CAFÉ CHAIN: Miss Lee Café (Insadong)

I heard that this cafeé chain was very famous, but the first question that came to my mind was: “Who’s Miss Lee?” To be honest, I still don’t know, but it doesn’t matter. Miss Lee Café is easily spotted from far away, thanks to who I can only assume is Miss Lee, perched on a bench […]

Myeongdong 56th: Army Stew in Seoul

It seems that most people know about army stew when you talk about Korean cuisine, and so we knew we couldn’t go without at least having one meal of army stew on any of our trips to Korea. For the unacquainted, Budae-jjigae (부대찌개; literally “army base stew”) or sausage stew is a type of jjigae (stew), made with ham, sausage, spam, baked beans, kimchi and gochujang.[ The dish […]

Common Ground

If you love hipster experiences, hipster places, hipster photos, hipster food, hipster fashion, basically everything hipster, Common Ground is the place to go.

MBC World

For those who are big fans of Korean dramas, you may want to visit the filming sets and broadcasting companies during your trip to Seoul. While I visited MBC’s HQ in Yeouido last year, I didn’t really see anything exciting, so I thought I would pay a visit to MBC World in Digital Media City […]
