東京の新大久保にあるコリアタウンに行って来ました。びっくりしました。駅の前に観光客がたくさん・・・大阪の鶴橋と対象的・・・大阪の鶴橋は 本当の在日の町ですね。新大久保はニューカマーの生活を支える町と韓流ブームのグーズをゲット出来るところです。

お料理も違いますね。鶴橋と言えば在日の生活を支えて来た焼肉屋さんが多くて、新大久保ではサンギョプサル(焼き豚)のお店の多さに驚きました。人気のあるお店の外に30人ほどがベンチに座って待っていました・・・・

折角ならサンギョプサルに挑戦しました。美味しかったですね。使い捨ての竹網のようなものに焼、ソウルで食べる味と変わらなくて、パンジャンを次々と変えてくれました。又、行きます・・・・・

I just visited the Korea town in ShinOkubo in Tokyo. Wow! The station was packed with tourists and it was very different to Tsuruhashi in Osaka- home of zainichi Koreans. Shin Okubo appears to be an area for Koreans known as the “new comers” ( in comparison to zainichi Koreans who have been here for almost 100 years) and a place where you can go to buy your Hallyu goods. The food is also very different, the food in Tsurhashi is the old style zainichi food like yakiniku but the in ShinOkubo there are lots of Sangyoepsal( BBQ pork) eateries. They must be very popular because there were as many as 30 people waiting in front of some of the shops. So, we decided to go give it a try, the meat was barbequed on top of a bamboo rack (interesting) and we were given as many side dishes as we could eat….just like Seoul. The food in comparison to Tsuruhashi food also, was very modern Seoul authentic style….I’ll be going back for sure!
