Had a comforting Korean meal at Sujak Bansang 수작반상 by hapjeong station. All the banchan are made in house and they are creative in the presentation. Not exactly fusion, but not traditional.
It's nostalgic, fun fare. #koreanfood #hapjeong #seouleats 마포구 서교동 484-25
Had the famous beef noodles from Soi Yeonnam. Its a satisfying bowl of noodles like no other in Korea but it is a tad on the sweet side. The beef is incredibly tender and flavorful and I like their somtam, but it could be spicier. #seouleats #korea #yeonnamdong

TASTING Royce Nama Chocolate So good and worth going to Japan for.
Having a Cuban sandwich with tomato soup at Cuba Kings. Soup is great. Has some toasted rice on top and it is nicely spiced with decent body. The sandwich would have been great if it was freshly toasted instead of premade and briefly heated. Meh. #cuban #koreanfood #seouleatsA photo posted by Seoul Eats By Yoonie and Danny (@seouleats) on
The sandwich would have been great if they made it fresh. The tomato soup was wonderful and I loved the toasted rice bits in it. Not bad. Not Bad.
As a new father with a quickly growing daughter, I had learned to adapt quickly in order to feed my little spawn. She has gone through the milk phase and then just rice phase and now she wants flavor. Well...flavor with some compromises. I have to get nutrients into my little girl while also making food fun. After all, I do have a reputation to uphold.
Feeding a baby is a fun challenge. Of course my little carrot would love to eat ice cream all day. Seriously. She loves soft serve ice cream, it is not very nutritious and I don't want her consuming so much sugar. She would also love strawberries all the time but at 20,000 won per container its not a viable snack.
My little meatball does love tofu but tofu is a tad salty. She also likes eggs, spinach and noodles. Actually, she likes a lot of food but they must be in a fun form factor for her to enjoy them.
Take carrots. She could take them or leave them. I could boil them and mash them but that doesn't do much. I could put them in soup, but she picks them out. Now inside dumplings, she likes them or if I make them into pancakes with a bit of tofu and oil; she'll devour them. Spinach is fine if they are chopped finely or if I get rid of the fibrous stem.
Tomatoes have been a godsend and she'll eat them raw or if I make a tomato and egg drop soup.
Meat is pretty easy. She loves them but they should be made easy to chew. She has teeth but not enough for something chewy. Fork torn chicken works and so does minced beef. I find that making them into a soup works best.
My goal is to have my daughter enjoy the many different flavors of the world while focusing on what is natural. But then again, isn't that how we should all eat?
For the last year I have been involved in a startup called iFood Korea in which I work with my foodie friends. Our goal was to created a curated food community by industry professionals. We have been supporting the chef's community by asking the restaurants they like and then sending our teams to make content about it. I will be sharing some of the content here as well. I hope you will go out and enjoy eating at the different places the chefs recommend.

Krista's Great Day in Seoul Here is a food tour that we did for our guest, Krista. Thank you so much for dining with us!
Family Adventure in Okinawa Hi everyone, this is Daniel Gray from South Korea and I wanted to tell you about our family trip to Okinawa Japan. Was it good? Is it good for babies? Watch to find out! Dan @seouleats
Here is the info
I kinda blame myself. I didn't rally others to my cause nor use Facebook as my pallet. I just sat back and watched the circus.
Imagine how many billions of dollars of resources and time were wasted on this election? It's all a mess. The system is broken, this guy says he can fix it.
I can only pray for the best.
As an American overseas, I can just live my way as an immigrant and hope the actions of a country across the sea won't harm me.
Let's hope for the best and hope that Mr. Trump can do what is in the best interest of the world.
My favorite apple computer I have ever had was my first. It was a 12inch white iBook. It was small, portable and fast. That was 12 years ago. Since then I have had several apple laptops and imacs. My last apple was a Macbook pro I bought in 2009. I am waiting to upgrade but I don't know which one to get. I am actually interested in getting the last generation Macbook pro or even the last generation Macbook air. I still like the idea of ports.
However, some new research about the new skylake processors may make me go for the new macbooks.
Skylake processors might allow wireless charging. Also I think the extra large trackpad might be there so it can be used with a pencil input.
I had the iPad pro and pencil and I liked the pencil. I didn't like anything else about the tablet but I did like the pencil.
I think Apple is still working on improvements but won't reveal them until they are ready unlike some other companies. I like and respect that about the company.
Now you might be wondering why I don't just get a surface or another computer.
Well, all the Macs I have had have lasted forever. They are reliable and I like the OS and in my line of work it is necessary. My staff has windows units and we lose time and money getting their units fixed.
So...it's time to get a new unit. I will let you know which one I choose soon.
Artist Lee Jeongin's Any Given Place Hongdae artist Lee Jeongin was the winner of an art exhibition and digital marketing campaign to help share her paintings with Korea and the world. Here she talks about her inspirations and her goals. This event is being sponsored by Hyunhee Shin and iFood Korea. http://ift.tt/2dOyIMH www.ifoodk.com
Nowadays no-carb eating is becoming more popular so more people are eating proteins and cheese is thought of as a non-carb food. Unfortunately, many of the cheeses are processed (including the mozzarella) so dining no-carb in Korea can be a tad difficult.
Another attributing factor is the rise of the "singles" lifestyle. Many more people are choosing to stay single so they tend to indulge more and these new types of food are considered comforting. There have been a rise in western-style cocktail bars where bartenders will talk with you.
Even older generations are getting into indulgences as they don't have as many grandkids to take care of and they have more expendable income.
What this means is that Korean food culture is taking another shift and this shift maybe poor for public health.
I had hoped that the awesomely powerful iPad Pro 12.9 could be my go-to computer. It was supposed to be a creative machine that I could use to compose letters and articles, take and edit photos, take and edit video and much more. It was a failure. For one the 12.9 is too large to use it on the go and I was constantly afraid of dropping it. You can't type on it well unless you are sitting. The Apple Pencil is cool but I lost one so it cost money replacing and then I was constantly paranoid I would lose it again so I rarely used it. Charging via the 12 watt charger was glacial.
Now it was powerful but being stuck in the iOS ecosystem didn't make it particularly useful. I spent money on apps trying to get it to do what my computer could do better.
The iPad was good for two things: games and watching movies which killed my productivity. So... not very good.
Anyway, Apple is supposed to do a MacBook refresh in 5 days. I am waiting. My 2009 MacBook is still fine but it isn't my goto machine these days.
Now I haven't written off the iPad entirely. I would get a iPad 9.7 or possibly a new iPad mini. I think the mini could be a great camera replacement and livecasting tool especially in this 'need it now' society.
I am writing this on my reliable iPhone 5s and I will wait for the iPhone 8 before changing. Well that is unless I can pick up a decent secondhand 6s Plus.
The one thing I do know is that I won't be relying on my iPad to be my computer. It's a shiny toy, not a computer.
Hazellbaby eats broccoli and shrimp I prepared breakfast for my baby. She is loving brocolli and i had some nice potatoes so i boiled them and made a soup with some chopped shrimp. Will she eat it? Watch to find out.

It's hard to get great Chinese food in Seoul. Daehan Shijang is famous for their xaolong bao but they weren't soupy this time. Sigh. Their other dishes were good though. Maybe they just had a bad day.
