Last week, on my parents' first full day in Seoul, a friend of mine took us to a restaurant called Sanch'on, which means Mountain Village. It's owned by a monk, or a former monk, so they don't serve any meat, eggs, onions, etc. This may sound lame, but I assure you, it is not. It was hands-down the best Korean food I have ever eaten. Also nearly the most expensive - 20 bucks per person - though this isn't much considering a) how outstanding it is; b) how healthy it is; and c) how easy it is to spend 30 or 40 or 50 bucks on fruit-flavored soju and crappy bar food.
I beg you to look at a few of the following pictures and follow them to my photo site. It may just change your life.
