Food & Drink from Korea

Street snack at Insadong, singing a song about Kkul Tarae (or κΏ€νƒ€λž˜), a traditional Korean snack made from ripened honey and malt, stretched into 16,000 strands and wrapped up around a small filling (chocolate, peanut butter, etc). The 16,000 strands suggest the prayer for longevity, health, good fortune and wish-fulfilment.

Afternoon snack with ginger tea... good for your health

 Makgeolli, also known as Makkoli or Makuly(takju) (and referred to in English as "Korean rice wine"), is an alcoholic beverage native to Korea.
