Petra Palace Seoul: Falafels in Korea!

Some things are meant to be. Like second chances. They come around, staring you in the eye, even when you don’t know they exist.

On my last walkabout in Seoul, I found a restaurant– Petra Palace– that made falafels amongst other mediterranean dishes, but my experience was not so great. The falafels lacked character, flavor and spice. When I take a bite of a falafel, I want to inhale the Middle East!

Review: Middle Eastern eats at Petra Restaurant in Itaewon

Within the past few months I’ve successfully satiated various comfort food cravings- from hummus, soy chicken nuggets and edamame; however, it’s the falafel that’s remained elusive. My deep-fried chickpea craving has become a delight gone unfulfilled. Thanks to Seoul Eats and their post, “Vegetarian restaurants in Seoul”, I finally got to cross falafels off my list (well, sorta…).

Review: Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner at Buy the Book Cafe, Daegu

I realize I’ve a bad habit of underestimating Daegu. These days, I’ve been discovering a small community and niche spots where I can get together with like-minded people for vegan food, art and yoga workouts.

Last night was another one of those nights of goodness at another Daegu dining spot which has me perked up to visiting more often. Nestled in one of the crazy offshoots of Daegu’s Bandwoldang dizzying maze, perched on the 4th floor of a building housing a Mr. Pizza, a restaurant (called New York) and a billiards room, sits Buy the Book Cafe.

Review: Daegu Biennale 2010

Crunchy art. It’s the last thing I expected Daegu to produce. To me, crunchy art is very satisfying- a tasty and thought-provoking bit, that you must chew on in order to appreciate it’s flavored variety and texture. When I first heard Daegu was having a Biennale, my first impulse was to dismiss it. I’m glad I didn’t. The exhibition blew me away international works that were witty, gravity-defying, wicked, romantic and… crunchy.

Chocksan Spa: Naked in a Mineral Bath at Mt Seoraksan

We arrived in Sochko at Chocksan Spa around 11PM. The spa had already closed, so we checked into our room. A small room, there was no traditional bed (well no, let me take that back)…there was a traditional yo (a Korean floor bed, where comforters are put down for padding), and just enough floorspace for a five-person squeeze. The room was well-sized for either the standard four-person Korean family or a midget. We got a coffee table with a hotpot, some cups and a hotel refrigerator stocked with items “for purchase”. While the latter is common to hotels in the

The Coffee Prince Cafe in Hongdae & the notion of a Korean breakfast

I was in Seoul for my birthday weekend with my friend, Chance, when the urge for Sunday morning brunch struck. Our cafe requirements? “Funky, trendy, Seoul-ish” . But then the same conundrum that always arises around food, did. What to eat?… no, WHERE.
