012 Samcheongdong – My Favorite Place In Seoul

Play

Jessy K. Piskai www.tastyoldcabbage.com When in Korea... podcast Samcheongdong is the place to be. A magical place where the old meets the new, a microcosm of art, fashion, Korean culture, history and political power paired with boutique style shops and  delicious and international cuisine.
A must- go- visit destination while being in Korea!
Recommendations:
1). ogada Korean Tea & time tea house (have monitors in their tea tables to browse the web),
-> I had spicy ginger and orange peel tea
-> they serve egg biscuits as well (that is one of their best sellers)

Ogada's famous Egg Biscuits. YUM...!

2) flora Italian restaurant
House wine is amazing for 6$
Prepared the pizza right in front of us (Flower pedals on pizza)
There are two of them in the area. We preferred the one closest to the president’s residence park entrance
Address: seoul, Jongno-gu, Hwa-dong 138-14
3) must go and see and taste is romanee conti wine bar 
This wine bar offers a long list of fine and interesting wines.
Who could say no to a glass of French wine in an old hanok (traditional Korean house)
I also heard great things about an Italian restaurant called 8 steps 
Organic restaurant: Suji Kim

how to get there by train: get off either at Anguk station or at Gyeongbok-gung

by car: 58-1 Hwa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea -> punch that into the GPS and it should take you to a paid parking lot (I think)

007 Interview – Teaching And Living in Korea, International Health Care Center, Love Motels, Food, Busan, Safety, Travel

Play

Jessy K. Piskai www.tastyoldcabbage.com When in Korea... podcast In this episode of the WiK podcast I get to talk to my friends and ESL teachers in Korea, Sadie and Nora, about teaching and living in Korea, medical care, love motels, food, Busan, safety and travel.

Side note: Sadie mentioned that most Korean apartments don’t have ovens. While that is true the newer apartment complexes have ovens and most Americans manage to find a place to live that has an oven in the kitchen (although it might be a smaller one lol). TIP: So when you are out hunting for apartments look out for those with a dishwasher and an oven.
