Slice Of Life: Pizza

Spice, comfort and flavour.

I had been hearing a lot, and I mean a LOT, of buzz about Slice of Life Pizza, so I decided it was high time I paid it a visit. Opened in late 2015 by Kim Chanu, a native Korean who had been living in New York. The aim of the restaurant is to serve authentic, NY style pizza, paired with a craft beer menu. Being a big fan of pizza, and craft beer, I was looking forward to this one.


Mad For Garlic: Haeundae

 

I have recently found myself dining at the Haeundae Branch of the Italian restaurant chain Mad For Garlic. Twice! Mad For Garlic is a South Korean ‘Italian Wine Bistro’, which has 39 branches in Korea alone. They specialize in dishes based around, can you guess….. Garlic!

The first visit was at the request of my fiancé, and the second as we had an excellent discount coupon available to us from the restaurant’s membership club. A quick note on that. It is well worth joining, as the discounts they offer are substansial. On this occasion we cashed one in which allowed us to choose a free steak from the menu.  As Mad For Garlic can be on the pricey side, it’s a welcome bonus. To join you have to register online, best to get a Korean speaking friend to help you if possible.


Korean Convenience Store Food! GS25 Spaghetti & Meatballs

Some Korean interpretations on international foods are perfectly fine, especially in recent years. The number of burger joints is increasing, and with it, the quality. In this part of the peninsula (in Gimhae, a short lightrail journey back in Busan, the second largest city in South Korea), I can be sitting in front of a hot, delicious plate of fish & chips in about an hour.


Italian Students Speak

As a full time teacher of English as a Second Language I come across many ways in which to encourage learners to activate their acquired language. During this summer (2013) I was teaching teenaged Italian students in Ireland, and I found that more so that my past experiences, my students were very active online. I thought of ways in which I could get them to use this interest in a lesson.


The Koreans of Europe

No two cultures are the same but every one is similar, right? You could certainly say that about much of Europe, where thousands of years of breeding, trading, warring, traveling, and sharing across ever-shifting borders has caused a mixology of international characteristics of which one can be difficult to discern from the other.

In Asia, it is a little more difficult to separate the differences because the continent has suffered less fluctuation of its borders, and in terms of today’s map, colonialism for the most part decided on today’s borders. But still you can throw in the changes, regardless of actual influence, of international trade, development, colonialism, the sharing of ideas, television, and migration, and the wind at the weekend if you wish, and you will soon realise the stark similarities between peoples and cultures there.

Meet Me At Bongs- "Coffee, Brunch, BBQ"




 I was informed of a "All day breakfast" restaurant in Yuseong by owner Brian Kim of House Grill.

I arrived at the restaurant "Meet Me At Bongs" on a Saturday morning with my wife. My  impression of the outside gave me the feeling of quality. Observing sleek granite floors and modern furniture on my entry fortified my initial feeling of potential "Breakfast madness".
