Hello Bizarre Foods ReadersWednesday, April 22, 2009
To be honest with you, I haven't seen the episode yet. They haven't aired it in Korea yet. I just wanted to welcome you to my site and introduce you to some of the bizarre things I've eaten (or been eaten by) lately.
The first picture is of my hand and feet in a pool of water as little fish eat the dead skin off the bottom of my feet. It's a pretty popular thing in Korea and it does wonders for exfoliation.
Then there is kamja tang. It's a potato soup with slowly roasted pig back. The potatoes here are fluffy when cooked and they have an elusive sweetness.
Next is Jokbal. Jokbal is slowly braised pig trotters that melt like butter in your mouth.
Then there is a fish with a cataract kissing a Korean upside down fish. The cataract is believed to improve stamina in men.
It was a fish that I saw at Noryrangjin: the largest commercial market in Seoul.
Then we have freshly sliced Korean sushi and giant shrimp.
Korea is full of amazing dishes and it's my goal to eat as many of them as I can.
Thanks for reading and I hope you will revisit my site. Also, if you are ever in Seoul, let me know and I'll be happy to show you around.
