|Another outdated post ㅋㅋㅋ|
20 Nov 2013.
Emily and I went for dinner at 보스바비큐(Clarke Quay).
|There was a company event going on and we saw many Koreans inside.|
GOOD!!! Makes me feel at home ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ
|Spoilt for choices.....|
Can we have allllllllllllllllllllllll??????
We ordered 된장 찌개 Doenjang Jjigae.Emily took her soup and I ate my soup with rice ㅋㅋㅋ
The soup was delicious but we felt the prawns were slightly overcooked and not very fresh.
BTW, there were 4 prawns in it.
|Here comes our fried chicken and seafood pancake 해물파전 ^^|
Thumbs up for the fried chicken!!!
We couldn't have enough of it 냠냠 ^^
| 해물파전 Seafood pancake was a disappointment.|
The prawns and squids were chopped into small pieces and too much flour used.
Complimentary sweet corns came as a surprise towards the end of the meal. The waiter did not inform us that this was complimentary. He put it on our table, smiled and walked off. Both of us love sweet corns and this was delicious ^^
|Many online reviews stated that its pricey to eat here. |
We totally agreed. We came becos we had a Groupon voucher.
However, we decided that we might be back even without having any Groupon deals becos service was good and we liked the ambiance.
It was about 11.20am when I got on the Arex. Its always so depressing to leave my second home. I look forward to be back again. I look forward to see 재 again. At about 11.41am, I received a call that made my day ^^ So happy and thankful to hear from him again before leaving my beloved Korea. Although I did not expect this call but it means so much to me. 정말 고마워요. 네 I miss you so much already.
|I checked in my luggage and went to the tax refund counter becos I still need to have my tax free forms validated. OMGggg....super long queue...|
|Can I use this??|
A tourist was trying to figure out how to use this and approached a staff who was standing around.
After some communication, the tourist was advised by the staff to join the queue.
I am not sure why though.
Omggg....another super long queue. This is the tax refund claim counter inside the transit. You don't have to come here if you have claimed back your cash at downtown. You only need to queue once to validate your tax free forms at the tax refund counter mentioned in the above picture.
Remember I did not managed to claim my tax refund from Global Tax Free(Orange logo) at Myeongdong? Yeah cos I did not have my Visa with me. I had 4000 won to claim back from Global Tax Free. Hence, if I want my 4000 won back, I will need to join this queue. Oh...forget it. The queue was too long.
However, it is not always long queue here. I passed by this counter again after I finished shopping. There was only one person in the queue, so I went in to claim back my 4000 won ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ I am so money minded huh?? Hahahaa there's no queue, so why not? Such a waste not to claim back the cash when its so easy to claim back.
(Just fyi, Asiana has a partnership with Unicef, whereby flight passengers are encouraged to donate coins or even spare currencies to UNICEF programmes helping children in over 150 countries around the world. I think there should be a few other major airline carriers doing the same.)
|I went to the Asiana Lounge becos I had a free voucher to eat there.|
Not hungry but I went there to take a look.
I came here during my first solo trip *wink
|I found myself a seat by the window.|
There were ramyeon, fried rice, sandwiches, bread, assorted croissants, spaghetti and mini salad bar.
They had a good variety in beverages, such as milk, juices, coffee, tea etc.
The spread was actually better than the one I had at Changi Airport Premier Lounge.
|Oh! Saw this cultural performance again.|
|I woke up with a craving for 김밥!|
Most of the eateries including Isaac Toast near the guest house were closed on Sundays.
Therefore, I walked down to Sinchon for 마포만두.
Yeah. 마포만두 again.
This branch was near Sinchon Hyundai Department.
If I did not remember wrongly, the nearest subway station was Sinchon Station, exit 1.
|Menu is available in English and Chinese translations for this branch.|
|On my way back to the guest house, I went to 빚은 Bizeun to buy tteok ^^|
Yeah..told you I fell in love with 떡 in this trip ㅋㅋㅋ
|Tasted a bit bitter..|
Not used to the taste of this 떡 but I don't mind to eat it again.
|This was nice ^^|
My 야채 김밥 at KRW2500 per roll from 마포만두. Luckily, I bought one roll cos this was quite filling. I don't like soft drinks but I wanted to try Cherry Coke. Bought it on the first day when I reach Seoul and did not drink it till now. This was a big can for me and I did not finish it. Well, it tasted alright. It did not have the medicine syrup taste if you know what I mean. Sigh...its time to check out ㅠㅠ
|I walked back to my guest house after a heavy dinner at 마포만두.|
Passed by Vinyl Cocktail Bar the second time for the day and decided to try out the drinks.
Have been thinking of coming here in my previous trips but did not have a chance to do so.
Since I passed by, so why not.
*Took this picture when I passed by during the first time.
|Errmmm...I am not an alcoholic but I thought this is cheap.|
|I took the subway to Hapjeong Station, exit 2 for my dinner at 마포만두.|
Make a 180 degree left turn at exit 2.
|and you will see 마포만두.|
|Yup 마포만두 Mapo Mandu.|
I think 마포만두 has several branches in Seoul.
They have a wide variety on their menu but menu is in Korean only.
21. 갈비만두 Galbi Mandu
22. 고기만두 Pork Mandu(I think its pork but I'm not very sure.)
23. 김치만두 Kimchi Mandu
24. 개성만두 Gaeseong Mandu (I think it consists of pork and some cabbage)
25. 모듬만두 Assorted Mandu
26. 찹쌀순대 Sundae (I think so)
27. 쌀떡볶이 Tteokbokki
28. 야채 김밥 Vegetables Kimbap
29. 오뎅 (2 sticks)
30. 바지락칼국수 Clam Noodles
31. 비빔냉면 Bibim Naengmyeon
32. 물냉면 Naengmyeon
33. 쫄면 Jjolmyeon (I wonder what's the difference between Bibimbap Naengmyeon and Jjolmyeon. Here's the recipe for Jjolmyeon from Aeriskitchen.)
34. 참치 국수 Tuna Noodles
35. 해물우동 Seafood Udon
36. 우동 Udon
37. 만두 라면 Mandu Ramyeon
38. 치즈라면 Cheese Ramyeon
39. 떡라면 Tteok Ramyeon
40. 라면 Ramyeon
|Place your order at the cashier and pay at the cashier when you have finished eating.|
|I was very hungry!!|
So I ordered 개성만두 Gaeseong Mandu and 오징어덮밥 Stir fried spicy squid with rice.
오징어덮밥 was delicious but quite spicy for me ㅋㅋㅋI like the squid cos its very "Q" ie very chewy.
개성만두 Gaeseong Mandu.I couldn't finish all the mandu....
...but I could not resist not to order becos almost every table ordered a tray of mandu.
|Looks good but taste ok lah...|
I still prefer Dim Sum ㅋㅋㅋ
No regrets to order though.
At least, I tried their mandu before ^^
