I was too pooped last night to post this so I'm a day late on this one...we didn't have a mission today so we decided on Gyongbokgung Palace. Yah, we had to do at least one educational thing on this trip! It was a perfect day to go on a tour...
Started off with breakfast at a little 24 hour noodle place near our hotel. This is Randy's meal, around $5. That musubi was delicious!
Here's mine, $4. His was hot, mines was cold. Tasted like a somen soup, the broth tastes just like the dashi
We got lucky! It was some kind of cultural day so admission was free!
There were free walking tours so we joined in...we lasted about half an hour...I know, so bad yah? We broke off and went back to Namdaemun so Randy could look for sunglasses and I could get a snack :)
While he was looking at glasses I saw a vendor selling these for 700won (about 65 cents). It was good! It was a Korean pancake type texture with a mandoo like filling.
If you go by Gate 2, you'll see a line outside like this
The line moves pretty fast, they are cooking another pancake type thingy with a chap chae filling! Yum! It was only 1000 won!
Note to self...wait until the darn thing cools off before taking a bite! The darn thing burned my tongue.
It was big enough for us to share...
Walking around Insadong...
I thought this Seoul mural was so cute!
It was time for dinner and we wanted to try fried chicken. Sooooo didn't disappoint!!
Since we had an early dinner, we went back to the room to rest a little. By 8:00 we were ready to head out again. We checked out Myeong Dong, a crazy shopping street with a ton of street food! Too bad we were still full from dinner so we only tasted a couple of things :(
hehehe, yup, had to try it! It was 3000 won. DELISHHHH!
We were gonna try this potato chip thing but decided against it
I did see a dude grilling this tako though, it looked really good. I couldn't resist
This is after he added mayo, bonito flakes and some kind of sauce....it was really good! I think it was 3000 won
