Quarantine Food

Hello! As someone who would be interested in what kinds of foods are given during a mandatory quarantine, I am here to provide some pictures! Some details, I am brought three meals daily (breakfast-08:30, lunch-13:00 and dinner-18:00). I have no say what so ever for the kinds of meals I am given. I know that if you have special dietary restrictions or allergies they do accommodate that but since I stated on my forms that I didn't have any, my meals are the norm. So far, I really have been liking the food. There are quite a few food items I am not familiar with but I do try and taste all of the food items at least once! I would say my favorite meals have been lunch and my least favorite meals are breakfasts. They give us so much food in a single meal that I can never finish an entire meal and always feel bad for having to throw away so much (we leave our leftovers at the front of our doors for them to pick up at every meal).

Some things I have noticed with Korean meals, almost all meals come with either soup or rice. Breakfast includes some type of salad (not a fruit salad but like a legit lettuce type of salad). The desserts we get tend to be a like literally 1-2 grapes, or 1 tomato or a single slice of apple. South Korea doesn't really do savory so almost anything that’s suppose to be savory is actually sweet tasting. The meals have been good and I have't had to go into my American food stash much!
