[travel] Chicago

Rest doesn’t always mean a resort. I ventured to the Windy City for my summer holiday, and was met with great food and great views.

Those who have a Chipotle-shaped hole in their hearts may be glad to find that there might be a remedy right here in Gangnam.

Reading food blogs is a dangerous thing – ironic, considering I keep a food blog – but you can’t help but to keep a personal list of must-visit places in the corner of your mind when you read reviews or drool over images of new eateries. The list has been getting longer and longer as…

[food] Pig in the Garden

For those of you that follow this blog and the Man and my food adventures, it may seem like we eat a gargantuan amount of food that most would consider to unhealthy. But the reality is, as much as we love our “bad” food choices, we also really enjoy a healthy lifestyle. What you see…

It’s finally Spring over in Seoul – but with the changing of the seasons comes those days ­when it’s a bit chillier than you would like, but alas, your winter coats have been packed away for the next year. This past weekend fit that description perfectly – while the sun was shining and the plum…

[food] La Marmite

With the busy-ness of the season and a lot going on in our lives, the man and I didn’t start making Christmas plans until just a few days before. Now, with Christmas being a couple’s holidays in Korea where couples make reservations weeks in advance – we were a bit late to the game. We…
