My Story Covering OpenWebAsia ’08 On The Web

I was so surprised that I could eat “Takoyaki” or grilled wheat cakes with octopus even in Korea.   (Takoyaki originates from Osaka where I was born and grew up.)

(People call it “Muno Pang” in Korean.   I’m against the view that this is a kind of “Pang” meaning bread, on behalf of all Osakan people.)

Muno Pang Street Stall in Seoul Muno Pang or Takoyaki

When I was in Seoul last October, I was too busy to go to restaurant for the dinner, “Muno Pang” was my dinner on the day before OpenWebAsia’s event was held.

(Eating Oden at street stall is excellent in this season’s Seoul.    Korean expression of Oden has same pronounciation with that of Japanese.)

My Story covering the event is now on the web.
