"A Traveler's Want-to-Eat-List" in Korea Part 1: Soy Crabs and Samgyetang by Pakinam Magdy PSunday, June 07, 2015
Dear Seoul Eats Readers,
A member of our Seoul Eats Facebook Page (currently nearly 10,000 members) Pakinam Magdy sent me a list of all the foods that she wants to eat while in Korea by grazing through the facebook group. As you know the Facebook group is tough to find stuff after it has left the main page. She has gone through and listed the foods she would like to eat in Korea. We have credited the authors and credited the blogs the content has come from. Mind you, another blogger, Zenkimchi has done a much more comprehensive job in his book that you can can buy via Amazon here.
I would like to Thank Pakinam for her diligent work. And if you would like to help feed Seoul by contributing, feel free to contact me at seouleats at gmail dot com.
Bio: Pakinam Magdy A Architect who gets really pissed if you take away her sweets. I am very passionate about trying out and discovering new yummy for the tummy eats and places. Have travelled to exotic locations before and lately Korean culture/food has sparked an immense curiosity in me which got me researching loads of Korean related matters. I am not in Korea yet but I have compiled a list of amazing restaurants accumulated from Seoul eats group and Korean food blogs for when I get the chance to visit.

2- Il Pum - James Yu
Soy marinated crab…probably one of my favorite things to eat. Brings back memories of fighting with my little sister over who gets the main shell to mix rice into (I always lost - hard to fight or even reason with a sibling six years younger).It’s good to know that Il Pum (일품) in Gangnam gets it right. I’ve been here a few times now and have enjoyed their crab every time. First, they’re quite large.
