The Baker’s Table in Gyeongridan (Noksapyeong Station) – Great Bread, Huge Schnitzel and German Pastries. PROST!

We weren’t suppose to go to The Baker’s Table. CY and I originally were going to try out the new Romanian restaurant in HBC called Dracula’s Lounge but it was closed for lunch, so we decided to head to The Baker’s Table across the bridge in Gyeongridan. As it turns out, as I was digging […]

Brioche Doree – Paul’s Replacement in Yeouido is Tres Bien!

Today is the first week of spring, and traditionally Jill and I head down to Yeouido to check out the cherry blossoms in Yeouido Park. Well, we didn’t get to see too many blossoms, but we did have an excellent brunch at Brioche Doree at the Marriott in Yeouido! This is where Paul’s used to […]

Suji’s Deli in Itaewon – The Old Guard in an Ever-changing Culinary Scene

It’s been awhile since my last review. The demands of work, fatherhood and being a husband have consumed my time like the flickering flame of a candle consumes a moth. However, now that Logan is in daycare a couple of times a week, I should be able to get out and explore this great city. […]

The original food/pub crawl started at 12:00pm and […]

The Flying Pan Blue – The Chefs Who Need to Head Back to Culinary School.

Hello gentle reader, it’s been awhile since my last post. Pending fatherhood, crunch time at graduate school and working full time has left me little time for blogging. However, this Saturday, I finally got some free time to pursue some great eats and explore some sites in Seoul. After a presentation and my wife’s massage, […]

Gimmie Some Sugar – Honey Bowl in Hongdae

The American brunch is a part of Americana that can rarely be duplicated overseas. It’s not quite breakfast, it’s not quite lunch, but you get a piece of cantaloupe at the end. It’s a good meal! Ahh Jacques. Simpsons fans please line up. Inspired by the loveliest and most social blogger on the Internet, Lacrymamosa, […]

Tartine versus Ben’s Cookies – The Battle for Itaewon Dessert Supremacy

Seoul’s sweet tooth has evolved over the years. In the past, dessert was not considered a quintessential part of the Korean culinary scene, but as the time marches on, and the Western cultures continues to pick away at the iceberg of xenophobia, so that the “hermit kingdom” is slowly coming out of its shell. Talking […]
