Seokparang (Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea)

South Koreans are extremely proud of their heritage and their history; many of the biggest tourist attractions are the beautiful palaces, shrines, and temples through the country.  A large part of Korean history is based on the Korean Royalty, with the last king ruling until 1910.  So even though we know King’s eat well, it…

Passion Street (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

One of the best parts of living in a big city and particularly Seoul is the close proximity of food options. Living at The Prime Apartments has definitely been super convenient. We are in a relatively “quieter” part of Seoul, are close to 3 subways: Namyeong, Sookmyung University, and Samgakji and have a lot of…

Da Chae ( Dongbinggo-dong, Seoul, South Korea)

If you are exploring Korean food and want to try something really delicious, you need to try Bulgogi. Bulgogi meat is a lot like the thinly sliced meat you would find in a Philly Cheesesteak, but instead of topped with cheese wiz, it’s marinated in a very light sweet sauce. You definitely have to try…

Weird foods – Corn on the Cob Ice Cream

Asia is known for delicious noms, many showcasing new and innovative flavors, but I’m not sure that corn ice cream should be one of them. Watch as I give this corn on the cob ice cream a try in Seoul, South Korea. What will they think of next?!

Nekkid Wings (Seoul, South Korea)

The typical wing night or wing joint that we are super used to at home is not a common thing in Seoul. Wings in Korea are usually small and pricey, and if you happen to find someone serving Buffalo style wings, the sauce is usually not very good. So it was exciting to hear that…

Itaewon the Burger (Itaewon, Seoul, South Korea)

Right on the Itaewon the Burger sign they state they are the “Best Burger in Town,” so Scott and I thought we’d pop in to see if it was true! Surprisingly, the restaurant has been open for about a year, but honestly there are so many restaurants in Itaewon, I feel like I don’t have…

Goobok Mandu (구복만두) (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

This restaurant has become quite popular after receiving a “Bib Gourmand” from Michelin. The Bib Gourmand designation is given to restaurants who provide quality food at an affordable price and their plaque hangs proudly on their wall. The restaurant solely sells dumpling and in a city that doesn’t really do Chinese food (sorry…but Korean Chinese…

Linus’ BBQ and Chicken (Seoul, South Korea)

For most of us here in Seoul, there is no short supply of BBQ….I mean Korean BBQ restaurants are on every corner. But if we’re talking tasty American BBQ that’s a totally different story.  Luckily Linus’ Bama Style Barbecue offers delicious Bama style BBQ to fill our hungry tummies and now there’s a second location…

Sid Burger (Seoul, South Korea)

Sid Burger is located in the Over the Dish food court near City Hall (Only 2 stops from our house!).  They offer a good selection of burger types and you can get a full size burger or 2 sliders that comes with a side of fries.

Sticky Ricky’s (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

I’ve got a new sweetie and his name is Sticky Ricky. On the other side of Sookmyung University Station, Sticky Ricky has been serving homemade ice cream for about 4 months.  The ice cream is made in a traditional American style and offers some creative flavors that are super creamy, sticky and delicious! Since it’s…

Samgak Pizza (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

Next up on our list of places to eat on “Passion Street” or “Passion Island” is Samgak Pizza.   As the sign in their window states, “pizza is the best triangle in the world,” and having a place downstairs from our house is awesome for those non-cooking nights! Samgak Pizza (삼각핏자) 43-23, Wonhyoro 1(iI)-ga, Yongsan-gu,…

Dall Pasta (Namyeong, Seoul, South Korea)

Recently a string of new establishments has been popping up near our house.  This area is known as  “Passion Street” or “Passion Island.”  As the new places come up, we have been slowly but surely checking them out one by one.  Surprisingly, some of them are quite good!  So over the next few weeks, I…
