Brick Oven New York Pizzeria – Serving up New York Style-Pizzas 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.

Mad For Garlic in Jamsil – Dracula’s Worst Nightmare

Mad For Garlic is restaurant that I read about when I first arrived in Korea. It was profiled in the first Lonely Planet that I bought before coming to Korea 4 years ago. It has always been a great place for some excellent Italian food, and a wide selection of wine. Jill and I decided […]
