I love dogs but am not ready to have my own, so I dog-sit for others. If you’re interested in adopting a dog in Korea, you should check out Wendy’s Last Meals in Busan. WLM is run by Jin Young Shin and assisted by Leo Mendoza.

If you haven’t checked out the Andy Warhol exhibition at the Busan Museum of Art, you still can until March 20, 2016. 

It’s small, but it’s a nice way to spend 1-2 hours in Centum. Admission is 12,000won for adults, but you can get half off with the education discount.

How Koreans Celebrate Lunar New Year

 


New Year’s Eve in Korea

I had planned on ringing in the New Year in some exotic destination.  First it was Boracay (where my bestie McBesterson is currently hangin’ – jealous, what?), then it was Hong Kong (flights were about $200 Canadian, but hotels were another story), and finally I had dreams of Tokyo.

Slice Of Life: Pizza

Spice, comfort and flavour.

I had been hearing a lot, and I mean a LOT, of buzz about Slice of Life Pizza, so I decided it was high time I paid it a visit. Opened in late 2015 by Kim Chanu, a native Korean who had been living in New York. The aim of the restaurant is to serve authentic, NY style pizza, paired with a craft beer menu. Being a big fan of pizza, and craft beer, I was looking forward to this one.


Mad For Garlic: Haeundae

 

I have recently found myself dining at the Haeundae Branch of the Italian restaurant chain Mad For Garlic. Twice! Mad For Garlic is a South Korean ‘Italian Wine Bistro’, which has 39 branches in Korea alone. They specialize in dishes based around, can you guess….. Garlic!

The first visit was at the request of my fiancé, and the second as we had an excellent discount coupon available to us from the restaurant’s membership club. A quick note on that. It is well worth joining, as the discounts they offer are substansial. On this occasion we cashed one in which allowed us to choose a free steak from the menu.  As Mad For Garlic can be on the pricey side, it’s a welcome bonus. To join you have to register online, best to get a Korean speaking friend to help you if possible.

Don-Don: Japanese Dining House

A Happy New Year Experience

I’m a huge fan of Japanese food. I must confess I also enjoy a whisky highball or three, especially on a special occasion. With this in mind, myself and my fiancé decided to make Don-Don our NYE restaurant of choice.

The first thing that struck us as we walked into Don-Don was the atmosphere. The place was buzzing pleasantly with a mixture of families, friends, and couples. We were promptly seated with a menu and told by the attentive staff that a table would be ready in 5 minutes.

We ordered right away, both opting for sets from the main menu. I went for the Beef, and my fiancé the Shabu-Shabu. Both meals came with rice, miso soup, pickled vegetables and, bizarrely, pasta. These side dishes were very welcome (pasta aside), but didn’t distract from the stars of the show.
