Had a meal in a Korean restaurant. Ordered pencil squid in two versions – hoe(raw fish); cold and spicy soup. Then, sea snail noodles. Sea snail noodles were my first trial, and I should say that it was the best food I’ve had on Jeju island.
Good wine, good food, they are not in daily events. In particular, it is a rare moment that the tasting buds and all the senses of the body arise with a sip of wine. It hardly happens, but this was the day. Started with cheap but savoury white wine from the South West region of […]
It was quite a serendipity. On the way to Park Sugeon Museum, I happened to stop at a restaurant for lunch. It was a Makguksu specialised restaurant in Inge, Gangwon-do. When served, I was a bit surprised by its minimalistic look. No spicy paste and no sesame oil flavour. Pressed to try it and had […]
When taking a photo, people say ‘cheese’, but ‘Kimchi’ instead of cheese for Koreans. I suppose many Koreans are more pleasant with Kimchi than with cheese. Vice versa may be possible.

Self-made dish, not noodles itself. Tasted marvellous. Almost perfectly cooked, and when mixed the coordination of all ingredients was beautiful. Incredibly delicious! Ricchissimo!
Wild pig terrine and ‘Vin de Paille’! The food and the wine became heavenly great. Both were full of flavour and taste. Vin de Paille was good, exceptionally and incredibly good. Sweet but not too sweet. Acidic but slightly. Limpid but not insipid. It was rather everlastingly flavorous. The flavour kept extremely long in the […]
Kimchi is good, yet could hardly have a real good one. At the country home, as is remote and quite isolated, available with decent stuff like water, cabbage, and spices, all made exceptionally delicious kimchi. To make kimchi and to eat it was fast and instant. Once my wife messages cabbage leaves with sauce, Martin […]
Tortilla Espanola! Simple but Excellent. With pastured eggs and garden onions, it turned heavenly food.
