Jen and I will also be partaking in a fine feast of buade jigae (부대찌개), which is basically a big stew of hot pepper, leeks, onions, tofu, ramyeon, dukk (떡 or rice cake) and hot dogs. Yes, hot dogs. It might sound commonplace, ordinary or entirely derivative, but it is extraordinary if done right. We are greatly looking forward to it.

You can read more about it here. Also, I have mapped an approximation of where my favorite budae jigae restaurants are located. Please feel free to click into the map if you would like. Unfortunately, I can’t remember their names, but there are several outside the front gate of Yonsei University and my personal favorite is on the street behind the main drag in Gangnam.
