A typical market food stall features a veritable smorgasbord of goodies, some recognizable and some barely so. This woman in Namdaemun is of the Omnivore School of Cuisine, with products ranging from sea cucumber to chicken on a stick, from blood sausage to buckwheat noodles, and a full range of condiments (ketchup, mayo, mustard, hot sauce, soya sauce, relish, weird purple sauce) in squeeze bottles. Sadly, our Korean is not yet refined enough to inquire of the chef the proper garnish for abalone.
