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).
It’s been a month since I left Seoul. Time to review some of things that I like from there.
There are few of coffee times that I (went) for the last days before leaving Korea.
Here in Seoul, so many kinds of cafe exist with varieties of theme. Dog and cat cafe are the two theme cafe that famous in Seoul). My daughter wanted to go to dog cafe instead of cat cafe. I think she is still having the trauma from the cat bite back in my home. We paid a visit to one of famous dog cafe in Seoul, this one called Bau House dog cafe. Why dog cafe? because why not? We would never see this kind of cafe in our country.
This place is located close to hapjeong station (line 2 and 6). The place is quite huge in a basement. There are two part of this place, first one is smaller part for small dogs, and the other part is the big part for more bigger dogs. Dog owner could also come and bring their own dog just to play around with the other residents here.
The beverages here are blah and bit expensive, but it compensate the budget they need to spend to take care of those dogs, so it’s OK. We can also buy dog food here so the furry hair friends would love you even more.
I spent about more than two hours. It was not easy for Tanya at the beginning, she was afraid of the dogs. Took a while for her to get along, but finally she was successful in collecting the courage to play around. I guess we need to come here again once before we leave Korea. This place is fun!

Me, afraid of dog
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.
Will it be my last autumn in Korea?

Spending afternoon in the late summer is a perfect time. People there would encourage themselves to enjoy coffees or beer with the addition of some delicacies of beautiful cakes or pizza. Clothing lines are busy as well as the coffee shops brew their fresh beans.
