Mapo Mandu 마포만두

Posted by Unknown 0 comments Links to this post
After an exhausting morning spent wondering around KBS, it's time to refill my tummy! Saw this chain restaurant somewhere near KBS station here in Yeouido.
It's called - 마포만두 (Mapo Mandu)
What's their signature dish, you might ask? What else, but their Mandu of course! Recommended is the 갈비만두 (kalbi-mandu). Besides Mandu, there's many more choices that is equivalently delicious!
Here's the menu..
(sorry if it's in Korean, you may ask for an English menu from the staff ^^)
여기서 만두가지고 하고 김밥 하고 냉면 하고
다 맛이겠어요
Here are some from the menu...
오뎅 (O-deng)
It's a type of fish cake, normally seen in-a-skew. Here, it's slice into a bowl for you together with the rich broth. It's only 2,000won per bowl.
  계런밥 (kye-ran bap) Egg Rice
Steam flavoured rice topped with a sunny-side up egg & sprinkle with dried flavoured seaweed. 
3,000won per bowl
 And one of my personal favourites 김밥
I think I ordered 야재김밥 (ya-chae kimbap) here
2,000won per roll
 I've been eating awfully lot of Kimbap recently. Not that it's bad or anything.. ^^
It's cheap, convenient, healthy & most important it's Yummy!
Not to mentioned, it's easy to make as well.
Well, as always I can't seems to get enough of the 김치 Kimchi & 단무지 Danmuji!
So why I love the food here??
Simply coz the price is quite reasonable & the food here is delicious!!

How to get there
~By Subway~
National Assembly Station (Seoul Subway Line 9), Exit# 4. Walk straight ahead around 100m, make a right turning on the first alley seen.
This branch is situated in this Island Park building.
Directly opposite of this Silk center building.

Here's another bloggers' reviews: Seok

There's a few branches here in Seoul, but if you happen to drop by this branch in Yeouido, KBS station is just around the corner. Here's the directions to KBS: http://kgonju.blogspot.com/2013/10/directions-to-kbs-station.html

Mouse Rabbit cafe 
Grand open on the 11th November 2012 by Yesung (Super Junior vocalist) & his brother. Take a wild guess how the cafe got its name?! Simple..it's goes by the owners' Chinese Zodiac. ^^
Rumour has it that ‘mouse’ & ‘rabbit’ refers to the zodiac signs of the Kim brothers. – ‘mouse’ for Yesung & ‘rabbit’ for Jongjin.
The owner with his first customer! Fellow band-mate- Eunhyuk

연대껍데기 8,000won BBQ meat buffet in Sinchon

Posted by Unknown 2 comments Links to this post
Craving for some meat? Then head over to this All-you-can-eat Korean BBQ in Sinchon (신촌). It's called 연대껍데기 Yondae Kkeopdegi. Only 8,000KRW per person!!! The best part is the UNLIMITED refills of meat & other side dishes. It's pretty much a buffet style self service place, where you fill up the provided small plates with assorted 반찬 Banchan (Korean side dishes) and 고기 Gogi (meat) as your heart desires, and then you cook the meat yourself on tabletop grills.

Directions to KBS Station

Posted by Unknown 2 comments Links to this post
Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) is South Korean radio and television network located in Yeouido. It is the home of the famous Korean Drama hits like Full House, Boys Over Flowers, Sungkyungkwan Scandal, Good Doctor and many more. I am an avid Korean drama fan, so visiting Seoul without coming here is a big no-no. And if you are also fond of KPop or Super Junior fan, KBS is a must-visit place in Korea. SuKiRa or Super Junior Kiss the Radio program is aired at KBS everyday at 10-12midnight.

Places to visit near Chungmuro Station + Chungmuro Pet Street

Posted by Unknown 0 comments Links to this post
Chungmuro has been known as the street of culture, artists, and film industry. Chungmuro was named after Chungmugong, the posthumous title of Korean Admiral Yi Sun-shin, which means "martial subject of loyalty." The last syllable "ro" refers to road in Korean. Nowadays many film studios moved from Chungmuro to the Gangnam district, Chungmuro still symbolizes the Korean film industry and continues to be used as a metonymy for it.

Places of interest in Chungmuro:
  • Chungmuro Camera District
  • Daehan Cinema
  • Pet Street
  • Korea House
  • Namsangol Hanok Village
