청춘연가 🍲

This is a restaurant that specializes in pork and budae jigae aka army soup (부대찌개). It’s located in Migeum (미금) in Bundang (분당). The price was pretty good and the best part is rice and ramen are free refill!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

8,000 won per person
청춘부대찌개 which translate Youth Army Soup, which is meant to mean that it is a nostalgic taste from our youth.

You can add different sides for extra cost but rice and ramen is free refill!

IMG_4095

Very simple side dishes since the soup already has different ingredients.

IMG_4107

It wasn’t too salty and wasn’t too spicy. Just right.

엉터리생고기 🥓

All you can eat pork and doenjangjigae (된장찌개) for 11,000 won per person! The quality of meat is not too bad. This restaurant is part of a chain! There are multiple ones throughout Bundang and Seoul. Unfortunately, the one we went to, I think, is gone.

IMG_4060
IMG_4062

All you can eat 3cm thick pork cuts, bean sprout and kimchi, and soup!

IMG_4051
img_4049.jpg
IMG_4036

Basically saying not to put the heat to the highest since the pork can burn.

IMG_4041

Main menu is the all you can eat pork and soup for 11,000 won. You can order rice for an extra 1,000 won. If everyone in the table orders rice, then it’s free refill as well!

The side menu says theres also raw meat (육회), cold buckwheat noodles (냉면), steamed eggs (계란찜). They also have soju and beer for 4,000 won. If you want a translation of the menu, message us!

It also says that if 4 people come in as one table, they will give you free 1.25L Coke.

IMG_4039

Translation (Summary):


How to Enjoy to the 100%

– Basically says that the first serving is given but the customers have to get the refills for themselves.

– When paying, you have to remember the table number.

– Do not raise the heat level to 3, the highest, because the pork will burn and set off the alarms.

– Only pork should be on the grill. For kimchi and bean sprouts, use container provided to cook.

– To prevent wasted food, only take little by little.

– Drinks and side menu should be ordered through the staff but water and such is prepared for self service.

IMG_4034

The basic setup that is provided when you enter the restaurant. Refills are self service.

IMG_4043

The different pork meats!

IMG_4044

Beansprouts and kimchi is to be cooked in this container and not directly on the grill.

IMG_4047

Doenjang Jigae that is to be cooked over the grill.

I didn’t get to take pictures of the self-service bar but it’s well organized so you can take what you need.


Agalico Itaewon 아가리코 이태원 🍷

It’s a nice wine bar or tapas place that I went with a friend. This one is the second store! We had vin chaud and some dishes on a cold day. The food is actually pretty good! It was quite empty when we went. Look for the short video at the bottom!

UFO Taco Garlic Octopus (8,000 won)

This was so, so good. The octopus was not dry at all! It was very juicy and there was a lot of garlic and parmesan cheese on top. Plus, the plating is so cute. I thought they were escargots in the beginning.

Assorted Tapas (14,800 won)

I honestly felt like the price was too high for what was given.

Bolognese (11,000 won)

It was very good! Highly recommend. The egg on top was just perfect and went well with the whole dish. You can see us picking at it the most in the video below.

Slurp 🍜

The best time to visit Slurp is on a cold, rainy day. It is a small restaurant with a few tables. There was a line when we went. Probably because it was chilly outside and everyone wanted something warm!

After you’re done eating, you take your tray to the drop-off before leaving.

Rosehill is located on the 10th floor of Hyundai Department Store (COEX)
We had the Korean Beef Shabu, which runs around $34 per person.
We went around 2PM, which was great because everyone who came for lunch already left. The restaurant was pretty quiet.

It’s really thick and creamy
It’s not the traditional carbonara you will see in Italy

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)

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

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

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)

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

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)

혹시나 탈날까봐 생굴은 굴전으로 바꿔 달라고 했어요
We ordered the set that comes with steamed oysters, oyster pancakes, and raw oysters.
But we asked for the raw oysters to be substituted with the pancakes JUST IN CASE since its not the season for oysters yet

굴구이(사실 찜 같아요)은 처음 먹어봐요
전 생굴이 제일 맛있다고 생각했어요
원지 익히면 맛이 없고 뻑뻑해질거 같았는데
굴이 탱글탱글해요
초고추장에 콕! 찍어 먹으면 너.무.맛.있.어.요.
아직도 그 맛을…

Oh..my…
I thought oysters are best served raw but I was so wrong.
These steamed oysters were juicy and soft. It literally melted in my mouth.
I still can’t get over the taste. It was so, so good.

IMG_0816후시으로 죽 멋었어요!
굴만 먹으면 배고프지 않을까 생각했는데 굴이 엄청 커서 배가 금방 불렀어요
너무 배불러서 죽을 다 못 멋었어요 ㅠ

Nothing like porridge to finish everything off.
At first I was doubtful that oysters could be enough to make me full.
But I was wrong. Again.
The oysters were so big and juicy that we all got full off of it.
We couldn’t finish the poor porridge.


MoMo Cafe (모모카페)

오늘은 판교에 있는 모모카페!
판교 코트야드 메리어트에 있는 뷔페입니다~
자주 가는 곳이에요~
크리스마스는 너무 바쁠거 같아서 그 다음 날에 갔어요!
6시 예약이어서 시간 마춰 가니까 사람이 없었어요.
음식도 금방 나와서 보기도 좋고 맛도 좋았어요!
(◕^^◕)

Today is MoMo Cafe in Marriott! Got to love buffets.
This is a place that we visit often for breakfast and occasionally for dinner.
Since it would be packed on Christmas, we decided to go the day after!
The reservation was for 6PM, which is the time that I recommend!
They just opened so there were no guests and the food was fresh and untouched!
(◕^^◕)

IMG_1624뷔페는 작지도 않고 너무 크지도 않아요! 딱 적당한거 같아요.
저녁으로 시푸드과 고기가 나와요!
크리스마스 행사로 와인 한병이랑 스파크링 뭐터 하나 받았어요~
(대신 가격도 조금 올렸어요)

<평소 가격>
조식: 31,000원
시푸드 저녁: 75,000원

It’s a decent size buffet, not too small nor big.
The menu at night is seafood and meat.
I guess it can be considered as “surf and turf” night.
As a Christmas event, they were giving out a bottle of wine and sparkling water.
(Of course the price was that much higher as well)

<Typical Prices>
Breakfast: 31,000 Won (~$29.14)
Seafood Dinner: 75,000 Won (~$70.50)
