Food in South Korea {Wanderlust Wednesday}

I will admit that when we plan a trip somewhere, the number one thing I look forward to is the food. Going to South Korea was no exception.

Before we left for South Korea, I was already in love with Korean BBQ (luckily Los Angeles has plenty of KBBQ places to choose from!). So I was looking forward to having it in actual Korea-- all legit. I was also looking forward to trying other foods. I had no expectations. But one thing is for sure-- I was not expecting Korean food to become one of my favorites!

Yes, the KBBQ was indeed amazing. But so were all these other dishes I couldn't even pronounce or read. We would just point at pictures when we would walk into a restaurant and would always leave happy.

This post is an ode of sorts to Korean food.

More recently we were able to grub on a massive amount of Korean food here in Nashville for J's birthday. We were missing the food in Korea like crazy and luckily we found a great spot- Korea House. We left there happy & will definitely be returning.

J and I did an episode of our Hungry Backpacker series in South Korea (if you want to get a better picture of Korean food):
