[Seoul - Sillim] Endeavor Frites (Homemade potato chips and cream beer)

When I was working at Seoul National University, I was doing some foodie research and stumbled upon this little hole in the wall place in Sillim - Endeavor Frites, which serves up Belgian-style frites and specialty beers AND HOMEMADE POTATO CHIPS!!

It makes frites (French fries), obviously, but it also makes homemade potato chips!

I really love potato chips. Like I wish my career could be "Expert Potato Chip Tester"...that's how much I love potato chips.

Unfortunately for me, however, Korea is not really known for potato chips options. Believe me. I have been disappointed eating potato chips with sugar on them. Not that good.

I was so happy when I found that Endeavor Frites made homemade potato chips (수제감자칩 - sooje gam ja chip). They only cost 5500KRW and are fried to order. Seasoned perfectly with salt. They were also not overly greasy, as often happens with homemade chips. Also, a good sign is that they don't overload the fryer - the chips were not stuck together in a clump. We got onion and hot chili sauces.

We also ordered cream beer (크림생맥주 - cream saeng maek joo) - 2,000KRW. So, this was also a kind of new concept to me. I mean, I read about it a lot, but have never tried it. It's basically a pour of beer from tap and they put a layer of cream on it. If you don't drink it right away, the cream sinks into the beer somewhat quickly, obviously since it's not foam.

We also ordered a small size of the Belgian frites, but they also sell them. You have three size options and they come with sauces. (See menu picture)

Sauce: garlic chili, onion, sweet chili, Cajun, garlic cheese, yogurt, tomato, barbeque, cheese, ketchup, salsa, hot chili

Belgian fries: Small fries + 1 sauce (3500 KRW), Medium fries + 1 sauce (4500 KRW), Large fries + 2 sauces (5500 KRW).

Additional sauces = 500KRW

There are only about 4 tables inside the store and maybe 3 outside and a few bar seats. It's quite tiny.
You can also easily do takeout. In the time that were eating, I would say about 85% of the business was takeout.

Directions: Kind of complicated, so maybe make sure you go with a friend who is good at directions. Also, search for 인데버프리츠 on Naver Maps.

From exit 5 of Sillim Station. Walk about 167 meters to a pharmacy (약국) and turn right there and then walk straight ahead about 300 meters.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
