My quest for Mister Donut did not start out great….first of all the location listed in our tour book was no longer around…and Googling did not help either. So basically I had given up on the first night. The next morning we were on our way to Insadong. Fannypack suggested we take a walk to […]
During our stay in Seoul Fannypack and I took the subway a lot. It was the rather convenient way to travel around and it was a lot easier to understand too as they have the English names written on the maps rather than just Korean characters, which was the case with buses. And, as with […]
So…now comes the time of the main attraction…the whole purpose of our trip to South Korea. Prior to the trip we had researched just where would be a good place to have this sannakji: fresh raw octopus, the tentacles of which are served still squirming on the plate.

When Fannypack and I were deciding where to go for our next vacation, I had already forcefully told her that it would be an eating trip for me, therefore we should go somewhere with good food. Hitman and I had previously discussed whether any Korean restaurants here serve sannakji (live octopus)…and after conferring with my […]
