The Market Kitchen, Four Seasons Hotel (Seoul, South Korea)

Well last week was a big day for Scott and I, well really I mean for me….it was my birthday! And no, I won’t be divulging what number birthday it was, but let’s just say I’m over 21, lol.  Scott had the great idea for us to visit one of the nice hotels in Seoul and…

Tokyo, Japan (Day 1 – Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Maricar!)

Tokyo is truly an eclectic and vibrant city.  Even though we live in Seoul which is a big city; Tokyo is a very different animal.  The city really doesn’t appear to sleep, our flight arrived late and when we arrived to our apartment, there were plenty of restaurants, bars, and clubs that were still open….

Todai – Seafood and Sushi Buffet

We don’t frequent buffets often because we generally do not feel that get our money’s worth out of it and I end up way overeating, but we had heard good things about Todai’s food and went to check it out for lunch. They have multiple locations, but we headed to the Myeongdong location (if you haven’t…
