[Seoul] 팔팔민물장어

[Travel in March/April 2017]

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.

Eel’s bone, its like crackers, and its quite addictive! :p

 photo IMG_6637 copy_zpsbyri3jfa.jpg
The menu, we accidentally ordered the luxury eel at 85,000won each (85USD) lol

It’s really expensive as it cost 170,000won for this meal, but I think we all ended up have happy tummy! :)

 

Direction to 팔팔민물장어

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 :)

Exit 1 at Sinnohyeon Station & Walk straight

#the lens must be really wet!

 photo IMG_6628 copy_zpsgj4qenoa.jpg
 photo IMG_6659 copy_zpsyn9xwsdx.jpg
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.

[Hongdae] Made by [O:Z] 메이드바이오즈

[Travel in March/April 2017]

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

Sinchon: General Braised Chicken 장군찜닭

[Travel in March/April 2017]

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….

#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~~~

 photo IMG_6603 copy_zpsyptpd0zb.jpg
#close up! there’s rice cake, braised chicken, fried squid ring too! Yums! I love their glass noodle too!

 photo IMG_6602 copy_zpsnfwueigf.jpg
#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! :)

Hongdae: Tokkijung Project 토끼정(停)

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I’m sure you did find the increase of this whipped cream dish appearing on instagram or facebook very often. And, if you are a follower of #hellosihuigoeskorea / ig: @superstarhui, you did see it too. My friends and I like it and conclude it really deserve a post in hellosihui.com haha. So here you go, I’m gonna first share of our March/April trip here :)

Tokkijung Project 토끼정(停) is first located in Gangnam area, where they served Japanese cuisine. But, I found another outlet in Hongdae, and very please to visit there since we wanted to go some shopping at Aland (oh my favourite!), so it will be really great to dine in Hongdae instead. While we opt out of BBQ and picked this creamy choice instead was pretty much one of the best decision we made in Hongdae haha.

 photo IMG_6531 copy_zpsplt15oky.jpg
#Hongdae outlet looks pretty from the outside… (& inside)

So, are you ready for the food? This time round, we had 4 of us, and we ordered a little bit more to try :)

 photo IMG_6506 copy_zpsxjqthtsf.jpg
#our drink came first. We wanted something different so we order something interesting. a fruity milk soda and a fruity soda drink :) We were really wondering how this milk soda taste and in fact, its really really nice and interesting. We were overwhelmed by the taste haha

 photo IMG_6520 copy_zpsdv92z99p.jpg
#we got the food box which have beef and chicken and some sides, which is amazing tasty! The girls love the beef alot, while, chicken is still very good! :)

 photo IMG_6517 copy_zpsfitvjlbj.jpg
#everyone love rice, and whats more with egg and hams haha!

 photo IMG_6516 copy_zpsq6n29hnk.jpg
#this is the amazing cream curry udon that you had and must order if you are here haha! Its prety much a very very simple dish…. at first I thought its a carbonara type of udon. but its wasnt. when you stirred it, its mixed well with the curry udon and its not even too heavy in taste. It’s just perfect, and amazing haha.

 photo IMG_6512 copy_zpsjqajpfie.jpg
#because we are unsure about how well we can take a cream udon so we order a normal curry udon which is not bad too. But we conclude, we could have just order the cream one next time haha.

새마을식당 New Maul (Nonhyeon’s Outlet)

[!!!] This New Maul outlet had closed, you may want to visit the one at Sinchon
[Travel in August 2016]

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
