Fatman Seoul Speaks : Review of Comedor

Monday, June 08, 2009

If I was to characterize all the Korean bloggers in relation to the Batman Comics universe, I would equate Roboseyo to the Joker, I would obviously be Batman, Zenkimchi would be Albert (he's kinda the fatherly figure to us all), Fatman Seoul could be the Penguin in terms of looks, but would be more like the Riddler, Feetman Seoul could be Mr. Freeze- I mean the Arnold Schwartzenegger version because he has that build, and...hmmm...who would be Robin? I would say my buddy Lunalil.

Restaurant Review : Comedor

Seoul has an amazingly diverse range of restaurants that cater to all kinds of tastes, but the area south of North America has been shockingly underrepresented. Things are looking up (or is that down south?) though with a spate of newer places looking to bring cuisine from Central and South America to those living south of the DMZ. Comedor, specializing in empanadas, has moved from street stall digs on the main drag of Itaewon to the alley immediately to the south.
Start your gastric juices with a gigantic herbal tea, terere. You’ll get a small wooden cup filled with unidentifiable but fragrant herbs, and a gigantic barrel of water you take from the spout and let brew for a few minutes before slurping through the straw/strainer provided. One serving of this refreshment is enough for three adults, without ever finding the bottom of the pot.
