I was so bummed when I found out that Pokemon Go wasn’t working in Taiwan after I downloaded it, and then even more bummed once I found out it wasn’t going to work in Korea either. However this morning, my silly sister in law downloaded and it was working! Continue reading “Pokemon Go Testing in Korea!”
I’ve been to Second Kitchen two times so far, and I must say that the food here is GOOD. We found out about this place from Dan and Barbara, and I’m very thankful because it finally got me to visit Hannam-dong, which is one of the trendy spots in Seoul.

Thankfully, the burger scene has vastly improved since I came to Korea. During the past few years, many respectable burger places such as Brooklyn Burger, Gilbert’s, and others have popped up and have saved expats like me whenever I had a craving for that oozing melted cheese on a beef patty.

One night, my friend Joe and I were walking around Gangnam looking for a cocktail bar so we could catch up. One of the infuriating things for me is how hard it is to get a good, cheap cocktail near Gangnam Station.

Junhee was craving some ramen, so I took her to my favorite ramen place in Seoul. I used to go to Ramen Moto during my lunch breaks when I worked at the startup Vingle since our office was right around the corner. It’s been a couple of years since I went here, but I sure wasn’t disappointed! Ramen Moto is a small place with a small menu. You order your food on a machine and give the receipt to the workers. I always get the Moto Ramen there (7,000W) and Junhee decided to get the Spicy Ramen (7,000W). We also got an extra side of the Chashu for 2,000W.
