Seoul Food

I recently came back from a trip to Korea with my family.  Here are a few Instagram'd pictures of the yummy food we had.

My latte to-go at Paris Baguette - Cutest coffee cup ever!

Beef stew with King and Shitake mushrooms

Simple and delicious "panchan" (savory crepes, pancakes and omelette shown here)

Cuttlefish salad with greens (cuttlefish was thinly sliced and greens were placed over it)

Corn porridge and grilled fish (possibly mackerel)

Refreshing green tea ice cream with green tea ice flakes, sweet red beans, and mochi (before and after!)

Sightseeing in Korea

Here are a few Instagram'd pictures of Seoul and Busan. I'm still thinking of the sites, the food, the people, and the energy of these cities.

[SEOUL] Changdukkung Palace (the Queen's Palace, a World Heritage Site)

[SEOUL] Insadong District - full of good restaurants, antiques, and inexpensive souvenirs

[SEOUL] Gangnam District - My favorite place to people-watch in Seoul

[BUSAN] Jagalchi Market - Huge fish market where you purchase the seafood on the first floor and can have it brought up to the second floor to be cooked any way you like.  Eating seafood sashimi-style is the most popular since everything is so fresh.

[BUSAN] Haeundae Beach - Empty now, but this is where everyone flocks to in the hot and humid summer months

[BUSAN] Shinsegae - The largest mall in the world according to the 2009 Guinness Book of World Records

[BUSAN] Street vendor selling flowers for Parents' Day
