I think I’ll start to rewind all the times hat I had in Korea especially in Seoul to keep my self remember the stories that created from living abroad there.

I always like Mexican food. In Seoul, plenty of good Mexican restaurants especially in Itaewon area. The first time I tasted Mexican food was in Korea and started to like them. Having the real Mexican food in Mexican restaurant in America gave me another better experience. These are some pictures from my last visit to Mexican food (Tomatillo Itaewon). Too bad it was still cold, otherwise horchata would make it perfect. Had a visit of this place with a friend who is currently living in UK to find his passion of life (right? :P). It was closed with a cafe visit (of course).

 

Life between Ikseon-dong Alleys

Ikseon-dong is one of Seoul’s oldest area where you can find a hanok neighborhood. It is located in the center of Seoul, Jongno. This area has started to become hip between youngsters. Huge renovation to most of the hanok houses has turned this neighborhood into bar, cafe, restaurant, and cultural spaces while they keep the traditional sense. People might take some traditional tea after having lunch pasta in between the alleys.

I strolled some alleys last Sunday with drizzling rain.

Some accessories. This place is like a temporary room (but solid enough) that they built stick to the outside wall of someone’s house, and resulted in very unique concept.

Even there is a space for family

This was our spot, right next to the counter and huge window to see the view and falling snow: perfect!
