Kacie from Star Super

도곡동에 있는 스타슈퍼에 import 과자랑 많이 팔아요!
이 날 전 일본 캔디를 샀어요!
하나당 3,500 – 6,000원!
만드는 재미가 있어서 유투브에서도 많이 하는거 봤어요~

The Star Super in Dogok has a lot of import goods
I bought these Japanese candy
Each is from 3,500-6,000 or around $3.50-6

🥢 짜장면 짬뽕 집! 🥢
Black Bean Noodles and Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup

주변에 맛있다고 하셔서 한번 가봤어요
We visited this place because someone recommended it to us.

img_3498-e1517807561103.jpg

탕수육이나 군만두 먹을 때 항상 기름 때문에 좀 그랬어요
하지만 여기는 재활용 하지 않고 깨끗한 기름 사용한다고 해서 좋았어요~
I’m always iffy about places that serve fried food because I don’t know how old their oil is. But luckily, this restaurant doesn’t reuse their oil. I hate when restaurants reuse their oil and there’s this icky oil smell.


🥃 Chinese Alcohol 🥃

해물 짬뽕! 되게 매웠어요
Seafood Jjamppong. It was pretty spicy
8,000원

Starbucks in Korea

한국 스벅에 이쁜게 있어서 한번 찍어 봤어요~
Starbucks has a these cute mugs and tumblers that I had to share~

크리스마스 컵! 자세히 보면 하나는 남자 손이고 다른 손은 여자 손이에요!
Starbucks cup for the holidays. If you look closely, you can see that one hand is male and the other is female.

Agra in COEX

img_64051-e1515122909139.jpg

이번에는 인도식!
Indian Food in Korea!

img_64031.jpg
커플 세트로 주문했어요
We ordered the couple set
( ´∀`)

라씨가 요거트랑 물 섞은거에요~
여기는 과일 넣어서 달콤했어요
후식으로 딱인거 같아요
Lassi is yogurt that is mixed with water
Here they use fruits so it was sweet
Perfect as dessert

IMG_6407

베리베리베리 라씨
Berry Berry Berry Lassi

IMG_6408

망고 라씨
Mango Lassi

전 망고 라씨가 더 맛있었던거 같아요
I thought that the mango lassi tasted better than the berry

IMG_6409

Honey Mango Bread

이게 제일 맛있었던거 같아요
빵이라고 했을 때 그냥 빵인줄 알았는데
알고보니 셀러드랑 빵이였어요
탄두리에서 구워낸 난 브레드에 시금치와 망고, 파마산 치즈가 올라가 있어요
I thought that this was the best dish.
When they said you get bread, I thought it would be literally bread so I was surprised to see salad. This is basically mango, spinach, and parmesan cheese on top of naan.

IMG_6413

탄두리치킨
Tandoori Chicken

아쉽게도 너무 퍽퍽했어요
결국에는 치킨은 못 먹었어요
Unfortunately, the chicken was too dry for us to eat.
So we skipped it

IMG_6415

Classic Naan
클래식난

전 원래 인디언 음식 먹을 때 갈릭난을 좋아하는데 한번 클래식으로 먹어 봤어요~
I usually get the garlic naan when I get Indian food but I went for the classic this time

IMG_6418

Chicken Tikka Masala
치킨 띠까 마살라

미국에서 인디언 음식 먹을 때 띠까 마살라를 많이 먹었어요
비교를 했을 때 여기 띠까 마살라는 향이 강하지 않았어요
아마 한국인 입맛으로 만든거 같아요
My go to curry. I love tikka masala. The one here was okay but the spices weren’t as strong as I am used to. They made it to suit the Korean taste buds.

노란색 밥도 원래 나오는데 우리는 까먹고 안 줬어요
The set comes with yellow rice but they forgot about us.

(´・_・`)

전체적으로 괜찮았던거 같아요!
많이 배부르다라는 느낌은 없었어요
아마 치킨이랑 밥을 못 먹어서 그런거 같아요
여기 메니져분이 되게 친절 했어요
India?쪽에서 오신거 같은데 한국말도 짱 잘 했어요!
I thought it was good overall
I didn’t feel too full afterwards, which could be because we missed out on the chicken and rice…
The manager was very friendly. He seemed to be from India or maybe Bangladesh? But he was fluent in Korean, which was interesting.

Soul Brew ☕

IMG_5148

스토니부룩 근처에 스타벅스 말고 다른 커피숍이 있을까 고민하던 중
제시카 친구가 이 카페를 추천해줬어요.
우리가 갔을 때 조용하고 아늑한 분위기였어요

We were looking for a coffee shop in Stony Brook that was not Starbucks.
While looking, Jessica’s friend recommended this cafe.
It was quiet and cozy.

10 잔 마시면 공짜!
우리는 이런거 너무 좋아해요
계속오게되요~
(ᗒᗨᗕ)
I love when cafes have these stamp cards.
Free drink after 10 drinks!
It makes us want to come again and again just to watch it fill up!

분위기!
휘핑크림을 너무 많아서 미시기엔 조금 불편했어요

음료는 조금 달아요
직원들이 너무 친절해서 좋았어요
두번 왔는데 바로 알아보고 이름까지 기억해주는 곳이 많지 않은거 같아요

The drinks are a bit on the sweet side.
The staff is very nice! We felt welcomed and relaxed.
When we came the second time, they remembered our names!

Pie Hole 🍰

IMG_4243

파이를 너무 좋아하는데 마침 아메리카나에서 파이 파는 곳이 있었어요!
I love PIE! So imagine my excitement when I saw this in Americana Way

IMG_4232

According to their website, they have locations in Arts District, Hollywood, Pasadena, Glendale, Long Beach, Orange County, Venice, Rancho Cucamonga, and Durham. So basically most of the big cities around here.

They even opened in Tokyo!, Ginza, and Harajuku!

엘에이 근체에 많이 있어요~
일본 도쿄에도 열었더고 하네요!

생긴지 얼마 안 되서 아직 지도에 안나오네요!
백현동있는 쪽이에요
🍜

This place doesn’t appear on Google Maps because it’s relatively new.

IMG_2199

깨긋하고 밝았어요~
It’s clean and bright!

추운 날씨에 냉면이 땡겨서 들렸는데 맛있었어요!
It was cold but we were all in the mood for cold noodles

IMG_2200

다음에는 육개장을 먹어봐야겠어요
I want to try their YukGaeJang soup next time.

IMG_2207

반찬은 김치랑 무무침만 나와요
You get kimchi and radish as your side dishes.

IMG_2211

전 물냉면 보다 비빔냉면을 주문했어요
맛있어요! 면도 쫀득쫀득해요
양념은 조금 매웠어요

I ordered the cold noodles without the cold broth.
It was so good but a bit spicy.


Willium Cafe ☕

윌리엄카페 ☕
자주 지나가는 곳이지만 한번도 안 가봤어요
Willium Cafe
I’ve passed by it plenty of times but have never been inside.

삼다가라는 돼지 고기 전문 식당 지하에 있는 카페이에요
음식점 영수증 가지고 가면 DC있어요!
The cafe is located in the basement of a restaurant called SamDaGa, which specializes in pork. If you take the receipt downstairs, you can get a discount 🙂

보이시는거와 같이 계단으로 내려오먄 카페이에요!
되게 잘 되어있어요
이 곳에 이런 카페가 있구나 싶었어요

You come down the stairs and it’s the cafe.
At first glance, we were surprised that there was such a cafe in that area.

들오면 보이는 싸인이에요
귀여웠어요
This is the sign you see as you come into the cafe
(Translation: You like coffee and I like you)

점심시간이였는데 사람이 많이 없었어요
근데 소리가 울려서 크게 들렸어요
조금 시끄러웠어요
We went during lunch time but there wasn’t a lot of people.
But the voices seem to echo, which made the cafe seem louder that it was.

여기는 오는 사람마다 음료를 주문해야되요
Everyone who enters must order a drink to use the seats.
I guess they had a problem with this in the past


계단 옆이 화장실이에요
The bathroom is located inside the cafe, next to the stairs

앉을 수 있는 시간이 없어서 사진만 빨리 찍고 나왔어요
다음에 가면 더 많은 사진 올릴께요~
I didn’t have time to sit so I just quickly took a few pictures before leaving.
I’ll make sure to upload more about it the next time I visit!

If you clean up they give you free shaved ice

IMG_6751
다 셀프서비스이에요~
그래서 좋은 가격으로 드실 수 있는거 같아요~
Self service~
This is probably why the price is so affordable

IMG_6758
다양한 술도 있어요
They have many different types of drinks

수족관이있어요!
다양한 조개가 있어서 처음에는 뭘 먹어야 될지 몰랐어요~
There is a tank full of different clams
We didn’t know which one to eat

IMG_6756
조개구이는 맥주가 딱이죠~
You need to have beer with this

IMG_6752
싱싱해요~
They’re so fresh

IMG_6748
조개 외에 고기, 꼬치, 라면 있습니다
Other than clams, they have pork, skewers, and ramyeon!


Nissin Japanese Mug Noodle

img_2255
어렸을 때 많이 먹었던 라면이에요
맛은 미국에 있는 일본 컵라면이랑 같아요! (아래 사진)
This is something I enjoyed eating when I was in Korea
It tastes like the cup noodles you find in the States (see pic below)
Image result for cup noodles

2가지 스프랑 면 4개
간장: 강아지 🐶
해산물: 판다 🐼
4 noodle packs and 2 different soup types

일어는 못 읽어요;;
I don’t know Japanese;;

수프 그릇에 담아 봤어요
작죠!
딱 한 컵에서 해 벅을 수 있는 양이에요
I put everything in a soup bowl as reference
You get enough noodles for a small mug

뜨거운 물 150mL
2분 기다리면 끝!
Add 150mL of hot water and wait 2 minutes

You can also purchase this off of Amazon

₩15,000 / ₩13,000

저번에 연어 아보카도로 주문을 했었어요
근데 전 연어 보다 햄이 더 맛있는거 같아요
세트로 주문 (₩15,000) 커피와 나와요
그냥 주문시 (₩13,000)

Last time we were here, we ordered the Salmon&Avocado Bennedict
But I think the ham is a lot better than the salmon
If you order the set its ₩15,000 and it comes with coffee

IMG_2556
뇨끼 크림 파스타
Gnocchi Cream Pasta 
₩12,000

조랭이 파스타 같았어요
감자, 시금치로 만든 뇨끼면에 베이컨, 고구마를 넣은 크림파스타
까르보나라랑 비슷한 느낌~

Gnocchi made from potatoes and spinach
Cream sauce made from bacon and sweet potatoes
It’s similar to carbonara

img_0018.jpg
Croissant on Carbonara Pasta
까르보나라 & 크루아상
₩17,000

깊은 버터품미의 크루아상이 올라간 크림파스타
조금 느끼하지만 맛있어요
이탈리식 까르보나라는 아니에요

Basically it’s carbonara with croissant rather than bread
It’s really thick and creamy
It’s not the traditional carbonara you will see in Italy

IMG_2558
Bollente Pasta
볼렌떼
₩19,000

토마토 소스와 신선한 해산물을 뚝배기에 넣고 끊인 파스타
여기에서 제가 제일 좋아하는 메뉴 아이템이에요
토마토 소스가 국물 먹는거 같아서 좋아요
추운 겨울 날에 먹으면 딱이에요~

It’s tomato based sauce with seafood
It’s my favorite dish here
The tomato sauce tastes almost like tomato soup!
Perfect on a cold winter day!

 

 


연탄삼겹고추장구이 (Pork Belly on Briquette)

고추장삼겹살!
너무 맛있어요!
Who doesn’t love bacon
This is basically bacon with red pepper paste seasoning

가격은 조금 비싼거 같아요
1인분이 3개 나와요
I thought that the prices were a bit on the expensive side
One serving contains 3 pieces of meat

밖에서 먹는 느낌이였어요
It felt like we were eating outside

연탄!
This is the briquette used

photo_2018-01-08_10-24-36.jpg
주문을 하면  앞 쪽에서 불로 한번 구워줘요
불 맛이나요!
When you order, they actually cook it over fire first
This way the meat has the fire taste

테이블에서 조금만 더 익으면 먹어도 되요~
Just cook it a little more at the table and you can eat it!

원래 여기 김치국이 맛있다고 들었어요
우리가 4시즘에 가서 아직 김치국은 준비가 안 되어있어서 못 먹어 봤어요 ㅠ
I heard that the Kimchi Soup here is really good
But because we arrived at 4PM it was still cooking in the back

맛집!
I call this place
“Childhood”

IMG_3717제 베트남 친구들이 자주 가는 곳이에요
음식 맛있어요!
한국 쌀국수와 달라요
육수도 깔끔하고 깊은 맛이에요 ❤。◕‿ ◕。
This is a place where my Vietnamese friends go to
The food is really good
It is unlike Korean pho

여수의 남해생선구이

IMG_0929

맛있겠죠!
여기는 바로 아름다운 여수에 있는 남해 생선구이 입니다!

This is called Southern Sea Baked Fish (translated) located in the beautiful city of Yeosu

IMG_0919

IMG_0955

가격도 저렴해요~
우리는 갈치조림 2인분이랑 고등어 구이 1인분 시켰어요 。 ◕‿◕。
I love the prices here~
We order two servings of boiled hairtail and one serving of grilled mackerel
(You have to order at least two serving of hairtail)

IMG_0931

갈치 말려서 양념한거에요~
This is dried hairtail with seasoning. It’s sweet and perfect with rice.

IMG_0933간.장.게.장은 사랑입니다 ❤
반찬으로 나오는데 하나도 안 짜고 너무 맛있었어요
This is crab that is fermented with soy sauce. It is so good! Not to sweet nor salty.

You get soy bean soup too!

제일 중요한건! 비린내가 하나도 안났어요

Boiled Hairtail
The radish was so good!
I heard that the radish that grows in Yeosu is one of the best in Korea
It wasn’t too spicy nor salty. The seasoning was just right
Most importantly, the fish didn’t smell
(you know that fishy smell you get when the fish is defrosted improperly)
