Finding new and cool places to eat is actually pretty easy these days, a walk around my neighborhood offers up a plethora of new options week in week out as more and more buildings are turned into eateries to feed the hordes of people visiting our hood. Last week I was invited by the owners to come and try the food at Calcotada in Gyeongridan. Located just up on the hill past the Police station, it’s hidden away from the crowds which I always find desirable in an eatery, ain’t nobody got time for queuing. Continue reading

Linus’ Bama Style BBQ


Linus has been the talk of the town for months now, ever since he finally quit pop ups and opened up a restaurant full time he’s all anyone can talk about. His southern style barbecue is the taste of home that people have been craving for years.  Earlier this summer he started out with a flaccid opening to perfect his craft and begged for no reviews until after the grand opening. I kindly obliged his request which is why I have waited until now to post my review, that coupled with busyness and laziness. I was also waiting for him to perfect the cocktail list, you know I can’t eat without some booze in my belly, it’s bad for my digestion! Continue reading

After the disappointing and tiny dinner we had eaten at Locos, Team Fat Girl roamed the streets of Gyeongridan looking for sustenance. We eventually stumbled across new kid on the block Meatballism. Now I’m not usually one for putting balls in my mouth, but with a rumbly tummy on the go a meat ball sub seemed just the ticket to fill us all up. Continue reading

Locos BBQ


It seems like Loco is popular restaurant name in Korea these day, just last week I wrote about Gusto Loco Moco now it’s time for Locos BBQ. I walked past this place a few weeks ago, after a Sunday morning walk around the park (yes really, I went for a walk, I wasn’t lying on my sofa and vomiting following the exploits of the night before, which is my usual Sunday morning activity). Anyhow we were walking past and the smell of smoked meat was intoxicating, it was phenomenal. My nostrils demanded that I returned as soon as possible, which I did with a group of hungry Texan friends. Continue reading

Rice Cooker Casserole


As they say in Game of Thrones, “Winter is coming!” But along for the ride is a whole host of delicious heart warming comfort foods. Coming home when it’s dark is just so darn depressing, so for these  nights there is nothing greater than coming home to a delicious chicken casserole that’s ready to eat in minutes and will make your home smell amazing. My mum would always knock these out for weeknight dinners and we were always one happy family when she did (except for my brother Marv, whom is always difficult and hard to please, but that’s another story).

Gusto Loco Moco


Last week I was invited to try new Hawaiian restaurant  Gusto Loco Moco in Hongdae. When you walk through the doors you can’t help but have a smile upon your face. The bright and colorful restaurant is just what you need to put some sunshine into your life on a cold and dark evening. Continue reading
