Itaewon Eats

by Grace Ko in , ,

Itaewon seems to be "our spot" here in Seoul. For a multitude of reasons (including but not limited to restaurants, shopping, Ben's Cookies, chiropractor), I find myself there time and time again. But hey, I'm not complaining. 

With a few friends, Y and I decided to check out Southside Parlor. And are we glad we did! Their cocktails are tasty and unique, a concoction of distinct flavors. And their sandwiches and tacos are mouthwatering- a special plug for their pulled pork sandwich! 

We also recently went to Craftworks, a home of craft-brewed beers named after the mountains of Korea! 

Y & I had a lunch date the following day at Buddha's Belly, a Thai restaurant. The sun was out and we enjoyed our pad thai, pad see yew and Thai iced tea by the wide-open windows. We soaked in some much needed vitamin D and reminisced of our lunch dates in Manhattan.

Thank you, Itaewon for your eclectic cuisine and for giving us a taste of "home" when we miss it.
