[Korea] Caffe Bene Mango Bingsu 카페베네 망고 빙수

In the Korean summer, Caffe Bene is a major destination of mine for bingsu

Which is your favorite Bene bingsu? Leave a comment below. :)
I think the Bene green tea bingsu is my favorite, but I decided to test out the mango bingsu because I am a major fan of mango anything.

[Minneapolis, UMN] Keefer Court - Chinese Bakery and Cafe

Keefer Court is the only Chinese bakery in Minnesota. One of the things I miss most about living in Asia is Asian bread and pastries, so I had to have a try.

CASH ONLY!

[Korea Tour Itinerary, Chuncheon] Nami Island in Winter (Winter Sonata Drama Filming Location)

I have been to Nami Island (Nami Sum) two times. Once in the cold of winter and once in the blistering heat of summer. It is the filming location for the very popular Korean drama, "Winter Sonata."

Nami Island is a great day trip from Seoul and is easily accessible via subway. It is located in/nearby Chuncheon and is on the teal subway line and ITX.

[NYC Midtown West] Holey Cream - NYC's First Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwich


I first stumbled upon Holey Cream about 2.5 years ago. I was really craving a doughnut, as one does, and ice cream. I was so excited when I found I could combine/fulfill both cravings in this HUGE use of my daily calorie count with a doughnut ice cream sandwich!

I love "hybrid food." What is your favorite food hybrid?!

[Busan] Shinsegae Centum City Department Store 부산 신세계 백화점

Shinsegae is one of many luxury department stores in Korea. Others include Hyundai and Lotte.
They have almost everything you would ever want and are a great place to kill time.

Like the one at Express Bus Terminal in Seoul, this store has many options.
One nice thing about being a foreigner in Korea is the Global Tax Free shopping. When I'm shopping at more established brand stores (like department stores and most makeup stores), I always ask for "Global Tax Free."

Read more about Global Tax Free shopping and food courts.

BellyQ is a modern Asian fusion restaurant on Chicago's West Side. There are two menus here, one is more traditional Korean tabletop barbeque meats and the other is the Asian fusion menu. My friend and I opted for the Asian fusion menu for something different.
