So much delicious, hearty, meaty food in Korea! I felt like I had some kind of pork everyday. I think I actually did LOL. From pork belly, to chicken, to a different kind of bulgogi, to kimchi jjigae, and even natto jjigae, you can travel to Korea just for the food. The best part is, it's inexpensive. You can get a full, big meal for less than $8! And the street food, you can get five different things under $5 and you're already full. 진짜!

Divine Tio Korean Air Bibimbap

Divine Tio Korean Air Seafood Pasta

My Korean Airlines meal. The first meal was bibimbap (mixed rice), and it was surprisingly good LOL. The second meal was shrimp pasta, which was alright. I liked the smoked salmon and cake on the side.

Divine Tio Pork Belly Samgyeopsal Seoul

Right when we arrived in Incheon, we went straight to our hotel near Myeongdong, dropped off our stuff, and ate samgyeopsal (grilled pork belly) kekeke.

This was being sold at a convenience store: chicken thigh.

My first street food: fish cake and fish cake soup. Still not a fan of ddeokbokki (spicy rice cake), even in its motherland.

More samgyeopsal!

Divine Tio Kimbap Seoul

Divine Tio Omurice Seoul

Kimbap (Korean version of a California roll) and omurice (omelette fried rice)

So far, the best soondubu jjigae (soft tofu stew) I've ever had. I usually don't care for soondubu, but this one I loved and came back for twice LOL.

Divine Tio Dakgalbi Seoul

Divine Tio Dakgalbi Seoul

This is the dakgalbi (chicken stir-fry) that's popular in Korea. Chicken with cabbage, onions, potatoes, rice cakes and perilla leaves mixed with the gochujang (chilli pepper paste). It was alright.

Had dinner at a friend's house, and guess what we're cooking? Yup, samgyeopsal! Fried rice came after. Yumm!

I thought I'd steer away from the pork or any meat for at least one meal LOL. This is a mackerel jjigae. It's not as spicy as it looks.

All this for $8! You get your pot of jjigae, a big bowl of japgokbap (multigrain rice), and unlimited banchan (sides). You can also put as much gim (seaweed) on your rice, and eggs in your jjigae. There was a banchan bar where there were all types of banchan (not just the ones in the photo) and rice if you wanted more. Great deal!

Pork lettuce wraps. Eating all this while wearing a Hanbok kekeke.

Divine Tio Kimchi Jjigae Seoul

Divine Tio Kimchi Jjigae Seoul

Kimchi jjigae! One of my favorite jjigaes. They just threw in a huge slab of fatty pork. Yumm!

Divine Tio Kalbi Seoul

Divine Tio Bulgogi Seoul

Kalbi and bulgogi all to myself. Well, it might as well have been since my friend doesn't really eat these types of meat. Yay kekeke. I wasn't familiar with the bulgogi they served here. It was like a soup dish. Nonetheless, still had that sweet, savory taste.

Divine Tio Bibimbap Natto Jjigae Seoul

Bibimbap and natto jjigae. I dislike the Japanese natto dish, and so I was wary about this jjigae. Surprisingly, natto jjigae was delicious. Try it! 

Divine Tio Room Service Grand Hyatt Seoul

Dwaejibulgogi (spicy pork). After a night out of noraebang/karaoke and drinking, I decided to stay in our hotel and have room service keke.

All you can eat pork, banchan, and deonjang jjigae (soybean paste stew) for under $10! And for $5 more, unlimited beer! Wah! 2 hour limit though. But that's more than enough time to indulge.
