Origin Grill might be relatively new, but it certainly is here to stay. The solid outfit, which sits in Shangri-La Hotel, prides itself on putting some of the rarest beef on the plates of discerning diners. Many come here for the Shiro Kin Full Blood Wagyu and Snow-Aged Full Blood Wagyu, but do you also know that the chefs whip up really delicious pastas too? In addition, on top of having quite a spectacular collection of wines, and range of decadent sweet treats, Origin Grill goes a step further to please with an executive set lunch menu($34/$45) that can be described with just one word — unbelievable.

Mangwon Market - Fewer Tourists, More Food, Loved by the Seoulites

Mangwon Market is loved by the locals. There are way fewer tourists here as compared to Gwangjang Market, or Noryangjin Market. I found the food offerings here to be more appealing than those available at the other markets. If you're thinking of coming by, this post on the must eats, or what to eat at Mangwon Market might be useful!

24 Guesthouse Namsan - The WORST Place to Stay in Myeongdong(Seoul)

If you’re heading to Seoul, DON'T DON'T DON'T stay at 24 Guesthouse Namsan in Myeongdong. 

I booked this room for 7 nights (22nd - 29th June) for $53.85/night via Airbnb. It's a single room with private bathroom and tv. When I checked in, I was told by the receptionist that they didn’t have a single room and they will give me a room for 2. I was confused so I said huh, and he repeated himself again. I thought he meant a twin bedroom or a double bed room. Guess what room I got?

The Unkai Terrace in Hokkaido promises a mind-blowing and breathtaking sight. Go on a gondola ride up the mountain, be prepared to arrive above a sea of moving clouds, and be treated to one of the most beautiful sights. The journey here is definitely not an easy one, but good things are worth working for, right? The terrace is only open from mid May to mid October, and I'll recommend that you go in August or September for the best possible view. The type of unkai that you'll see depends on a variety of factors such as humidity and temperature.
