EN Sakaba should be quite a familiar name by now. With multiple outlets across the island, the modern izakaya has attracted throngs of people with an attractive array of Japanese dishes that include chirashi don and yakiniku don. However, do you know that the best thing that EN Sakaba has to offer is actually their hotpot buffet which comes with a free flow of A5 Champion Miyazaki Wagyu, Zuwai Queen Crab, and Iberico Pork? This buffet was previously priced at $108 but is now going at just $78/pax. It's basically an insane deal that will leave you utterly satisfied and rubbing your tummy in glee.

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?
