Remember Homemeal Mimi? It closed shortly after I got around to posting about it… Well, they are back with season 2: Dosirak Mimi! The new location is on a not-too-crowded street, up on the 1st floor! The space is small: just 6 seats, but doesn’t feel too cramped. You can save ₩2,000 by getting your…… Continue reading 도기락집 미미 | Dosirak Mimi
Nothing beats sitting down to a warm meal after freezing outside in Seoul’s winter~ And, since I’m kind of a picky eater, it’s even better when that meal is one of my favorite dishes! A couple months ago (yes, this is another delayed posting) Boyfriend was involved in this project that involved painting storm drains…… Continue reading 가미 | Gami
[Update Dec. 2017: Mimi closed :( Their instagram is still active & they might open a new place in the future.] I love eating home-cooked meals, but I am a mess and cannot organize a meal with more than one dish. Especially Korean style meals with 3+ side dishes and soups and whatnot. This is…… Continue reading 가정식밥집 미미 | Homemeal Mimi [Closed]
Simple, cheap Korean homestyle meals. They’ve got a daily special, so you can come often and still have variety. Eat alone without it being weird!

Donburi is one of my favorite meals because of how simple it is: just some stuff on top of rice. This place is perfect for a late night meal alone, when you just want something warm and cheap. Once upon a time, Hongdae Donburi was open 24 hours (hence the big 24시 on the sign),…… Continue reading 홍대 돈부리 | Hongdae Donburi
This is one of those cafes that has all sorts of stuff going on behind the scenes. I’m pretty certain it’s run by women, and based on some of the books I’ve seen, they seem into some feminist scenes. There’s also a connection to a community for single-woman households, and maybe also some kind of…… Continue reading 어슬렁 정거장
I first walked by this place last winter after I moved to the neighborhood and went exploring. And since brunch is my favorite meal, any place that does brunch sets is worth checking out!
I have zero idea what the name of this place has to do with anything, but it’s a cute place to stop at if you’re around City Hall. And their panini + fruit ade lunch set is very tasty!
