i wasn’t too good about taking a lot of pics while in seoul, but here are a few.
building at deoksugung, one of several palaces:
at inwangsan, a buddhist shrine:
deokbokki along with (from near to far): fried gimbap (korea’s version of sushi, here mostly just rice noodles wrapped in gim, korea’s version of nori), some fried seafood i think and mandu (korean wontons), and fried carrots/scallions i think and fried sweet potatoes. the sweet potatoes there are yellow and soo good.
various kinds of fried doughnuts/rice cakes (ddeok). the ones on the left have red bean in them. the ones at the top of the picture are called hoddeok and are soo good. they have brown sugar in them, which gets nice and gooey. i craved them the whole time i was there, but unfortunately only had them once. am def. going to have to go back for more.
