I love Eel or some called it Unagi. I love fishes and almost all kinds except those fried type. So, when I first visited 황가네 꼼장군 I was excited to try this baby eel that I never ate it before. I thought its really tasty and I never ate something that taste like this at all. I guessed, I am really challenging when I travelling, I basically give a try to almost everything except anything-seaweed-or-vinegar haha! So, after the visit at 황가네 꼼장군, I searched around and found this 신촌 풍천장어. So the recent trip, I wanted to bring the girls to eat Eel yet its somewhere new. Really New & Luxury hahahahhahhaha!
Please forgive me of the not-so-sharp-photos for the direction guide as the rain was pretty heavy and I doesn’t have an umbrella.

I’m sorry that the photo turned out quite badly due to the heavy rains, and the lens was blurred, I didn’t realise it until I was back home.
But, its not too difficult to figure out the way, and its quite easy after exit too :)
Anyway, when I was checking the exact english name of this restaurant (which eventually I can’t find lol), I then realise, this is the one that Jung-Suk (Ha Seok-Jin in Drinking solo) went. I love that drama, its so simply and actually telling quite alot of facts about working life too.

I remembered I don’t really visit Hongdae that much and this year, I went there about 4-5 times? So, I need to research on places to eat around this area since we will be spending the evening here. And, I found this really interesting dinner place where you can cook your food with cheese and be creative with it. (I wanted, but i didn’t) But, heading somewhere new was something I always like to do in Korea, and now with my best cousin, she will delighted to try new food too! :D
haha i forget to take the photo of the cheese, but yeah, it’s quite a bit of portion of different cheese for us to cook with the meat/vege and make cute food! :)
And this was the best I did hahaha > https://www.instagram.com/p/BSHbb28h4CC/

Remember my post on Haru, the Tonkatsu place that Running Man’s Gary introduce during EP288? This time, I will be sharing 골목냉면 the eatery that Yoo Jaesuk’s recommends. Those were the days where Running Man is a must watch variety show for me. I haven’t been watching since 2016? haha! But, good food are still worth the post :) Running Man family did not visited the store, they called delivery service at Gwangsoo’s house instead haha. But, we went to the store to have the meal instead haha. And, yes, we saw the ahjussi that brought the food to them :)

I have been staying at Sinchon for a good 10 times so far, and my aim is to explore all the good foods and cafes around this area haha. There’s always a saying that, if you stay near this area, its always very rare and times you wanted to spend time here…. That happened to me twice in Myeongdong haha. But Sinchon (& Edae) is such a lovely place that fill with many lovely cafes and eateries. Since I stayed Sinchon (most of the time), my first day and last day of my trip definitely spent in Sinchon… I wanted to try something different every trip so my explore spirit will allows me to find more!
Since I’m bringing 2 new friends to Korea this time, I must bring them to eat 찜닭! I always like the one at Gangnam but, doesn’t want to make a trip all the way there this trip. And, I found one in Sinchon and I guessed its my favourite 찜닭 since the first bite haha. My friend whom tried a few 찜닭 the last 2 trips and think this is the best too.
So you know where you can eat 찜닭 after shopping at Sinchon/Edae hehe….
#a really simple and small eatery!
#menu is also simple too!
#they have different type of 찜닭, there’s tomato base, cream base, spicy base etc etc etc :)
#Food is served! We ordered a 4 pax meal, cos they don’t allowed us to order 3 since there’s 4 of us haha.
The rice is topped with a piece of butter, which eventually we stirred with the rice. It’s so fragrant~~~
#another view :) We finished almost all, though its really filling, but because it is so good, we can’t stopped at the “last” piece. There’s always a last piece we claimed too. haha! I was sharing with my friends that I wanted to bring other friends along too! :)

My friend’s korean friend introduce 새마을식당 to us, when we told him that we are going to Gangnam after Manufact (a coffee place) for Ryan Cafe :) The restaurant located in Nonhyeon (subway station is sinnonhyeon) is their main restaurant before they started to have chain restaurants around the city! :)
As someone who do not really like BBQ food/ Pork/ Meat and everything in between, I have to say, this restaurant really serve very very decent and really good BBQ Pork. It’s so nice that, I must bring my cousin here again next year! :)
According to the friend, they have this 7 minutes kimchi-chige that is so good that you must remember to order! So, we were looking forward especially to this even though its pretty much a hot evening :p

Its my third time sharing a 쭈꾸미 restaurant, and this is located conveniently at Sinsa :) Love Sinsa because its filled with Cafes, and I can simply spent a day over there having a good chat with my friends over cake and tea! Spell perfect indeed! My type of holiday! :)
Previously, I have shared one that located at Guri, which is really far! Hence to make my travel time shorter, I visited another one in Jegi-dong (which I have yet share, haha!). I realised, I had to find those that are nearer my accommodation so I can get to eat it easily and I founded 쭈꾸미 블루스 located just 10 minutes away from my guesthouse :) So, next is the current one that I am going to introduce you (with direction guide! say yes!)
#we only ordered the octopus portion since we were really FULL!
#we were given this curry sauce that we supposed to dip with the octopus! :) Its really good! Its a little like the japanese curry :) Its my first time trying 쭈꾸미 given this sauce!
