[Seoul] Sangsu: Kimpira 김피라

[Travel in October/November 2016]

Before heading for our very first trip together, we were watching Battle trip, and there’s EP on Seoul Snack… and one of the places that APINK’s Eunji and Bomi introduce is this place Kimpira. Honestly, the food that they ordered look extremely yummy! So, I thought, maybe we could give it a try and… let me share more about it in a while :)

We also order this carbonara which is a little different. The noodle wasn’t the usual pasta, more like our jajangmyeon noodle too :)

Oido Island Seafood

Remember my previous post on Day trip to Daejeon?

Actually, we didn’t end our day just like this. We were pretty adventurous and wanted our trip to be a bit different lol. I mean, honestly, that’s a little crazy and I thought both of us were perfectly fine with such plan (like travel long hours in trains or buses). Previously we thought we might have more time, and manage to catch the orange sky (sunset lol), but the daylight was shorter since its almost winter. But, we decided to proceed and go ahead with the plan… So glad we did! :)

P.S. It takes about 1hr 20mins from Seoul Station to Oido Station :) 

I actually know of Oido when I was watching Beast Show Time (if you know, they have left Cube, and setup Around Us will be debuting as “Highlight” this year onwards. I’m support all the way!). It’s a little far, but you get to Oido just in 1hr 20mins via train :) 

We took a cab from the station to the Red Lighthouse :)

Gaepan 개판 by Shinhwa’s Minwoo

[!!!!] Gaepan have officially closed on 29 November 2016. It’s been a great 7 years for Minwoo’s family. Lots of memories created too. For me, I bring most of my favourite people there to have a meal as well. It’s been a total of 23 trips and many of them makes me a happy person because the food is just so yummy just so tasty. I missed the egg roll alot because I don’t think I can or able to find one that taste this good. Thank you Gaepan :) 

[Last Travelled in March/April 2016]

I have been wanting to blog about this “a-must-visit-restaurant-every-korea-trip” since my first visit in 2013. But, I thought, I must leave the best to the last. And, I really want many people to try their SUPER DUPER YUMMY Cheese Egg Roll and Chicken Stew, and yes even their Lunch Box is nicer than any other restaurants I visited! :)

(Note, if you have bought “Oppa! Take me to Korea!” travel book, I have guest-feature in the book on Gaepan too! I’m also 1 of the creative designers behind this awesome travel book too!)

Every Korea trip since then, is a must visit to Gaepan! I checked my swarm for the address and realise, I actually check-in for 19 times! Hence, you can imagine how many foods I have tried here before listed my favourite dish here! :p
