I have a lot of other blog posts waiting in the pipeline of my brain, but today I really needed to get this one out there.
Korean cuisine, much like Korean culture, is very different to what I grew up with and am familiar with: a weird blend of Western/ African/ Mediterranean. But just like the place, I’ve found many things to enjoy (and love) about the food. Here’s a list of some of the strangest things I never thought I’d end up eating on a regular basis.
Today’s lunch was … okay. I wish I’d had my phone on Tuesday because lunch was GREAT: tasty soup, fried tofu in sweet and sour sesame sauce, and a mystery meat stew that was darker, richer and more savoury than usual. YUM. As it is, you’ll just have to read about today’s okay lunch instead.
A rather excellent lunchee today. I have a happy tummy.
To begin with one of the ultimate clichés: time flies. Note that being a cliché doesn’t make it any less true; in fact, rather the opposite.
And by that I mean if I had eaten all of it, it would have revisited on me. Vom.
So @rubyyogi on Twitter has been asking me to upload pics of the lunches I so often Tweet about. As it’s a Friday and I’m done teaching for the day I thought I’d turn a Twitpic into a blog post and tell y’all about what I ate for lunch today at my elementary school on Jeju Island.
