Hello Korea 2022/2023 Day 1: 보승회관 홍대

[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

보승회관 홍대

My first day of Korea was to run errand – getting ready and prepare for the next 13 days winter trip. Pre-trip I actually went to Uniqlo, Northface and Coldwear but decided maybe Korea has prettier option. I braved through the weather (the coldest winter in Korea ever!) in my Wool Coat and start hunting for my winter downcoat & foot wear.

So, first stop is Hong-dae, so after shopping I realise I really need to eat first before going to Han-nam as it will be too late before dinner again. Hence, just dropped by to try this 보승회관 at hongdae. Hot and Soupy for the first meal to warm the stomach! 🙂

This is with all kind of pork intestine… 😱

Best Part: Soupy meal on a cold day

Will I come back? I think this will be a perfect meal on a day where I want my late and simple supper. But No, I wont go back on normal days because I am not a fan of rice or pork :p
