Last night we celebrated the end of our last full week at school. Our first destination was Dragon Dream Cave, a traditional Korean restaurant and bar housed within a retired bomb shelter. The atmosphere was unique and laid back, while the tofu, kimchi and pajeon were the perfect complement to the sweet homemade dong dong-ju rice wine.
Our next stop was hidden within the maze-like alleys of Seomyeon, Busan’s bustling downtown area. The bright and noisy bar was packed with locals sipping soju and eating fresh seafood specialties. We toasted with fruit soju, a refreshing blend of Korean liquor and pureed fruit. We tried the concoction in both peach and kiwi flavors. Yummmm! Ryan also polished off a platter of spiced pork stir-fried with veggies.
Before we knew it, three am had rolled around and the joint was still hoppin. This morning, our heads were too. Oh, soju.
