Review: Enjoy Crepes and More at Brunch Cafe Ean


BUSAN, South Korea -- Haps readers who saw my September article about La Celtique, the creperie in Seoul, can now find relief in the knowledge that they do not have to go all the way to the capital to indulge in this dish.

Seoul`s Popular High Street Market Now Delivering Everywhere in Korea

SEOUL, South Korea -- While moving to Korea opens up myriad food options, it also closes down quite a few. Query the typical expat on what they miss most about home and you'll likely find several food items on the list. Be it their favorite deli meats, bakery items, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups or seasonal selections such as turkey dinner with all the fixings.

Thanks to Kip Richardson, an entrepreneurial-minded California native who's lived in Korea for over two decades, the list of expat longings has grown markedly shorter --and yes, that includes the Reeses.

Hangover Pub: Good Drink, Great Food and Quality Hangovers

BUSAN, South Korea -- A Holy Grail of food for Busan expats, fish n' chips is an often attempted yet rarely well-executed dish. It's either too much of this or too little of that and most often wholly unsatisfying with either. But there's hope in the back streets of Seomyeon. The recently-opened Hangover is a British/Irish fusion pub created by the husband and wife team behind the great food served up at the nearby Vito Italian Restaurant.
