The most satisfying one-two combination in all of Seoul: Soondubu Jjigae and Jeyuk Bokkeum. If you’re a fan of one or both of these classic dishes, you won’t regret making a visit to Sogongdong Ttukbaeggi Jip 소공동 뿍배기집 (long name, I know!) near City Hall. 😃

Simple, subtle, mellow, light, and refined. These are just a few terms when describing the best thing to come out of North Korea: Naengmyeon 냉면 (Cold Noodles). Thanks to Graham Holliday, author of just-published Eating Korea, some extra research led me to two of the more popular restaurants serving Pyongyang-style naengmyeon. This version is entirely different and takes some getting used to compared to the spicier, richer iterations that most people are accustomed to. But, after several attempts, you begin to understand why some people favor this delicate dish that focuses more on ingredients, primarily buckwheat and beef broth, over artificial flavors. Graham provides his thoughts on Pyongyang Myeonok with an excerpt from the book. goo.gl/JhH2pP

The sharp tang of well-ripened kimchi plus tender, fatty pork pieces can only describe one of my all-time favorite dishes: Kimchi Jjim 김치찜 @ Hanok Jip 한옥집.

Thank you @noodlepie for the wonderful write-up and big congrats on the upcoming book, "Eating Korea."

Here's one of my favorite places for Jeon, pan-fried dishes that really hit the spot on rainy days.

Only one way to cool down from this record-breaking heatwave, so make sure to do it at the right place: Dongah Naengmyun (Itaewon, Seoul)

It's not often you randomly stumble upon one of Korea's oldest hofs (bar) but that's what happened last week at Eulji OB Bear. :)
