Well since this site still gets some substantial traffic I’d like to advertise my photography! I have recently put up a brand new photography blog and portfolio at dustincolephotography.com. What do you think of my new logo and site?! Thanks!!
Hello everyone, I’ve recently partnered with Dan Gray at seouleats.com so I will be posting there from now on. Thank you for reading and I hope you’ll follow my Seoul food adventures over there.
Quant, friendly, and warm are all adjectives I thought I’d never use to describe anything in Itaewon. But lo and behold, miracles do happen. May Bell Bakery is a small local bakery pulled out of some romantic European movie. All romantic scenes are somewhere in Europe right? There’s not much to say about this place [...]
That’s my life these days. Except for the mandatory soju flooded nights out with the classmates, it’s been coffee and studying, coffee and studying. You get it. But luckily I found the perfect spot right next to my house to get my coffee and study fix. The 1st Penguin. I think they’re in love with [...]
The place has the perfect blend of classy and casual. The brick walls, wooden floors, and spazzy design scheme show that there were definitely some professionals involved in creating this place.

My sincere apologies for not updating in while. I tend to go through cycles where I’ll update a lot, and then take breaks. That’s just a habit of mine with a lot of things actually. However, this time I have a pretty good excuse. For two weeks I had to cover for a co-worker and [...]

Well a buddy and I took a walk back there this Saturday and found ourselves in Sam Ryan’s, an American style sports pub. While Sam Ryan’s may boast an early 90s styled website, their decor was modern [...]
Imagine skeletons putting on skin and expensive clothes, and strutting like they’re in a fashion show. That’s what I feel like I’m seeing every time I’m around GaloSooGeel (가로수길), the fashion street that Coffee Smith is on. Fortunately, the skeletons pretending to be people is the only (a small one at that) negative aspect about [...]
My third nengmyun review… this can only mean one thing… it’s bloody hot. It’s bloody hot, and I love my nengmyun. Here’s another to add to the list of awesome nengmyun places. According to my girlfriend, this restaurant chain was the original nengmyun house to offer meat (갈비) along with nengmyun, a welcome change that’s [...]
