KOREAN ABROAD

This is an on-going list of experiences eating Korean food outside of Korea.  While the list covers a lifetime, the first 16 cities were pre-GMTD and thus undocumented; for some of those cities (e.g., Los Angeles), later posts have been added; proper documentation begins with the 17th city.  In many cases, the Korean food was not the featured meal of the post.
