What are some local dishes where you are? What would you recommend to someone passing through? Around here there are lots of delicious and distinctively Korean foods. Kimchi (spicy pickled cabbage) is essential, but I have a few other favourites. The raw fish is probably not for everyone. You can choose the fish while it's still swimming, and then, a few minutes later, it's on your plate. You can get octopus so fresh the pieces are still moving. Soondae (sausages stuffed with sweet potato noodles) is another one I always enjoy. It's usually served with pork liver, and sometimes bits of pork lung if you ask for it. Bibimbap, rice mixed with vegetables, served in a hot clay bowl if it's cold weather, and always with a fried egg on top, is a classic Korean dish. Each city or region has a specialty. It's fun to travel and try new foods, or better versions of familiar foods.
