Today it was all about local drinks and delicious dishes. Gyeongju is famous for Hwangnam bread,a sweet bread the size of a cookie. It's really just a small pastry with a filling of red bean paste andwas a treat to have at breakfast in the morning. Many restaurants offer fresh seafood from nearby Kamp'o Port. Kyongju popju and Hwangkumju are two famous rice wines made locally.
