Here are a few unique gifts and holiday sets I found at The Met gift shop for all you last minute shoppers out there! (Also, to people who do New Year's gifts or send out gifts after the holiday rush). If you can't get to The Met in person, you can shop for everything on the website: https://store.metmuseum.org/ (Including 10% off coupon sent to your email; also on Ebates (use my personal referral code to get $10 bonus cash back for your first order)
I've been trying to write more posts to help you choose some gifts/souvenirs of the food/drink variety. So, I realized I had never published this post about the Jeju-specific alcohol that I recommend. (See my previous post here: Jeju Soju )
I had to revisit Soonhee's Bindaeddeok! This time, I didn't go to the sit-down restaurant. Instead, we just went to the food stall, so it's slightly different, I promise. Here is my other post . Book a Gwangjang Market Tour! - Eating your way through the market is always better in a group.
Busan P&O Gallery Cafe is the perfect post-hike cafe for anyone else who was woefully unprepared for the sunrise trail hike along the Busan coast. Book your Korean-Style Fried Chicken & Jjajangmyeon Cooking Class + Market Tour in Busan Book a 2 day, 1 night trip to Busan from Seoul (includes RT train tickets and hotel room)
The Gungjeon Bakery (궁전제과) in Gwangju is a bread wonderland in South Jeolla Province (Jeollanam-do). It was established in 1973, which probably makes it one of the oldest European-style bakeries in the region (if not in the whole of Korea).
So, I'm going to post some posts about the restaurant reviews and tourist things I did on my trip to Seoul. Sorry it took me so long! This is a revisit to Ranju Kalmyun 란주칼면 (fresh knife-cut noodles), 1+ years later to see if it is still good. Original visit post here: http://www.eatstretchexplore.com/2017/09/seoul-myeongdong-ranju-kalmyeon-fresh-knifecut-noodles.html My original visit also included a rice dish and also kkanpunggi (sweet and sour chicken).
