The city of Jeonju (전주시) in the north Jeolla province of South Korea is considered one of the best places to go for traditional Korean cuisine.

Jeonju is just an hour and half south of Seoul and can easily be visited on a day-trip from the capital.

The Korean War destroyed large sections of many Korean towns and cities, so a preserved and well maintained area like the Hanok village is quite special.

The Hanok village is a well-preserved example of traditional Korean architecture and culture.

When I visited the city in 2011 there was a gourmet Korean food festival happening, with lots of interesting Korean meals on display.

While I didn’t get to try most of them, they looked like ‘fine-dining’ versions of many popular Korean dishes.

There also appeared to be some type of combination of kimchi and chocolate but I can’t be 100% sure!
