Yummy in my tummy tummy tummy and it feels so good.

You won't believe the price. 2.60$ USD for all of this...
As I waited for my lunch: Kongnamul-guk (bean sprout soup), at a soup restaurant near Ajou University, the waitress brought out side dishes:

Hot peppers. Dip them in the flavorful red sauce:

Radish kimchi (upper right), standard homemade kimchi (bottom right)

A touch of seafood: the pink. It isn't really kosher to nosh on the side dishes before the main dish arrives, but Koreans do it. I ate a pepper and some kimchi before the soup made an appearance:

It was quite good- a light peppery broth with bean sprouts, green onions and a poached egg. It wasn't spicy so I think a lot of foreigners would enjoy it.

You 새우젓 for your side dish. I love that but it's way too salty to eat that much in one go...

Yum!!!

I think I'll rent a small aptment (ap-pa-tu) and retire in Suwon. Seems the cost of living is low with good food at local restaurants. What more can a person ask for!!

I'm drooling stringy drool like a bull dog eyeing a medium rare steak.

slurp!

I still can't get over how cheap the food here is, how delicious, and NO TIPPING! Oh, another thing- almost no one orders a drink like juice or pop at Korean restaurants, which cuts down the price. the waitor just brings out a pitcher of water. it's wonderful
