Ok, yes, this is our second FAPFAP in a row. We have two WANKs filmed, but both of those are big project WANKs that depend on the schedules of other people we’ve partnered with for those videos, and both of them got delayed. Yargh! But they’re good delays! Really! Luckily, we had filmed another FAPFAP just in case our schedules changed, so hopefully you’re ok with two FAPFAPs in a row. Ain’t nothing wrong with some sexy food now, is there?

Though, this food isn’t really the sexiest. It’s just something we have crazy cravings for every once in a while. And, the problem is, this place is in Bucheon. Right at Songnae Station, the stop that we used to get off at when we lived in Bucheon. We’ve had other waffles since then. There’s even a Waffle Truck outside of our studio, right beside the Free Park, that even puts ice-freaking-cream in the waffles, but they’re still not as good as these badboys right here in Bucheon. Oh man. They’re so fresh and warm and goopy. So soft and succulent. And they’re 1,000 won, which is less than a dollar. LESS THAN A DOLLAR. What can you buy where you’re from that’s warm AND tastes really good that’s less than a dollar? Hard to find, right?

I’ll tell you what, though: I ate this the proper way. Martina wanted to hold it and talk about it, but that just ain’t right. That’s a disgrace to the time honoured tradition of waffle wolfing. Eat it fast when it’s warm and before the syrup coats your hand in a clove of sweet butter. There’s no dignified way of eating this meal. Just hoover. That’s the right way.

You know, Bucheon has some of our favourite food spots ever. Ajumma Samgyeopsal, Coffee Kitchen, this takoyaki place that’s only open from 7PM-4AM that’s better than the takoyaki we had in Tokyo, the mo-mil restaurant. The Meat Soup place! Bucheon was amazing for eating. Better than Seoul in many ways. We miss you, Bucheon!

What’s so cool about this place is that we say we went to Bucheon to eat it. You’d think we went to a restaurant. No. It’s literally in the subway station. Climb up the stairs, and right before you scan your card to get on the subway you’ll see the long line of people waiting for their waffles. It’s not even a chain. What’s amazing about it is that restaurants usually have such a high turnover rate here. They’re in business for six months or a year and then poof business went bad and they’re off somewhere else. These waffles have been in the same spot for as long as I can remember. They’ll outlast everyone. A shrine will be built in their honour at their 100 year anniversary, as their lines keep getting longer and longer.

So, if you’re driving past Bucheon on line 1 of the subway, make sure you stop off here and have a waffle, then hop back on the subway. It’ll be worth it. You know what else is worth it? Clicking this button below, right here. FREE WAFFLES TO ALL THE CLICKERS!

And, sorry guise, no bloopers for this one. We didn’t do that much talking and we tried to keep it short. We were also dreaming about the Waffles the whole way here, so we knew exactly what we were going to say. It was more like “OK SHUT UP AND EAT NAO” and, voila, no rambling. Next week, though: there should be rambling :D

  1. Simon always looks so guilty when he starts eating in the middle of a video.

  2. It’s a good thing I live above a waffle house because y’all have got me craving waffles.

  3. haha i think they pronounce his name funny lol it’s Mir from MBLAQ his name sounds like the word meer

  4. Mir is in a group called MBLAQ and they did a program where they tried to get into college. A part of the requirement was to know English. and there’s the pronunciation of our language that they kinda made fun of. and that’s where it all began…….
    at about 0:12 is where you can see it ^^

  5. Haha I missed what Martina was saying when Simon was singing in the background while washing his hands! Oh Simon… *shakes head*

  6. your so mean to mean Leigh…… so MEAN…. Leigh i love you!!!!1

  7. you like waffles? come to Belgium :D

  8. So i had to watch it one more time because simon’s voice describing his bathroom experience totally distracted me the first time.

  9. I don’t know where else to post this, but I want to say how grateful I am for SooZee and Leigh. Adding them to EYK was a great choice. Both the quality and quantity of the EYK videos have improved loads. Not saying that it was bad before, but as their audience is expanding, I think S&M made a very wise choice in expanding the crew as well. I don’t know exactly what work they do, but I can see the result, and it is awesome!
    Plus they’re fantastic-elastic hilarious gorgeous ladies and seem like great people to be around.
    To SooZee and Leigh!!!

  10. great. now i need waffle. /heads to Gosok Terminal Sta.

  11. Ermahgawsh it’s so cheap! In Melbourne, basic waffles are $4 and go up if you want different topics.

  12. Really diggin’ the polka dot shirt, Simon. I have a cute dress of the same material.

  13. Philadelphia has the best “Belgium Waffles” or so that is what the store calls it. I like to think of them as sweet pretzels because you know those huge chunks of salt that are on pretzels? Well these waffles have basically big chunks of sugar instead. And they put other crap in there like fruit, chocolate, blah, blah. But it is the sugar that makes it awesome!

  14. Don’t say apple butter! I swear it can’t be apple butter because it isn’t creamy! Apple butter is really just overcooked apple sauce. What was in the middle of the waffles looked too white and creamy.

  15. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it in videos before, but Martina, where did you get your hat? I know you guys have the bowler hats in your store, but that one is so perfect with the little brim!!

  16. ummm… 1000 won on Argentina.. are $7,37 pesos.. For us, buying that Waffle, for example, it’s like you guise buying it for Seven dollars.. Not cheap… :/

    • I think it should be more thought of as how that amount is spent within that country rather than comparing it with other countries’ economical status (although Simon and Martina often converts it to Canadian Dollar when thinking about it).

      I think 1000 won would be spent like how $1 or 100 yen would be spent in other countries.

  17. Mmmmmm those look just like my moms home made waffers with, fresh home made butter syrup mmmmm. dang now i want some Nooooo! tee hee poor mir but I just can’t say waffles the same way any more. :)

  18. Hahaha you can’t talk about Waffles without talking about Mir ^^ haha

  19. My favorite variety of waffle would have to be Belgian. The liege waffles have pearl sugar spread throughout, or basically sugar balls that caramelize into little crunchy sweet spots in the waffle while it’s cooking. It’s caramelly-crispy on the outside but super light and fluffy on the inside. You could eat it alone, but you could alsoooo put speculoos (biscoff spread!) and all sorts of goodies on top. Wafels and Dinges in Manhattan or Saus in Boston!

  20. Your subway stations look like our long distance train stations. I don’t know if I would be brave enough to eat something made in the NYC subway. Public transportation looks so much more civilized in Korea. Waffles looked yum..

  21. I replayed the “while Martina is talking” part like 3 times…. u guises are sooo funny…
    I have to go to Korea… *—–*

  22. Wow, those waffles look great! I think that the half moon shape folded in half is also handy/great for eating, even better than when you fold your pizza slice in half. Hmmmm….maybe I should just make small pizzas to get a half-moon folding shape – super convenient!

    BTW, so far, all the twitter links have put me through to the blog (with video) and even the EYK site has shown the content pretty much right away. I think the problem is fixed. ^_^v

  23. ahahaha i was only paying attention to Simon singing about washing his hands, then he finished and i realised that Martina was talking!!

  24. WAPPUL!
    Loooove it! I miss waffles like back in the States. Here in Japan the waffles are often the crunchy ones you were mentioning, Martina.
    FINGERS CROSSED I’ll be going to Seoul for Japan’s Golden Week (first week of May…ish), so then maybe I’ll go on an adventure for WAPPUL!

  25. Hey I was wondering what people who don’t know how to cook have for food options other than eating out in Korea.
    Is frozen food and pre-prepped foods a thing in Korea?

    • Pre-packaged foods are quite popular, probably even more so than in USA. You can find it convenience stores, or just about any place that sells food. Frozen foods, not so popular. I guess it got squeeze out among fast food, ramyun noodles and stuff from convenience store stuffs.

  26. Did Leigh eventually get her waffle? xD

  27. Vietnamese waffles are amazing. They are called Pandan waffles (aka bánh kẹp lá dứa). The batter is made from pandan favouring and coconut milk and eaten plain. They cost $1.50 where I’m from

  28. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH NOT AGAIN I should not stay up this late. Because when I do you guys post food. And then I get hungry. I should sleep before these things happen and then find your delicious looking food videos in the morning as a surprise. When I am *supposed* to be hungry. xD But NooooooOoooooOoOOoo… nnrrrrgh… hungry… off to find some toast.. because I have no waffles. T_T

    P.S.: I love waffles. ;___;

    P.P.S.: “Do ya like waffles~?”

  29. They look so goooood! :Q__ Btw I saw a lot of these small pastry thingies sold at subway stations… You usually got them in a bag and they smelled good but I never tried. I didn’t know what they were so I was too scared to try. OTL

  30. I’m living in Asan right now, and my university campus has a waffle stand as well, also for cheon won. Though from the sound of it, they’re not nearly as good. They have that syrup stuff and whipping cream sort of stuff, but I’ve never liked the syrup, so I always end up asking for it without it (too sweet for my taste). Also, the waffle isn’t soft. It’s crunchy, and while I like that, I do prefer my waffles a little softer. Man, I need to take a trip down the other side of Line 1 (‘cuz Asan is also on Line 1, but not the same one as Bucheon, since it splits at some point).

  31. Curse youuuuu for making me drool two weeks in a row! This is not fair you guys :( On a similar note to waffles, I recently tried Taiyaki for the first time in London and errrmagerd it’s so good!! Can you get it over there as well?

    Also if you like the apple butter then I really recommend you try out this cake recipe (don’t curse me for ruining your diet… It’s totally worth it):

    It’s literally the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever had. Although, a small tip from me would be that instead of her caramel sauce, just melt some normal caramels/butter toffees and pour them over. I also added a nice heaped teaspoon of cinnamon to the cake batter, which worked out even better. Though I suppose nutmeg would work, too. OH, and using half butter, half oil (instead of all oil) also works out better xD

  32. OK …. now I’m hungry. Why am I not in Korea????

    • teleportation should really be a thing

      • Well, at this hour (well, in Korea) I think I would have to go after my #1 addiction (well, food addiction) – bulgogi.

        • My addictions are mandu, jeon, samgyeopsal, and well…….. all of it? I love it all lol

        • I’m kind of stuck here too. Its not so much we don’t have a few places – its just out mass-trans. system absolutely bites (and the best place is right on the edge of the hood). But if you get that teleporter up and running – can you swing by here. I wonder if Simon and Martina are famous enough to need a driver/bodyguard??

        • Well, at least you have a good “way in” for visiting or moving to Korea. Me, I’m just your average (well, big) redheaded waygookin. And I saw something about Korean fried chicken on tv once (well, it was a show about wings and that was one type the host talked about). While I haven’t had any yet, it looked absolutely amazing. I think if I ever do make it over to Korea I’ll need to first get a gym membershp and only then, go out to eat.

        • Oh, you don’t wear long sleeves and that sun-visor/welder’s mask thing?? Well, I could lend you some of my paleness. If it was a sport, I would be the MVP of Paleness. Other than my size, my paleness would be the envy of Seoul …. but then I would get hated on for all kinds of other stuff.
          Here, in Baltimore, we have an amazing music school – so we get a lot of Koreans and Chinese students. Sadly, they normally never stay and so no real community – like that out in CA, ever really formed up (or that I know of). But I would love to see the nicer sides of California .. sadly, that whole job thing seemingly gets in the way of most of my “fun” (or fun things I want to do)

        • Nope, I don’t wear the long sleeves or that sun-visor thingy. In CA, we don’t try to get pale. I mean…. Its the end of february and its bright and sunny with a cooling breeze outside. So really, the weather of CA is just a lot of sun, you can’t avoid it. If you can give me some of that paleness, that would be great! Maybe we can do an exchange, some of my tanness for some of your paleness? lol well, CA is great with Asian food, so if you ever get the chance to go, do it. Save up some money, go in the non-touristy season :) and go to Korea/China/Japan- town. Or just google what you wanna eat and we probably got it lol.

  33. Oh, and question for you guys, have you encounter the ballroom dancing scene in Seoul yet? My teacher teaches some of the workshops over there and in Tokyo awhile back, and according to him, its quite nice.

  34. It’s 12:35 AM and basically I am a masochist for watching this now. I wish there was a subway waffle vendor here. Or I guess it’d be a skytrain waffle vendor in my case.

  35. Do you guys ever visit Cheese Lady when you’re in Bucheon?

  36. Lovely! When are you coming to Korea?

    • Welp it depends on the money situation. We may go next year with his mother. She goes there yearly for a month or so to visit family. Ooootherwise the main goal is to go in two years. I’ll be completely done with college by then. 8D Mwahaha~!

  37. Hey I live at Songnae station!!!! They aren’t kidding, there is ALWAYS a line at the waffle stand.

  38. There is a 24-hour IHOP open a few blocks away…

    Guess where I’m going because of this video? I have to remember to bring my own syrup though… Maple Syrup is yummy!

    • Your IHOP doesn’t have maple syrup? The one here doesn’t put it out on the table with the other 4 flavors, but you can ask for it and they will bring it out. They will even warm it up for you. :)
