Fresh food in Korea + Seven Springs

One of the hardest things for me about living in Korea is the lack of fresh, juicy, delicious fresh fruits and veggies. In the Vancouver area, fresh produce is abundant and cheap, but it's a different story here. Of course it's possible to get plenty of lovely colourful foods, but they are quite costly and I can't help but miss the local foods that I ate almost daily back home. 

Soooo, I fell in love with Seven Springs, which offers an amazing buffet of healthy food. They have a giant salad bar with oodles of choices so that you can make a custom salad. The dessert table has many fruits and you can also make a yogurt parfait with their homemade yogurt as a delicious base. There's cake and ice cream too if fruit isn't quite enough. There's also plenty of warm food, including roasted veggies, spaghetti, pizza, juk (a kind of porridge made from rice and other nourishing ingredients), etc. 

The cost is pretty expensive (for Korea), but all the food is absolutely delicious. Also, it's lovely to sit by a window and be surrounded by plants and natural wood. The decor is beautiful, simple, and meant to create a kind of urban picnic atmosphere.

I've already gone two times and I will definitely go there again!
