Korean Convenience Store $10 Breakfast at 7 Eleven in Seoul, Korea

good morning good morning guys greetings
from sunny Seoul South Korea it is early in the morning it’s only 8:30 and we’re
gonna be doing a 7-eleven Korean breakfast haul seven 11 is right
behind me now Korean convenience stores are everywhere in South Korea you can’t
walk a block without finding one so there are really three main convenience
stores in South Korea there’s 7-eleven there’s Family Mart and there’s also CU Soon and what we’re gonna make this into is a bit of a challenge it’s gonna
be a ten US dollar breakfast challenge obviously in the local currency which is
Korean Won and at present exchange its Maneecheon Won so twelve thousand won
I’m gonna be taking that into the 7-eleven grabbing some food bringing it
out here and showing what you can buy for that kind of money so let’s go
inside see what we can get for breakfast bring
it here and eat it right on the street so the first thing for me to do is to
grab the drink I’ve had several coffees of the hotel I’m gonna get a juice silly
thing these are really interesting guys these vitamin drinks To start off with Barbecue oh they have so these are rice rolls
oh yeah the triangle gimbap all mangos is that stuff eating Bibimbap Bibimbap man Oh they have waffles you think he’d make it a mess dude
making a mess you’re one of the yogurt drinks as well not really paying
attention to the price have you been open s I don’t even know what it is –
it’s probably pretty close do you think so it’s always okay to go over does not
really Korean where you know this is actually this is like you can’t break
Korean oh yeah oh yeah they like the sweets in the morning see the hardest
part is that sam hasn’t really been keeping count of how much each thing
costs so happens when he gets up there you might go over so let’s see let’s see
what happens here Sam got one thing that costs almost ten thousand so he almost
ruined the challenge here yeah oh I think I’m good whoa right good good can’t believe I was even
counting and I was able to get it like bang on like it’s all I have left its
equivalent of like less than 20 less than 20 cents the most 15 cents is left
super happy is my haul crazy but it’s funny because that squid I thought it
was priced at 4000 and there’s actually 9000 Won so like 8 9 US dollars alright guys
so this is a breakfast haul it ended up getting eight items for just under
12,000 won so less than ten US dollars that’s like unbelievable value and it’s
a combination of savory and sweet items and so I’ve also got two different
drinks and I’m gonna eat them from eat and drink them from left to right now
711s are different from what you’ll find back in the US or Canada or even Europe
there’s a lot more inside of these ones in Asia it’s just an experience to go in
there because there’s just so much to purchase and anyways I’m hungry so let’s
dig in I am starting off with a vitamin drink it is called Vita 500 (비타 500) which
means but vita means basically vitamin 500 so you’re getting I think 500
milligrams of vitamin C and it’s in a sweet drink actually I remember when I
was feeling sick as an English teacher here some co-workers brought me this as
a very nice gesture you know booster booster your immune
system with some vitamin C and so yeah this is awesome yeah exactly 500
milligrams of vitamin C let’s try that that’s quite sweet it’s got like the
giver have you’ve ever had the chewable vitamin C tablets dissolve them in water
it tastes very much like that really good hey I need to stay healthy on this
trip to you so how could you be having this one shot like it is soju dude
moving on now this is really cool gimbap (김밥) is probably like one of the most classic
kind of Korean fast food breakfast items in fact you can order at any time of day
lunch dinner there’s actual restaurants that specialize in it and what it is is
Korean rice rolls and in the middle you have various ingredients now the one
that I chose today is bulgogi 불고기 one of my favorite Korean foods marinated beef and
so I’m just gonna open it up and show you guys what’s going on so there’s
quite a bit of packaging here look at that oh my gosh look at all the look at
all the bulgogi in there there’s not the bulgogi
you’ve got carrots it looks like we have cucumber as well so a nice mix of meat
and veggies obviously rice on the outer layer and the far outer layer is the
kim the seaweed so let’s try that I really taste of bulgogi mmm love that
meat man if anyone’s coming to Korea for the first time a really safe item to try
is bulgogi because it’s not too spicy I love that man nice dense rice roll and
this is a part of food that really fills you up like if you finish this hole then
you’re pull this looks like a it’s basically just a prepackaged waffle I
I’m a I’m actually seeing like these are more I I don’t think these are Korean
characters and if so they’re written in such a way that I can’t read them so I’m
not sure what it’s called is saying Sakura sak so this could potentially be
a Japanese product that sold in Korea I I don’t know entirely but these kind of
pastries is kind of like a prepackaged waffles are quite common in convenience
stores in Korea so I’m just gonna hold that up for you
so it’s not a crispy waffle like the kind you would get if you put it into
the toaster you can see that it just it feels kind of soft in the hand
right what is that it’s fairly sweet you can tell that like soft it soft has a
soft texture but it’s like he tells not freshly-baked so this is an item that is
a big hit or miss for me it’s also something that I love more about now I’m
still moving on to the fourth item I am getting a red bean paste bar I don’t
know the name of this it’s like yeah obviously has like a Chinese characters
and even the Korean I can’t really tell I think it’s young yang-gon gang young
young gang could be wrong about that comes in a gold wrapper probably looks
like a chocolate bar but it isn’t wiggles like a jelly so smooth and sweet
and you get the intense red bean flavor it’s also obviously got a considerable
amount of sugar this is kind of like a dessert bar tense red bean paste I
really like this one I remember trying it many years ago in Korea I’ve had in a
long time so I was happy to pick that up moving on to the fourth item this is
called yoga yoga rigidly a yogurt drink I’m not sure what flavors that says nom
young I don’t know what that means to be honest you can read the Korean and
pronounce it kind of poorly but I don’t know what it means it’s gonna crack that
open oh it’s got one of those tops seals in the freshness to make sense since
it’s kind of a milk it’s a milk product that’s a tough one to pop
there we go Oh super-sweet yogurty milky drink no I
think it’s got a lot of sugar in the there man it’s very sweet
not my favorite that’s another item that I probably won’t get again now this is
one of the most classic items you can find in a Korean convenience store this
is called oh this is Bibimbap oh this is actually a bibimbap flavor but I believe
this is called Samgak (삼각김밥) got triangle gimbap anyways the most fascinating thing
because there’s a procedure to open it it gives you instructions like one two
three and so I’m going to attempt to do this I’m probably gonna screw it up but
let’s try so step one I go like this okay on that part step two I believe I just
take it out try two ready remove this plastic oh look at
that came out step 3 I pulled it out from there and Wow guys
it’s basically just rice with ingredients inside look at that this is
called the bibimbab got different kinds of vegetables it appears to be a little
maybe a little bit of meat or mushroom it looks like we have onions and carrots
and then of course the classic red pepper paste sauce which is the
gochujang and a shaped like a triangle hence it’s called triangle gimbap Sam
in Korean means 3 so that’s why I think it’s called Samgak
but I could be wrong please correct me if I am all right so you basically hold
it the seaweed wrapper gives you it’s basically like a handle so you don’t get
your hands all sticky and you can just bite right into it that stuff is the best of all the things I’ve had for breakfast
this morning I like that’s the most I like it even more
than the gimbap over here crazy good grab only got two more things to try what
does they have no idea what this is it’s just like it stood out to me in the
store so I ended up getting it it’s called the Maxs Bong
max bond and if I have if I could take a guess it’s either gonna be like a tofu
kind of stick or maybe something with like with an odeng kind of fish style
not sure be honest I don’t even know how to open it I think it’s here I think I
see an arrow so let’s see what I can do here yeah this is how you open it
prepackaged stuff guys so you just go like this and you’ve got
your item on a stick let’s take a bite oh I’m all your hot dog you got an artificial
flavor to it I’m not a fan of hot dogs in the first place I’m because this is
cold this is an item that I wouldn’t get again and last but not least I’m going
for something sweet this is a baked good as coal GG it’s cheesecake cheesecake
flavor bomb basically soft looks like a soft fun prepackaged I’ve tried this
before in Korea as well usually I actually get it from a place called
Perry baguette which is also a very popular place to get breakfast in South
Korea it’s a bakery so just open it up like this it’s got like kind of like a
muffin wrapper at the bottom open it up like that I’m gonna break in half very
very soft texture very fluffy subtle choose pick flavor sweet but not overly
sweet of all the sweet things I’ve had aside from this bar which is my favorite
it’s my second favorite sweet item I like it way more than the waffle if you
have a choice between these two items I would definitely go for this cheese bun
just keep on alright Sam so I also threw the $10 convenience store challenge onto 7-eleven
and a lot of things I did some things differently than you yeah also the seaweed straight see we like sheets of seaweed
yeah amazing super salty and then I got some porridge
something like oyster porridge I’m gonna try a few things for you I’ll start with
this one it’s not my favorite thing in the world but they say people love it
here in Korea it’s gonna mix it up you know it was amazing with your challenges
you hit the 12,000 won mark like it’s not literally yeah alright so let’s get
some of this check this out see that mussel right there it must be a
muscle an oyster figure right see soup with seafood not my thing
sorry I don’t know you like most things in Korea so far yeah I love everything
in Korea everything in Korea has been like especially the spice yeah but this
has to be my favorite right here like gimbap ax the gimbap a hand roll it’s
just so good oh yes so it’s beef right yeah BBQ beef it’s a little creamy
there’s a some rice and there’s some carrot or I might do is I’m gonna
combine some of this on it I just really love the seaweed like I love the salty
goodness man it’s very salty it’s just like a tiny cracker you eat the whole
thing and it’s like five copies these sheets are unreal it’s so salty
great crunchy yeah I love about it is how creamy it is inside sometimes it’s
great plan or suppose it’s like baked crabs not this is like delicious
barbecue beef and guys I hope you love my part of this video I’ll see you in
the next adventure so overall a really good haul for 12 less than 12,000 won
ten US dollars will recap two drinks over here the savory rice items with
these two things three sweet items then this hotdog which I didn’t like so my
favorite two items from the savory section right over here triangle gimbap
bibimbap flavor and the soft little cheesecake flan favorite drink between
the two definitely the vitamin C so I’d say about half of the stuff I really
enjoyed and the other half was more hit or miss anyways guys I hope you enjoyed
