Le Blé d’Or, Taipei, Taiwan

After a quick flight from Seoul to Taipei I was ready to head out for a drink and dinner somewhere close to Taipei Main Station.

Across the road from the station is a shopping mall called Q Square, and along with lots of shops there are a good number of bars and restaurants. A quick look at the map and up the escalators to the fourth floor I was standing outside Le Ble D’Or with its interesting Chinese/German/Italian menu. In I went.

After an afternoon of decent beers at MysterLee I was looking for an early dinner, and my map had me heading to a small Japanese curry store just across the street from the bar called Oretachi Curry.

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.

Kiwa Taproom, Seoul, South Korea

For my first day in Seoul I decided to head up a little north to the famous Insadong Street, close to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Jumping off the metro at Jong-Gag station I walked around the area for a while before heading a little further north towards the palace.

I didn’t go into the palace as it was coming toward lunchtime and I was hungry and thirsty.

Pulling up my map app I found a small local brewery close by called Kiwa Taproom very close to Seoul’s National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.
