When we go to Gyeongju Bulguksa Temple, there’s so many local restaurant nearby, and some of ahjumma give you a pamphlet with their restaurant menu. So be careful, once you take the pamphlet, ahjumma will calling you times to times as long as you are still in there. But for polite, just take the pamphlet and smile. Just pretend that you don’t know what they talking about if you didn’t want to eat in their restaurant.
We found Bulgogi restaurant and decided to eat Bulgogi. We have to order 2 portion minimum for 1 menu. I’m not understand why maybe because 1 portion of food is very little and the bowl or plate is designed for 2 portion. So they will serve the 2 portion become one bowl/plate. There’s also the side dish.
It’s yummy. It’s really different from what I ate outside Korea. And I really love the soup. It’s refreshing. Especially in cold autumn or winter.
Actually, eating in South Korea is quiet expensive (for me).
One portion of bulgogi Jungol cost 15.000 won (1 portion of bulgogi, 1 rice and 1 set of side dish). And we have to buy minimum 2 portion, so it cost 30.000 won (2 portion bulgogi, 2 rice, and set of side dish). Then we add another bowl of rice for 1.000 won, so for this lunch, we spent 31.000 won.
The exchange rate in Indonesia, approximately 12,3 won at that time. So we spent IDR 381.300 for 3 people.
Wow… That’s why I spent more money in eating. And 2 portion, is really much.
