Yeouido Park in the Spring – Cherry Blossoms and Serenity in the Heart of the FInancial District

Yeouido Park. Once an airstrip in the middle of the city, it was transformed into the iconic park back in 1999. Now Yeouido Park is famous for their cherry blossom festival in the center of the city during the month of April. It is not uncommon to see businessmen in Armani shooting hoops during lunch, […]

하남 돼지집 in Nowon – Excellent Samgyeopsal (삼겹살) in a Lively Environment

It’s beginning. The nights are getting warmer, and the BBQ joints in Korea are opening their windows to let the savory smells of melting pork fill the night air.

Suji’s Deli in Itaewon – The Old Guard in an Ever-changing Culinary Scene

It’s been awhile since my last review. The demands of work, fatherhood and being a husband have consumed my time like the flickering flame of a candle consumes a moth. However, now that Logan is in daycare a couple of times a week, I should be able to get out and explore this great city. […]
