20151201_202258

A new restaurant just opened up on my street specializing in lamb skewers on a cool rotisserie grill. Fun and delicious! SCREAMfmLondon

I could not resist the strange fried cheese on a stick while wandering the streets of Myeongdong. It was surprisingly appetizing and mozzarella-y. SCREAMfmLondon

This summer, YG Entertainment launched its first restaurant. Samgeori Butchers in Hongdae has since been visited by YG artists such as Psy, Big Bang, iKON and Winner. The menu features delicious thick-cut pork served with a variety of tasty dipping sauces, pork fried rice, jjigae and more. SCREAMfmLondon

Check out this atmospheric, candle-lit burger at Burgeroom181 in Songdo. The selection there is a little lacking, but this was the best “cheese halo” I’ve ever had. It was not, however, the best burger I’ve ever had. It’s a good place for a solid, middle-of-the-road burger. SCREAMfmLondon

Food: Bibimbap, gamjatang and more

This delicious dolsot bibimbap is found in Insa-dong. The stone pot is hot enough to cook a raw egg and make the rice at the bottom brown and crispy. Bibimbap is a force to be reckoned with. SCREAMfmLondon

Very popular melon bingsu. The melon is hollowed out and filled with ice cream, pieces of cheesecake, shaved ice and condensed milk. It is served with a hefty knife you can use to slice the melon shell and eat it. SCREAMfmLondon

Gamjatang is a spicy pork bone soup: this one is made with pork spine, vegetables and hot peppers. Very labor-intensive to remove the meat from the bones, but very rewarding. SCREAMfmLondon

Found a new favorite barbeque restaurant specializing in perfect, thick cuts of pork. Tasty to eat with a sprinkle of salt, a drop of gochujang and some roasted garlic. SCREAMfmLondon

Cheese berry bingsu at Caffé Tiamo. It’s a combination of finely-shaved ice, ice cream, condensed milk, frozen berries, macarons and a chocolate-dipped piece of waffle cone. It is served with extra syrup on the side in case it is not sweet enough. SCREAMfmLondon

Softree has been a pretty trendy ice cream shop in Seoul for the past couple of years. The store is famous for its creamy soft serve made from organic milk and natural honey toppings complete with a chip of real honeycomb. They also sell a squid ink ice cream! SCREAMfmLondon

Strawberry bingsu from Caffé Tiamo. Pretty similar to the cheese berry bingsu. Also, they recognized me and gave me a frequent-buyers’ punchcard because I kept coming back. SCREAMfmLondon

Freshly-made Belgian waffle topped with whipped cream, powdered sugar and every type of fruit you can imagine. SCREAMfmLondon

May 4: Korean street food, nachos and more

20150423_194203

Korean-style donkkaseu with rice, vegetables, fried pork cutlet, fried shrimp and egg. As always, served with delicious soup, kimchi and danmuji. As always, served with less delicious macaroni salad. SCREAMfmLondon

Street food in Myeongdong is plentiful, fantastic and super inexpensive. Sausage and tteokbokki is a winning combination. SCREAMfmLondon

Awesome do-it-yourself shabu-shabu in Incheon. SCREAMfmLondon
