D’Maris Buffet (Seoul, South Korea)

**Update as of 02/14/2018 – this buffet has changed to Marincanto, although I have not been since the changeover, I have heard the buffet is similar to before** So you may have read my post of our visit to Todai buffet in Myeongdong.  Well I had heard from a few friends that they found another buffet…

Kimchi JJigae in a Jiffy

I had never even heard of Kimchi Jjigae before I moved to Korea, but happened upon it a couple months after we first arrived.  Jjigae means soup/stew in Korean. After I tried it that first time, I was hooked on this delicious food. It’s got a really good flavor profile, and I love the tanginess that…

Try a Hanbok on for size!

In my last post about Seoul Global Cultural Center, I mentioned that they have centers all over Seoul and that they offer a lot of cultural experiences.  One great program that is offered is trying on a Hanbok (traditional Korea clothing), for FREE at the Myeongdong location.

Cooking like a Korean

After looking online, O’ngo Food Communications…

Visit to CJ Foodworld!

I recently decided that I want to take some Korean cooking classes while we are here in Seoul. While I was searching online for classes, I found mention of CJ Foodworld. Someone mentioned they had taken classes there, but I wasn’t able to locate any information in english online, so when I was walking to…
