52 snaps of what i ate in South Korea!

but...of course, this wasn't ALL i had while i was there.
some just didn't make it to my camera phone because...of certain factors like:
1) i was too hungry.
2) i was too hungry and lazy (to snap).
3) i was too hungry and lazy and cold and my phone was in the bag.
4) i was at the table with elders/ new acquaintance/ hands were dirty-oily.

nonetheless, let me share the joy...with the little i have at the moment :)

(부대찌개/budejjigae, "army squad stew"): Soon after the Korean War, meat was scarce in Seoul. Some people made use of surplus foods from US Army bases such as hot dogs and canned ham (such as Spam) and incorporated it into a traditional spicy soup. This budae jjigae is still popular in South Korea, and the dish often incorporates more modern ingredients such as instant ramen noodles.
