Foodies find Korean tour to be a tasty diversion


The first Foodie Tour group of 22 just returned after traveling throughout the Korean peninsula, visiting the cities of Jeonju, Mokpo, Sun Chun, Namhae, Pusan, Gyeongju, Pohang and Seoul, with a few smaller towns in between.

Our meals were quite eclectic, from live octopus, a palace meal for a king and regional kim chee, to simple cold noodles. The group was especially fond of the bulgogi we had at the home of this special dish, Ki Hwa Jip in the city of Eonyang.

We also enjoyed a food festival in the southwestern province of Cheolla Namdo and took many photos at the Shilla Millennium Park, where "Queen Seondok" was filmed. The tour ended with Korean surf and turf: king crab and Wang kalbi in the city of Suwon, home of kalbi.
