Motor City Pizza in Itaewon – The Best Thing to Come Out of Detroit Since Slim Shady

Doughnut Plant NYC – Trans Fat-Free Doughtnuts in Gyeongridan. Can This Be True?
Doughnut Plant NYC has headed back to the big apple. Closed. Yes, believe it or not, I still write. But a big thanks to Erik for his excellent contributions as DerekvsLP continues to expand.

Bonny’s Pub in HBC – A Great Choice for Pizza and Brews
Bonny’s was supposed to the be the first stop on a craft beer tour, but as many of my tours involving the brew, it ended prematurely and without any type of coherent documentation.

Craftworks – The King of Craft Beer in Seoul and the Food’s Not that Half Bad Now Either.
Reviewing Craftworks Taphouse and Bistro is tricky because I’ve been there countless times over the course of my time here in Seoul, and like any relationship it has had its ups and downs. It was love at first bite, then we hit a rocky patch, and now, after a roller coaster ride of a relationship, […]
Battle of the Bookstores: What The Book versus Itaewon Foreign Book Store
Two stores, two very different experiences. One store feels like a small town, locally owned independent bookstore with a collection that has spanned over decades. The other store feels like a giant, soulless corporately owned MegaBox store with a vast selection of books, neatly organized into sections without a speck of dust touching their covers. […]
