Sorae Pogu Fish Market in Incheon Korea! – Part 5

(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. This ain’t the most comfortable setting but at least you’ve got some fresh fish and view of the ocean. First, we ordered some live octopus, my favorite food of all time. Then we ordered oysters, these are the ones we saw earlier and they just melt in your mouth. My aunt ordered us a bunch of different types of Korean sashimi.  I am not even sure what each of these are but they … Continue reading

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!
