Here's some of the culinary concoctions I can't eat...
|An array of spicy seafood, beef, and chicken stirfries. All of the dishes are orange-red because they are slathered in Korean spicy red paste.|
|Food is displayed on tables lining the walkway. Seating is behind these tables and ordering is done restaurant-style.|
|Stacks of yummy-looking crabs of questionable freshness.|
|Candies and cookies sold by the gram.|
|Caffeine-crazed Americans know to bring coffee with them to Korean festivals.|
|It's easy to get drunk while hanging out with Russians.|
|Drink of choice: Soju (the Vodka of Korea) served in paper shot glasses.|
|When you've finished, wipe your mouth with a Korean napkin--a roll of toilet paper hanging from the ceiling.|
Even though I have difficulties with some Korean food, I certainly encourage everyone (armed with plenty of antacid and an adventurous palate) to try it. It's dangerous but delicious!
