Spent the Friday evening at Gang Nam Station grubbing, eye shopping, and people watching which once again confirmed what a dynamic place Seoul is. Love how everything opens late and that there are interesting people everywhere, anytime, all the time.
The cafe culture here is just beyond imaginable in Seoul. There is a cute cafe after another everywhere in the city- it’s just unfortunate that drinks are more expensive than food most of the time, but that’s not enough of a reason for me to give up my tea and sweets…
And the food…
Five layer barbecued pork and naeng myun at Kim Don Ee (김돈이) at Shin Non Hyun Station. Did I mention that it’s proven really really difficult to live as a vegetarian in Korea? For someone who was never a big meat-eater, I’m noticing that living here is slowly changing my preference along with eating habits. While I can’t decide whether I like that or not yet, what I know for sure is that pork has never tasted so good (but that only refers to the kind I eat in above photo which is a special kind of meat from Jeju that’s never frozen).
It’ s been pouring all day and will continue to do so until tomorrow evening. Strangely enough, I’ve started to like the sound of the rain.
