Thank you for watching!

Of all the fun things to do in Seoul, there’s nothing like enjoying its world class cuisine.

Something I was excited to sample is a dish known as Haejangguk 해장국 or  “Hangover Soup.”

While the dish is known to cure the harshest of hangovers, I actually experienced a reverse effect – after eating I was so sleepy and satisfied all I wanted to do was take a nap.

Don’t miss the delicious South Korean food in Seoul!

    Oh, how many times have I wished for such a magical concoction! I’m considering moving to Korea just for the food. Kimchi in everything sounds pretty heavenly at this point. One of my favorite discoveries since moving to Asia. And that is some tender looking pork. I’m sitting here with a belly full of dinner salivating after such a dish.

    I’m curious, though. Are you traveling through Korea, or are you stopping there for a while? I’ve seen a couple of your other videos there, so I’m wondering how much time you needed to spend in Seoul to really get the city clock. My girl is a big fan of Korean dramas, and we’re both nuts about the food. Can it be done in a week or so?
