Korean BBQ

Korean BBQ – we’re doing it wrong!


Missing comforts of home in Korea

 

Here's another one I've already read about in a ton of blogs: around the 3 month mark of your time in Korea you'll really start missing the comforts of home.  It's my own fault.  I should have sent myself a care package.  I should have learned more Korean.  I should have brought a friend or boyfriend with me.  I should suck it up and deal with it.  This one gets a little sappy - be forewarned that I'm not actually upset just went down a rabbit hole of memories.  I'm missing the comforts of home.


It just keeps getting better!


Sampling Seoul: A Night Dining Tour with O'ngo Food Communications

Korean cuisine, much like the country's people, is vibrant, flavorful, eclectic and packs a lot of punch. It's so diverse that it would take years to try each banchan (side dish), variety of kimchi (there's over 200!) and regional and seasonal specialty. Fortunately for gastronomes eager to sample Korea's tastiest cuisine in a limited amount of time, O'ngo Food Communications offers a number of food tours that take all the guesswork out of the search for the country's best restaurants.

The Colors of Korea: Orange

Over the past month, a number of Korea bloggers have come together to participate in The Colors of Korea, a unique blogging project that aims to share with the world the beauty of South Korea's food, culture, and destinations.  Each participant of the project has been assigned a different color and will write a post to illustrate various aspects of Korea that represent his or her chosen color.  The posts will be published throughout this upcoming week and once all participants have contributed, a complete compilation will be released, cataloged specifically for your viewing pleasure.

Orange may not be the first color that comes to mind when thinking of Korea.  In fact, the more obvious icons that represent the nation exclude orange all together.  It isn't until one looks beyond the surface that the color's significance in the country's culture and history becomes apparent.

It’s your party, but please learn to hike first.

With about 70% of the Korean peninsula covered with mountains, the hiking culture dominates the the Land of Kimchi. I went for a short hike up Mt. Dobongsan near my home a few weeks ago. I have a ways to go if I want to start calling myself a “hiker”, but here are my thoughts thus far…

Hiking in Korea is reminiscent of attending an epic college party.

It is imperative that you…

pre-game. (Who wants some morning makgeolli?)


My October in 2 Minutes

 


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".

Hanwoori Smoked Meat Restaurant


Hanwoori is by far the best smoked meat restaurant in Daejeon. There are 2 branches as far as I know; one in Songchon-dong and the one pictured here in Wolpyoung-dong just down the street from Stargate CGV cinemas and before Wizen Haus Brewery.

You have your choice of smoked duck, samgyupsal, and ribs. The ribs are 27,000 a rack, which is a bit pricey, but Whoa! Worth it!
