Budae Jjigae in Hyewha

The other day, TW and I agreed to meet at Seoul Station after his work. It was my first time to go that far alone (with my daughter). You see, we live in Siheung City so my daughter and I had to take a bus to go to the nearest subway station which is Bucheon. Luckily we didn't have to transfer. But my head spinned when we got off the train, it was so crowded. Blame it on the rush hour maybe. We had to wait for about 15mins for TW. Then we took Line 4 to go to Hyewha. He knows of a retaurant in Hyewha that serves Budae Jjigae, one of my favorite comfort foods.
Outside the station, we saw some clothing stores offering 50-80 % sale discounts. We went to check them out but didn't really find anything we want. Unfortunately it wasn't a Sunday, there's no Filipino market. I've been craving for sinigang and Chippy. ^v^
Anyways the Budae Jjigae was exactly the type I wanted. Usually they put some overfermented kimchi or some pork and beans (which I really hate), but here it was somewhat milder. Probably because of the cheese. But I loved it. We also ordered Chicken salad for S, since she really hates eating spicy food. And it was also good.
I guess it was worth the long trip. Next time I go to Hyewha, it'll be for the Market.

I'm Back

It's been some time since my last post. No, I'm not neglecting the blog. I got my hands on a lot of things since I moved to Korea. And yes I will be posting a lot about the place, the food, people and a lot more. It has been a very interesting experience for me. Expect more posts in the coming weeks.
