I would like Gamjatang to be on this list .I don't think anything from Lotteria should be here. I think anything from a small country market should be here (from a town not bigger then 15 ooo people), its truly special to be involved it that. I would Also like to see goat and Duck. Maybe yukkaejang or anything with Korean mountain vegetable.

But after all that I am left with 85 . I do want to eat all the sea food stuff . Which I have been planning with some Korean friend. I have had eel at home many times . I have been eel fishing.

Not sure about eating cows stomach( I have done its not good) and the Liver but its not good and I think the liver is a filter I am not sure its really very good to eat raw.

Silk worm Larva stinks . I just don't want to eat something that smells that bad.

And steamed eggs should be ate while hanging out naked at the sauna .
