Look Mom! I'm in USA Today

Sunday, December 02, 2012



Thanks to Psy, Korea seems to be quite popular right now. The good thing is that every journalist needs to eat. I was lucky enough to show USA Today Journalist Jayne Clarke around in Gangnam.

Here is what Jayne had to say about our tours:

'Amazing place' for food

New Yorkers Adam Wadler and his wife, Vivian Chen, have come to Seoul primarily to eat. Researching their dining-centric trip presented a bit of an "information hurdle," he says. "But it's an amazing place. I'm really glad I came."

They've hooked up with Daniel Gray of O'ngo Food Tours for a whirlwind evening at a trio of Gangnam restaurants. It begins at Seoyeon, a six-table noodle shop famous for its handmade pork dumplings. Next stop is Bon Barbecue, where tables have grills and individual exhaust fans. Then it's on to a Kkanbu Chicken for Korean fried chicken, though this KFC — extra crispy outside and super-moist inside — bears little resemblance to KFC franchise fare.

They wash down the food with Korean beer, soju (a distilled vodka-like rice drink) andmakgeolli, or "farmer's liquor." Like many a night out in Seoul, it ends at a noraebang, a private karaoke room.

Thank you so much, Jayne. You can read the rest of the article here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/destinations/2012/11/29/gangnam-style-puts-seoul-on-the-travel-map/1736497/
