[food] Conversation (and desserts galore)

I hate to be one of those gushy people, but #sorryimnotsorry I’m going to say it anyway. I think one of the reasons that the man and I get along so well is because we like the same things. We both drink coffee like it’s water, we enjoy watching movies, we’re in love with dogs……

[food] Tasting Room

About two years ago, I had a group of girlfriends that would meet up every now and then to brunch together – and one weekend we ventured out to Hangangjin to go to “Tasting Room,” an Italian bistro well known for their flat breads and hot pans (stews of many kinds that come out in…

[food] Baker’s Table

My idea of the perfect breakfast is bread and coffee. That’s it. Now when I say perfect breakfast, I mean the type of breakfast that I would eat if I didn’t care about the health ramifications and the stomach protruding. But this is a blog post, not a health review. Read on. I have a…

[food] Normal by Ryunique

For a taste of Ryunique, head to Normal – a bistro located in Sinsa-dong that’s anything but normal. Beautifully crafted dishes that are carefully thought out.

[food] Pick-a-Bagel

I’m not on facebook much anymore, but whenever I do check my feed, it seems like my friend Elaine is at this bagel joint. Now, I love me a bagel but I’m never one to rave about a bagel and cream cheese on social media. So being the lovely friend I am, I made fun…

[food] The Beastro

When you live in Gangnam, it’s hard to ever venture out of the neighborhoods located South of the river. It’s organized, it’s familiar, and it’s close to home. But I think sometimes you have those days where you feel the need to venture out of your comfort zone. So last week, the man and I…

[life] A night for myself

I’m a workaholic by nature and there seems to always be something scheduled in my calendar. Work has been crazy lately with deadlines and translations galore, and weekends don’t seem much easier… but from my experience, I know that if I keep this up for too long – I’ll burn out like a fire pit….

[food] Bas Burger (by Bastille)

If you haven’t gathered yet that I love sweets… I don’t know where you’ve been (but hi, by the way). But I do. One of my favorite ice cream places in Apgujeong Garosugil was Bastille before they moved. Their ice cream with dried ice on the bottom always made me think that what I was…

[recipe] Cake for the Bride

Two of my good friends are getting married to each other this month – and what a beautiful month to get married. We threw her a bridal shower in April, and although it was a DIY affair, it turned out beautifully because a) we all had the same vision for the shower and b) the bridesmaids…

[food] Shaved Ice in Honolulu

Everyone knows that I have a soft spot in my heart for ice cream. There’s just something about having a cold ice cream on a hot summer day. It’s supported me through many a tough time, and to be honest if someone asked me what food I could never give up – it would be…

[food] Brooklyn the Burger Joint

So my relationship with meat is… complicated. I used to be vegetarian, then I went vegan, then I went raw for a while… it’s not even much of an ethical issue – for me, I just feel better when I go with veggies. I’ve never been a huge fan of meat. But every now and…

[food] Dean and Deluca

One of my favorite places to go when I’m looking for a quick bite to eat is Dean & Deluca, located in the food court of Shinsegae Department Store at the Express Bus Terminal… now, this location isn’t necessarily the best for all you foodies out there. Fast food is the food of choice as…
