Meeting 5 – Moon Jar (달빛 술담) Photo Gallery

Our Mamas & Papas headed to Moon Jar with a purpose…to try out their cocktails! It’s one of the most famous and popular places for upscale makgeolli in Seoul, so it’s safe to say we were expectant. The cocktails we tried were a little on the sweet side for most, but the quality was unmistakable.

Elephant Crashes Pool Party

Ilove the body language of the elephant in this video. He’s taking a sip and that’s how things are going to go.

 

 



My Summer Addiction


Summer time in Korea means humidity, crowds of people at the beach (mostly cowering under their umbrellas), and iced coffees at ever convenience store. 

Things I like about Korea When I’ve been Drinking

Hite and Cass have ridiculous advertisements

Either the worst ads or the best ads of all time. I can't decide.

Ahh yes. The Big Question. Some feel that Hite and Cass are interchangeable, while some are loyal to their brands (I’m a Hite guy, but i didn’t really know why). Finally, we’re going to put this question to bed: WHAT IS THE BEST BEER IN KOREA?

We got our friends together to do a blind taste-test. There were eight of us.


Gyeongju II: Hiking Namsan & Other Soul Satisfying Fare

 
 
 
Our day trip begins at a traditional restaurant that had obligingly opened early to accommodate our group of six. As soon as we settle down onto the floor mats, side dishes (called banchan, 반찬) and mountain vegetable bibimbap (sanchae bibimbap, 산채 비빔밥) mix-ins start arriving on our table. This will be our fuel during the all-day hike ensuing right after breakfast.  Today is devoted to conquering Namsan Mountain in Gyeongju.
 
 


Letter from Korea, September 2011.

Suwon, Korea
23/9/2011

Dear Ireland,

You may not know this but Koreans are known as the Irish of the east. I didn’t know this until a while after I arrived here first in 2005. Of course, when I was young and heard the main reason why I thought it was great and I looked forward to challenging this accolade to the best of my ability; could Koreans out-drink me, a then twenty-three year old post-university drifter who had ended up in Korea with the promise of earning enough money to travel around the world. The fact that I never made it past Malaysia is beyond the point.

Of course, there are more reasons why Koreans are known as the Irish of the east than the fact that both countries are famous for the amount of alcohol that is consumed by their citizenry.


It's Soju Cocktail Hour: Soju Bloody Marys

Typhoon Meari hit the Korean peninsula this Sunday morning, leaving our prospects of hitting up the beach bleak. The rain wouldn't relent, so we relented and cozied up with some fine homemade Bloody Marys from fresh summer tomatoes. Here's how you can make some of your own to ride out the storm.
