My Korean colleague suggested this place – it’s a new tower in Seoul and it has shopping mall inside. Very classy place, like Pavilion KL vibes. Unfortunately Lotte Mart & it’s shops were closed that day we went so we didn’t manage to try the food court. Other restaurants were packed. 👑 #crown #soshiny #gold!… Continue reading Korea Spring – Seoul – Lotte World Tower

The night before, we couldn’t finish our chicken dinner. So for breakfast today, I shredded the chicken and friend cooked instant noodles. Tasty and this time we added kimchi, bought from CU or GS25 (very common convenience store in Korea).
