Running Man EP262: Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race [02]

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?

      Hi Arianne! I didn’t physically visit the restaurants in this Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race post. I only stared hard at the Running Man episodes for hints on where they might be and combed through the internet painfully for confirmation and addresses. I wish I will have a chance in near future to visit the places myself!
