[Seoul - Hongdae] Mekong Thai

Mekong Thai is a chain of Thai/Southeast Asian food restaurants in Korea.

Personally, I have other Thai restaurants I prefer, but Mekong will do in a pinch. It's not solely Thai food, too, it's more generally Southeast Asian food. For example, there is Nasi Goreng, bun cha, and pho on the menu.

The menu has a variety of food options, including some fusion food. I've been a couple of times with coworkers (Seocho Gucheong location) and with friends (Hongdae location).

The food is pretty consistent, but I think it may have a slight Korean "twist" on the food to fit the Korean taste palate.

This time, my friend and I shared. We got the mee goreng (11,800KRW) and the Thai Red Curry (12,800KRW).

The food was fine, but it wasn't especially flavorful. We both preferred the curry over the mee goreng.

I don't know very much about Thai food, but I think, in the United States, I am usually served jasmine rice with Thai food. This restaurant, however, served Korean rice with our food with toasted sesame seeds on top. I don't know if this is what is typically served with the curry because this was the first time I ordered it at Mekong Thai (I usually get tom yum kkung).

I would recommend the tom yum and a lot of the appetizers seem intriguing, but I haven't tried them before.

[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.
