Welcome to Seoul Taste!
Posted May 27, 2011 by Aaron Namba
Okay, so our site has been live for over a month now, but since we are launching our blog today, I thought the first post should still be a welcome. So here we go...
Introducing Seoul Taste, a project launched by Annie & Aaron Namba to unite food lovers with the best Seoul has to offer, whether it be from a restaurant or from the kitchen.
For now, we are working toward this goal by posting a new restaurant review every Tuesday and a new recipe every Friday. The idea is to help you find new lunch/dinner spots during the week, and provide a "weekend project" for home cooks.
One caveat on the restaurant reviews: Since we live in Gangnam, most of the restaurant reviews will be in the 강남역 area, at least initially. (But for most of you, we're thinking this will not really be a huge problem.) As we grow, we will begin to include more restaurants from other popular spots like Hongdae, Sinchon, Samcheong-dong, Insadong, etc. And someday, maybe even Itaewon.
And one more thing you should know about our reviews: This site is not meant to be an exhaustive collection of all the restaurants we've tried. Instead, we aim to build a collection of just the best, the ones we feel comfortable recommending. Thus, you should generally never see a rating lower than 3/5 in any category. Additionally, a review may be dropped from the site if we feel quality has declined to the point where we can no longer recommend the place.
Please let us know what you think of our project! If you have any suggestions or questions for us, have at it in the comments below.
