Sometimes I miss the real deal!! A real solid honest-to-goodness hamburger tastes good!! Same with Mexican food!!

There's a decent burger place in Coex. Worth taking a look at.

How is Pancho's in Itaewon for food? I stopped by there for a bit while bar-hopping one time and the margaritas weren't much (although, admittedly, not as bad as the no-salt no-ice one I had in my town) and I've been burned too many times by Itaewon restaurants not to be wary...

I like "Freshness Burger" in Myong Dong, that's how I imagine burgers when people talk about "a real burger"

Mediocre and pricey from the few times I've tried it.

So, in other words excellent by Itaewon foreign restaurant standards?
Let me guess, the portions are also miniscule? Sad

The quesadillas were miniscule, yes.

There is a new restaurant in Sunae-dong Bundang called Tex-Mex. Anyone been there?

Someone tell me Chili Chili is still in business!


Previous location:
Noksapyeong subway station, Line 6, on the right side of the road heading to Namsan Tunnel No. 3.

What's the door number?

Haven't yet, but if anyone needs directions, exit Sunae Station like your heading toward Seohyun. I forget the door number.

Walk up the court area and cross a couple streets. You'll see some car dealerships on the ground floor. Look to the left. You'll see the place on the opposite side of the street. They're on the 2nd floor.

They don't sound half bad. Worth a trip.

For the record: Anything item you purchase at Taco Bell is about as tasty as one of my bowel movements after a night of drinking mass quantities of CASS.

There is only one TRUE Mexican fast-food joint. It has a name. Its name is TACO CABANA.

Everytime you eat Taco Bell you stab in the heart true lovers of the world's greatest food, TEX-MEX.

Shame on you.



TACO CABANA triumphs over Taco Bell anyday. I think it's the pink paint they put on the outside. But if you really want the full TEX MEX experience, you'll have to come to South Austin and try the TEXICAN CAFE over on Manchaca Road. Personally, you'd have to threaten my arse with a blowtorch and a pair of needle nose pliers to get me to eat at Taco Bell [of course things may change once I get to the East].

Please post a report when you go. I don't want to go all the way to Bundang for a taco and be disappointed.

I've got a picture of a real burger on my digital camera. My roommate had a cookout last night, and we casually call these beasts that he makes "Deathburgers". It's impossible to eat two of them, unless you take a huge breather between each one.

When I get a chance, I'll post a few pictures of that bad boy on here.

The problem with that is that people who don't know any better do the reports. Until a southern American/Mission-eating San Franciscan verifies a place's tastiness, I ain't goin'.

Better than baked beans, I can tell you that much. I still have nightmares about that funky-ass burrito.

Rice isn't bad in a burrito...when it comes to Mission, it's all about size and price.

On a scale from 1- 10
how do the burritos from HB stack up?

7/8. Mostly because the refried beans/sour cream issue is all over the place, and the meat never ends up quite seasoned enough.

On the plus side, George is still a great cook, and the open ingredients style enables you to put in whatever you want. If the beans/cream issue is ever stabilized, they'd be some good-ass burritos.
