Seoul Food

A new Kraze Burger has opened up at the Suwon Station. We were surprised to find that they spoke English which made ordering easy. Curt (hubby) ordered a chili burger along with chili-cheese fries.

Curt is still learning how to say "no tomato, no onion" in Korean. This is my Caesar salad with a cheeseburger. It's always great when I don't have to pick anything off of my burger especially tomato guts. I know I'm picky!

This is a shot of the inside of the store. We were the only customers. The music was blasting but then we did sit right next to one of the speakers.

When we went to Seoul last weekend, I had heard about another Mexican restaurant. Since they are few and far between here in Korea and we both love Mexican food, we had to try it out. It's called Tomatillo: The Taco Place. The ordering is very similar to Chipotles back in the States. You pick what you want (taco, burrito...), then your meat and fixings. They spoke English. I was even able to get extra sour cream on my burrito!

This is the outside of the restaurant.

We also got an order of nachos. Curt thought it wasn't as good as Dos Tacos in Gangnam while I thought it was really good. I LOVE Mexican food so I'm not going to judge the differences. It was really easy to find. Subway Line #1, Exit Jongak Station and it's on the right.

As if we didn't need another Korean food addiction, we discovered Rotiboy. It is a mouth watering experience.

It doesn't look like much on the outside but inside is a buttery confection that is really hard to describe. You can also get it flavored with a hint of coffee which is what we prefer.

They are also really reasonable and one just opened close to where we wait for the bus to take us from Seoul to Suwon.

Here is the outside. Hellena brought a box of them when she visited a few days ago. You just have to pop them into the oven for five minutes. Luckily, we don't know if there are any in Suwon but they are pretty prevalent in Seoul.

The shot of the McIlheney's (Tabasco) on the counter made my heart sing! They were the most familiar thing I could find in Argentina and they are in S. Korea too! Wow!

We stayed in Seoul last weekend but unfortunately couldn't find Tomatillo's! (Sometimes we are directionally challenged.) We are from Texas and will eat Mexican food anytime and anywhere. However, we did eat a Rotiboy - they are delicious!
