I ate a whole chicken for dinner tonight.
Think I’m kidding?
I’ve come to learn that Koreans do not kid around with portion size. Sam Gye Tang is a kind of chicken soup, where an entire chicken (minus the head and the feet) is filled with sticky rice, put in a clay pot and served. It was delicious! And that’s how I ate the chicken. In a clay pot, with the traditional Korean utensils- a spoon and chopsticks.
I was also served Insamju, which is a ginseng based liquor. It tastes a bit like a sweeter version of sake and it’s considered to medicinal. Booze that makes me healthier? Ya I can get behind that.
