After eating some live baby octopus, we contemplated heading out to eat our "real" dinner. But, we ended up eating king crab instead, thanks to HC (I helped her out a few weeks back on where to buy a digital camera and getting the best deal in Seoul!). Anyways, she came back with a king crab that cost 40,000w--except it only had 7 legs! Hey, I'm not one to complain when I'm eating free crab, baby!
Here's HC (it stands for hardcore if you're wondering) posing for a picture with the crab. What's up with her and always kissing things (think of five time bodybuilding champion, Mr. Seoul)? ;)
Once the entire crab comes out steaming hot, the ajuma takes over and starts cutting up the crab with scissors. This is a skill that takes years of experience and has been passed down from tens and tens of generations ago. Watch and learn:
Here's a picture of our king crab. It was pretty darn good, but that missing leg would've helped because I was still hungry afterwards! You guys should know that I love to eat myself silly:
Nothing beats eating crab and drinking "Co-Cah, Cohrl-Rah" in a bottle!
When you ride with Gdog & Co., you always get some sort of "service" (or ser-bees in Konglish). We got a plate of watermelon, which was warm (it was probably kept outside in this hot weather). HC got an extra piece from the ajuma, so of course I had to get in on that too! Flash a quick smile and beg like crazy...that's how you get things for free in Korea!
So that pretty much wraps up our trip to the Noryangjin Fish Market. I have lots of things to post about soon, once I get back up and running. I won't have internet since we will be moving into another hotel on Friday night. I have some cool videos coming your way of people watching in Gangnam (all dressed to the nines), and ordering Red Mango at the busy Gangnam location.
