Jagalchi Seafood Market in Busan.
The most incredible Temple to Seafood I’ve ever had the fortune to experience. Please excuse the hyperbole.
Must be over 100? 200? Venders. The seafood here are the brightest, freshest specimens I’ve ever seen.
My nieces really wanted Octopi. Not for the novelty factor, because they REALLY loved eating these critters. These were lively and playing tug-o-war with our plate, our chopsticks and tongue. Lightly accented this time, perfect.
BIL handpicked these prawns. So fresh, the were almost translucent. The heads had globs of liver and tomalley that rivaled the tails for taste. Raw was better than the cooked.
Finally got to try the “Asian Scallops”. Nice, but not better than the traditional Scallop, Abalone or Clam.
@Nathan_Jones Thanks for the rec. Hairtail is juicy and succulent. I want a meal with just the hairtail fish, rice and a vegetable. My idea of a simple perfect meal!
Got our Squid. We followed our server’s suggestion and had it lightly boiled and it was good. Methinks I’d rather have it just plain o’ sashimi’d, next time.
Finished the meal with a Fish Head and (what we call) Hot Pot Vegetable Soup.
Our hotel is a mere 15 minute walk to this Warehouse of Seafood. I’ll be more than surprised if we don’t eat here at least once a day during our 4 day Busan leg. So much for touristing to Asia for the cheap eats. sigh
