Photoblog:Winter in Seoul

It's cold in Korea, so here is a photo essay of how you can stay warm. Eat Odeng at Gwangjang Market. This ajumma has been here for 30 years. You'll see her in the main food area. Eat bbongobang or red bean stuffed gold fish bread. Wear Silly Hats Go on a date Koreans like to eat ice cream in the winter because they say it warms them up. Dress warm Drink pine needle tea or steamed pine needle rice cake Eat Juk! Pumpkin Juk or red bean or black sesame Eat Korean BBQ Here are some pictures of winter in Korea. When I think of winter I think of Bungeobbang, O-deng, Panda caps, love, pumpkin juk, and people eating ice cream out in the cold. You just gotta love Korea.Dan

News: Cass Stealing Water for 37 Years

OB Brewery can't seem to get a break. In 2014 there was a rumor that the beer tastes like bleach. ( which was unfounded and was believed to have been started by a rival.  Now they are in trouble again for stealing water from the North Han river for 37 years. They reportedly owe 270억 or 270,000 usd in back fees. OB claimed that they were not liable for the fees since they built a dam for their own usage. However, it was later revealed they did not pay for the dam as claimed.  The controversy has upset individual taxpayers since their tax fees have been raised this year while big companies can get away with avoiding taxes for so long.

Preparing Meals for the Pregnant Korean Wife

My wife is entering her second trimester of her pregnancy and I have been trying to keep her well fed. We own two restaurants but she doesn't seem to enjoy the food much these days. She doesn't really like anything greasy at all and the taste of meat seems to offend her. She likes pastas, fresh fruits, salads, and bean sprouts. Kimchi, at times, will make her nauseous and so will many of the regular Korean foods she enjoys.  I have been doing quite a few late night food runs for fruit- especially strawberries. Luckily in Korea they are readily available in December and January.  I have been waiting for her to request a gourgefest of fried chicken, burgers, chips, ice cream and other goodies but...those foods are not what she (and my baby) craves. She'll ask for bibimbap or rice cake or some times spicy octopus (which she knows she can't have). I will go get her gopchang (spicy intestines) or soondae (blood sausage) and she'll take one bite and then ask for something

Opening rice cake and fried chicken this weekend at brew 3.15

When you open up a new business in Korea, it is important to give gifts of rice cake with a letter of introduction to the neighbors. It is asking them to wish the new business luck and the desire to be good neighbors.  If you come by today and tomorrow (Friday-Saturday, January 9-10, 2015), we will be giving away rice cakes (Friday only) and tastings of our spicy chicken balls (Friday and Saturday) Wish us luck.  Dan

Brew 3.15 Opening Party: Get Loads of Tom's Spicy Chicken Balls for Free (With Craft Beer Purchase)

On August 2013, I opened up a small little pizza place in Insadong  and it somehow survived. I even made a little money with it. Then on December 31, 2014 with my saved money and some of my wife's we opened up Brew 3.15 Craft Beer and Fried Chicken House. This one has been a challenge. We had to completely redo the place because the previous tenants really let it go for 10 years. We wanted to restore to a Korean-style house but that was a challenge. We had to deal with electric and other issues, plus the previous tenants built the place out beyond what it was zoned for. The neighbors complained and fought us every step of the way because of noise, parking, zoning, trash, dust...sigh...everything they possibly could. It was like they didn't want us there. was obvious they really didn't. Anyway, at the end, we made a restaurant and we did a couple soft openings but we are now really ready to give it go. We have a chef that has been perfecting his fried c

The future is now.

These days I am in the midst of starting a new restaurant, planning a vacation and working on a new secret project (details to follow). Oh, and world I am going to be a father. Wow! I don't even know what to say. I am very future focused right now. I have learned from my experiences and I known capacities. Now I need to plan for my wife and child. I now understand what it means to be a parent. It's scary yet exciting. I hope I am able to be a good provider.  Dan

Menu testing At Brew 3.15: Loaded Totchos (Tater tots) and more

One of the best parts of opening up a new restaurant is testing the menu. Some make it and some don't. Today we tested a honey Dijon chicken sandwich, Heferweizen-battered onion rings, currywurst, and "totchos" or loaded tater tots. All were pretty darn tasty. Come see what makes the final menu soon at brew 3.15 #brew315 #totchos #seouleats #picstitch
