Friday Fiesta

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.
