Day 2: Gwangjang Market - Seoul, South Korea

It has been a long day for us.  After we left Nami Island, took a taxi back to Gapyeong Station.  We were getting hungry and decided that we would go to Gwangjang Market for some food.  It was a pretty long train ride from Gapyeong Station to Jongno 5-ga Station.  It took us about 1 hour 20 minutes just for the train ride.  So, it was pretty late in the afternoon when we go here.  I think it was around 5pm?

The place was super crowded!

The place was super crowded!  Lots of tourists.  We randomly picked out some food to try.

I have seen these pig feet many times before when I came to Korea, but never tried.  So, we decided to get some.

I really wanted to try this sundae.  I think it's pork intestine stuffed with ....stuff.  I don't know what's inside.  I imaged the taste to be quite horrible, so we gave up. 

At the end, we chickened out and just ate some normal looking food.  Gimbap!  I love these gimbap.

And the pig feet we picked.  We should have chosen a leaner one....I didn't know we get to pick.  We randomly pointed to the plate and she just took a feet out of the pile.  However, I saw other people choosing the specific foot they wanted.

We then went over to the next stall for some fried pancake.  Didn't take pics though.  We ate quickly and forgot about letting our cameras eat first.

I find that the food wasn't as good as I remembered.  Or maybe I wasn't lucky enough to pick out the tasty shop?

We were really thirsty and saw people selling this drink that looks like mud,chalk, and little pebbles mixed with lots of water.  We decided to give it a try.  To our surprise, it's really good and sweet!  Need to find this recipe and make tons of it at home.
