After my historical and political walk through Gwanghwamun Square, it was time for lunch! Yey!
The Korea Ginseng Chicken Soup restaurant opened its doors in 1960 and continues to thrive today as Korea’s first Samgyetang restaurant.
Samgyetang or Ginseng chicken soup is one of Korea’s famous traditional cuisines. It’s made of a whole young chicken stuffed with rice, ginseng, and other ingredients, all together served in an iron pot while boiling hot.
What a treat after freezing outside!
While waiting for our meal to simmer down, Mr. Daniel and I shared about his years working in the Philippines and I in the UAE. We talked about the Asian culture and the growing tourism industry in Korea.
This is the nice thing about having a personalized tour, there’s no rush and you get to learn from others and know them in a deeper way.
After lunch we stopped by Starbucks for coffee. If someone offers to buy or make me coffee, that person automatically moves up my friend list. Haha.
If there was a 6th love language in Gary Chapman’s 5 love languages, I propose it to be coffee sharing/drinking. 🙂
The starbucks wall was #wallgoals.
It’s been over a week and I’m still not used to the cold. A hot lunch and warm coffee was just what I needed!
Half a day is gone, now off to our next stop!
