Ale Crew, Seoul, South Korea

It was a beautiful Saturday and I headed out to the western suburbs of Seoul on the great metro system and was soon looking for today’s target, Ale Crew.

It is about a 15 minute walk from Sinchon station. Up an incline and then down a steep set of stairs to an old railway line that’s been made into a park / walkway with heaps of bars and restaurants lining the way.

Daily Beer Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

On the Friday I decided to take a tour of the DMZ, about 50 kilometers northwestish from Seoul. While we couldn’t get into the Joint Security Area we were able to see over into North Korea despite the air quality being very poor.

The tour had us returning to central Seoul around 4:45pm and having only water and a small snack during the day I was keen to find somewhere for a beer and food.

Opening up maps on my phone pointed me towards one of the Daily Beer locations near Jong-Gag station.

BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe, I’Park Mall, Yongsan, Seoul, South Korea

I’d decided to spend the day around the area where my hotel was so I’d headed to the I’Park Mall Yongsan for a bit of a look around. The mall is ontop of Yongsan railway station.

Getting peckish around noon I headed into the Taste Park section of the shopping centre and had a look for something to eat. On the 5th floor I saw a place called BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe which had decent reviews so I thought I’d head on in.

Rice Paper Scissors, Melbourne, Australia

A couple of us from work had decided to head out for a bit of a project lunch. Close to the office is Rice Paper Scissors which I’d walked past often but never went into so today we decided to head on in.

To make life easy for sharing we got the 5 dish banquet which allows you to order 5 dishes and we chose

  • Thai Fred Chicken
  • Crying Tiger – chargilled beef brisket
  • Suckling Pig Steamed Buns
  • Milawa Duck Larb
  • Something Green? – seasonal veges

Its difficult to pick a favorite dish as they were all excellent in their own different way.

We also enjoyed a bottle of the Gippsland Moondarra ‘Studebaker’ Pinot Noir along with the meal.

Given there’s nearly always a queue to eat here and the food is so good I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you ate here.
