Swon is a native Korean and so she took us on a culinary tour of Busan. We started Friday night with an excellent sushi restaurant. But Saturday was the triple crown and I could barely keep up, due to a bug I was fighting. We stared with a traditional Korean breakfast at the fish market. The fish was so fresh and pan fried right from the boats. My only struggle was sitting on the floor under the traditional low Korean table. For lunch, we went to a beautiful Korean dining room ( with chairs!) and had a 8 course feast consisting off young Ginseng roots, a snail soup, grilled prawns, and traditional Korean pancakes including red bean, mushroom and pumpkin.
By dinner time, I was still stuffed, yet we had traditional Bulgogi, or grilled meat. ( Korean bar be que).
Sunday we started rehearsing for the MAC theater production and went to all eat chicken after rehearsals. Korean love to eat and drink. I need to pace myself for the long haul.
