I am back with Part 2 of the Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race broadcast on 30 August 2015! This post has taken longer than expected because I went overseas for a short trip and busy with work. Yeah, all the excuses. It’s plainly because I was lazy.
A whole lot of pictures in this post, so less words. Yay for you! Hope you are full when reading this post though. Or you’ll end up like me, always taking a break from the post to fill my tummy with meat.
Are you ready? Let’s go!
Gary, Haha and Nam Bora were first brought to eat Kimchi Stew (김치찌개) at a restaurant near Hongdae.
In case you don’t find the dish too appetizing while watching Running Man, I found more high definition photo of the dish! Did I just hear you gulp?
This is how the restaurant looks like on the exterior.
The dish Running Man ordered is Kimchi Stew priced at 13,000won (1 portion for 2 pax).
