Butterfinger at Apgujeong Rodeo – Best of the Brunch

I refuse to incorporate a tagline in my title which included a slogan from a popular candy bar that has a famous, yellow-skinned, animated family in their commercials. Instead a play on words seemed appropriate. Butterfinger! Finally, after three years, Jill and I made it down to Apgujeong Rodeo on the rarely used and far […]

Slow Garden at Hansung University Station – An Underwhelming Brunch Experience

Mad For Garlic in Jamsil – Dracula’s Worst Nightmare

Mad For Garlic is restaurant that I read about when I first arrived in Korea. It was profiled in the first Lonely Planet that I bought before coming to Korea 4 years ago. It has always been a great place for some excellent Italian food, and a wide selection of wine. Jill and I decided […]

Rye Post Gourmet Sandwiches in Itaewon – Sandwich of Champions

If there is one qualm I have with Seoul is that it can be very difficult to find  a good sandwich, which is ironic because this country seems to have an over saturation of cafes, sandwich and coffee shops. Unfortunately, most of these establishments’ idea of a sandwich is an uninspiring, artificial, spongy atrocity, and […]
