After stopping the carbohydrate-free diet, breakfast got more colour with rye bread.
I had breakfast in Jeju city with friends before taking a flight to Seoul. We visited a fish-soup restaurant. We four ordered the same menu, fish soup. The soup looked simple—horse mackerel and cabbage, but perfect for stomach-soothing for hangovers. I enjoyed the soup and side dishes as well. Side dish included yellow crocker jjorim(stew-like), […]
Although dwaeji gukbap(pork soup with rice) is prevalent in Korea, it’s challenging to meet a decent-quality one. Guided by a local in Seoguipo, Jeju island, I happened to have an excellent soup. It tasted simple, clean and chemical-free, but with the authentic flavour of the food. I guessed the cook understood well the pork meat […]
My wife and I were on a work trip in Daegu. As being in Daegu, we visited a famous flat dumpling house. The house has moved to another location nearby. Like a rule, when moving, especially to a fancier place, food gets worse. The house was not an exception. I suppose that I would not […]

Asked and recommended by an habitant, we visited, so-called, the most popular grill house in Wontong. We tried marinated and not marinated fresh pork rib. and Meghan and Camilla seemed to enjoy […]
Before dinner, desired to have THE famous Daepohang fry in Sokcho. There’s only one house I like. I enjoyed various fried stuff: shrimp, baby crab, sweet potato, chilli, perilla leaf.

Vegetables for breakfast as always, but good to have beetroot this morning. Beetroot, marinated, and slightly poached. A bowl of beansprouts to fill up.
I visited the town’s old market in Mukho and tried brown-sugar-filled pancake(호떡; hotteok). It tasted delightful to recall my young days, which is extremely rare nowadays. The grandma cook told us that she did the same job for more than thirty years. I liked more her look than her long career.
