Not a ramen expert by any stretch of the imagination but did live in Japan for 5 years and ate my fair share. After trying to find Craftworks Brewpub in Itaewon (closed and gone) we saw that the line up had momentarily disappeared from when...More

Menyasandaime has a few locations around Korea (I've personally been to the ones in Busan and Hongdae) and they always deliver. It's not just for show that the menus are primarily in Japanese (the font size for the English and Korean can make it a...More

This place is so yummy, I had pork ramen and gyoza. It did not disappoint. It was so tasty, the broth was amazing. And the pork was so tender it literally melted in my mouth. I was talking about this for weeks after we had...More

I love this restaurant. This is truly the best japanese ramen house in Seoul! I am a bit picky when it comes to food, but ramen here is really nice. I think most staff here are japanese.

Alright people. It take about an hour and 30 to get to Hongdae from where I live and there are no direct buses or subway so it's super complicated. Menya Sandaime is the only reason why I go to Hongdae. Japanese employees greet you in...More

It's not easy finding good ramen in Korea. There are 3 or more of this chain around Seoul. They make some of the best tonkotsu ramen in Seoul (which isn't saying much but still, not bad) The broth has always been a bit salty but...More

Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic
neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s
top art school. From its assortment of murals to the
occasional amateur street performances, creativity and
expression make up the wild and beating heart of
vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends
at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one
of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets
