I was introduced to this restaurant a while back, but I hesitated reviewing it for the site, as it’s already quite busy, and I didn’t want everyone rushing out to try it, making it impossible for me to get a seat. But I’ve decided to not be so selfish, and to let you all in [...] moreCheong Hae Wool
Ssambap is one of my favourite Korean meals: there’s nothing I love more than a table full of little side dishes — meat, fish, vegetables, soup — to accompany a bowl of fragrant rice. This restaurant (which unfortunately doesn’t have an English name) doesn’t look like it’s been in business for long but it surely [...] moreLa Coppia contemporary Italian restaurant – A pleasant surprise
Italians living abroad are often wary of restaurants prominently displaying our national flag and sporting Italian names, so I was dubious as I approached La Coppia in the alleys behind Hyundai Dept Store, despite my Korean lunch companion having warmly recommended it (or perhaps because of it).

It’s easy to look around modern South Korea and forget that within living memory, this country was wartorn and impoverished, and has within 60 years built itself up to become one of the strongest economies in the world. KoreaBang has posted a number of really cool retrospective photo essays on Korea. It’s really worth taking [...] moreTravel Vaccines in Ulsan
