I was searching for a unique baked good at the Lotte World food court... ...and found a green-tinged (green tea, perhaps) glutinous rice cake filled with brown sugar syrup. Sandy opted for a chunk of pineapple on a stick at Namdaemun Market.

Why this blog?
The idea to start this blog was not my own. A friend and I spent practically every weekend exploring Seoul this past summer. As registered dietitians, we took a special interest in food. My friend wanted to start a blog, and I 'stole' the idea from her. "Korean Food Blog" was born. Korea is full of spicy, fermented, meaty, unfamiliar foods. And, honestly, I won't try 90% of it. Give me a plate of bland, unseasoned food, and I'll eat it happily! Accordingly, my blog is not about sampling unusual Korean foods. Instead, I'm using Korean foods as a lens for my experiences in Korea. I'm drawing from my dietetics background to discuss the foods I encounter. Hopefully the items pictured on my blog are as interesting to you as they are to me. Enjoy!
