Everything You Need to Know About Ulsan

!Pop Factory!

Posted by on Jun 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on !Pop Factory!

This week I was fortunate enough to discover Pop Factory, a relatively new, hip Italian restaurant. After our fist visit, my friend Aaron and I think it needs to be shared with the waygooks of Ulsan and visitors alike. It is located in Namgu Jeong, at the south end of the park (울산문화예술회관) behind the Ulsan Art and Cultural Center (and KBS building).  It offers a traditional menu of pizza, pasta, wine, coffee, beer, and soda.  It was recommended...

In the first weeks of my arrival in Ulsan I stumbled on to what has become one of my favorite restaurants for lunch: 면공장 The Noodle Factory. The Noodle Factory is a small restaurant on the busy street behind the Hyundai Department Store in Samsan-dong.면공장is owned and operated by Mr. Kim who also owns a second restaurant in the area. Though Mr. Kim doesn’t speak any English, his business partner Mr. Kang does. Mr. Kang is a familiar face...

Finally, good Thai – Sarojin

Posted by on Jun 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on Finally, good Thai – Sarojin

I’ve always wanted a good Thai restaurant in Ulsan.  Or in Korea, frankly.  There are decent ones in Seoul and Busan, but the Ulsan offerings so far have been limited to Noodle Box and Pattaya, neither of which is any good.  So praise his majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej that we have been delivered. You may have already noticed this place, as it happens to be just a few doors down the street from JJ’s.  Not only does Sarojin offer the...

Jeezle is the answer to your prayers.

Posted by on May 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on Jeezle is the answer to your prayers.

Sandwich lovers rejoice, Jeezle is your saviour! With all of the new restaurants springing up in Ulsan’s ‘new downtown’ (Samsan-dong), it may become tough to decide where to spend your lunch money. Jeezle is certainly a top contender for your hard earned won, and if you love fresh bread, fresh veggies, and cheese, it may be at the top of your list. Located [in the Ulsan City Hotel] on Samsan-ro between Hyundai Department Store and the New Core Outlet...

Goh-bong Min Kimbap: The Best Kimbap in Ulsan

Posted by on May 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on Goh-bong Min Kimbap: The Best Kimbap in Ulsan

Let’s face it many people don’t touch kimbap unless they offered it by a kind co-worker or it is the only thing available at the time. For most foreigners, it is more of a snack than a meal. However, I have found a place that will knock your socks off! Still may be just a snack but a damn good one at that. Kimbap places are everywhere and let’s face it, they are pretty hard to tell apart. They...

One’s Coffee – The Rotating Cafe

Posted by on Apr 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on One’s Coffee – The Rotating Cafe

The other day I trekked through a dark bamboo forest, crossed a river on a bamboo raft to drink a 5,000 won coffee in a rotating coffee shop that sits on a pillar in the middle of a river. This sounds like something out of a fantasy novel and not a cafe in the heart of Ulsan. Probably one of the more unique places to sip an expensive americano, One’s Coffee is the only “rotating cafe” in Ulsan. Located...

Pommes Frites – French fries done right.

Posted by on Apr 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on Pommes Frites – French fries done right.

It’s easy to write a restaurant review for a place that only has one thing on the menu, and it’s even easier when that one thing is French Fries. Pommes Frites is the newest restaurant to open in Mugeodong and their simple menu promises one thing. Excellent fries. The prices at Pommes Frites are more than reasonable, and the portions that they serve are more than adequate. Each order comes with a choice of 10 different sauces including the...

So-Dahm Bibim Guksu

Posted by on Apr 8, 2013 in | Comments Off on So-Dahm Bibim Guksu

Korean food reviews on Ulsan Online are a rarity and it is a shame. There are so many great restaurants here that I think, as a foreign community, we are missing out. In an effort to introduce more Korean food to our Ulsan Online readers, I set out to explore the “Gogi (Meat) Street” a wonderful street that follows the Taehwa River, just up from the Taehwa River Grand Park. Like most things in Ulsan, the names that we...

Cafe In Roasting House – Good Coffee in Taehwa Dong

Posted by on Apr 4, 2013 in | Comments Off on Cafe In Roasting House – Good Coffee in Taehwa Dong

When it comes to coffee, I don’t mess around. It has become more of an obsession than an addiction. Part of that obsession is locating good cafes in Ulsan. These are the ones that not only make a great cup of coffee but provide a great experience as well. This is a difficult challenge in Korea, especially in Ulsan. What sets Cafe In apart from your usual “coffee prince wanna-be cafes” is the fact that this is a gorgeous...

Bella Di Notte Is Back!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2013 in | Comments Off on Bella Di Notte Is Back!

Update: March 2013 – Opening hours – 11:30-22:00 (break from 15:00-17:00) By Ross Leader,  Photos by Jason Teale I almost choked on a mouthful of tagliatelle when I heard the news; Ray, the purveyor of undoubtedly the finest Italian cuisine in Ulsan, had just told us that he was soon to shut up shop and relocate.  Guyeong-li was not funnelling custom, and he had set his sights on new premises in an obscure place called Weolsung, somewhere near Gyeongju....
