent. How was it cooked ? The octopus was thrown in that wok together with some chinese cabbage, soy beans, peppers, lemongrass, and oil. Then, once it was cooked, we could add some soy sauce, wazabi, seagrass sauce, to the mix. Very tasty.

Today, after a long day walking from one temple to another, we passed by a food market, where every booth was offering new tastes and flavors. Of course, we couldn’t resist temptation and tried almost everything, in the following order (unfortunately for my digestion).

First, we stopped by a strange shop, looking like a museum. You had to enter from the left side, take a ticket, have a look on at different manga stickers on the walls, and when you exist, on the right side of the shop, a guy you take a kind of tube, fill it is vanilla ice cream, and here it goes.

.. Not sure I should have shared the above picture though…

Then we passed by this:

Just a potato, sliced with a secret technic, and fried. Awesome!

Then, we passed by this one. Her meat smelled marvelous. Once the meat on the grill, she was cutting it with scissors before adding some marinade with a brush, so that it would be even more tasty. And she was even removing the small, inevitable, carbonized pieces with her scissors.Capture d’écran 2013-10-04 à 15.15.10 Capture d’écran 2013-10-04 à 15.15.25
Good but terribly spicy so we had to find something sweeter to our mouths and lips.
That’s when we passed by a pastry shop.
The woman told me: “This is 100% sweet potato”.
So I understood: “Cool, an organic cake”.

But no, I should have just understood this was a sweet potato, not a cake made from it.
A bit heavy.
So we went for a drink.

In those regular drinks are some grains, probably made from tapioca… Alex had already tasted it in Philadelphia, so I guess this is more common than I think.
