Following on from the laid-back pace of our first day in Cambridge, the second day started with a long lie-in and a leisurely breakfast at the hotel. Then there was one small task I had to complete before heading out to discover some more of the city; writing a postcard for the winner of the giveaway that resulted in us being there!

Then it was time to explore. In the same vein as the previous day, we continued to wander without a plan, taking lots of photographs of the beautiful buildings and scenery, and popping inside a couple of the free to enter, university-owned museums dotted across the city.

And of course, I did not forget to get that postcard in a letter box!

Our second day in Cambridge was not only a day of sightseeing though, it was also a day of trying some unusual foods. For lunch we shared a Hungarian Langos and an ostrich burger from the market place, then for dinner it was a Korean meal.

Langos is a deep fried flatbread, and this one was smothered with garlic oil, then topped with sour cream and cheese. I'd never even heard of this Hungarian delight before, but it was amazing! Bread, garlic and cheese are three of my favourite things, so this was just perfect for me. I was a little skeptical about the sour cream, but it worked surprisingly well, cutting through the richness of the garlic and cheese to give the dish a more well-rounded flavour.

Then on to lunch number two. Ostrich has been growing in popularity in the UK for a number of years, but I seem to keep missing my chance to try it. Once I spotted the stall in the market here, I was determined not to miss the opportunity again, and I'm glad I didn't. It was delicious, with a gamey taste, and I was very impressed to hear how much better for you it is than more mainstream meats.

The last, but certainly not least, culinary delight of the day was a meal at Little Seoul. I had never tried Korean food before and had no idea what to expect, but I was blown away by how amazing it was. It was very similar to the Japanese cuisine we tried at Sapporo Teppanyaki in Liverpool, which was so good that it quickly became one of my favourite restaurants in the city.

We were a little overwhelmed by the menu so when the waitress recommended the Bulgogi and the Dolsot Bibimbab, we nodded our heads in agreement. The strips of beef with a gingery sauce that made up the Bulgogi were very tasty, but they had nothing on the Dolsot Bibimbab. The rice, vegetables, beef and fried egg that made up this dish came in a hot stone bowl, and the waitress advised us it was best to add chilli sauce to our taste then mix it all up. We did as instructed and it was just perfect; every mouthful was an explosion of new tastes and textures, and it helped me understand why the word umami originated in that part of the world!

With our bellies full we headed back to the hotel, happy in the knowledge that our second day in Cambridge had been just as perfect as the first.

Have you tried any unusual foods lately?
