I've lived in Korea a while, and I can tell you some stories about Korea's and Korean's misinterpretations of Western cuisine.
One favourite is the pickle and strawberry jam club sandwiches I once had in Anguk-dong. And I think we've all had a "close but no cigar" moment - Nachos with ketchup, Kiwi puree and whipped sweet cream standing in for Salsa, Guacamole and Sour Cream respectively!
Monday saw a new and interesting addition to the list:
That large white mass in the middle of this green salad, covered in olive oil and a vinaigrette? Is it sour cream? Cottage cheese? Mashed potato?
Vanilla Ice Cream!
