(Fresh Oysters!) After walking around the Sorae Pogu market for about an hour, we decided to eat some Korean sashimi.  They looked so yummy, my aunt and I decided to eat some. At the market, there are some fish stores that have a place inside for you to eat the fish.  You can also buy different types of fish then go to a place that will filet the fish and make it edible. These are the stores that have place to sit inside.  But if you prefer, they will sit you on the street with the view of the boats coming into the docks.  Since I like the view, we decided to sit down on the streets like some other old men were doing and getting drunk.

What I was about to see (the fish market) was going to be very exciting. (if you are into fish and seafood that is) While walking to the Sorae Pogu fish market, we saw a bunch of offers for some seafood snacks and some fresh, local Makkuli (Korean rice wine).  I should have sat down for some, now I regret it everyday for not day-time drinking. Upon walking further towards the center of the fish market, we noticed more and more fish shops like shown above.  When … Continue reading
