Wine & Dine
Of course, I enjoy the intricacies of Michelin star dining. The short list of my favourite fine dining establishments in Seoul can be found in my About page. In this post, however, I will be talking about places that aren’t on that list.
Bills is my favourite place to brunch, though they are great at any time of the day. They have three locations: Gwanghwamun, Gangnam and Jamsil.
As a vegetarian I can’t help but feel more at home at businesses that caters specifically to my dietary choice. Plant is one of my favourite vegan restaurants, located in Itaewon area. They have a varied menu to choose from, from burgers to pasta to healthier bowls. They also have a second location also in Itaewon that is more focused on desserts.
After having a satisfying dinner at Plant, I like to walk over to LORD, an excellent bar in Itaewon. The ambiance is great, the music is usually good, and it’s not very crowded even when the rest of Itaewon is packed. But most importantly, they have amazing cocktails.
My current food obsession is malatang and mala xiang guo. They are extremely spicy and certainly an acquired taste, but quite addictive once you get into it. I know quite a few places all over Seoul that serve them, so if you dare, ask me about it.
We can attend performances and exhibitions at Seoul Arts Center or Sejong Center for Performance Arts. I love attending orchestra and ballet performances. I also adore Gangdong Arts Center. It’s smaller and more local, and
I also frequent Boogie Woogie, a live jazz venue. The performance is never not phenomenal, and it is a very relaxing atmosphere.
Lotte World Adventure is one of world’s few amusement theme parks that are located in an urban city. You can experience the thrilling rides without having to drive hours outside of the city and back! Plus, much of the park is indoors so we can enjoy ourselves even when the weather is bad.
There’s also a water park in Seoul, not too far from Yeouido area. We can have fun at the swimming pool or relax at the spa. Plus, you get to see me in a bikini!
