The Goyang Guide
« on: September 01, 2018, 06:07:21 pm »
I just started a new blog about the city I live in - Goyang-Si. I'm hoping to post lots of reviews and things to do and see in the area. I decided to make it more expansive than just Ilsan which seems to get a lot of coverage as there are people living or working in other areas that don't have as much information on them.

https://thegoyangguide.com/

I've also made a Facebook page of the same name to try to get a community going. I hope to post to Facebook when I see events coming up in the area. So if you are interested in what is going on in Goyang make sure you like the page for updates. Also if you seen anything happening in the area feel free to post it to the page or DM The Goyang Guide about it.

You should check out jigae jigae if its still around it was across the street from the park in hwajeong. If its still there the kimchi jigae and egg rolls will drive you mad. If its not its a loss to humanity. Also 둥전갈국수 in jeongbalsan is to die for literally MSG lover heaven. Granted I lived in goyang 6 years ago and everything has probably changed.

I spent my first four years in Korea living in Goyang, it's a great place & I miss it sometimes.

Those fries sound like a nightmare, but nonetheless it's good that the burger itself is better than McDonald's or Burger King; generic burger shops in basements can be hit or miss. You didn't say enough about the ambience of the half dozen tables that you described so evocatively as being tucked away.

Also, the juxtaposition of available burger places with the metaphor of slimness?
GENIUS
This blog delights me on so many unexpected levels.

I prefer the Mcdonalds down the street. The restaurant you went to is a generic place that uses the cheapest possible burgers that are mostly fillers that might make it taste better but really it's just the salt derivatives.

Try the all you can eat buffet in Hwajeong or the Japanese restaurant beside immigration sort of. Great places with quality food.

Thanks very much for reading; I appreciate your thoughtful commentary. Sorry about the lack of ambience in my review. I will try to remember to include it in future reviews. However, if I may address it here, I think I would say it was typical of a department store food court so utilitarian at best.

Thanks for reading and for your thoughts on the restaurant. Always interesting to hear what other people have to say.

Thanks also for the recommendations. I am definitely hoping to try some more places in Hwajeong soon.
