In a Pickle

Another element of Korean life which may surprise you is the side of pickles popping up in the oddest of places. For example, they arrive when you order pizza. Or fried chicken. Or Thai noodle dishes. I even got an unexpected serving the other day when I visited an Indian restaurant -they came with my garlic nan and chicken tikka masala. It's worth noting that the pickles are sweet, never dill. And even though I don't care for sweet pickles, I usually eat them anyway, maybe out of habit at this point. Or maybe to ward off potential illnesses which they could help to prevent. Who's to say, really? 

When in Seoul, when in Seoul...
