쭈꾸미 블루스 Baby Octopus with Pork Belly

[Travel in December 2015]

I have tried this stir-fried baby octopus dish at Inchang Octopus and one of the restaurants at Jegi-dong (octopus alley). I am so impressive with how chewy, how soft, how juicy it were. It was then, I really think the journey to jegi-dong or guri is too far and I need to find a place that is within Seoul, and best to be within mapo-gu area. So, here’s one I found in Sinchon! Hurrrray! :)

We supposed to order 3 serving as there’s 3 of us, but they were SOOOO NICE and let us ordered just 2 serving instead teeheehee! Told you, koreans are really nice and helpful and not forceful! :)

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

The Garden of Morning Calm 아침고요수목원

[Travel during December 2014]

If you are planning for a winter trip to Korea this year, you might want to consider The Garden of Morning Calm for its Lighting Festival. This festival will only for 3 months annually, so when I confirmed my trip to Korea last year…. I had to visit here! :)

Its takes quite a long journey to travel down, I remembered buying drinks to keep myself warm in the subway while heading over :p I’m very thankful that in Korea, we get to drink on the subway, and surprisingly, there’s no litter around. Sometimes I wish, my country have more civilise people who love their country more.

BEAST’s Cube Cafe and Studio

[Travel in March 2013 – December 2015]

[!!! •  Updated on 20 February 2016] Cube Entertainment have shifted to Seongsu, Cube cafe is currently located at the level 1 of their new office building. Note that, the cafe now is currently renovating! :)

Every trip I will pay a visit to Cube Cafe, first their drinks are pretty not bad, and its a great place for a rest before heading to my favourite restaurant – Gaepan (which I will shortly share this place). And, of cos, it will be even awesome to see BEAST here too. If not, having a drink will be equally good and awesome :)

So, we headed over to the “Showroom Area” :)

I supposed to blog about the cube cafe when I first visited it in 2013, but I didn’t have the chance? or maybe I was too busy? Maybe I wanted and always love to keep the best last? That why Cube Cafe posting have always been delay. But, since I have already prepared to blog about the cube cafe back then, I thought will be interesting to share here to give everyone a recap how the old cube cafe look like. My cousins love the new cube cafe because its more lively and cheerful. Something very different. I love the new cube cafe color too. mint x pink is nothing but awesome. But, the old cube cafe looks very much like “CUBE” more. But, they removed the handprints from the old cube cafe. And, I missed out Dongwoon’s thought I will be able to take the picture the recent May trip but T.T its all gone!

JYP 2PM: The Street Cafe Bistro

On my last day of my winter trip, despite not wanting to be back so soon… I wished to cover more cafes :) At this point of time, Cin was sharing this cafe – The Street which located very near to Cube Cafe (which I will be visiting after this) that maybe if I have time, I can go for a drink. My last day was pretty much cafes day + searching high and low for Honey Butter Chips! Honestly, I have no idea this cafe is owned by 2PM or JYP or so… because you can’t find much traces of them here except they located pretty near! Nevertheless, artists under JYPE had share this cafe on their SNS, and one of the biggest event was (2PM) Taecyeon Birthday Party was held here too. Well, whether its owned by JYP or 2PM, I thought its a pretty nice place to have a small bite or salad here :)

A cafe is worth visiting not because who owned it, or who endorse it. The most importantly is either the food/drink are nice or the ambience is good and comfy.
