This is my last time in Seoul before I move to Germany. I wanted to try as many things as I could. Unfortunately, a lot of shops were closed due to Korean Thanksgiving Chuseok (추석). But here are some places that were open. Mainly foreigner owned.
Mr. Kebab in Itaewon.
I really enjoy Turkish food. Even though this place is a fast food chain, it’s still good. I bought the falafel wrap and baklava. This was my first time having baklava and I am now a baklava fan!
I had heard about McCoy’s from A Fat Girl’s Food Guide blog. The food she ate looked so good that I wanted to try it myself when I went back to Itaewon (Noksapyeong Station). The menu constantly changes so I couldn’t indulge in what she ate. I was on a foodie budget so I ordered the cheapest meal on the menu: Chicken and a sangria. I enjoyed the chicken but the Garlic Herb and Honey mustard sauce I had with it didn’t complement the other flavors on the plate. I should’ve tried a different sauce. This is a good date spot. Dim lights, nice music and decent food. I’d come back with a date if I had one. 🙂
Billy Angel Cake
I was just walking around and saw Billy Angel Cake near Hongdae at Hapjeong. There was an dvertisement of Carrot Cake. This is a chain restaurant. At first I wanted some good carrot cake. But when I walked in, there were so many cakes to choose from, I changed my mind. Each slice of cake is roughly ₩7,000. I wanted to try something new. I had an Earl Grey cake at an airport once and I loved how delicious the tea tastes in a cake (tea lover!). So I tried the Black Chiffon Tea Cake and the Carrot Cake here at Billy’s. It was very pleasant. Not to sweet, not to bland. I enjoyed it. I will try making cakes with tea in the future.
Milky Bee and Gelato
So this place is pretty popular. I didn’t know why so I went there in Myeongdong. Their most popular ice cream is the honey comb. I sampled a taste of the honey comb from a fellow traveler but it was too pure and planty for me. It was very strong and overpowering. I bought myself the granola. This was much better. The creamy texture of the ice cream and granola paired well.
