We had been having so much street food, and decided to have a proper, leisure, sit-down dinner today 🙂
오우가 Ouga 五友歌 was highly recommended by our friend Ms. K, and it was quite packed when we arrived! Luckily, there was still a table available, and we did not have to wait.
While the staff might not speak much English, their menu was in Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese, so we managed to order without much difficulty.
We opted to share 2 sets, the 생갈비살식 (Saeng Galbisal) Grilled Beef Rib Meal 鮮排骨肉定食套餐 (₩15,000) and 삼곂살정식(Samgyeopsaljeong) Grilled Pork Loin Meal 五花肉定食套餐. Both sets came with 100g of the meat, as well as green tea bamboo rice, vegetables, side dishes, and sauce.
We woke up at 4+ in the morning for the main highlight of our trip, cherry blossom viewing at 진해 Jinhae 镇海!
This year, the 진해군항제 Jinhae Gunhangje Festival 镇海军港祭 (aka Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival) would be held from 1st to 10th April 2017. When we started planning for this trip, the cherry blossom forecast dates were not quite out yet, so we had buffered close to a week in 부산 Busan 釜山, and listed a few things to do in Busan, while keeping things flexible so that we could do a day trip to Jinhae, and hopefully catch the cherry blossoms in their full glory.
We had originally planned to go on a weekday so that it would not be not so crowded, but it appeared that the flowers were approaching full bloom earlier, and the weather forecast for today was rainy all day, which meant that that was a chance that the fragile flowers might be blown away! Today was a Saturday, and also the first day of Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival, so we figured that it was better to be earlier than late.
