[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

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.

[Sinsa Garosu-gil] Kitchen Lab 키친랩

[Travel in March/April 2017]

With Six+One or My cousins, I will always make the initiatives to plan for our Korea trip. That’s because, I visited really alot of times, and as someone so close to them, I will know where to bring them, and what type of holiday they probably looking for. As for my this #weseoulchio, they are really friends who can’t eat spicy foods, and most korean cuisine are spicy. There’s some i wanted to bring them to try but I guessed its too spicy for them (Sinsa Octopus / Potato Stew) so, I thought a pasta place will be good for them hence, we trying Kitchen Lab. (Oh, did I tell you before, in Korea, almost every other things taste good despite they might be non-korean dishes?)

So, let me share some of the dishes we ate during our last trip! :)

[Itaewon: Hangangjin] Passion5 패션5

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I always love strawberry and one of my crazy dream is to own a strawberry cafe in a shape of a strawberry! haha!!! So, I tried to visit many cafes that specialise strawberry as much as I can too. Well, if my dream of having a strawberry cafe doesn’t come true, I will have really enjoyable research on strawberry dessert haha.

This is one of the cafe I have been wanting to visit, but Itaewon, honestly wasn’t a place we visited often unless there’s a purpose? haha (I had line cafe or lobster meal in Itaewon previously)

So, we definitely spoilt for choices, you see, we only have 4 tiny stomach but we have more than 40 choices to pick! haha, it’s definitely difficult! :) I would love to pick all strawberries, like strawberries shortcake, strawberry tiramisu and strawberry eclair, well, maybe next time! :)

We picked strawberry shortcake + Coffee Tiramisu + Chocolate Eclair in the end.

I think I have said many many times that coming to Korea is to enjoy all kind of food because, Korea served really great food from Pasta, Dessert (be it korean style or japanese style), Chinese food, Japanese etc etc. And I’m going to share with you something you will need after a long stay in Korea – Salad.

Apgujeong Rodeo: MCM Haus Cafe

[Travel in March / April 2017]

Every Korea trip needs a MCM visit because I LOVE MCM :) We actually visited it after the Café Dior by Pierre Hermé and we were so full too.

Trying out many different bags, and I think I got some self-control somehow just because I thought I shldn’t be since I already spent the budget on my 3 weeks trip this time LOL. We were looking at bags and my cousin decided to get one as her birthday gift. The SA was really nice and patience. I remembered the one 4 years ago was so bad that they doesn’t even allow us to go to other floor to check out the bags -.- Well, I still visit the one at Apgujeong Rodeo often (or Sinsa’s). Oh did I mentioned, I received a tote bag from MCM too? She gave 2 and each of us got 1 each, so nice please!!!

SA told us if we want to visit their cafe, and I was still thinking if we have capacity to drink… but eventually, we gave in because, I really want to take a look at it haha.

 photo P1018718 copy_zpsq0wpm62b.jpg

It’s quite a simple yet very arty kind of setup with vibrant colours too. As mentioned the SA really very nice, they asked if we want coffee, and brew a cup for us that comes with cookies too. Did i told you, this is a complimentary? We thought, we need to pay for the coffee! haha. And, they even took polaroid for us too. So much love from MCM seriously! I actually appreciate every single help from Korea because, personally, I really think they are really nice and helpful in general.

Yoo Jaesuk’s Recommends – 골목냉면

[Travel in 2016 October 2016]

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 :)
