Darak Maeul (다락마을) offers “foreigner” or Koreanized-Italian food in a couple-friendly atmosphere. Pretty similar to Seoga & Cook, in my opinion.

In Korean, darak means “attic” and maeul means “village.” I have no idea what an “attic village” is or how that’s related to this restaurant.

Bim Bom (빙봉) advertises itself as an “organic egg brunch” and is in Itaewon, Seoul. It’s the fanciest breakfast I’ve had in Korea. We waited outside for 20 minutes on a Sunday afternoon, but a great crepe for 16,000₩ seemed worth it. Don’t forget to pierce the yolk and spread it around on top of your crepe before rolling it up and cutting it into bitesize slices.

Address: 261-6, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, Korea

Directions: This place is not very close to a subway station. Nearest subway station is Hannam on Jungang or central line. We trekked up some monstrous hills from Itaewon.

One of my favorite foods to eat out in Korea is shabu shabu (샤브샤브). It’s delicious, fun to eat, and even fun to say! My two favorite chain restaurants that serve this are Shabu Maxim and Coco Shabu. I would eat it all the time if it didn’t cost $20-25 a person. It’s similar to Chinese or Japanese hot pot, but has its unique differences. 

Depending on what you order, it’s vegetables, noodles, seafood, and/or meat you boil yourself in an individual or communal hot pot. My favorite part is making salad rolls and then using all the dipping sauces.

Nano Galmaegi (나노갈매기) starts at 17,000₩ for 450g of pork (갈매기살) but the unlimited steamed egg (계란찜, gyeran jjim) makes me so happy. The garlic marinated pork is the best here.


Of 14ths and Chocolate

 

How Koreans (and Japanese) celebrate Hearts Day aka Valentine’s Day is quite different from how the Philippines and many parts of the world do. In Korea, it’s the best day for the ladies to “confess their affection” through giving chocolates or small tokens to the guys they admire. The guys then, reciprocate that affection after a month, which they call White Day (March 14th).
