Ring the Alarms! Firebell in Gangnam is Smoking!

Hope the summer is treating you well! My family has left me by myself for a few weeks and heading back to the land of red, white and blue, so that means a little more free time to write and explore the Korea. Last week, I finally decided to go head down south of the […]

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 […]

Milkcow in Gangnam – Cold Ice Cream. Colder Service.

Julio – Quick and Delicious Mexican in Gangnam

Did you ever have that local pizza joint in your town that were owned by Italians. They all looked the same. The red and white checker tablecloths on simple wooden chairs and tables. Maybe there would be an arcade or pinball machine stuffed away in the corner collecting dust. However, the smells from the kitchen […]

The Aquarium at COEX – Here Fishy Fishy Fishy…

Now that COEX is basically an abandoned except for the aquarium and the movie theatre, it is an easy trip with an infant. We avoided the normal sea of shoppers, and saw some exotic fish and wildlife from around the globe.  How to get there: By subway head to Samseong Station (Line 2) and depart from […]

Good Mexican in Gangnam? Taco Chili Chili versus Grill5Taco

First, I would like to thank my wife (who’s six months pregnant) for walking around Gangnam for about 20 minutes looking for Grill5Taco in the unforgiving Seoul humidity. Another rainy Sunday in the sultry summer of Seoul and there really isn’t much to do, besides stay in and eat or go shopping. I was in […]
