Edit: In March 2016, Joe McPherson was no longer associated with McPherson’s Pub. Please note that this review may not reflect the current menu at McPherson’s.  So on Thursday, I was lucky enough to be invited to a soft opening of McPherson’s Pub in Mokdong, just outside of Omokgyo station. For those who don’t know, […]

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 […]

The Rib Shack in Gyeongridan – Like a Poodle Versus a Rotweiler in a Dog Fight.

Well it’s 4am and my mind is racing with a thousand ideas on a thousand lists with a million words. So, I might as well blog something. I’ve seen Rib Shack on my travels to Gyeongridan a few times, but anytime I’ve been down there, it’s been closed. I decided to make my way down […]

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 […]

Tuesday Night in Itaewon = Wing Night at Rocky Mountain Tavern

I’ve never been a fan of Tuesdays. Tuesday is like the sneaky, younger brother of Monday who reminds you that you still have over three more work days left until the weekend. I find normally that you can psych yourself up for Monday, but Tuesday gets on its stomach, crawls up to you and punches you in […]

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 […]

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. It was love at first bite, then we hit a rocky patch, and now, after a roller coaster ride of a relationship, […]
