South Korea- Street Scenes of Maisan Provincial Park 2

A street vendor at the foot of the mountain near the Tapsa Temple in Maisan Provincial Park in Jeonju, South Korea. It was really interesting to look at what they are selling.

This pot of cocoon really put me off. It was really scary. How could one eat this?

These are some internal organs of the pig.

Sausages for sale...look yummy.

Chilli sauce

Another food vendor that we saw, was selling these duck eggs wrapped in clay.

Does this looked like pop corn to you?

A korean woman using the traditional method of pounding the rice cake flour and made them into rice cake.

These boxes are what the above korean lady was making.

South Korea-Street Scenes of Maisan Provincial Park 1

This is a long walk from the car park of Maisan Provincial Park where its 2 mountain peaks resemble the ears of a horse. We were supposed to walk from the carpark to the foot of the mountain where the Tapsa Temple was. Along the long stretch of road, we could see very colourful street scenes where food vendors are selling their food.

Food Vendors selling BBQ black pig meat along the road.

Also on sale were some wild birds.

South Korea-Seoul-Hanjeonsik Lunch

We had a delicious and wonderful lunch which they called Hanjeonsik, the most expensive food in South Korea. It was once served to the emperor.

You can see the waiters in traditional costumes carrying the whole table to you. We had to sit cross legged on the floor.

Spread on the table are so many dishes of wonderful food. We could hardly believe our eyes. It was so colourful and wonderful.

The waitress in traditional hanbok will cut some of the food in smaller pieces.

This is a cold dish of crabs. Of course our signature dish of chilli crabs is still the best. :)

South Korea-Bibimbap Dinner

This is known as the famous bibimbap (just like our claypot rice), you need to add some red sauce (like chilli sauce but not spicy), then start to mix them around.

After mixing, this is how it looked like. I love scrapping the bottom of the pot for burnt rice, it tasted good. Yummy.

And then this is the accompany soup where I spotted some familar "yong tau foo in it.

There are some tang hoon(glass noodles) and bacon added to it.

South Korea-Teppanyaki Lunch

We left Jeju Island and boarded a smooth ride to Seoul. We boarded the bus with a 2 hours ride to Nami Island. We had lunch at a restaurant near the boat jetty.

It was teppanyaki chicken lunch. It was so good. You can see the steam coming out of the chicken.

After the chicken was cooked, the chef added some rice to it and fry together. Yummy.
