Seoul Markets

Seoul Markets

Walking through the streets of Seoul, I got to experience their market culture. The streets are lined with vendors selling spices, fish, fruits, and kitchenware. The amount of octopus in these markets was frightening for me. I am learning to love seafood, but it’s a slow and steady process. Down one street, a man from a bibimbap restaurant snatched an octopus (bare-handed) from the showcase tank for us to view our potential lunch. Down another street, a women offering a bucket of octopus tentacles whipped out scissors to cut us a sample. The tiny piece had the texture of fresh mozzarella, at least that’s what I was telling myself. It wasn’t bad at all!
