With all the great eats in Korea, Aaron would be 300 lbs by now (er, 136kg) if Seoul had any fewer stairs. His only disappointments are the dearth of craft beer and proper baked goods.
The craft beer scene is improving, but on the baking front, he is actively working to recreate the cookies, breads and other treats he misses. His efforts will be shared here.

In Seoul, with dozens, sometimes hundreds of restaurants lining each street, how do you choose?
We‘re here to help! Every week, out of the hundreds of restaurants we‘ve tried, we present one of our favorites.
Sometimes, though, there are still some cravings we can‘t satisfy. In those cases, we roll up our sleeves and do our best to recreate the dish in our own kitchen.
Craving something yourself? Let us know! We‘ll track it down. If we can‘t find a faithful representation of the dish, we‘ll get to work in our test kitchen.
We receive no compensation of any kind for our reviews. We post positive reviews only; we are not food critics, but guides in your quest to find great food.
