Registration for August 31st Meeting Open!!

Latin inspired makgeolli?  Yes please!  For our next meeting we are headed to Anguk-dong to a little bar called Sanchez Makgeolli.  All we know is it’s small, it’s quirky, and it has an awesome makgeolli selection.  This place doesn’t have a lot of space, so we will be keeping the numbers for this meeting smaller than usual.  If you would like to join us, send us an email at mmpkorea@gmail.com fast to get your place!


Different Kinds of Korean Pancakes (Buchimgae)

What do you like to eat when it rains?

When I was in the Philippines, my Mom would make delicious champorado (chocolate rice porridge) orlugaw (congee or boiled rice porridge) to warm us up on a rainy day.

Here in South Korea, the most famous comfort food during the rainy season is 부침개 (buchimgae) or 전 (jeon), also known as Korean pancake or Korean pizza. Koreans eat it with 막걸리 (makgeolli) or rice wine.


Makgeolli School – An Adventure in Tasting

Rating and Opening

A while ago our MMPK staff and a few die-hard makgeolli lovers got together for a night of education and tasting wonderment.  We wanted to improve our own knowledge of just what is out there, so we can then pass it on to our fellow Mamas & Papas.  We couldn’t have chosen a better place than Makgeolli School right near Isu station.


Makgeolli Making Class in English!!!

We frequently get asked ‘Where can we learn how to make makgeolli in English?’

Susubori Academy is a school for learning how to brew makgeolli and other kinds of Korean traditional liquors. Two expat makgeolli experts, Becca Baldwin & Dan Lenaghan, have been perfecting the art of brewing and have a wealth of makgeolli knowledge we could only dream of having. As such, we are pleased to announce that we have a special MMPK makgeolli brewing workshop taught by Dan and Becca themselves at Susubori Academy!

Registration for August 10th Meeting OPEN!!

The rains have finally cleared up, so we are looking for a terrace to enjoy our makgeolli. So for this meeting we are headed to a place in Seocho that […]

Makgeolli Shelf Life Extended to 100 Days

Now this could be a step in the right direction.  Fresh makgeolli currently only has a shelf life of around 30 days due to the fermentation process.  Any longer than that and it starts to taste quite sour and bitter….but not in a good way.  According to the Korea Food Research Institute, this could all change as they have found a way to extend the storage life of makgeolli to 100 days.  This could be mean big things for the export market, as previously it hasn’t been worthwhile to ship and stock overseas buyers with the short lifespan.


Registration For July 20th Meeting Open!!

Our last few meetings have been on the upscale side of the makgeolli scene, so for this meeting we thought we would try something a little more casual. The place we are headed is in hongdae, has a wide range of makgeolli, and also some interesting dong dong ju combinations. Spaces are limited, so get those emails in quick! Send us a message at mmpkorea@gmail.com to get your spot:)
