New Art: 'Ascending Man'

6 Feb

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists… it is real… it is possible…it’s yours.” ~ Atlas Shrugged

BHC Chicken N’ Beer

25 Jan

Checing out #BHC for their chicken ‘n beer menu! It’s quite tasty! The owner recommended this chicken – spicy sweet n’ sour. Delicious with a good fry! It was a really fun restaurant, kind of like a local pub. ❤ If you’re in #Seoul, give it a try!

I tried the one in Chungmuro — Take Exit 2, turn right and walk a while. It’s on the corner with a few steps leading up and the a door with stairs going down to the lower floors. You can check out their other locations too!

South Korean Mung Bean Pancakes

23 Jan

As proclaimed food appreciators, we had to test out the Korean Street food. Mung Bean and pork mung bean pancakes! Tried the pork one and it was pretty good! Kind of like a hashbrown texture? Very onion and potatoesque 👍These pancakes were cooked fresh at the street stall in Namdaemun, Seoul. 🇰🇷

Have you ever tried mung bean? What’s your thoughts?!?
