[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.
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 :)
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 never knew I will have love for pasta until my friends are totally in love with pasta. Nevertheless, this grown interest in me. I start to love pasta and always looking for the best pasta in town. During my stay in Korea, I’m sure korean food will never disappoint me, but how about pasta? I’m very sure not many people will have the thought of having other cuisine in Korea especially they already have so much different style/kind of korean food for us to explore. BUT, how can I missed having pasta in Korea right?
This cafe i am going to share is not just a normal cafe that serve paste… yet something unique about here.
The interior look very difference to those I visited in SG. There’s live band at night too, and our reason of why going in afternoon………
we ordered a lunch set that include salad and the two dishes we wanted – pizza and pasta!
And tadah~ one of the lead : Strawberry Pizza :)
Many people who came here, is for this special dish, and it’s often sold out by dinner.
Not too difficult to know why we were here for lunch instead of dinner right?
It’s a sweet dessert, instead of normal pizza, something out of the box that we usually have.
the thin crust is perfect.
and, YES, this is the pasta that we wanted to try too! Steamboat Pasta, omg!
It’s really good, and we all wished we had came here again for the 2nd time but we didn’t…
I have no idea, 39 days really not enough? :p

I have seen some blogs that mentioned Banjudam have converted into a pretty cozy cafe. I have yet visit the cafe, but it is still at the same location. I’m unsure if this was still manageable by the family but do let me know if you visited :)
[UPDATED ON 18 JUNE 2014]
Banjudam is CLOSED (according to tweets from SS501’s fans)
[UPDATED ON 15 AUGUST 2013]
During my August Seoul Trip (Yes, I went again…), I visited Banjudam again for their food. I will blogged again in separate entry, but I would like to highlight here in this entry that, Banjudam is no longer open for business during Lunch Hours. They are only opened at night from 6pm-12midnight :) Night ambience are great and Im sure you will love this place with such romantic ambience. :D
(Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday, 6pm – 12midnight)
Yes, this is Park Jung Min’s Mom restaurant, and we managed to go there during our last few days of the trip… so glad that we visited here without any hesitation! BECAUSE OF THE YUMMY FOOD haha! Teeheehee~~ Oh yes, JM’s sister and mom say that we were able to share this restaurant to our friends and bring them here to eat and play with the dogs heehee, and sister mentioned that we must take great and beautiful photos… she is so cute!
Personally, I feel, even a non-fan who wish for a great meal should visit here. They served great pasta at a reasonable price. Then again, fans shouldn’t swarmed around the area just to wait for PJM, the food there is worth the visit. I’m sure you know what I mean after visiting ^^ It’s also show respect to his mom and sister by give them more space as much as possible, they are not just a celebrity’s family members… They are Restaurateur who make great delicious food for you.
We went around lunch time to have our brunch there, and its already beautiful in the interior and exterior. I heard, the night view was great too. Maybe I shall visit it again the next time for dinner…. it’s gonna be great too. (Thinking about the food – Yummy!)
#THUMB UP STARX501 – Kimchi Pasta. It’s really good, and I saw a few diners ordering this too. Everything was just good and nice for this. The taste was so great that you will probably asked for more for this dish! It’s really delicious, I will recommend everyone to try this! :)
And, we was about to leave….. PJM’s sister approached us and asked if we could wait for another 10minutes as her mom wanted to cook something for us. We were delighted and of cos, shocked that we able to try something her mom prepared just for us. *happy*
#Rice Cake Toast. It was really delicious. It has tiny bits of cinnamon too which I really love it, the taste was great.
This dish was prepared hot, and the toast came in soft, the rice cake was so chewy. It has an unforgettable after taste.
We fare goodbye to his mom and sister, telling them, we were leaving in a few days time.
Thanks for the delicious meals and the yummy Rice Cake Toast that JM mom prepared for us.
We fare goodbye with a tight hug, and share that we will be back next time. Thank you Mummy Park! :)
//// Let me now show you, the 3 kids…. 점례 is the big sister with her little sister and brother :)
Now I’m sure you can’t wait to know how you can get to this place right? It’s a heartwarming restaurant with dogs and really delicious food! I have seek permission if I could post this entry, and was given a Green Light from JM’s sister and she really happy that we could share this with many many friends, hehe, so I’m blogging this with direction too! :DDDD
It’s a MUST-VISIT for me the next trip! I’m missing the ‘kids’ so much now….
