Namu (나무) Kids Cafe in Hagye: Fun for the Younger Kids

It’s cold outside.. Like really cold. So what does that mean? Kids Cafes.. sigh.. Lots and lots of kids cafes. However, on the bright side, you can let your kids burn off some steam in a warm, cozy and safe environment. Namu (which means “tree” in Korean) is a great little kids cafe near Hagye […]

Tayo Kid Cafe – For the Younger Crowd

Hi There! Mrs. DvsLP here! Now that we have two kids, it means that we’re basically covering man-on-man defense.

양꼬치 (Yangkkochi) – Lamb Skewers and Chinese Beer at Nowon Station

I’m not sure, but I think 양꼬치 (Yangkkochi) is a play on words for 양고기 (Yang gogi) which means lamb in Korean. Either way, Jill and I were tired after a long week of taking care of a sick little man and decided to get out of the house for a bit to relax with some lazy […]
