Then in the night we ate Samgeyeobsal (BBQ Pork)
The place are near my college,and the price also not really expensive. Around 8000Won (1000 won = IDR12000)

and then the next day, because of having long trip (6/7 hours) so me and all of my friends are tired and awake in the afternoon. And we walking around the main street while purchase some snack " Soseji" it's Sausage but they have many kind of it. Picture below :

Then we ate this for lunch (I don't know the name of it), It's like Chicken Katsu but in the middle of it there are some mozzarella, the taste of the sauce  it's like takoyaki sauce. It's really delicious. ^ ^ The price of it is 5000won.

Our food for morning and evening are by the college so we not eat outside, but in the night after orientation we ate outside.
In the night we tried to ate this "Chicken and Beer"
This place are quite famous guys, the location is in the emart in front of daejeon bus station.
Well, coz it's famous the price of it also expensive 8000won for one people. (its ok if you didn't order beer, coz they have water and soda) This fried chicken is mix and i ate this with 4 of my friends, and they doesn't have rice. so you just ate this.

Then next day , because of we're going to the down town for trip. We ate this famous dessert "Sulbing" it's like fruit ice. There're so many kind of it, but we ordered this. and the green one (melon) is the newest product. ^ ^

Well, this restaurant are located right beside cafe been that located in front of Woosong West campus- Daejeon. They sell 2 kinds of bulgogi. The red one are little bit spicy, and the other one are sweet. 



Then the last but not least,
Ginseng Chicken......
If you feel sick or un well, probably you should eat this, this is really good for your health. In the inside of it,in the bottom of it there're rice and the ginseng are inside the chicken. so they cooked that with the ginseng.
Taste less, but little bit expensive coz there're ginseng on it. (10000won)
