Registration for September 6th Meeting Open!!

It’s amazing what can turn up when trawling Naver for new makgeolli places to try.  We stumbled apon this small (very small) but very white little makgeolli bar in Sindorim that seems to be serving up some interesting gems.  On the menu we spy a Meshil Wonju, as well as a host of the usual favorites including non-aspartame staples.

Registration for August 16th Meeting Open!!

The location for this meeting has been on the books for over a year!!  We tried to visit last year but it was unexpectedly closed and we just haven’t tried since.  Helen’s Kitchen has a very good reputation for its makgeolli, food and atmosphere and it’s located not far from Coex near Samsung Station.  From what we have heard, Helen spent her early years in growing up in the US and after working for a multinational company decided to open a makgeolli bar.


July 5th Meeting Registration OPEN!!!

 

Time flies when you’re drinking makgeolli, and it’s already time for our next meeting! This meeting will be a little different from our regular meetings, as the location is quite small and features a round bar.  It’s a very intimate location and we could potentially be the only customers at the time, so we will be keeping numbers strictly small for this road test.


ZenKimchi Foodcast – Makgeolli, Korea’s Fizzy Brew

 

We are still playing catch-up here at MMPK headquarters, with a lot of new and exciting things in production.  A while back in May, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Joe McPherson, of ZenKimchi fame, for an episode of his Foodcast.  Of course the topic of the conversation was our beloved makgeolli, and despite chewing each other’s ears off for a good 40 minutes or so, I’m sure we could have gone on for much longer!  Every time I get chatting about makgeolli, Korean traditional liquor and the future of the industry, I realise just how much there is to know and how much more we have to learn.
