Photo of the Day: Pasta in a Waffle Cone

sadly, you have to eat this with a fork and the cone gets all soggy because of the steam. it's an interesting concept, but not one that was totally thought out.

Snapshots from South Korea: Electronic Menu Console Helps Tourists Order Food

Thanks for the post. I think that most restaurants in the future will be using this sort of system. Hey, I think it would be cool if you could just order stuff from an ipod touch instead of the large console.

Snapshots from South Korea: Hotteok, Two Ways

Robyn really does talk that way in real life. She's a cartoon in real life.

Snapshots from South Korea: Kalguksu from Myeongdong Gyoja

I called it the model "T" because the restaurant is the most efficient noodle making/serving machine in Korea. The line moves fast, the food comes about 2 minutes after you sit and if you finish your bowl they'll refill it for free.

Looks great. Roboseyo has pretty good tastes. Too, bad I'm going to have to hurt him later. (sorry inside joke).

Robyn, I haven't actually gone to this place and now that I've seen your post, I will definitely have to go.

@Polecat. I think Robyn is doing a great job showing the gamut of Korean foods. Most people would not understand what Calguksu and patbingsu were and would just find it bizarre. I feel that by writing about fast food, it helps readers identify with the culture by giving them a point of reference.

Heya, It's what Dr. Yoon at the Institute of Traditional Korean Food wanted, so I stuck with it. I like the look of tteok more than ddeok. But hey, check out Robyn's pics! They are awesome.

Korean Corn Ice Cream Novelty Fails

Zen, It tasted pretty awful. In the Philippines, I saw a guy put corn ice cream on a hamburger bun; it does look as cool as the corn cob shell.

Korean Corn Ice Cream Novelty Fails

I don't know why everyone in Korea thinks that corn is some sort of delicacy. I mean it's in the pizza, salad, candy and ice tea. Thanks for the comments.

Gallery of Rice Cakes from Seoul's 7th International Tteok Fair

If you think of rice cakes as only being round or block-shaped, you're...right about most of them. But at the 7th International Tteok Fair in Seoul, South Korea, there were more! So many more! For the rice cake competition, contestants made elaborate dishes that, unfortunately, only the judges could eat, but they provided plenty of eye-candy for the rest of us. Since there were too many for me to include in my overview of the fair, I separated my favorites into this gallery. Many of the tteok dishes were make to look like other things.
