Food may pertain to the lower need of men but drawing its richness can bring us to a lofty paradigm, making us realize that it can also be divine. As an old adage says, “When the body is well, the soul dances.”
Seoul is a good host to encounter this quid divinum. Through its gamut of street food to its more regal food, this place serves as a springboard to jump from a mere food consumer to a connoisseur to a contemplative individual. That food is not just for one’s survival but it unfurls the reality that man is a variegated being.
