I've been waiting all week to say this: I'm going to South Korea next week! Seoul to be specific. The 7th Annual Tteok Fair, to be specific-er. Byyyeeee!
...Okay, not yet. Monday = Me + Korean Air = 14 hours of non stop flight goodness! (I've been on longer flights before, but not non-stop.) Dan of Seoul Eats and a map will be my guide for a week as he shows me tasty things and I stuff them into my mouth and keel over from gluttony. What's on the agenda? Um...I haven't had any time to plan things, but right now I'm going with RICE CAKES, weird pizza, fun street food, dumplings, tofu stew, socks (a friend told me to get socks, I'm just doing what she says!), everything from Millimeter/Milligram (or maybe half of everything), and lots of pastries?
Many thanks to Dan and the Institute of Traditional Korean Food for inviting me on this trip. (This is a Serious Eats-related trip, so I'll be blogging about it there.) I've never been to Seoul before and I don't know any Korean! LOOK AT HOW not PREPARED I AM! I'm hoping that everyone will be able to tell that I'm Chinese or American so I don't embarrass myself too much with rudimentary Korean that I will have to teach myself on the plane. Um.
In conclusion...do I have any readers in Seoul? I assumed not really, aside from Dan. If so, please speak up!
