There's some color on the tips of the trees! Hooray! Autumn is my favorite season and I'm incredibly sad I'll miss it back home. The smell of burning leaves, hoddie weather, crisp air....ahh, I miss it so much! Hopefully this means it's coming for Korea, too~
Anyway, some fun things in Korea that you either have to get or do!
- Korean Socks
Yep, Gangnam Style socks. They were only 1,000won....a little less than 1USD! So hard to pass these up when you pass by street vendors selling them.
- Pony Brown
- Sticker Booths
Yep. Nutella in a donut. It might be the most delicious thing I've ever had. I'm gonna get it again soon. When in Rome, right? Haha. Well, when in Korea...do as Koreans do! And they do donuts so, so right. The next is somewhat similar. Some people might not know this, but Korea doesn't have a separate type of foods for breakfast like in the West. It's hard to find a good American breakfast here!
This, though, was so amazing. It was at Tomo Cafe again in Sinchon. It came with the half waffle, scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, a banana, and a salad. It was so heavenly I thought I would cry! Tomo Cafe does it so well, I was very impressed! I've heard that Butterfingers is a supposed AMAZING breakfast place for westerners, so I'll have to check that place out soon and report back. Now back to Korean food!
I had 도시락 (doshirak) for dinner tonight. It's Korea's version of a bento box. I got 소고기 (beef) and tonkatsu. It came with a side of sweet pickles (YES!), pickled...something yellow, kimchi, and rice. The beef tasted like my mom's pot roast back home...so tasty! It was really good and incredibly cheap. It was about 3,500won. I'll be eating here again soon!
Anyway, those are some fun things that have happened or I've seen lately!
