You can eat them raw if you like, or you can ask them to cook “the chosen one” for you.

Of course, you won’t eat them there in the wet market. Go to second floor and enjoy your meal there…

My wife was fallen in love with a crab.

An image of sauced crab makes her drool.

Actually, “us” drooling would makes better sense :D.

In the end, we didn’t buy it.

It’s cheaper than in Japan, but still too bloody expensive for just one meal… *Yes, I’m stingy :D.

We’ll just wait until we go back to Indonesia.

*Busan, South Korea

  3. is sitting on cushions on the floor custom in Korea?
    BTW, when I’m home, we (family) eat sitting on the floor too!

    • I think so, yes… because in some other places that we went to, we eat on cushion on the floor too.
      It is called tatami in Japan, not sure what it is called in South Korea.
      In some parts of Indonesia, people also eat on the floor — using hands … just like India, no?

    • They say it’s the largest in South Korea :D… I only took picture of one building. I think there are another area (in open), but it was raining so I didn’t go there.

      Thanks, Helder :-)
