[韓國] 到韓國人家裡做客,體驗道地韓國料理

許多時候,在旅行的途中,礙於時間的限制與行程的安排,只能走馬看花。往往,我們只到當地著名的景點前拍照留念,就算是到此一遊了。

但旅遊的真正樂趣,在於了解在地人的生活及文化故事。唯有如此,才能在心中留下深刻的回憶。

今年夏天,我跟凱文飛到韓國拍婚紗照,順便觀光。出發前,我輾轉的認識了Anispoon (又名「愛食粉」)這個平台。 繼續閱讀!

[Korea] Experiencing Your First Home-Cooked Meal in Korea – Anispoon

What makes a trip memorable for you? Participating in local events? Learning to cook local food? Or picking up a few words from the foreign language? For me, it is making friends with the locals and tasting home-cooked food. We had the perfect opportunity to ate at a Korean’s home this summer. After the meal, we put on the beautiful hanbok and chatted about what it is like to live in Korea. Do we know the host beforehand? Nope. Then, how did that happen? Click to read more!

Calgary Restaurant: Model Milk

There seems to be a correlation in the amount you pay and how good the food tastes in Calgary’s restaurant scene. I am not saying that you can never find delicious cheap eats in the city. They certainly exists but are as scarce as hen’s teeth (if you’re looking for recommendations, Holy Grill and Banana Leaf are the rare gems hidden in the city). That’s not to say that expensive restaurants will never fail you. Those exceptions are the ones you want to avoid (take Corbeaux Bakehouse as an example). Click to read more!

Calgary Restaurant: The Embarcadero

The Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront of the Port of San Francisco, also an oyster bar stood on the east side of 17th Ave in Calgary. The restaurant is disguised as a home, which makes it so easy to miss. We’ve actually drove by it so many times in the past without notice.

Calgary Restaurant: Corbeaux Bakehouse

Corbeaux, the French-inspired bakery-cafe on 17th Avenue, is a (relatively) new kid in town. I’ve visited a few times on my own over the past few months. The desserts and pastries were wonderful beyond descriptions. Sitting along the south-facing windows and bathing in sunlight, I immersed myself in tranquility.  Click to read more!

Calgary Restaurant: Shibuya Izakaya

What would be a casual place to meet up with friends and have a drink? If you were in Japan, you look for izakaya (i.e. Japanese bar). A few izakaya could be found in Calgary, Shibuya being one of them.  Click to read more!

Calgary Restaurant: Saltlik

At this year’s Big Taste, Kev and I visited Saltlik at downtown Calgary. In contrast to its low-profile, refined exterior, the steakhouse’s lively and upbeat atmosphere lures young crowds of steak lovers. With people chattering and music playing in the background, you quickly notice its difference from other elegant steakhouses such as Vintage. Instead of a “steakhouse”, I am more inclined to categorize it as a “lounge”.

Upon seating, we were given the regular dinner menu despite having told the host we came for the Big Taste festival. We had to specifically ask for the Big Taste menu. Between the two of us, we basically ordered everything on the menu (prix fixe dinner at $35 pp) and shared among ourselves 🙂IMG_0731 Click to read more
