I love 삼 겹 살!!!

Korea is famous for barbeque restaurants where patrons cook their own meals atop grills built into each table. Nearly any meat can be grilled, but a very popular variet is samgyeobsal, or slices of pork. It's not the healtiest choice, as each slice contains three layers of fat (hence the "sam" in the name), but it's absolutely delicious! Coupled with a big pile of 김 치 (kimchi), grilled veggies, and an assortment of sauces, it's my favorite Korean meal. Here's a picture of my friend Jessica and me celebrating her birthday at a samgyeobsal restaurant in Jong-no.

Hi Abby,

Was just browsing around and read your blogs from Korea! My wife and I have never been to that part of the world and it is one place we would like to visit some day,

Like you, we have lived and worked abroad. We were in Vietnam for nearly 5 years and it was very good experience!

Cheers from Manila,
