2018 Winter Olympics (Pyeongchang, South Korea)

Winter is coming, oh wait just kidding! Winter is here and once every 4 years we get to experience something really exciting during winter! No not leap year, the Winter Olympics! Today marks 1 week since the Olympics started here in Pyeongchang, South Korea, so I wanted to share our trip to the 2018 Winter…

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…

Seoul Nights Time Lapse

A friend of mine recently introduced me to time lapses on the GoPro and showed me what fun it is!  Scott and I decided to try a time lapse from outside our window at The Prime Apartments near Namyeong Station in Seoul, South Korea.  The end result came out quite nice; definitely looking forward to…

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…

Tempur Cinema (Seoul, South Korea)

The CGV Movie theater at iPark Mall at Yongsan Station recently underwent a full renovation.  I was surprised as I thought the existing theaters were already pretty state of the art, but apparently I had no idea what they had in store for us! With these renovations, they added a ton of new theaters featuring…

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…

13 quirky things about Korea

We have been living in Korea for over 2.5 years now and my friends and family back home are always asking us to share our experiences living here.  Throughout our time here we have definitely noticed little things that we find very interesting and/or amusing and very different from back home.  Originally I was planning…

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…
