It’s been a while since I last updated my blog, because I was away for a family holiday in South Korea in the past couple of weeks. We visited Seoul, the capital city of South Korea, and Jeju Island. It was a gastronomic tour, as well as an emersion in the vibrant Korean culture. Our first stop is the street food at the Dongmun Night Market of Jeju Island, unarguably the best traditional market on the island itself. The first thing that caught our attention was the bright colour of Jeju mandarin oranges, fruit of the winter season. The street food in Jeju Island just could not get any fresher. If I were to compare the street food at Jeju Dongmun Night Market with those at MyeongDong, Seoul, I would give a huge thumbs up to the former.

Sweet sweet discoveries:
One important thing I learned from this trip? Every popular restaurant or cafe features only one specialty with the highest quality possible. For instance, a cafe featuring red bean desserts, a cafe focusing on sweet potato, a restaurant selling the best seafood soup stew in town, etc. You cannot be Jack of all trades. You cannot just sell all kind of desserts.
Focus. Focus on a specialty is key to a successful business.
