This site is fantasatic! Really thorough,  I haven't looked through everything but as far as I could see it's Seoul-centric. Is this true? No Busan love? Would love a site like this for Busan.

Perri, thanks for the compliment! I do my best on the site. I really dig busan but I've only been down there a few times. Even still I've hit a few places there and blogged about them. Check it out under http://kissmykimchi.com/category/travel/domestic/busan/

in the meantime you can also take a gander at IU http://kissmykimchi.com/2011/07/kmk-kpop-profile-iu.html/

Amazing site! I haven't looked through everything at the moment because I'm deskwarming/lesson planning but it's very informative and I can't wait to read and learn about some interesting places; I'm always looking for somewhere new to travel/visit. :)

The epiphany hit me like a slap in the face:  Iíd become accustomed to bad Italian. Second, the point was driven home when I finally had genuinely great Italian food at Jennyís Cafe in Hongdae.

As a resident of Haebonchon itís almost a duty to visit every establishment in the area just to be neighborly. To that end Iíve made Le Cafe my latest spot to cover.

If youíre a gamer then no doubt you know all about Final Fantasy. If youíre not a gamer then let me explain that Final Fantasy (FF) is one of if not the most loved and played video game series ever developed.

Santorini Taverna turned out to be an unexpected surprise. Usually I like surprises but only when they end up being good ones.  Disappointing barely describes my experience at this Greek restaurant.

The last live music event I attended I found myself dancing in the aisle while Mary J Blige wailed away on the stage. Moments like that are hard to top, but Iím more than willing to try. So when my friend Sonia told me about an up coming live music event I had to share.

http://kissmykimchi.com/2011/11/kmk-sumo.html/

I couldnít even figure out why I was becoming such a sumo sycophant. It wasnít like I had any deep love for the sport or any childhood affectionate movies to relate to. Back in the States the closest Iíd come to Sumo was playing E Honda on Street Fighter. Maybe that was enough. As I entered the Ryogoku Kokugikan arena in Tokyo I imagined hulking Japanese hairless bears circling each other. With bruised reddened cheeks theyíd toss each other around, delivering body blows and hundred handed slaps with meaty hands. I didnít really expect the E Honda special torpedo move across the ring, but I could hope!

Latte King may be small but they have everything you need when it comes to what you want in a cafe. First, lets get the bare minimun necessity out of the way. The number one thing I look for in a cafe is whether or not they offer free wifi. Latte King does.
