Are you tired of your friends bombarding you with “food porn” photos? Well, never fear. As if the world needs more food photos, we present you with more! These lovely photos come from Julia, a fellow RP intern, who went to South Korea to visit family and friends, and of course to eat good food! Here are some of her recommendations of things to eat if you ever have a chance to visit South Korea and wonder how you’re going to survive on subsistence once you arrive.

This beauty is from a clandestine travel-themed Raintree Cafe near Ewha Womans University [sic].

Yum, waffles! This is the waffle combo at the Korean coffee chain, Angel-in-us.

A traditional Korean dinner table for two! At a little restaurant hidden in the fashion alleyways of Myeong-dong.

Roasted baby ducks at a festival in Busan, no joke.

Spicy Japanese curry at Abiko’s, also near Ewha Womans University [sic].

When I visited Korea, the cafes were going through a serious brunch boom. This scrumptious platter is from The Egg & Spoon Race.

Some fruity dessert art after a traditional Korean lunch.

Ricepaper Shutterbox, a new photo blog, will explore how photography defines our world. Inspired by the 365 Photo Challenge, we aim to feature images sometimes from our staff , sometimes from local photographers, and sometimes from readers like you. If you have any photos that you feel would fit the blog and inspire us, send them our way! (photo@ricepapermagazine.ca) By showcasing the creative, diverse talents of our community, we hope to visually immerse you in culture and challenge notions of  what it means to be Asian Canadian.
