Eating for 14 Days in a Korean Quarantine Facility

This is a great article from Eater, entitled "How I Ate My Way Through 14 Days in a Korean Quarantine Facility". Basically a diary of the writer's experience in a situation where the only relief is his meals. Great looking food, too.

Two weeks in a Korean quarantine facility took my sense of time, space, and rational thought — but never my appetite

 

I almost want to go to Korea and be locked up for 14 days!

I guess I should emphasise we are talking about SOUTH Korea!

Thank you for posting this.  Utterly fascinating and truly touching.  The funny thing is that almost none of the food appealed to me, yet I was riveted by his story and so happy at the end when he got to give his mom the "biggest hug".  Universal feelings about food and family and the appreciation of what one has.

I was kind of the same. Korean food isn't my favourite, but I may reappraise it after reading that and seeing the pictures.

Thanks for posting this. Makes me think I was born into the wrong culture. I so enjoy a meal made up of so many different tastes and textures. After almost 13 months in lockdown I have to say that 14 days sounds like a cakewalk.
