Jeonju has probably been one of the most hyped up places in Korea and because of the over advertising, it is now in danger of getting eye rolls every time we see a commercial on the bus, subway, train…like, seriously Korea…stop it. We now have something called the internet?
Anyways I was lucky to go on behalf of the Korean Tourism Board and there was one thing I needed to find out for myself; is the Jeonju Bibimbap really that amazing in their city of origin, or if it’s all just a stereotypical fad? Well, I tried it and I guess it really did live up to its fame. The ingredients and the taste were much fresher and smoother than any other Bibimbap I had in the country. Definitely worth a try there! Also make sure to pop by the PNB bakery for their famous choco-pies. Totally delicious!
Despite all the food, the highlight for me was being able to capture the whole of the village from a nearby hill. That haze made the moment extra special. I really cannot wait to come back again when those roofs are filled with snow.
Thanks again to the Tourism Board for making this trip happen. Also I just managed to hit over 100,000 followers on instagram. Thank you so much again for the endless support!!!
P.S Apparently if you call someone who is from Jeonju a ‘bibimbap’ it is considered racist. True? I’m terribly sorry but when I heard this fact I couldn’t stop chuckling.
