Ohhh yesss! We’ve been sitting on this video for a while now. Guise, this bibimbap was awesome!
You know, you sometimes see those Korea Tourism ads for bibimbap, and they’re ultra corny, and they sound something like “Come to Korea! Eat the Bee Beem Bob! It has many colors, like our country! Korea’s national dish. Eat the Bee Beem Bob!” Oh. They make me burn. Bibimbap doesn’t look like that! It’s usually really sloppy looking, and nowhere near as pretty as it is in those ads. Kind of like when you order a Big Mac: the Big Mac looks great in pictures, but then when you open up your box you see the sadness that went into making it. It’s the same for Bibimbap…EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE! The Bibimbap here was very photogenic, and had many more ingredients in it than most bibimbaps you can get in Korea. Here: check out our pictures from the day:
You know, now that I look at those pictures, it still doesn’t look like what you see in the Korea Tourism ads, but it still looks a lot better than most of the Bibimbap we get in Seoul.
Also, one thing we didn’t include in our main video but we included in the bloopers was how nice the lady was to us. She said we had good Korean. TAKE THAT, TUMBLR! WHUTCHU GOT NOW?!?! No, but really, did you see how she liked Martina’s hair? Martina gets that a lot. Restaurants run by ajummas usually have them touching Martina’s hair. Not a lot of coloured hair in this part of the world. Check it out in the bloopers:
So, yeah! That’s it for this week’s FAPFAP. We’ve got more adventure footage from our Road Trip (seriously, we filmed a lot when we were gone) for next week and the week after, so stay tuned for those. Sorry if this blog post is a bit lacking. We’ve got friends visiting us from out of the country. They’re from Japan! They’re telling us all about Japan and what it would be like if we lived there because, you know, we might live there one day. ONE DAY! Eatyoursushi.com will happen sooner or later :D
