These are mine!
BHC Fried Chicken - Brinkle Chicken
I'm sure you're like, "come on, Meredith, a chicken post is one of your top 5?." My answer is, "yes, yes it is." Not because of the post itself, per say, but just as a matter of the sheer number of times my friends and I have eaten BHC's Brinkle Chicken in the past year. It is definitely a hit and deserves a place on this list.
Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art - Julian Popp Exhibition (February 2016)
I just really enjoy going to MMCA near Anguk Station and seeing the new exhibits and installations as they come. It's a great peaceful trip.
Brasa in St. Paul, Minnesota
I have to give a shoutout to Brasa and to Minnesota. It was one of my trips this year and I made a special plan to go to Brasa on one of my few days in Minnesota, it's that good! Even though it was an almost -50 degree windchill, had to brave the cold to get me some good ole' meats and THE YUCCA FRIES AND GREEN SAUCE!
Japan Kansai Trip 2016 - 4 days, 3 nights itinerary
This year for Chuseok, I went back to Japan. This was also a great trip! Mainly because I was able to see my friend who I hadn't seen for about 3 years. We went to some places in Kyoto I have never been and we also ate some great food, of course!
Taiwan Trip 2016 - 4 days, 3 nights trip itinerary
This was a great escape from Seoul, Taiwan is always a good break from the hustle and bustle and the "bballi bbali" life in Seoul. I always leave and wish I had spent more time there. Next time, I definitely have to stay longer, so I can go to the Southern part of Taiwan.
