Cary’s Downtown Chowdown

After escaping the rain on Saturday’s opening of the Cary downtown park, I ventured to the Downtown Chowdown on Sunday which featured twenty-nine food trucks and vendors. It was the perfect breezy day to sit out in front of the amphitheater, listen to music, and munch on some great food. I started out with Gussy’s…

The New One-Stop Korean Mart in Cary

As some of you may know, I recently came back to the States after teaching English in South Korea for over three years.  At first, getting used to American life was a challenge. There were never very many Korean restaurants in North Carolina and I was bummed that I wouldn’t be able to eat my…

Cafe Coin de Rue in Wonju

Last week, I had the privilege of eating a scrumptious Mexican style dinner at a new cafe in Musil-dong. With its delicious food and inviting atmosphere, Cafe Coin de Rue is the perfect place to wind down after a busy day. Upon entering the cafe, you’ll feel a unique vibe that just makes you want to sprawl…

Myeongdong Burger Joint

Before Christmas, I went shopping in Myeongdong and decided to drop into Burger B at Noon Square for a little American food therapy. Burger B is a chain restaurant that specializes in American style burgers, fries, and milkshakes. The pictures on the menu look superb, but how do these burgers stack up to the ones…

Get groceries delivered straight to your door using Gmarket!

I’ve been using Gmarket to purchase my Homeplus goods for quite some time and I think it’s fitting that I include this information in my blog. Buying food using Gmarket is quite simple if you’ve already set up your account (I believe that you can use the English Gmarket site to set up an account…

Sweet Oak Kitchen and Smokehouse

It’s no secret that I’m a frequent visitor at Sweet Oak in Wonju. The food is just so delicious! They specialize in American style barbecue and have some lovely cocktails as well. This time, I opted for the single pulled pork platter and it was wonderful. If you’ve been to Sweet Oak before, you’ll notice…

Cocina Mexicana in Wonju

Living in a small city in Korea can sometimes be a drag when there aren’t a lot of foreign food options. I’m lucky enough to live in Wonju, which is slowly improving in terms of different types of cuisines. While browsing Facebook, I came upon a review for Cocina Mexicana and decided to give it…

Shake Shack!

I’ve been so excited about Shake Shack coming to Korea and I finally got to try it last week! When I lived in Manhattan, I loved Shake Shack and was curious to see if the new Gangnam location lived up to the original. When we arrived at half past eleven, there was already a line…

A Sushi Buffet For Everyone

Last weekend, HJ and I found a new gem of a buffet. Qoo Qoo (pronounced koo koo) is a wonderful sushi buffet located in Wonju. I’m not too much of a sushi or sashimi person, but this place definitely has something for everyone. As soon as you walk in, there is a price list. It…

All You Can Drink Wine

A few weeks ago, a few friends and I enjoyed a tasty wine buffet. Before coming to Korea, the thought of unlimited wine for a reasonable price seemed out of this world. I came across this trend while searching for things to do in Seoul, and decided to give it a try! Most wine buffets…
