When you think of traveling to South Korea, Nami Island always on the top of the list of places that must be visited. Nami Island is one of the best places to visit if you want to see the gorgeous and beautiful autumn foliage. This is our most favorite place and the most memorable moment during our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip last autumn. In this post, we’ll be providing you with details on what you can do and how to get to Nami Island from Seoul.
One of the best spot to enjoy the autumn foliage in Seoul is Ewha Womans University, a prestigious university for female students. The area around the university is full of budget friendly street food, cafes, restaurants, shops, and stores with beautiful trees lined on the street.
It’s quite hard to find a good place to hang out in East Jakarta, but thanks to Mama De Cuisine Cafe & Dining that become a new addition to the modern cafe list in Kalimalang area. It will be a great option when you’re looking for a good place to work, casual dining, or hang out in East Jakarta.
It’s definitively a marker in food history when the Michelin Guide award two Singapore hawkers a star. Besides Liao Fan Hawker Chan, Singapore’s favorite Bak Chor Mee from Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle also given one star in Singapore Michelin Guide 2016.
Character cafés are on the rise in Singapore and adding on to the ever-growing list is the spanking new Gudetama Café Singapore. Officially opening its doors to the public on 30 November 2016, Gudetama Café Singapore serving a myriad of cute Gudetama-themed dishes that will make your hearts melt.
If you have been following the Michelin Guide Singapore, one of the most striking names besides Hills Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle on the inaugural 2016 list is Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle. This humble hawker stall at Chinatown Complex literally received stardom when it was awarded one Michelin star in the Singapore Michelin Guide 2016 and become the world’s cheapest Michelin meal.
Korean BBQ is a must when in Korea. One of our best findings in #FoodInLoveKOREA is Korean BBQ at Saemul Sikdang / New Village Restaurant (새마을식당). We visited their branch at Hongdae, an area which known as a trendy cafe and nightlife area for students and is well known for its indie scene, urban street arts, and underground musician.
Fried chicken is undoubtedly one of the most common food that you can find in Seoul. There are a lot of fried chicken chain with their various specialties. It’s also very hard to find a chicken that clearly outshines the rest because the industry there is so well developed. Most of them offer Chimaek (Fried Chicken and Beer), but we found Chicken & Curry Goon (치킨앤 카레군) in Hongdae area that offers a different style of Korean Fried Chicken.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Jakarta – Diponegoro is a 5-star hotel located in Cikini area, Central Jakarta. Situated at Jalan Pegangsaan Timur and literally near Cikini train station, the car entrance was quite small from the road. But after you get into the hotel, you’ll be surprised. It is spacious, homey, and comfortably-inviting.
In the super rapidly changing Korea, we get to see new trends and new items every day, including their street food. During our #FoodInLoveKOREA trip, one of our best findings is Steak & Beer in a cup from “Me? Steak!” in Hongdae area. These “Street Steakhouses” that sell properly grilled steak in a cup is the recently rising dining trend in Korea, just like soft serve milk ice cream not long ago.
Baked cheese tart craze started happening in Indonesia the last few years. A lot of cake and pastry chain, ranging from Japan, where this baked cheese tart comes from to Indonesian local chain compete to offers their baked cheese tart to win customers’ hearts. To join the cheese tart scene, Tokiosei, a new concept by Sour Sally, becomes a new addition to Indonesian market with their signature Black Yuzu Cheese Tart.
