How to Order Korean Home Delivery


Alright! So, as you may have seen our door
before, we are covered with ads. These ads are always left outside of our door, and they’re
all magnetized. And we’ve been collecting them and covering our door. But we’ve never
actually ordered from them. Until today! We’re finally gonna try to order. Now, this might
be embarrassing. They might hang up on us, we don’t know. But we wanna order some Korean
food, for Korean delivery. So! Let’s give it a shot. Okay, so the number’s down here. There’s no
area code in front of it. In Bucheon, we’re pretty sure the area code is 032, so let’s
give this a shot and hopefully they won’t laugh at me. Wish me luck. ANNYEONGHASAYO! AH. HANA DOLSOT BIBIMBAP AH.
HANA MUL NYENG MYEON. NAY. AHHH (this is where we say our apartment). B-DONG. PAL KONG SAH.
PAL
KONG SAH. NAY. UHH. HANGUGUL CHOGUM ARAYO. YONGOL NAY YONGOL. NAY. YOBOSAYO. YONGOLUL.
NAY. ENGLISH! 804. 804. (This is where we say our apartment). OK. Okay, so in that phone conversation this is
what happened. We knew what we wanted to order, and this is why you should learn a bit of
Korean beforehand because, as you see here, nothing is written in English. But the two
arrows right here are pointed to what we ordered. We knew that the top one said dolsot bibimbap
which I happen to like and the bottom arrow is mul nyeng myeon which Martina happens to
like. So when you heard me on the phone I said “hana dolsot bibimbap” and “hana” means
“one” and I asked for “hana mulnyengmyeon” which also means one mulnyengmyeon. Ahh. The
problem arised when we wound up giving our address. I told him the place but as soon
as we got to the number, that’s where the confusion ara—uh, arose. And he couldn’t
understand what I was saying. So that’s when I wound up saying “hangugul chogum aroyo”
which means “I only speak a little bit of Korean” because that’s when he started speaking
Korean very quickly to me and I can’t really understand it. So then in the end I wound
up saying “Yongo Yongo!” “English!” which means “I speak English” of course, and in
the end I wound up giving him the numbers in English, and he wound up saying something
else to me; I’m not sure if he understood. And then he hung up the phone. So we’re gonna
wait for about half an hour to 45 minutes, and hopefully some food will arrive. If not,
we’ll try with somebody else or just go to the convenience store and eat some chips.
So, see you again in 45 minutes. Ladies and gentlemen: great success! So: you
see this basket right here? This is actually what we were given; we were given this basket
by the delivery guy. And here we have the bibimbap. You see it comes in its own little
stone bowl; it’s wrapped in saran wrap. Here’s Martina’s mul nyeng myeon in its own metal
bowl and saran wrap. Here we got some appetizer bean soup. Here we got a tupperware container
full of FREE appetizers. And here we have Martina’s individually wrapped and sanitized
little spoon. You see that? (I love these!) and look at the back it just pops right out
like that. And here we have our chopsticks. Now what’s great about this is you might wonder
about these bowls right here. What do we do with them afterwards? Now, as soon as we’re
done eating, we put all of our used stuff back in the container and we leave it outside
our door. He’s gonna come back in maybe three or four hours, I’m not sure when, but sooner
or later he’s gonna come and pick up all the dishes. So essentially this meal cost us nine
dollars: he delivers it to us, everything is all wrapped up, and we don’t even have
to clean the dishes. He does it all for us. Tell me that’s not awesome! Why doesn’t Canada
do it this way?! Let me know! (There you go!) Alright. We’re ready to dig in.
