Girls Day Out



I was inspired by Martha's pizza day and Deb Logan's girls' day out to blog about taking my two closest friends here in Korea out on the town. It will probably be our last time together since Barbara is returning to Canada at the end of the school year.

We went to an area in Seoul called Samcheong-dong. It's a little upscale and the prices are higher there but it's got a quaint old Korea mixed with European feel.


We ate at an Italian restaurant called 8 Steps (although we couldn't figure out why since it had more than 8 steps leading up to it). I ordered Caesar salad and pumpkin soup.
Then we strolled around and window shopped and finished up our excursion at a cute cake shop that had dark chocolate cakes.





We even did some photo shoots of ourselves (note: this is the serious photo) and had way too much fun.

Love to see friends out having fun - it's so hard to make time sometimes. Between work and family - friends sometimes get squeezed to the back of the calendar.

I think it's funny that you're in Korea but went to an Italian restaurant for lunch.
Is there an American restaurant in Korea? What do they serve, hamburgers?

Christina Farley said...

It was fun!

Beth- I checked it out. Looks great.

Meg- Korean restaurants are everywhere- of course!- and cheap so if you want to do something special, we wouldn't go there. The American restuarants would be like a TGI Fridays or Pizza Hut.

But things don't taste quite the same as back home. It's definitely fusion in a sense. Just like Chinese food in the states often doesn't taste like Chinese food in China!

Burgers, now that is tough to find. Been here 7 years and have yet to find a good burger. I have to go back to the States for that.
