Searching for a place with Italian style pizza that tastes good is quite difficult, especially in a city like Daejeon in South Korea. However. Nuovo Napoli was a pleasant surprise. I ordered the Rucola Prosciutto pizza (right) and a Caesar salad (pictured below is just 1/2 of the salad). To the left, a friend ordered the Diavola. Both were very tastey. Enough for me to want to order another pizza! They also serve other items like pasta but I’m always craving pizza more than pasta. I like the fact that the pizzas are made in a wood-fired oven. If you’re looking for Italian style pizza, this is the closest thing to it that I’ve found in Daejeon. 🙂
I’m sure many of you have eaten this salad before. I had this kind of salad for the first time a few days ago at a korean-Italian fusion restaurant called Team Cook in Daejeon South Korea. I loved how simple and light it was so I decided to recreate it at home. Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, almond slices, dried cranberries (a.k.a. crasins), and ricotta chesse dressed with balsamic glaze. Bon Appetit! 🙂
I always need access to a good burger place wherever I go. What can I say, it’s the American in me. I’m in Daejeon South Korea and there is a place that claims to have “the best burgers in Daejeon.” That’s a pretty bold statement. So I took a trip to House Grill to find out for myself!
With so many burgers to choose from, I chose the burger with the chef’s name: Brian’s Burger ₩10,000. It was topped with an egg, a slice of pineapple, grilled onions, cheese and teriyaki sauce. Pretty good burger! I was really hungry that day so I also bought a pork cutlet (donkatsu 돈까수) ₩7,000. I liked the soup that came with it too (I think it was curry but my friend thinks it’s chili).
I loved everything I ate! The R&B Christmas music playing in the background won me over. I found a burger place. A super small, quaint, hole-in-the wall place. Yongmun station exit 2, walk straight for a couple blocks, make a left at Paris Baguette into the hallway, and it’s at the end of the hall. I will be coming back for more burgers and a philly cheesesteak! 😋🍔🍟
