[Seoul - Sindorim] Tonkastick - Galbi Jjim Donkatsu 매갈까스

My friend and I went to Tonkastick in Sindorim for donkatsu dinner!

Sindorim is the meetup spot for meeting friends from Incheon if you live in Seoul.

This place is kind of interesting. It is quite small, maybe seats for 20 people maximum.

Their "claim to fame" is what we ordered - a shareable donkatsu hotpot of sorts.
We got the 매갈까스, which is a combination of spicy galbi jjim and cheese donkatsu.
매갈 = 매울갈비찜 (spicy galbi jjim) and 까스 = 돈까스 (donkatsu pork cutlet).

We got the 2 person size, so it's 19,000 KRW.

They give you cheesy french fries!
This place gets me.
The side dishes include cream soup, Korean macaroni salad, lettuce salad (not pictured, sorry), kimchi, and pickled radish.

It was the perfect size for us.
The donkatsu was nice and fried and crispy despite being in the stew. There was cheese, but it was not overwhelmingly cheesy.

The galbi jjim is a nice touch, it's under the donkatsu. It balances out the friedness of the donkatsu. It's also nice and spicy, so it also kind of balances the flavor of the donkatsu well, too.

[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.
