Untraditional Korean lunch spots

Korean people never seize to amaze me when it comes to lunch locations. Who wants to sit around the same old living room/kitchen, when beautiful scenery of the outdoors is calling. What is a typical lunch before/after a hike? Rice wrapped in seaweed with various vegetables or meats, called Kimbop. My personal favorite is Tuna Kimbop with a healthy serving of mayonaise as lubricant. Kimchi, Korean fermented cabbage may also make it on the lunch menu, but no hike is ever complete without some rice alcohol – Soju or Makkoli (the latter, tasting like milky beer, on occasion it is tasty!)

Above photographs were taken at Seoraksan National Park and Jangtaesan Recreational Forrest.
