— Summer in Busan


// Arrived at Seoul Station and tried this citron tea (유자차, yujacha)  from the vending machine, unexpectedly nice! 

// Randomly walked around our hotel. Found and had this BBQ pork (삼겹살, samgyeopsal) at ₩24,000 (3 servings). I really like the generosity in Korean restaurants, every meal looked like a feast with all the yummy side dishes. 


// Off to explore Centum City

// Pork cutlet burger? Not really nice though..

// This was the awesome thing! 팔선생 (Palseonsaeng, 八先生) seafood fried noodles at the basement of Shinsegae Department Store. This was so yumz! ₩8,900

// Walking to Haeundae Beach (해운대)

// Macaron ice-cream! ₩5,000

// Passed by a train track while finding a hamburger restaurant. 

// Couldn’t find that hamburger restaurant, so we had this instead. 100% Beef Hamburg Steak! We thought they sell hamburger though.

// Not bad for a random hunt. ₩10,000

// Street chocolate waffle, ₩1,990.


// Finding the way to spicy rice cakes (떡볶이, ddeokbokki)!

// Walked through this colourful market. The spicy rice cake is at the end of this street.

// Here’s the spicy rice cakes! Omnomnomz!

// We’re here for the rice cakes but found this pancake (호떡, heotteok), which is extremely nice! Only ₩500! 

// While heading for main lunch, had this rice drink (식혜, sikhye)

// 몽뜰, mongddeul. 

// Another feast! Awesome bibimbap and crab soup. ₩24,000 


// Heading to Taejongdae, 태종대. 

// Tickets for the cute train up the park.

// Had lunch near by. Seafood noodles (짬뽕, jjampong) and black bean noodles (짜장면, jjajangmyeon). There were many people queuing up for this and totally worth to wait. SO NOMZ!

// BIFF, Busan International Film Festival

// Peanut bingsu? & peanut toast. This is SO NOMZ too!

// Street takoyaki

// Cheese flavour


// Walked around Seomyeon, 서면.

// Hamburger! ₩10,000

// Jambalaya ₩9,800. Unexpectedly nice!

// Nitrogen ice-cream. 


// Train station. Not in use anymore. 

// Foggy morning. Had breakfast at Gwangali Beach, 광안리해수욕장.

// Honey bee ice-cream! 

// Yonggongsa Temple, 용궁사

// Had lunch again at Shinsegae. Beef Stew? Cost ₩40,000 for two! But nomz anyway!

// Cabbed back to hotel and Andy asked the driver to cross the bridge.

End of trip. So much fun it was.
