[Seoul - Gwanghwamun] Hummus Kitchen - Upscale Middle Eastern Food

Today is International Falafel Day, so I thought I'd write about some falafel I had in Seoul at Hummus Kitchen. There are multiple locations, including the original location in Itaewon, one in D Tower (Power Plant and On the Border), IFC Mall, and one in Coex Mall.

Sorry, no menu pictures in this post, but it was all in English. Honestly, when my colleague said we should go to Hummus Kitchen to discuss a project, I kind of imagined the food from Hummus Kitchen in NYC.

The menu items are all roughly 15,000KRW-20,000KRW (slightly cheaper at lunch). Coming from NYC, it's a pretty expensive for hummus, taboulleh salad, and the like.

This is the beef shakshuka. It comes with some bread, a bit of salad, and some eggs. It was quite filling, but slightly sweeter than the ones I am used to eating. I would recommend this if you are hungry and need a hearty meal.


This is the hummus sampler. Honestly, this was probably some of the MOST EXPENSIVE hummus I've ever eaten (Hummus Kitchen in NYC isn't cheap, either, but the portions are bigger). This sampler was around 15,000KRW. It did come with 2 falafels on top and some tabbouleh. The tabbouleh was really tasty and very fresh. The olive oil in the hummus was very nice quality and it really added to the flavor and experience.
The hummus sampler also comes with two pitas.


It's not cheap, but the quality of the food is quite high. The ingredients are fresh and the service is great. For Seoul, it's also a pretty quiet restaurant even during lunch. It would be a nice place for a celebratory gathering. There are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, too. If you're a meat eater, there's also fish and meat options for you.

However, it's somewhat pricey, so I could see being able to spend more than 100,000KRW for a group of 4 quite easily.

[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.
