If you don’t already know, you will know soon that I am a major foodie. I love to cook and eat. I have written various entries on my love of eating. And, a while back, you may have noticed that I also posted one of Shay Mitchell’s Shaycation videos where she talks about Greece and Santorini and mentions that her version of Eat, Pray, Love is Eat, Eat, Eat. Well, that is very similar to my version of Eat, Pray, Love, because I love to eat. In fact, when I go to Southeast Asia, I am creating my very own eat-cation. For someone who relishes food, and yes, I actually auditioned for Masterchef. They don’t know real talent because my tape never got past those producers. Anyways, Thailand, Vietnam and South Korea, from what I have heard are known for having excellent food from the restaurants, to the street stalls, to the market place.
And I am known to having an interest in trying new, interesting and exciting foods; and foods that I would not typically find anywhere else. I have already begun doing my research and finding interesting dishes and street foods that I would like to try and looking at local food guides. Below is just a little bit of what I have found so far.
Have you ever heard of the french fry hot dog? A hot dog that is wrapped in french fries? I didn’t think so. It is genius and seriously, like putting the best of both worlds together. This is certainly something that I am looking forward to trying. Dipping in ketchup and mayo. I am so getting hungry just speaking about it. Gets your mouth watering doesn’t it?
….and what about this blood sausage? I had force myself to try blood sausage in the UK…could blood sausage in South Korea be better?
What about these rice cakes? And how colorful the food, no?
So yes, in the same way that I ate my way through Italy a few years ago, I plan to eat my way through Southeast Asia, and I cannot wait to take you on that journey with me.
I found this great street food stall guide on Migrationology.
