Ring the Alarms! Firebell in Gangnam is Smoking!

Hope the summer is treating you well! My family has left me by myself for a few weeks and heading back to the land of red, white and blue, so that means a little more free time to write and explore the Korea. Last week, I finally decided to go head down south of the […]

Julio – Quick and Delicious Mexican in Gangnam

I’ve been anxious to try Julio for quite some time now. Julio is popular among expats and was visited by one of my favorite bloggers Annie last year in Hongdae.

Brick Oven New York Pizzeria – Serving up New York Style-Pizzas in Gangnam

Did you ever have that local pizza joint in your town that were owned by Italians. They all looked the same. The red and white checker tablecloths on simple wooden chairs and tables.
