Chicken Soup For The Insanely Ridiculous Heat And Humidity
Daegu, South Korea.
Here's my first bowl of samgyetang, ginseng-chicken soup, of the summer. I still think boiling a whole chicken rather than frying or roasting it is a waste of good poultry, but the overall experience has grown on me. I’ve lived here long enough to appreciate how a bowl of steaming hot soup can actually cool you down on a ridiculously hot day. And a few shots of ginseng liquor helped out.
The inside of that little fellow is stuffed with rice which kind of melts down into a porridge, along with jujubes.
