Dal Thai

Thai cuisine is amazing. Everyone knows that. The spicy yet refreshing blend of spices, the creamy flavor of coconut milk, and the fresh pop of flash fried vegetables add up to make an enchanting mix. When done right…. and it isn’t easy to do right. So it was myself and three friends headed up the hill towards Dalmaji, with a heady mixture of excitement and trepidation.


Ox: Smoke and Grill

American BBQ seems to be taking off in Korea! In Seoul there are several restaurants, including the excellent ‘Linus’ and ‘Manimal’, to name a couple. In Busan we have the fantastic ‘Haeundae Smokehouse’, and now, the new kid on the block….literally.

‘Ox: Smoke and Grill’ is situated in the heart of Haeundae, just a few minutes’ walk from the subway station, in a tight cluster of streets full of restaurants, love motels and Hotels. The restaurant itself is on the ground floor of the Industries Hotel. You can view their Facebook page here.

The interior is light and airy. Cool, grey tiled floors and imposing white marble table tops greet you as you walk in. The banquette seating is plush and black, with modern art installations on the walls. All-in-all a classy, contemporary vibe has been achieved.

Peking Duck is hands down the best thing I ate in Beijing. It’s heavily disputed which restaurant serves the best, but we decided to go to Da Dong Roast Duck 北京大董烤鸭店. They have three restaurants in Beijing to choose from.

Momo Steak (모모스테이크) is well-known for Hamburg Steak, which is basically Koreanized American Salisbury steak. It’s cheap (starts at 7,000₩), fast, and tastes good for the price. I prefer to pay a bit more to not eat ground beef, but the presentation is always nice either way.

Bubbas: Dalmaji

Having Friday free, we decided to head up Dalmaji to see the newly bloomed Cherry Blossoms. It was a beautiful day, and brunch was sounding a fantastic idea. We had a recommendation from a friend to try Bubbas, a fantastically situated brunch café perched right atop the hill. According to their menu they have four locations around Busan, including one in Marine City. Valet parking was free for two hours when we went, which was a nice touch.

The first thing that impressed me about Bubbas was the scale of the dining area. Food is ordered at the bar, a compact corner, which leaves the majority of the restaurant free for seating. There’s a wide range of seating options, from stools at breakfast bars to comfortable lounge chairs and sofas. We chose some relaxing seats at the wide open windows, overlooking Dalmaji. As you can see from the photos, the views are impressive. So far, so good.


Burgers at Battery Park

Seoul, South Korea — It has been a while since my last restaurant review. So here goes another one. After a tiring morning exercise at Bears Town Ski Resort, Danny and I headed to Dongdaemun to meet up with his aunt. We strolled around Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) for the nth time hoping to find… Continue reading Burgers at Battery Park

Butterfinger Pancakes (버터핑거 팬케익스) offers all-day breakfast in Gangnam, Seoul in big portions. One order is enough to share between two people, but I can never agree with friends on what to order so we always order way too much.
