Meet Your Kimchi Tour Picture Megapost!

Hi everyone!

Over the past two days, we’ve been sharing videos from our tour, but I think now it’s time for us to share all of our pictures. And we have lots of them! Some cities we have more pictures for than others, and that’s mostly because we spent more time in those cities. Some we’d stay in for a week and others we’d stay in for only three days, so our apologies if your favourite city isn’t equally represented. I hope you like the pictures nonetheless! We had lots of fun taking them, and have lots of stories that didn’t make it on video. Check em out!

Vancouver

We did a lot in Vancouver that we didn’t show in our video, since those videos were more food focused, but we’re gonna look over the footage to see if it’s ok enough to make into something bigger. Vancouver was a blast! We went out to Horseshoe Bay and rented a speedboat and rode on some really choppy waves. And we saw seals! And we also went go-carting in this insanely fast place. It was a blast. Here are some of the pics we saved!

You’ll also see lots of pictures with Ryan, who was a blessing. He’s a good friend of ours that we met back in Korea ages ago, and now he’s in Vancouver, and he showed us around and took us to so many great places, even though we were broken and jetlagged. Thanks Ryan. You gave us some awesome memories in BC!

Seattle

Seattle was lovely! That’s where we got our second Kia Sorento, and where our friend Brian met up with us so he could help with the driving, since Leigh and Soo Zee didn’t drive. We had some great food at Bourbon and Bones, and we just loved how pretty the marketplace was. There were so many options for interesting things to eat! I thought it was just going to be a market with produce and meats, but it had so much more. And we saw the throwing of the fish as well. Just didn’t get a picture of it.

Big thank you also to Three Twins Ice Cream, who came to our Meet Your Kimchi event and gave free ice cream to all who attended. We met Turner in Korea ages ago, and now he works with Three Twins, so when we heard that they wanted to take part in the event we were thrilled! We also ate a bit too much ice cream that day :D

Portland and Grant’s Pass

This was literally just half a day’s worth of pictures, but we really liked the food trucks in Portland, because it was such a bright day and everything was so colourful and just felt right to take pictures of. Grant’s Pass we only spent the night in, but it definitely seemed like a place I’d like to live. The houses are huge! And the prices are supposedly really cheap! And the bar served much better food than we expected. Overall it was awesome!

San Francisco

Oh gosh it was so picturesque here. All of the graffiti was so inviting. We took tons of pictures of it all but can’t post an endless stream of it. That’d be weird. But the food was great, the architecture was gorgeous, and we have really fond memories of hanging out in the backyard. Just a lovely, lovely place. If only the hills didn’t kill us!

Los Angeles

So, most of the pictures here are of our place, which literally was the nicest place I’ve ever stayed in. You could see the entire city from up here. We also hung out with some of our YouTube friends, which was awesome for us, because we don’t have many friends that do YouTube for a living, so getting the chance to talk to others is always refreshing. And also, sunsets.

This was also where we parted ways with Brian. Since we were flying from here on out, he didn’t have to drive long distances with us anymore. It was really sad. Brian’s a great friend, and having him along with us was really special. Thanks Brian for being so awesome :D

Houston

Two of our favourite places were here in Houston. That Alabama Ice House is something I need desperately in my life. It had the perfect atmosphere. Everyone was so nice, and the vibe was so relaxed. You could play basketball and have a beer. Everything so casual. I can’t imagine anything better. And the 59 Diner had such a great vibe, and the food was glorious and the decor was so awesome. We loved it here. The waiter was probably one of the best waiters we ever met as well.

Also, very big thank you to Leigh’s father. We stayed at his place instead of an Airbnb. He was ultra hospitable, and cooked us – no joke – the best steak we’ve ever had. It was perfect. Holy smokes. I have no idea how Leigh could leave home if her dad makes steaks like that. DAMN! Thank you, Mr Cooper, for your lovely hospitality :D

Atlanta

Sorry that we don’t have many pictures here. We just ate and did our event. We were here for a really short time, so we tried to eat at as many places as we could, but we didn’t have enough time. Sorry Atlanta. Hopefully next time we can check out more of the places you suggested!

New York

We’ve got a camera that’s pretty good in low light situations, so we took that out a lot in New York because it had the perfect glow for pictures at night. I took lots of pictures of Martina at this time because I think she looked her best in New York. Sorry for the infatuated husband overdose!

We spent some time with Jackie as well, who is Martina’s friend from childhood. Well, Martina went out with Jackie for a night. I went out alone and ate everything I could get my hands on, which you’ll see in the pictures here. And some of you might know what happened at the end of the night. Well, these pictures are from that night!

Chicago

Like Atlanta, we only had a few days here, but we really liked it here. The city design was great. The architecture was stunning. The food (not just talking about the pizza), was delicious. The vibe overall was great. We’d love to see you again, Chicago! Here are the few pictures we have of you that we’ll cherish.

Here in Chicago we also spent some time with a good friend of ours, Izzy, who was one of our first friends EVER in Korea. She actually lives in LA, and she came to help out at our LA event, and then she flew out to Chicago to help out with that event as well. It was great seeing her. Great seeing a lot of our friends who we’ve parted ways with in Korea. We don’t have any pictures of her here, though, sadly, but, still. Thank you Izzy for being so great.

So that’s it! Congratulations on getting through all of our photos! We had tons to share. These go up on our TV now as our screensaver, so we can keep on remembering the trips we’ve been on. We definitely traveled the most we’ve ever traveled this year, and our time in the US has definitely offered us the most memories. Thanks for sharing them with us!

  1. Hnnnng you went to Veselka!!!! I was in NYC 2 years ago visiting a friend and we went there. I think about it often. No good places to get pierogies in southern California, I think. I’m sad that I didn’t go to the meetups this year, but there will be other times. I’m glad you guys had fun. The US is pretty neat. We have some neat stuff and some tasty food :)

  2. “I liked talking to you! I liked the cute cupcake stamp. It was fun. I had a nice time seeing you. And most of all, I will probably see you again. Have fun!” – Caim (the little girl who is in the Atlanta pictures)

    It was super cool seeing Caim in the Atlanta pics. When I bought the tickets, I kept it a secret so Caim did not know that see was there to see you, she thought that see was on an Atlanta vacation. She did not realize what she was at until she was standing in line for the event and started to see a bunch of EYK gear and she was like “wait a minute”.

    You guys are super awesome, I know you had to be exhausted meeting everyone. It’s so funny. It all started because I love kimchi and was looking up how to make it on youtube. I end up making a big batch of kimchi and getting totally hooked on EYK, then kpop, then kdrama.

  4. I watched Vancouver pics and read the comments on every one and then in the Seattle set I realised the pics had 2 comments! So I came back to Vancouver just to read it all. Thanks for sharing, the only thing I want to do now is to travel and to ask you, when you put a number on the pic it’s just because you didn’t know what to write? Jeje

  6. Ah Simon, excellent job in NYC! PDT and Veselka, you can’t ask for better. I agree with you re: the Momofuku ramen, too strong a flavor and, for me, the broth was too…not fatty, but really rich and sticky, like there was too much gelatin or something. Kinda weird – NY has much better ramen than that, though. I am envious of your guys’ Chicago choices – you’re going to places I haven’t heard of yet (just moved here!) The pineapple cocktail was from Broken Shaker, right? Where’s the poutine from??

    • Sorry, I forgot to answer the rest of the questions: I don’t actually remember where the pineapple cocktail was from, but I’m pretty sure it WASN’T Broken Shaker, because I remember being told to go there and wanting to go there but not going there. I think. And the Poutine was from a place I think is called “Bite.” I think.

    • I got really lucky at PDT. I just walked in on a Tuesday. Boom! I tried going again with everyone else on other days but it was always full with a two hour wait list. CRAZY!

  10. Posts like this inspire me to travel more. The world is such a big place and it’s just a waste to not be enjoyed by everyone!

    • It makes me really happy to hear that! One of our biggest goals is to inspire people to travel. It’s so important, I think!

  11. Looking through all the pics I just noticed the EYK cars. How did you guys get them here??

  12. These are all so great! I love getting to see some of the behind-the-scenes stuff. And my favorite photos of you two are the ones from NY and Chicago–you just both look so relaxed and happy!

    • Oh! I’m glad that you’re here now! When is your flight to Korea? Just wondering. We have to fly out for a bit and I hope we can see you while you’re here.

      3 years ago
      • Yay! How should I contact you when I arrive in Korea? If you guys are only free on a certain day/time I wouldn’t want to schedule a conflicting event/activity for that day!

      • Hiiii! I’ve been on the website for a while but kept forgetting my password! LOL.

        I arrive in Seoul on October 30th and leave on the 4th!! (halloween partyingggg!). I’ll be staying in a wonderful little airbnb in Hongdae so I’ll be close by. : DD I’d love to see you guys again!

  14. Awww! So many cute photos guys! Everywhere you looked seemed gorgeous! I wish you had gotten to spend more time in Atlanta (I was there!) and I hope you get to come back to eat more of the fatty, warm, carb/protein-filled, nutritionally-lacking, lovely southern food!

    • Hahahaha! We’re working really hard now to try to get rid of the after-effects of eating that much food. But, oh lordy, it was so great!
