Hangug-eo sigsa – ‘Chicaco Pizza’

This is the first post in a series of foodie-type posts I’ll be sharing with you all during my semester here in Busan. This is a vibrant and active community, especially at night, with restaurants and roadside traders selling things from fish sticks to waffles and ice cream. I’ve called these posts Hangug-eo sigsa, which in Korean means Korean meal (according to Google translate). So follow this ‘tag’ to keep up to date with the many flavours around the PKNU campus in Busan.

In our first week we have been eating out a fair bit as the dorm cafeteria didn’t open until Wednesday and some of us arrived quite early to PKNU.

There are so many different restaurants to chose from and we’ve tried Chimak, Somak, Bibimbap, Bokeumbap, Japanese Curry, Gyoza & Ramen, Tofu soup and so many other dishes. They are all tasty and nearly all of them come with Kimchi.

One of our more western dishes though was at a place just outside the side gate (I’ll have to get the name for you the next time I am out). It serves Pizza, Burgers and Beer and is a great little place to go and chat and hang out and eat some really delicious food.

We had what Australians call ‘potato gems’ and I believe they are called ‘tater tots’ in the US. These were covered in a slightly spicy almost honey glaze but were super tasty and came with mustard and ketchup.

Then in an #OhKorea moment we ordered a ‘Chicaco Deep Dish’ pizza which was vegetarian with so much delicious cheese. This meal only set us back about ₩4000 each not including drinks and was a really fun night out.

Our small group has now happily grown to include so many different people and nationalities but the friendship of the first few days here will always remain something I look back on with fondness.
