Hello Korea 2022/2023 Day 1: 두마리찜닭 신촌집

[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

Before I head back to Sinchon for my dinner… Let me share that few hours what did I do haha….

After I left Hannam-Itaewon, my next agenda was head over to Myeongdong. There’s so many sports shop and I believe I will stand a chance to get something there. I dropped by TNF first because I thought its better to go to the biggest outlet at Myeongdong. After that, I walked down the street and go in almost every shops possible. Next will be Lotte young plaza – Find Toms and Nerdy. Anyway, as seen on photo, I went back TNF and grabbed a down coat hehe 🙂 I bought this W’s Air Heat Down Coat

Honestly, I feel a little to sad to see many of the shops in Myeongdong closed. Many stores have closed, some are enclosed with no new tenants. I used to think, Myeongdong is too crowded that we always have problem moving around the street and the store. Who knows, its so much easier now – but in a bad way 🙁

I actually thought of eating 장군찜닭 because I thought the butter rice was interesting, dipping with the sauce will be perfect! I love my rice drowning with sauce!

But the shop has been replaced, I do thought of a standby in case the shop closed – chargrill chicken ramen (anyway I double check the store it was closed too) since the shop replace is a 찜닭 store, so why not! 🙂 These days you have to make more plans because a lot of stores closed during covid!

Cheese makes everything really yummy!!!! 🙂
