Comfort food: Chicken Noodle Soup

November 17, 2017

Comfort food.

It’s exactly what I need. Although this is food for the body.

I actually also need some comfort food for my mind and soul.

I miss my friends. My unni and hyungboo. The cold air. The beautiful trees. The deep blue sky.

I actually miss FRESH AIR. Air that is breathable.

Today I was in the mood for soup. I wanted something to … I don’t know what the heck I’m typing. I wanted to make some chicken noodle soup yesterday so when I went to emart with Kaden, I bought some fresh herbs and ingredients to make it today. So today, I did. I made a whole big pot.

My in-laws had never tried chicken noodle soup so we had it for lunch.

룽청 | 압구정동맛집 | 압구정중식 | 압구정중국집 | Korean-Chinese Cuisine Apgujeong

August 26, 2017

Ever heard of Korean-Chinese Cuisine?

Well, it’s also called Korean style Chinese food. Long ago, when Chinese immigrants came to Korea to settle down, they took Chinese cuisine to a new level by making it their own. They put the Korean style into Chinese cuisine and made it a new sensation in Korea.

Now, Korea has its own Chinese cuisine that is Chinese food, with some Korean flare.

Fried shrimp with cream sauce.

I don’t remember what this was in English but it was like a slightly spicy fried shrimp dimsum on top of sea cucumbers.

일마지오 | Il MAZZIO | 명동파스타 | 명동 파스타맛집 | MeyongDong Pasta | Seoul Italian Restaurant

August 1, 2017

Julia and I had lunch at IL MAZZIO in Meyong Dong and had the most fulfilling Italian food ever!

일마지오 명동점
을지로2가 199-46 충일빌딩 3층

Weekdays:  11:30 – 22:30     Weekends:  12:00 – 22:30

Il Mazzio is an Italian restaurant in Meyong Dong. The best thing about Il Mazzio is that you get unlimited pizza if you order a main dish, per person.

Not bad eh?

Also, if you go before 1PM, you get to choose between a free salad or a free drink. How much better can this get?!?!!

When we first walked in, it was packed!

The kitchen and table setting was like any other Italian restaurant.

You see that block right there in the picture with GREEN WHITE and RED. If you keep it with the GREEN side up, that means you’re willing to have more pizza. If you put it RED side up, that means you don’t want any more pizza.

완우네 | 상수동 타코 맛집 | SANG SU TACO | SANG SU PUB | 홍대 타코 술집

July 31, 2017

I love going places with my dad. I am after all a “daddy’s little girl”. In Vancouver, we would go for coffee or just even go for a stroll around the hood, but ever since we came to Korea, it’s like we have to make time to see each other.

So today, we did.

We went to a Taco/Chicken place at SANG SU Station (Line#6). It’s a little pub like place that sells fried shrimp and chicken but you eat it like a taco.

Once you get off the train, head to exit #3. Walk towards the Starbucks that’s on your right side and keep walking along the sidewalk (don’t cross the street).

You’ll see a sign like this that points you to 완우네.

You’ll also find this cute table made of storage boxes and old beer bottles.

Isn’t it cute? Maybe I’m the only one who thinks it’s cute but whatever.
