Pale Ales and American Pizza @devilsdoor

Image
Pale Ales and American Pizza @devilsdoor.official great atmosphere but it is reminiscent of old school Korean hofs in neon. Beer is good, not as great as @magpiebrewing or @galmegibrewing or @nomadicbrewingco but it is a different style of beer for a different palatte. Pizza was thin crust and loaded with fresh toppings. Not a huge pizza but it is essentially a beer snack. Oh, no beer snacks like popcorn, nuts or other stuff. Not complaining, just can't believe they could get away with it for the price. It's conveniently located at IFC mall in Yeouido. #craftbeer #수제맥주 #seouleats #koreafood #foodporn #love #instagood #beautiful #food #korea #instafood #instatravel #travelgram  #goodeats #foodblogger #푸드스타그램 #맛스타그램 #맛있어 #좋아요 #냠냠 #데일리 #맞팔 #데일리 #맛있다 #먹스타그램 #피자 #pizza  Sent from my iPhone

Top Grade Korean Beef at Woo Rae Oak’s first store

Image
Had a glorious Korean Hanwoo Beef experience at the original @woolaeoak in Seoul, Korea. The marbling and flavor of the ribs was transcendent. The kimchi and salad sides were not too salty or sour so they did not outshine the star: beef. Had the bulgogi after which was fine. Finishing the whole meal off with Pyeongyang-style #naengmyeon made it complete. Amazing. 4stars. #seouleats #koreafood #foodporn #love #instagood #beautiful #food #korea #instafood #instatravel #travelgram  #goodeats #foodblogger #푸드스타그램 #맛스타그램 #맛있어 #좋아요 #냠냠 #데일리 #맞팔 #데일리 #맛있다 #먹스타그램 [Naver Map] Woo Lae Oak 62-29 Changgyeonggung-ro Jung-gu Seoul http://naver.me/5e0JD44A 02-2265-0151

Angyeong Halmeoni Gopchang

Image
An-gyeong Halmeoni Gopchang is a 30 year restaurant that specializes in beef and pork intestines. Geomson Song is current proprietor and she is one of the toughest, hardest working people I have ever met. She gets in at 8pm and works until 3am. The intestines are prepared in special pots called Hutong. Through dry heat in the hutongs, the intestines are cleaned and the grease is extracted. Sauces are made in house and the gopchang with vegetables is absolutely sublime. I am not a fan or grilled entrails, but I could eat these. #곱장 #안경할머니곱창 #seouleats #koreafood #foodporn #love #instagood #beautiful #food #korea #instafood #instatravel #travelgram  #goodeats #foodblogger #푸드스타그램 #맛스타그램 #맛있어 #좋아요 #냠냠 #데일리 #맞팔 #데일리 #맛있다 #먹스타그램 [Naver Map] Angyeong Halmeoni Grilled Tripe 55 Toegye-ro 87-gil Jung-gu Seoul http://naver.me/5fSP17QP 02-2236-1954 http://www.gobchangstory.co.kr/ http://naver.me/5fSP17QP

The Importance of Color

Image
  I love how colorful Korea is. If you look out at any busy street, there are myriads of shades. This is a recent picture I took at Mercentopolis at Hapjeong Station at nighttime. The umbrellas just set the right mood for an evening with friends or family.

Korean-style Netflix and Chill

Image
Shin Ramen and Kimchi is how we do it in Korea. Now as a father I have learned how to make Ramen with nearly no sound like a ninja. I like to add an egg in it just as the ramen starts to bubble. The kimchi is a perfect complement. Hey it might not be the healthiest but it is my comfort food that goes well with a side of Stranger Things.

The Best Hanwoo Beef in Korea is not in Seoul

Image
Best Beef in Korea Hanwoo I am all about going to the source. The best beef is not found at the supermarkets or even at the high-end restaurants in Seoul. If the restaurant does not have its own herds or farms then they can't control the quality of beef or have discretion on what is good beef then it won't consistently be the best. The problem is that Korea doesn't have enough local beef and the grading system is not exact across the board. I am not going to name names or go too deep into the politics of this because it is something that is being addressed and I think eventually it will be standardized. 1++ (the highest grade) beef is different from region to region. Local beef cooperatives are the ones that set the standards. In Korea, I would say the best beef comes from the Southwest in Jeollanamdo and in the center in Chuncheonbukto regions. Both of these regions have enough land for cattle raising and their beef cooperatives have set high standards. The standards a

Great Places to get Bulgogi: Sariwon and Yetmat bulgogi

Image
Best Bulgogi in Korea ok I know a lot of you want and need bulgogi. FYI the bulgogi here is different than the non-Korean version you might have had. Here bulgogi is all about the stewing broth and pan that holds the broth. The Original Seoul Yetmat Bulgogi in Hongdae When there is a line out the door and people waiting on the street, there must be something worth waiting for. The Original Seoul Yetmat Bulgogi is amazing because of the no-nonsense staff that work there and their owner and head chef that has a long ZZ Top like beard. The chef is always diligently working to marinate loads of beef into his sauce while pouring copious amounts of alcohol into it to give it the right balance. The restaurant has local flare and it’s got lots of smoke, hot coals, and jovial customers and dictatorial workers. When you get served, you’ll get a load of meat to be cooked on a percolated copper tray that sits over white hot coals. As the meat cooks, there is trough along the outside whe

Finally! The iPad Pro can be used to get work done! Go PadOS!

Folks, this is exciting Having a file system and being able to use desktop versions of  a website, changes everything. This is no longer a nice video player or a bridge device. It’s a workable computer that it seems I can work with. Oh, the mini thumb keyboard is also amazing.  I tried using the iPad instead of a desktop about 3 years ago. It didn’t work. I had the top of the line 12.9 iPad Pro with pencil and I couldn’t get any work done on it. I still needed my computer. I got fed up with it so I sold it’s an artist. I then went back to using the desktop top. Now it so sudden I can work without being changed to a desk! HURRAH!  The new iPad makes the iPad seem new and exciting again. Ir also will be able to work along side my back in laprop in extension mode or something.  iOS on set the iPad but maybe in few updates you should do it! UPDATE: Wait for the next public Beta at least. Really Buggy right now and lags.

The Colors of Korea

Image
The last couple of years I have been working in a more visual medium. Looking back, I used to just point, click and post. Now I have been composing, thinking about aperture and shutter speed and trying to think of the mood I am trying to convey. I delete more these days. I no longer horde. I have gigabytes of content that I say that I will go through at some point. I haven't and I don't think I will. These days, I love playing with colors and there are so many colors to see and manipulate in Korea. It's a country that never seems to sleep. I don't fear the night anymore. When I look out, I see a colorful jungle that is inviting - but too inviting. There are so many places you can go to behave in any manner you would like. In Korea, one must have the sense to go to places with the right mindset. I think this is one of the reasons why I find living and traveling overseas is worthwhile. All the temptations of the world are out there. You can stay sheltered to them or

Chocolate Cake Coffee Break at Hollys Coffee

Image
Chocolate Cake and coffee break @hollyscoffeekr Cake was legit and had surprising little chocolate-covered cereal pops in the chocolate cream. Dark chocolate pieces were hard which contrasted the soft cake, cream and more. It had enough caffeine that I didn't really need the coffee. Delicious. The atmosphere was great as well for a 24 hour coffee shop. Why do we need offices these days? There was enough power ports and strong WiFi to carry you through the day.

Distinguishing the Mask Materials! Meltblown from Melt Blown, SMS, and Spunbond

Image
Know your textile materials. I could save you millions of dollars. So these days I get many questions about the different materials used in face masks. I am a distributor Meltblown, spun bond and spunbel material and many buyers have no idea the differences between them. The problem is that Melt Blown Material can cost from 23-70 USD per kilo. Many are paying a premium for SMS (Spunbond, Meltblown, Spunbond Material) or a Spunbond when they are told it is Melt Blown. Real Meltblown looks like thin fabric that has been blown in different directions. It is extremely light and strong, water resistant and resists up to 99% of bacteria and particles.

Salted Caramel Cake and a free coffee refill at Cafe Jameí

Image
Coffee with salted caramel cake @cafe_jamei. Good selection of coffee. Quaint atmosphere and if you get a hand drip, you get one refill. The salted caramel cake was good. It's getting more popular the last two years as a flavor. It was so 2008 in America. I guess it just takes a while for some some flavor profiles to go mainstream here.

Anyang Pork Back-bone Stew

Image
My general rule is if it looks old then it must be good. Anyang Gamjatang is a perfect example. They serve Biji pork spine and potato stew. This version has some tofu...trash. Relax. It's the ground up soybeans after making tofu. It adds a creamy thickness to the pork broth. Really delicious. Worth the journey to Anyang.  [Naver Map] Anyang Pork Back-bone Stew 145 Jangnae-ro Manan-gu, Anyang-si Gyeonggi-do http://naver.me/xe2Lksju #seouleats #koreafood #foodporn #love #instagood #beautiful #food #korea #instafood #instatravel #travelgram  #goodeats #foodblogger #푸드스타그램 #맛스타그램 #맛있어 #좋아요 #냠냠 #데일리 #맞팔 #데일리 #맛있다 #먹스타그램 Sent from my iPad

Food Trend: Malatang Restaurants in Korea

Image
Malatang has gone from Daerim's Chinatown to mainstream Korea. This is quite interesting since Sichuan food has tried before and failed. This time it seems it might stay. The restaurants are hip places for drinking. You can go there for lunch but it's best to sweat it out at night. This place in Itaewon is getting some well deserved fame because their food is tasty and made to order. Their fried shrimp with honey sauce was cracklingly delicious. Their malatang was a numbing burn that needs rice. Very tasty. [Naver Map] Syangnassie 14 Noksapyeong-daero 26ga-gil Yongsan-gu Seoul http://naver.me/xCmHQX5D

Non-woven Filter Materials for n95 masks

Image
Melt Blown Material BFE 99 PFE99 for n95 masks Really good melt blown extrusion machines cost 30-40 million dollars and are nearly 4 stories high and several hundred meters long. Think about it. A roll is 2000 meters long. A small machine can't make those rolls. The melt blown strands need to be blown, treated and then rolled. If someone says you can buy a Melt Blown production machine for $200,000 dollars then you should question the quality you will get. A ton of melt blown can cost 25-70,000 dollars. Do you think a machine that only costs $200,000 can make quality filter material? Our Aquaspun melt blown material is made on German-made extrusion machines that hydrobond the 10x smaller than hair stands of 100% virgin polypropylene. AND SERIOUSLY, don't buy melt blown that costs more than $35 USD. Even with supply and demand, it shouldn't be that much. ALSO, really look and distinguish if it is good melt blown material.

Gyeongju at Night.

Korea Food Trend: Fat Macaroons and Tiramisu in a cup

Image
Tiramisu in a cup and Fat Macaroons #뚱카롱 are all the rage in Ikseon-dong. It's interesting to see how Korea's sweet tooth has developed. Macaroons have been popular for a while but the fat & crazy flavored ones is now an example of k-food (a Korean twist on cuisine). Other popular things have been dirty coffee and falling cheese (like raclettes). In Jeonju Beef jeon: an egg dipped and shallow-fried fritter is the new hit thing. The younger generation seems to have developed an appetite for sweet and super savory. The other interesting developments is how the designs of the stores are more vintage. Mangwon Tiramisu is a great example since their logo looks like the old new village movement logo. Metal framed doors, dark wood paneled walls, windows with vinyl lettering are popular these days. Let's see where k-food will go from here. [Naver Map] Mangwondong Tiramisu Ikseon Branch 22 Supyo-ro 28-gil Jongno-gu Seoul http://naver.me/5j7siV10 #k-food, #seou
