Korea Day 1 (Local Snacks For Teatime)

on Jan 5, 2010
It's been a norm for both me and my darling to go searching for local snacks/delicacies whenever we go travelling... So as usual, we found some really nice and special snacks in Korea...


PRESENTING...


'Sausage wrap in flour'... Koreans really love to eat sausages... Everywhere you go, you will see a lot of people selling sausages... We found this really special and decided to give it a try... Not bad but it was not as nice as we hope...


I don't know what to call this... But it was cooked in a fashion just like our 'lok lok' in Malaysia... They will put this in some kind of soup and boiled it until it was cooked... My darling just loves this... Really nice indeed... Highly recommended...


In my opinion, this was the best of the lot... I really love this... A fish like thing that I also don't know what to call... They stuffed red beans as the filling and it was really really nice...


My darling enjoying all the snacks!!! Yummy!!!


To be continue...

the second picture is the one you talking about... yeah is something like our 'fei chai lok lok'... people will stand there and eat...

there are a few delicacies that we didn't try out... frankly speaking we won't try it anyway... one is dog meat and the second one is eating live octopus!!!

Gosh, Dog meat!! But i heard that it is legal for them to eat dog meat...

Dave said...

yeah is legal... our tour guide from korea loves to eat dog meat!!!

-Celestial- said...

that means koreans wont have a dog as their pet then~~

i heard some old folks tale saying that if u eat the dog meat, the other dogs will sense that u r eating their genre and will bark or chasing u whenever see u...~

Dave said...

i don't know bout this... but frankly speaking i didn't see any korean with dog when i'm there... maybe is just too cold and they don't bring their dog out...

hmm never heard of this before... maybe you can try it out and let me know the outcome!!! :)

No way~!!

Dave said...

wakakaka... i guess you are afraid that the dogs might eat you rather than you eat them!!!
