In an effort to become a less picky eater & hopefully save some money as well, I’ve decided to eat only Korean food for the next 7 days. For the main meals (breakfast, lunch dinner), I will only eat Korean food. Snacks in between teaching will still be whatever I can get my hands on (most likely free cheese balls from the office or jellies from my in-class snack bar). I figure starting right on Monday will make it easier since I will be forced to eat regular meals for at least the weekdays. Here goes Day 1:
Yayyyyyy KIMBAP! =/ If you know me personally, then you will know that the last time I got excited about eating kimbap was Summer 2009. Shout-out to the 1,500원 kimbaps at the Yonsei KLI building! I opted for the most simple kimbap – ground beef. I got 2 rolls since I knew that I’d munch on a few pieces between classes as well. At 3,500원 per roll, my total was 7,000원.
I had this lying in my classroom (I always have food lying around in my classroom) so I took it home to eat for dinner. It’s just kimchi-flavored ramyun noodles. From what I remember, it was 1,000원 at GS25. I stopped by the convenience store to pick up a single-serving packet of kimchi for 1,100원 before heading home. Ramyun is ramyun. There was nothing special about it. It wasn’t spicy like Shin Ramyun but it wasn’t bland either. The kimchi helped it tremendously. This is my go-to ramyun noodle when I need to stuff myself while at work.
Total Spent: 8,100원
