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.

Korean culture has a great variety of (traditional alcoholic beverages)1, and alot of history behind it too.Historical books claim that a long time ago there was a king who enjoyed alcohol to tempt woman to want to have many children. We asked which king was it but the servers said its just an old fairy tale. Still we where fasinated how history and culturemixes in thier every day lives. Food and drink plays a historical part in Korean culture.
