[eat] 1.2kg of beef at Dally So @ Hongdae, Seoul. Need I say more?

It has been a what-the-fuck month for me, thus explains my M.I.A. Nowadays I mostly stay put in my cozy room & ponder over life & death, while eating cheap gross food because I honestly stop giving a fuck about my once passion in life, eating good food. When I stop giving a fuck about food, it means I am in a serious shitstorm.

Anyhow, things have been picking up, slowly but steadily recently. And I attribute such progress with my thrilling experience with 1.2kg of beef last week. Ugh. So good. To be fair, I have eaten out a bit past month, but it’s mainly uninspiring chicken & pork & one or two visits to plain cafes (none worth writing about), only Dally So in Hongdae, however, can give me enough incentives to actually sit down & rave about it.

[cafe] Afternoon tea at Bloom and Goûté Café @ Garosugil, Apgujeong

Sunday means nice brunch and long conversation over a cup of tea/coffee/anything you want really. Sunday also means spending a little more frivolously and indulging ourselves some extra sweet we’ve been craving all week. In short Sunday is a perfect day for afternoon tea. That said, never in my two years of living in Korea had I actively searched for a place serving high tea (the last time I read a high tea review in Seoul was at least 6 months ago) nor bumped into a cafe that actually offers the service. That is, until last week when I stumbled upon Bloom and Goûté – a pretty flower cafe that looked too good on the outside to pass by.

[eat] Gastronomic bliss at Wolfhound @ Itaewon, Seoul

I’ve just realised it’s been more than three weeks since I last updated. I’d blame life, if everyone didn’t already know my severe lack of consistency on anything that requires more than 15 minutes of concentration. That’s not the point however. The point is, right now as I’m wrapped up in piles of blankets like a giant burrito and binge watching Skins, all I want is some nice comfort food followed by maybe 2 tubes of ice cream and a good night sleep. Luckily my partner who’s now at Wolfhound chilling has promised to bring home just what I want. So until I get my fish and chips, I could pause my weekend marathon and use some time to review Wolfhound.

[eat] Korean BBQ at 화통 (Hoatong) @ Anam, Seoul

Wow it’s been a really long time since I last wrote a food review. Even more so since I had a proper Korean BBQ meal. Feeling absolutely desperate for some nicely grilled marinated meat, last week I literally had to drag my friend to a BBQ restaurant that I’d been dying to try out for weeks.

화통 (Hoatong) is a newly opened BBQ restaurant in Anam that has quickly gained popularity due to their fantastic menu relatively different from that of other BBQ restaurants. Even if opening 화통 meant Alice’s Table (one of my favourite cafes in Anam which I almost did a write up but kept procrastinating) had to shut down, the sacrifice was worth it.

[eat] Hearty Halal fill at Foreign Restaurant @ Itaewon, Seoul

Greetings from Vietnam! I’m currently on a super short trip to Hanoi the capital of the country and the city welcomes me with nice thin drizzles and perfect chilly weather. Lunar New Year’s holiday is officially over but it seems people here are still in the vacation mood, if all those complaints I’ve heard for the past few days are anything to go by. As you may know, I’ve totally neglected the blog for the past couple of weeks for a lot of reasons (most of which are me being lazy and easily distracted so to speak). For that I’m sorry (but I can’t promise it won’t ever happen again oh boy) and I’ll try to update more regularly!

A while ago my friend and I sorta fell into a food crisis where we couldn’t either find a proper restaurant that we both liked to try out or have an appetite for anything that was economically & financially unattractive. Desperate time calls for desperate measures, we decided to go for all-you-can-eat, in hope it would somehow satisfy our very different food cravings and chose Foreign Restaurant, which is the fancy name for a restaurant that serves Halal/Indian food.

[eat] Delicious Korean feast at Gwangjang Market (광장시장) @ Jongno, Seoul

Junk/street food is probably one of the many traits about Korea that most of you Korea enthusiasts fall in love with. To say I was thrilled when my friend told me about Gwangjang market (광장 시장)  and its street food diversity was a total understatement. Well it’s not like it is the only food market in Seoul, but it surely is the market of my food. As you already know the biggest players are rice cake (떡볶이), fish cake (어뎅) and fried food (튀김). My most favourite dish however is sundae, the one dish that has manged to gross lots of foreigners out, including me if I stare at the food long and hard enough.
