SushiSho_octopus

My friend and I were here on a Tuesday night and it was packed. The resto is really small, only 14 seats! I have to say say that this was the best meal I’ve ever had in Sweden! We lucked out and had seats at the bar so we could... more

I was so stoked to try their noodles as I had dined here once a year ago and I still remember that meal with fond memories! Alas, I should’ve remembered my number one rule – always eat food made by locals. These guys are Swedes and they’re trying to make... more

We were at Volt last Friday, the same day that the review by Jonas Cramby was published in Stockholm’s Metro. I don’t know if this accounted for the restaurant being quite full or if it was a Friday night. The clientele was a mix of young and old. Onto the... more

sushiYama - 8 piece sashimi

This is a sushi chain but I was suitably impressed when I ate here 2 weeks ago. There are 3 locations in Stockholm alone and also all over Sweden, 16 in total. A colleague ate here and raved about it so I had to try it out as well. A... more

Myeongdong Kyoja

Myeongdong Kyoja (명동교자) has been serving knife cut noodles, kalguksu, for 40 years now and it’s very popular amongst tourists and locals alike. We were there at lunch time and choose their most popular dish, kalguksu with what looked like ground pork. The bowls of noodle soup came within minutes of... more

Cookin’ Nanta performance – review

Nanta

Since we’re food obsessed, we had to check out this show. It’s played 3 times daily at 2 different theatres in Seoul plus one in Jeju and has also been played in Broadway. I won’t go into too much details about the storyline but suffice it to say that it’s... more

koryeo

One dish on my list of foods to try in Korea was samyetang or ginseng chicken. It’s supposed to be the best cure for a cold. The ginseng used here is 4 years old and the chickens aren’t older than 49 days, ie the best qualities of ingredients. I decided on... more

Buldak or fire chicken in Seoul – review

By: | 0 Comments | On: June 9, 2014 | Category : Korean, Reviews, Savories

Buldak

Fire chicken, tummy ache inducing food due to the fiery heat from excessive chilies in the dish, is not authentic Korean food and apparently just one of the current fads. As we’re both chiliheads, we couldn’t pass up this opportunity to test ourselves! We were recommended Hongcho buldak (홍초불닭) by... more

Ongo

I found this school via Tripadvisor and signed up for the Korean barbecue class. The class was 3 well spent hours learning how to make Korean barbecue. We were 2 couples = 4 people with one instructor and 2 assistants. Because we had our very own efficient assistant, we didn’t get... more

Noryangjin fish market in Seoul – review

Noryangjin

We saved the best for last, it seems. Having had a not so successful meal at Goraebul due to hubby’s squeamishness, we concentrated on mostly on bbq and fried chicken until our last day. Getting to Noryangjin was a cinch as the station has the same name and the market... more
