Sorae Pogu Fish Market in Incheon Korea! – Part 4

Near the docks where the fishing boats are coming in, there’s even more stores that sell literally fresh shrimps just off the boat. These shrimps are actually live still, moving around. Check out these fish just fresh off the boat, can you spot the shark here?  Since these fish are more fresh than inside the fish market, you will have to pay a bit more. (and haggle of course) It’s only 11:45AM now, there’s still a lot of people at this market, that tells you how crazy Koreans are about fresh fish. Check out soy-marinated raw crabs, these are my favorite, called Gae-jang in Korean. These Korean blue crabs are literally everywhere! Click Here to Read Part 5! Go back to Part 3

Sorae Pogu Fish Market in Incheon Korea! – Part 3

Once we reached the end of Sorae Pogu fish market, we came to the dock where the actual fishing boats were coming back with fresh fish. I decided to take a closer look at these Korean fishing boats. By seeing the nets and some shrimps, I think this boat was a shrimp boat. As you can tell, they kinda rigged up everything here but I guess it works well by judging how much fish is at the market. We also ran into this store that had like 50 different types of Korean shells.  That’s a lot of shells if you ask me, maybe at least 2 weeks to try them all! The store name is “Shell Heaven”, I can’t really disagree with that I guess. These Korean blue crabs are wildy popular among Korean people, it’s a traditional icon almost.  If you’ve watched Forest Gump you will know what I mean, Koreans make Crab Spicy sashimi, Crab soup, Crab salad, etc…etc… Click Here to Read Part 4!
