Korea Travelogue: Cherry Blossom Galore and Misc

My last post on our vacation in beautiful Korea! I have always wanted to try Kraze Burger but the snake queue at the Marina Bay Sands outlet was off-putting. We walk passed Kraze Burger in one of the Myeongdong’s  shopping centres and took the opportunity to savour these premium burgers. Their beef patties are made daily with Australian whole chucks to enhance the freshness and tenderness of the meat. Lip-smackingly good!

After dinner, our guide brought us to watch the Jump, a comedic theatrical performance involving acrobatics, martial arts and dance moves.

Breakfast was mediocre, but thankfully there was a Paris Baguette close by. After indulging in so many BBQ meals, this fresh sandwich was a much welcomed change.

We proceeded for more shopping at Sinchon and went back again to Myeongdong for more, and more shopping. We shopped from 3pm until 12 midnight. Quite crazy huh!

But of course we had to fill our tummies first 🙂 Lunch at a Japanese cafe in Sinchon, only 6900 Won ( SGD$8.40). Excellent for money as the serving was huge.

One of the must-try food in Korea is seasoned fried chicken. Known as Yangnyoem Tongdak, these fried chicken are sinfully good and worth every calorie. Rave alert! There are many restaurants serving as Yangnyoem Tongdak, and we chanced upon a stretch of such outlets in one of the shopping districts.  Since I didn’t do any prior research, we picked Chir Chir Fushion Chicken factory (서울시마포구서교통 403-1 ) based on the pictures displayed. Glad that we made a fantastic choice; the food dishes we ordered is worthy of gazillion bites!

Although the shop front looks small from the outside, fret not, many tables are available on the 2nd and 3rd level.

Looks irresistible hey? Drooling yet?

Another must-try is the banana milk, one of the best sellers in since 1974. You can find this in Korean Supermarkets in Singapore too (packet version).

On the last day of our vacation, we had a short stopover at a mini-mart close-by the airport. Here you can find an extensive variety of Korean seaweed and snacks. The staff will pack it into a cardboard box, seal it and you can check it in. Super convenient.

I highly recommend the BBQ Rib flavour seaweed as well as the Loess Salt Roast flavour seaweed.

Avoid the cuttlefish though. It’s so tough, my jaws hurt badly after trying to gnaw 1/4 of it. I could hear my jaws grinding away, that’s how bad it was.

I’m a happy girl!

Korean Airlines needs to improve on thier food. The only thing acceptable was the ice cream
