I had a meal at Crystal Jade in Somerset Palace Hotel in Seoul. Not bad not good. Scarcely acceptable quality as a whole. Unable to finish the Dandan noodles I ordered for the main, which, people say, is amongst the best ones at Crystal Jade. The noodles emitted a noticeably offensive wheat odour. Moreover, unpleasing […]
I eat Jjamppong once every three or four years. It is the day! I indulged in thick and heavy-sauced soup.

We, a company of three, visited the original restaurant, which recently moved to Olympian City near Mong […]
Stopped by a dim sum restaurant, on the way to another one, Tim Ho Wan, for I saw many aged people inside the restaurant. I always believe that the restaurant with the old never fails. However, found that they were so and so. But one dumpling that I would like to take notice was shark […]
