Best Korean BBQ in Gangnam, Seoul!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

This is my FAVORITE restaurant in Seoul, South Korea.  I have no idea what the name is, but this is all I remember - the cooking pan is shaped like a turtle - with its tail as the oil drain. 

My Panget took this pic last October 2010

My friend Diane brought us here for dinner (last October 2010) since we wanted samgyupsal.  This place was quite far from us since we stayed across the Han River, but nevertheless - my Panget and I braved the trip and went to meet Dye at a specific location.  She then led the way up an alley to a building where the restaurant was located - we went down, because it was in the basement.

I had no expectations on the restaurant, but since my Panget and I were hungry - we had Dye do the ordering and we ate - EVERYTHING.  What was funny was, Dye just watched us eat - she literally did because she said that she already(she was with friend or relatives - I couldn't remember) ate before meeting us.  The food was DELICIOUS!  It was a simple Korean Barbeque but everything tasted wonderful, my Panget and I had to order seconds and thirds!  I couldn't put into words, how much I enjoyed the meal.  It was very good and memorable.

One thing I forgot was - to get a calling card.  And so when I went back home, it was just in my head.  I knew that there was a Uniqlo nearby and a store called Artbox that sold whatever things like notebooks and shirts and abubuts.

The Food Club planned for a Korea trip last year, and my Panget and I were the last recruits.  My Panget and I wanted to see Seoul again, and since the Club was going - we decided to go with them.  And when everything was confirmed, I secretly wanted to go back to this particular restaurant, but honestly didn't know how to.  So I tried searching online - but I honestly didn't know what to search for.  But then on my last try - I think I found the site!  I was unsure at first, but when I saw the cooking pan that was in the picture and the oil drain pain - I was convinced that I finally found it!  Here's the article that I found online on the restaurant.

Of Airports, Airlines and delayed flights

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Everyone hates delayed flights, right?

Well, my Panget and I were no exceptions.  When we arrived at the PAL Airport last April 9 for our flight - well, we were informed that - our flight was DELAYED - our supposed flight was supposed to leave at 12mn but it was not scheduled to leave at 4:20am.  WONDERFUL!  Since my Panget and I were the only ones who were flying via PAL - I instantly called Fran who was taking the Cebu Pacific counterpart flight.  I told her that we were delayed and that she may want to check if they were delayed too!  The counter people informed us that the delay was due to weather conditions, that there was a heavy fog thus - the Incheon Airport was closed down and will operate at about 4:00am.

My Panget and I decided to go back home - since it was just 9:30 in the evening.  We didn't want to hang around in the airport.  And in 30 minutes, we were back home.  At about 2:00am, I called the airport hotline and was informed again that flight was moved to 5:20am.  Crap.  I was having a bad feeling that out flight would be moved to their next Seoul flight, which was at 2:30in the afternoon.  My Panget and I decided that in case this happens - that we would not push through with our Korea trip.
