Manimal Mayhem – The Battle for Southern BBQ Supremacy Just Got A Little More Interesting

It’s a great Friday afternoon and I hope you are out there enjoy some nice weather, and after this post, hopefully a little southern BBQ as well. Manimal is the new kid on the block in the southern BBQ wars, which for now, has been complete domination by Linus BBQ. Well, now there is a little […]

Linus BBQ – Great BBQ in the Bowels of Itaewon

Well not really the bowels, but it’s not on the main strip either. Hello gentle reader, after a serious bout of the flu and a virus to my Macbook, I am finally back with an entry. My life is so busy, but never too busy for some tender, juicy meat covered in BBQ sauce. This […]

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. BBQ season outside in Korea has officially begun. Let my heart be ready for the next six months of arduous labor. It was a nice night, […]

Craftworks – The King of Craft Beer in Seoul and the Food’s Not that Half Bad Now Either.

Reviewing Craftworks Taphouse and Bistro is tricky because I’ve been there countless times over the course of my time here in Seoul, and like any relationship it has had its ups and downs.

연탄 불구이 (Briquette Bulguyi) – Great Value BBQ Across from Induk University (Wolgye Line 1)

The restaurant doesn’t stand out, unless you look close and notice the coal charred briquettes that are alined along the […]

JR’s Southern Style BBQ in Itaewon Revisited… What the Hell Happened?

Sigh… There is nothing worse than having a great culinary experience and then recommending it to a friend, only to have it blow up in your face. Last night (Saturday October 12th, 2013), was my friend’s 32nd birthday party (Happy birthday JP!) and during the week at work, I kept recommending them to head to […]

Sanbong Grill (산봉화로구이) – Thin Strips of Beef Goodness Tucked Away in Hyehwa

As you exit from Hyehwa station, you are immediately confronted with the loud, screaming face of Americana. McDonalds, TGIFridays, Bennigans and Mr.Pizza, are there to greet you, smiling a vicious, over-priced and underwhelming food quality smile. However, much like Korea itself, appearances are only skin deep. The deeper you peel the layers off of Hyehwa, […]
