The tasty Bento box a.k.a Lunch Box- This contains a fine assortment of fish cakes, filleted Salmon and rice/ noodles to go. Fine dining at Samseong

Mandu - Dumplings with fillings of beef, pork or both, mostly.

A Prawn dish made of batter-fried prawns, topped by a poached egg on a bed of white rice. 

Dakgangjeong - Korean honey fried chicken; less spicy, hint of honey, comes with drinks.

Spicy Seafood noodle soup - clams, mussels, fish cakes and soy noodles in a chilly filled broth

Manjoo. A roadside sweet made of waffle batter and filled with Limecurd/ Beanpaste. I liked the beanpaste flavour better. The Limecurd was more like egg yolk; hardly any lime flavour. Jamsil station UG shopping centre.

Pork belly Lardon strips, batter-fried and served as a starter
