Marathoning Japan – Four Cities in Five Days

10348770_10202776457475999_6149033927542325371_o

On the journey back to my tiny apartment home in Daegu, my eyelids were leaden, various leg muscles were pulled, and I lethargically guessed what subway line to take to get back. Five days in Japan had chewed me up and spat me out. But with a pocketful of strange coins, and many warm, beautiful memories, despite my weariness I looked up into the sky over Korea spiritually satiated. My gaze has become a little more wizened from my travels further east. So take some time to tie your shoelaces a little tighter, I’ll take you on my sprint through Japan one more time.

Registration for March 22nd Meeting OPEN!!

We are not usually big fans of the flavored makgeolli out there, but it might just be because we haven’t found the right one!  Our next location has been featured on the popular Korean food TV show ‘Tasty Road’, and it is very well known for its blueberry makgeolli.  From the looks of the pictures, they are doing something special as it is very thick and frothy.  We expect the makgeolli to be on the sweeter, fruiter side of the palate this time around.

Cargo 127: Craft Beer and Pub Grub Perfection in Itaewon

One of the biggest culinary trends to hit South Korea over the past couple years is that of craft beer.  Subsequently, microbreweries and small gastropubs have been mushrooming throughout Seoul, particularly in the neighborhoods of Itaewon, Gyeongnidan and Haebangchon.

Each of these watering holes offers up their own specialties, all of which are nice alternatives of tasteless Cass, watery OB and the rest of Korea's substandard brews.  One of the best places to get in on the craft action is Cargo 127 in the heart of Itaewon.

Seoul's nightlife

I've been thinking about What to wirte lately, apparently been in Korea for 3 months and doing lots of activities is draining me and I just can't think what to blog about... sad, I know :(
Even from the sky Seoul looks very alive

September 21st ‘Chuseok’ Meeting Registration Open!!

Wouldn’t you know it, our regular Makgeolli Mamas & Papas meeting falls right smack in the middle of the Chuseok holiday!  As Chuseok is a traditional eating and drinking holiday, we thought we should find somewhere with a traditional style to celebrate ourselves.  Of course we were inevitably steered towards the Insadong area, and we stumbled on a traditional alcohol house that has a seriously extensive makgeolli selection!
