Living in Korea is pretty amazing for a variety of reasons. Many of the reasons include ways to make life easier and convenient. One of the things I love about Korea is of course, the food. It's a little crazy how the same chains that we have back in America are here, but they're even better. I probably eat out here more than back in the states.
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
One of the most popular foods ordered by ChungDahm instructors at my branch is pizza! It’s extremely convenient because it’s close by, cheap, and quick to pick up. Now, you may be wondering why I’m blogging about pizza. Well, the pizza in Korea is very different from what we are accustomed to in the U.S., and I had the most delicious pizza experience that I just had to share it with you. The typical pizzas from a delivery place in the U.S. are cheese, pepperoni, sausage, supreme, veggie, hawaiian, and chicken. However, in Korea they really get creative with their pizzas! You’ll find ingredients such as baked potatoes, corn, sweet potatoes, sweet and sour sauce, and fried chicken strips! Recently however, it was on the news that the Korea Food and Drug Administration found a number of pizza franchises to be using imitation cheeses produced from cooking oils, while claiming that their stores used natural cheeses. Pizza School, the place we always pick up pizza from was among those franchises! My coworkers and I haven’t ordered pizza from there since!
