Korea Remembered (Madrigl)
by Miles H. Rost
Nambu Market in Jeonju was one of a few placed I loved to go.
The shops, the smells of the food, the atmosphere; All of it was intoxicating.
The blood sausage restaurant, serving up sundae, was lined up down the lane. I passed them all by. No twenty minute wait for me.
The kalguksu shop I went to had soft asia-jazz playing, and was a great place for someone like me.
The server put some water on my table, and asked me for my order.
“Mandu Kalguksu wa cola hanpyeong gajuseyo.” *
She smiled as she went to make my order.
*- “Knife-cut noodle soup with dumplings, and 1 glass of cola, please.”
