Another area I am much more fond of, which is close to the (in)famous Itaewon subway stop, is Noksapyeong, home to the two streets known as Haebangchon (HBC) and Gyeongridan. Located here are tons of delicious America-esque food choices, the yummy Jacoby's Burger (the best burger I have had in Seoul), the fabulous Indigo restaurant and Craftworks, famous for its brunch and Bloody Marys. There are a ton of cute cafe's, bars and clubs that make up what is known as the "hipster" foreigner area, haha much more my style!
Went to Itaewon one day after work this week, and here are a couple of my purchases that make my life much happier: )
- Tillamook cheese! (13 dollars, but TOTALLY worth it!)
- green olives
- Skippy peanut butter
- Boxed mac and cheese
- Nag Champa - (I love when this is the smell of my life, reminds me of home...)
- Taco Bell, which turns out is just as shitty as it is back home. Hurts so good!
Also, if you haven't watched this music video, do so at your own risk. It is a damn catchy tune. ITAEWON FREEDOM!!
(and for your viewing pleasure, the other classic Gangnam Freedom, very close to my home and one of my favorites!)Pin It
