Food Korea Seoul

SEOUL: East Dulwich Café, Gangnam

One of the things I miss most about living in Seoul is the plethora of beautifully-styled cafes and coffee shops. Although I made a conscious effort to experience as many as I could, I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface! Embarrassingly, it took me a ridiculously long time to visit East Dulwich Café, …

KOREAN FOOD: Donkastu 돈가스

As my departure draws ever closer, I have slowly realised how much I will actually miss Korean food. Obviously not ALL of it (anything with kimchi in it for, instance!), but definitely some of it.

KOREAN FOOD: Gimbap

I will admit I am not the biggest fan of Korean food. If you’ve read any of my posts, this is pretty clear! However, there are a few things that I love and will miss. Gimbap is the thing I love most! As I suffer from a gluten-intolerance, it can be hard to find snacks …

Korean Food: Dak Galbi

On my bid to experience more Korean food, I am always asking people good things to try. Things generally that don’t involve kimchi! Dak galbi is often recommended and is something I really enjoy. I have now tried it a few times and would say it’s one of my favourite Korean foods. If you are …
