South Korea (Culinary) Trip in November 2012: Grilled Fish for Dinner in Sokcho

From Nami Island, we were heading to Sokcho.  It is a city located in the far northeast of Gangwon-do province, South Korea. According to Wikipedia, the city belonged to North Korea from 1945 until the end of the Korean War. Sokcho receives a number of tourists attracted by the closeness to the DMZ. The city is also a well-known gateway to nearbySeoraksan national park.

We arrived at 8 pm, and before we went to our hotel, we had our dinner. This city is famous for their fish product, that's why for dinner we were served grilled fish with tofu soup and just like usual, there also various of side dish. The fish surprisingly good. The taste actually like tuna but not too salty. According to our tour leader, Jenny, this type of fish only live in the sea of subtropics region. She mentioned the name, but I couldn't remember. The restaurant actually very modest. It remind me ordinary rumah makan in Indonesia. The place itself not too big, even when we came, it quite hectic inside. We had to sit on the floor, and it was interesting. I think the restaurant usually had foreign visitor because they displayed collection of many from various countries on the wall.
