Ironically despite I being the U.S. citizen and my father being the Korean citizen it is he who loves and at times craves hamburgers viciously at times.

There is a burger chain called: Brooklyn The Burger Joint scattered around Seoul which is a tad expensive compared to...

There's a really nice croissant place located in Bukchon along the road of Gye-Dong: Artisan Croissant. Gye-Dong, itself, is a fun and charming street filled with small shops, cafes and restaurants- a lot similar to how Garosu-gil was in the early years of its populari...

I really liked this bakery, and I used to frequent it more, as I don't know of anywhere else that provides Yakisoba-pan daily, but sadly I haven't been able to visit it in some time. It doesn't mean I can't speak of its goodness.

You can always find their cutely decorat...

While a butchery isn't hard to come across in Seoul, a Western-styled one is- one that involves salami and cured meat, that is. Thankfully, there is one famous and good one located in Bukchon: Salt House.

You can find their prepackaged assortment of meats in a clear fri...

 Korean doughnuts or kkwabaegi can be found in most busy streets of Seoul, and this one (Jamidang) can be found near the streets of Bukchon.

It's all for very fair prices as the donut I show below was around ‎₩2,000 for three. A lady who had been standing near had procl...

My mother introduced this place and is a frequent customer- it certainly is a place I'd recommend more to Korean locals than to foreigners, as it leans more toward nostalgia than modern with its taste. But it certainly doesn't mean the taste cannot be appreciated by ne...

This event happened before the Seoul Illustration Fair and I really regret not posting in a more timely manner, but better late than never.

It wasn't as packed as the Seoul Illustration Fair, but perhaps that served as an advantage since my attention was divided  equall...
