Korea Day 4 (Noryangjin Fish Market)

Banana arrived late the previous night and I was so exhausted I fell asleep in the guesthouse before I even knew it lol. I briefly remembered opening the door for her in my dream like state and replying her while she was excitedly telling me some stories. I don't think I even knew what she really was talking about since I was half asleep lol. After a few hours when I woke up she told me she had already done many things, like going to the convenience store to buy cup noodles. Then I fell back to sleep.

The next morning we decided to have our breakfast at a café just opposite our guesthouse.

They had books on the shelves. Not sure if they were meant for reading or display though!

They sell homemade bread as well. I think the café focuses on healthy eating and most of their food are organic.

Noryangjin Fish Market from the top.
After brunch we were still starving so we decided to visit Noryangjin Fish Market for seafood heehee!
There were like endless stores over there! You choose your seafood(fresh and still alive), bring it to any restaurants over there and they help to cook for you at a certain price! Fret not if you cannot speak Korean, there are Chinese people stationed there to help you communicate and they even brought us to the restaurant.

Baby octopuses.
This was the highlight! The baby octopuses were still squirming and moving around when they were brought to our table. They were dead though, it was just due to their nervous systems so this is not at all cruel thankfully. You can feel the impact of the tentacles' suctions in your mouth and I was quite nervous when I was eating this because I had read articles on how people were choked to death by this particular dish lolol. The octopuses are tasteless by itself, but taste pretty good with the sesame sauce that comes with it.

korea where to eat seafood prawns
This was my favourite dish out of all. The prawns were plump and juicy and taste super sweet even though they were just grilled with no other sauces or ingredients added.

Salmon sashimi.
This was bought last minute because we felt that we could still stomach more food haha! We couldn't finish them thought. And the salmon wasn't very fresh there was a rancid after taste to it.
After this we went for shopping at Express Bus Terminal's underground shopping mall! Clothes and accessories there were cheap and most were 10,000Won, of decent quality and very pretty!! We spent a huge portion of our money there and were squealing like crazy all the while. And that's why there isn't any photo. :x

After we went back to our guesthouse to deposit our shopping loots, we strolled along the vicinity to find some dinner. In the end we settled for this as it was near midnight and no other eateries were opened.

Yes, we did it the Korean way!! Fried chicken and soju!! <3

Very very awesome fried chicken it beats KFC anytime. And the portion was big enough to fill two!
We walked back to the guesthouse about 3am and then ran to the convenience stall to get delicious fish shaped ice cream. Now it dawns on me why my weight rocketed after I came back lolol.
