Kyongju Things to Do: 109 reviews and 222 photos
For a hedonistic person like me, no trip is ever complete without a good meal. Particularly if the meal is part of the area's specialty! The ssam-bap at Gyeongju is no exception. So what the hell is it? Well, it's an instant buffet with more than 30 dishes in one sitting! Pity each little plate is so small but they contain delightful things like grilled fish, sweet brown rice gruel, omelette with cruchy little things, fried beancurd, you get the idea...
All of these are actually condiments for sheaves of salad leaves that is presented by the basketful. All you need to do, is to grab a little bit of this and a little bit of that and roll it up in a salad leaf like a cigarette. The only difference is that this will go down a lot better in your gullet than a stink butt! There's an excellent row of ssambap restaurants located in the Daereungwon Royal Burial Grounds region. Go for the restaurant that is crammed with locals. Cost per person should be about 13,000 won.
