Korea Seoul Myeongdong Curry

24 November 2022

Threepeat

A short walk to a familiar meal

Short update will be short.
I have now had Abiko curry 3 times on this trip.
1st time at the Lotte young store, vegetarian, super spicy, and it was pretty spicy.
2nd time, in Gwangju, and I got the super spicy with pork and vegetarian blend and it was not spicy at all.
3rd time, back to the Lotte young, vegetarian super spicy, and it was quite spicy again.
Adding pork to it in Gwangju did not really add much, so vegetarian is superior. And my official verdict, the outlet on level 7 of a Seoul department store annex building is superior to a street level outlet in the suburb of Sangmu in Gwangju.
My research has been exhaustive.

Tomorrow is not a hiking day... I have no plan.

As often happens after a hiking day, I was feeling a bit shaky, so time for some proper food, curry it was, if you read the above nonsense you already knew that was coming. The things on the right are garlic flakes.

Last pic, the Shinsagae has taken xmas lights to the next level with a full wrap around video screen coordinated with all the lights in trees and on the road and in the sky nearby. Sadly, the store location is not particularly conducive to people being able to see it. Either side of here there are police buses parked on the road, which leaves just this little window between subway entrance for people to cram against the rail and give each other covid.
