    Hello SD, the food in this one looks great. Wonder how far from Seoul if by travel. If there, will try the clear noodles fried pockets (japchae). Elle for onions

    "Namdaemoon" literally means South Gate and there is traditional Korean outdoor market.
    " Dongdaemoon" literally means East Gate and there is traditional Korean outdoor market.
    "Sawdaemoon" literally means West Gate and there is traditional Korean market near by.
    " Bookdaemoon" literally means North Gate and there has NEVER been any North Gate existed not to mention traditional Market.

    I like this guy's video cuz he is not afraid to try what actual Koreans would eat. Like the first fish dish is very very Korean dish that foreigners would be skeptical to try.

    This is making me sick with envy. In my small (but supposedly sophisticated) city in the US, our fake ethnic restaurants are bullied by the Spice Police into serving bland nothing! Thank goodness I know how to cook, but procuring real ingredients is difficult and expensive. Send help!
