Just like the entire continent of Asia, street food is hugely popular in Korea and many of the most beloved dishes in the country come from street carts and stands.
The episode begins in the ethereal countryside where Marja spends a day with the Alice Waters of Korea and learns the authentic way to make kimchi as well as holiday dishes to celebrate the new year.
On this episode, Marja, her dear friend, the actress Heather Graham, and an expert food blogger named Daniel eat classic pork barbeque at Heukdonga restaurant in Seoul made with Jeju’s famous black pigs.
Like an Italian with a bowl of spaghetti or tortellini, a Korean eating a heap of noodles or dumplings is a satisfied customer. In Korea, slurping is not only permitted, it’s considered a compliment to the cook.
