Department of Caffeine (D.O.C)

There are countless coffee joints opening every month or so. And I mostly tend to get to know them through my social media addiction - Instagram. Within days of Department of Caffeine's opening last year, I visited the place once with my cafe-hopping buddy to check out the uber new kid on the block. The place was still relatively unknown, and so, there were only one or two tables occupied in our time there. Unfortunately, all the photos taken on that day were lost due to some error in formatting when I transferred the images from my memory card to the laptop. Bah. Fret not though, I did manage to visit it twice more.

Omakase Burger

There was much talk about Omakase Burger when it first opened in 2012. It took me a whole year, before I managed to try it in late 2013, in December. I remember the exact date in fact, as it was the day of the Standard Chartered Marathon 2013, and I was absolutely starving after the race as I only got to eat my first meal of the day at about two in the afternoon. Yeah. So. As I was saying, I popped by the store, super eager to get my hands on some burger and fries.

Seoul 2013: 가로수길 (Garosu-gil)

I hope everyone has had a great Lunar New Year! For once, I was out of town for the first part of CNY. Daddy decided last minute to travel out of town during the festive period, and somehow or other, it became a family trip.

We considered locations like Korea (rejected as they have three days of public holidays and we were afraid shops would be closed), Australia (last minute tickets were too expensive!), before finally settling on Japan. I was quite apprehensive actually, for it wasn't too long ago since the radiation saga occurred, but since the family didn't had any issues, Japan it was.

It was a very short trip as I could only take two additional days of leave. The Sis, the Bro-in-Law and I flew there on CNY eve night, after having our reunion dinner at home, while the elders flew one night after us. Will talk more about the trip next time (well, in the future coming months ahead, time TBA, haha as it is in the queue after my 2013 vacations to Korea and Australia).

So, to hurry along the process of vacation travelogue posts, here's the third post for my Seoul 2013 trip. We popped by Garosu-gil in the early morning, and basically ate (and drank) our way through the day there. Food spots of the day:
  • Deux Creme
  • La Eskimo
  • Pain De Papa
  • Hanchu Fried Chicken
  • La Alaska
  • Independent Coffee
