It just keeps getting better!


Zen Kimchi’s Ultimate Korean BBQ Experience


Our 4th Chuseok in Korea, Part 1 – Seoul

Growing up, Thanksgiving was always my favorite holiday. There is no pressure about gifts, the family is way less stressed, and it is all about gratitude, family, and good food. My kind of holiday. The day really embodies Fall, with it’s smells and sweaters, colors, and football (or nap time for me).

In Korea, Chuseok is compared to Thanksgiving because it is also a harvest festival (minus the genocide and kum ba yah stories of sharing some turkey), but it is as big as Christmas is in the States. Being that it’s one of the two biggest holidays in Korea, we usually get 4 or 5 days off! Hooray!

We also got some pretty great Chuseok gifts this year, and if you’re interested in seeing what kind of quirky things we got check out the video!

Our Weekend: Pig Neck and Paddy's day

This weekend was mostly spent saying goodbye to George as she left Korea to return back to England. I finally donned my skates after a year and practiced with the ROKD giels, and we celebrated St Patrick's day by watching the rugby game.

1, 2, Cha, Cha, Cha: The Rounds of Korean Nightlife

It's no secret that Koreans are some of the hardest workers in the world.  From a young age, one spends his or her school days buried in books, memorizing endless pages of material, and hopping from math to English to art academy.  There's very little time for play, or childhood even.  Things don't change much by the time one reaches the workplace.  Of the cities across the globe, those working in Seoul put in the most working hours per week on average. Efficiency has nothing to do with it, but because of their propensity to work hard, they find it necessary to play hard, too.  And very few can play as hard as Koreans do.

Korean BBQ – Samgyeopsal 삼겹살

A big part of Korean food is Korean BBQ~ if someone abroad says they love Korean food, chances are they are talking about BBQ.  In Korea BBQ is cooked yourself at a table grill, usually with gas or charcoal in a variety of grill and pan styles. Meat can be marinated or cooked as-is~  what I will write about in this article is generally for un-marinated meats here, pork in particular!

♥ Lets talk about cooking un-marinated pork meat at a Korean BBQ restaurant!


Busan Food Journal, Part Three


Korean Ramen

Dumplings, soju, grilled ribs, stews, chicken and lots of kimchi were on the table this week. We’re starting to get the hang of Korean food, and discovering what we love, and some things we don’t. Last week, we concentrated on restaurants around our neighborhood, Suyeong and Gwangalli Beach, but these dishes can be found on just about every corner of Busan.


Dear Korea #034

Dear Korea #034

Whoo~ This one took me a while to do. Anyways, it seems like everyone who enjoys chowing down on Korean BBQ from time to time has a favorite place that they consider to be the best. As a result, I’ve been introduced to all sorts of awesome restaurants that were pretty similar to each other. I guess it’s natural for the “best” to be different for everyone, seeing how everyone has different tastes.


Yukgogan BBQ, Hwamyeong

Hidden away in Hwamyeong-dong is one of the best value BBQ joints around. At only $10p/p for all-you-can-eat meat, Yukgogan is the perfect solution to all your meat eating needs.


And as you can see to the left here, Yukgogan provides over 20 varieties of meatables, including seafood. That's not just galbi, but marinated galbi, sausages, shrimp, even whole baby octopus.
There's also a solid selection of sides, soups and salads for you to ignore while filling up your plate with meat.
