Food Adventure in South Korea

and here it comes the crucial part about Korea herself. Their food! I hope they will make you drool that you want to fly there right this second. But, oh well not everyone like their food so I'll just leave them here. See if you're tempted to try. There are two categories here, 1) Restaurant and 2) Street food.

RESTAURANT

1. Yooganae Restaurant
Only seafood fried rice is suitable for muslim. It tastes the bomb. 
Price = 5500 won/person
Where = Myeongdong (landmark : H&M, Uniqlo Main Building & Shinhan Bank)
Verdict = 10/10



It doesn't look appetising compared to Mr. Dakgalbi but taste wise; Yooganae > Mr. Dakgalbi

5. Sindang Tteokpokki Town
Tteokpokki is rice cake. The difference here is, tteokpokki is eaten with ramen hence the rapokki name. There's no specific restaurant. And again, only seafood rapokki is suitable for muslim.
Price = 6000 won/person
Where = Sindang (Sindang Station, Line 2, Exit 6/8)
Verdict = 8/10
