With summer approaching, I miss grilling out on the deck, running around barefoot in the grass, and going to garage sales with my dad.  I miss driving and seeing wide open spaces.

Foods that you miss the most in your country.

Hello everyone, I have a question.
Few weeks ago, my friends(South Africa) bought dinner for me. And I want to buy something for them.
At first, I was thinking about buying Korean food for them, but I wasn't sure whether they would like the Korean food I chose or not. I want to give them things they would like to eat.

please tell me the food you miss the most in your country or recommend Korean food you enjoyed here in Korea. ;)

Thank you!

Cheaper food, fuel, cars, electronics etc. I miss fried fish, Lent (I'm not Catholic but I really love fried fish, a part of my local culture.) Oktoberfest, people with manners, Waffle House, Larosa Pizza, Netflix, Cincinnati Chili, and other local foods. the list goes on.

On the other hand many of the foods mentioned are not really healthy for me so living in Korea has been better for my diet.

Blue Moon and Shocktop beers.  How do these not exist in Korea?

I miss cheap year round golf too. Also warm and sunny weather 365 days a year minus the occasional rain shower during the wet season.

Oh, and noodle soup!

Family and friends first! 

But then I also miss the southern California sunshine and close to zero humidity. 

I miss the open-mindedness of my co-workers and the generally liberal vibe of southern CA.

I miss having people to actually talk to at work.

I miss driving.

I miss the diversity of foods available at the grocery store and in terms of eating out.

I miss many things.
