Trip to Seoul (Spring 2012 - Day 4)...Last porridge brunch
We both gained so much weight in the past few days with all the delicious food in Seoul, so we decided to eat something light as our final meal. We walked to a local porridge restaurant for a quick brunch.
This place has been run by husband and wife owners for over 20 years. They make traditional Korean porridge dishes.
I ordered their signature abalone porridge. Very nice flavor, and it was almost healing. I enjoyed it very much.
In the final hour, we did a last-minute final shopping at the gourmet floor of Lotte Department Store. So much fun.
In this trip, I had a new discovery and I drank it every day during my stay in Seoul…it’s Oksusu Suyeomcha. Oksusu (corn) tea is common is Korea, but instead of corn kernels, corn silk (hair) is infused in this tea. It’s supposed to have even better health benefits than regular corn tea, and you can find it in plastic bottle at any convenient stores. The flavor has real deep corn flavor, and I got totally hooked by it! During this trip, I bought Oksusu Suyeomcha every day. I wish I could buy it in Tokyo or LA, too.
