Hill Side Pub and Bistro in Itaewon – A Subpar Experience in the Land of Bistros

One of my followers, Tigerpendant, whom has great tastes in books and a very thoughtful outlook on life, asked if I did requests.  I’ve never actually done one, but decided to give it a try.

Coreanos in Apgujeong – Excellent Mexican Fusion in the Heart of Seoul

The Mexican scene in Seoul has come a long way since I first arrived several years ago. Restaurants such as Vatos and Don Charly have really upped the ante in terms of quality.

Bonny’s Pub in HBC – A Great Choice for Pizza and Brews

Bonny’s was supposed to the be the first stop on a craft beer tour, but as many of my tours involving the brew, it ended prematurely and without any type of coherent documentation.

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 […]
