SEE SEA FOOD
Spicy Crab Stew (꽃게탕)
Hyolyn enjoys a hearty pot of spicy crab stew. This dish contains soft shell flower crabs, anchovies, Korean radish, zucchini, green onions, green and red chili pepper, hot pepper paste, soybean paste, garlic, and chrysanthemum greens. What mouthful! A wonderfully spicy and delicious, traditional Korean stew to warm you up.
Crab Snack (꽃게랑)
Hyolyn is a being a little “shellfish” with the snacks! One of the many puffed rice snacks that you can get is called kkotgerang (꽃게랑) or crab flower snack. It is similar to the spicy crab stew, kkotgetang, but it is less spicy and more peppery flavored.
LUNCHTIME: GIVE IT TO ME!
Danish and Coffee
When you’re in the mood for a light lunch, it’s always great to stop at a cafe and grab a coffee and danish. Hyolyn would agree that a cup of coffee on a cold winter day can warm you up. Cafes are the perfect places to relax, study, and most importantly, eat!
In the mood for a delicious sandwich? A fresh sandwich is a great pick-me-up to get you through any day, especially the upgrade of a baguette as the bread just like Hyolyn. With meat, cheeses or just a basic BLT, you really can’t go wrong when ordering one.
SO COOL WITH ICE CREAM
Let’s be honest, ice cream is good any time of the year and Hyolyn is here to show her love for the icy treat. Whether it is in a cone or on a stick, ice cream is always yummy!
For now, let’s enjoy these aesthetic food photos and look forward to more being posted during her tours!
