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. was hoping you could go to “thanks nature cafe” to try this !

  2. I`m hoping you can go to “thanks nature cafe” in donghae to try this !.

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

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

    If you guys are looking for that same apple jelly stuff, you can get them on waffles infront of Ewha’s Main Gate! I always get half strawberry, half vanilla, and then with that apple magic jelly….delish!
    (But it’s perhaps not quite as soft as it looks in your video. But still closer than Bucheon!)

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

  7. “mer”? who’s “mer”?

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

  9. bouhbouhification

    you like waffles? come to Belgium :D

  10. Nongtipa Limson

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

    Seeing this video and the pictures in the comments of waffles makes me want waffles now lol I remember when I was in 8th grade, my math and science teacher did waffle day every 3-4 months to celebrate birthdays. He brought his own waffle maker and made them from scratch. It was a big machine thing though! *Don’t mind me. Just reminiscing on memories.* xD He was one of the coolest teachers I ever had though ^^

  12. I’m now really curious about the entire thing with Mir and waffles. I might have to look that up.

    Anyway, I love waffles! So this looked really good. I’m just curious. Is the apple butter on the only option, or are there different flavors?

  13. 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!!!

    I’m planning a trip to Korea with my sisters (crazy Jamaicans, could make for a hilarious K-Drama script) and so far, I know where I’m eating and where I’m getting my eye lash extensions. Thanks Simon and Martina! Your WANK’s and FAPFAP’s are helping me build an amazing 3-week itinerary that’s not just full of Korean Palace tours.

    • Erica Ferguson

      Not to say all I will be doing is eating and eye lash extending…what I mean is it’s great to see a perspective other than what is normally written in a typical tour guide. I’ll be there for three weeks and sometimes, a girl just gets tired of playing tourist and wants to do “normal” things.

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

  16. Gracie グレイス

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

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

  18. o god I am so jealous. Waffles here are just standard, unless you make them yourself. Which I can’t :(( And we have nothing like that in our subways. All we get is iffy sandwiches and candy bars lol. BTW: everyone’s pictures of different waffles look soooo good

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. 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!!

  22. Waffle-licious~!

  23. KaleighBailey

    Ahhhh…now I want waffles ;~;

    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… :/

    • Nao Chronicles

      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.

  25. 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. :)

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

    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!

    Yea the Seoul Subway stations are a lot cleaner/ organized etc that the subways in London. Although I found myself getting in the way on the carriage. (I’m only 6ft ;( ) Simon must have issues with his giant-ness-ness

  29. Steve Kendrick

    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..

  30. Current exchange rate: 1000KRW = 1.05CAD. 1000KRW = 0.94USD. Still cheap, but I’m sad our Canadian dollar has fallen so much.

    • yuki kokoro

      Where are you taking these numbers? I have 1000KRW = 0.96CAD. and 1000KRW = 0.93USD. I’d like to know if the app I’m using for years is that bad!!!

  31. Brittnay Bond

    …mmmm I had pancakes so im not as hungry for waffles as I would be, but I want waffles. D: why you do this, guise?

  32. yuki kokoro

    I’ve never liked waffles but I can assure you that there is no FAPFAP video that doesn’t make me want to taste the food! As for warm food that I like for less than a dollar?? Forget it! I’m pretty sure that no warm food ever can be bought for less than a dollar where I live.

  33. Mmmm but crispy waffurs sound good to me…I guess I’m good to go anywhere in Korea, hurray!

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

  35. Cyber_3

    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

  36. Saehee Park

    cant wait for the WANKS!!!
    at first i was disappointed it wasnt a WANK and then i read the description and became very happy

  37. ingloriouskitty

    Omg, when I was travelling around Korea (took a lot of trains XD) I pretty much lived on these! So good! But I noticed different regions had different takes in it. In Jinju they served it with jam and whipped cream but in Gwangju You can choose different flavoured syrups. My korean is pretty limited so it was always a surprise what flavoured syrup I would get XD Mystery waffles, I miss thee so much XD

  38. I have to go to Korea

  39. imnotuglyimexotic!
