Korean restaurants in Brazilian paper (2)

Standard

The article’s main illustration.The piece claims Aclimação is some sort of Little Korea in São Paulo, what with its Korean restaurants and… well, that’s pretty much all you can find there (and, as far as I know, you cannot find thaaaaat many). I’ve always thought Bom Retiro was much more “Korean” than any other neighbourhood in the city, but maybe I have to update my views.Check out more posts from this collaboration HERE.Check out the other collaborators’ blogs here.Check out The Korea Blog!

Korean restaurants in Brazilian paper

Standard

Korean restaurants mentioned by an article in today’s paper. According to the writer, Cho Sun Ok is more orthodox and, apparently, if you visit, chances are you’ll be one of the very few westerners there (maybe like in those Korean restaurants near Centre Point in London?).Lua Palace is the other recommended Korean restaurant and a nice place if you want to try the country’s cuisine for the first time.And just forget about Khanl el Khalili, which is a tea house and appears here only because I was in a hurry (i.e., late for work) and could not bother to scan properly and rearrange the images.(Taken with instagram)Check out more posts from this collaboration HERE.Check out the other collaborators’ blogs here.Check out The Korea Blog!

Lua Palace is the other recommended Korean restaurant and a nice place if you want to try the country’s cuisine for the first time.

And just forget about Khanl el Khalili, which is a tea house and appears here only because I was in a hurry (i.e., late for work) and could not bother to scan properly and rearrange the images.

Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang – a TV commercial

Video

This is a Samsung commercial in response to the fact that the city of Pyeongchang will be hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics. Obviously, I don’t understand a single thing they’re saying (besides de the name of the city, haha), but I think it is a nice little video, what with everybody cheering, the snow falling during summer and the snowball fight. Lovely!
