Like Sara Kate said in a recent Kitchn email, soup is universal. It's an essential element of nearly every world cuisine, and we love learning more about how people eat soup in their own culture. Here's a shot from the streets of Korea: gukbap soup pots that simmer 24-7!
The photographer says that this soup shop is open 24 hours a day, and that these traditional Korean soup pots never stop cooking! They serve gukbap, soup and rice.
