Korean Home Delivery is a thing of pure beauty. The food is the same price as it would be in the restaurant, the appetizers come for free, you don’t have to tip the delivery person (or at least that’s what we’re told), and – here’s the clincher – when you’re finished eating you leave your dirty dishes outside your door and the delivery guy will come back to pick them up! We always wanted to try this home delivery service, but were too scared, because our Korean was so shoddy. We finally thought that we had enough Korean on us to try ordering, so two days ago we finally did. We made a video of the whole ordeal and, even though it didn’t work as smoothly as expected, it still worked. You’ll be amazed when you see what it looks like. Altogether, ordering food for the both of us cost only 9000 won altogether, which is roughly NINE BUCKS. There are many reasons to love Korea, and this is definitely one of them.
Oh, and by the way, the place we ordered from wasn’t very good, so if you’re in Bucheon don’t order from “Ee Moo Noy” – or at least that’s how we think it’s pronounced. The food was pretty bland and disappointing, and we wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much if we weren’t as exhilarated from our success.
