WHEN TWO WORLDS COMBINE KKKKKBBBBBBFFFFWWWWW!
(That was the sound of an explosion, by the way).
So, we’ve been stalking Alien’s Day Out forever. And by we, I mean Martina. She’s been stalking that blog forever. But that means, in the grand scheme of things, that I’ve been stalking it as well, because Martina tells me all about it all the time. I know all about the foods and the bunny.
Also, we’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately. We went on our big diet a while ago and cut out carbs and lost a boatload of weight from it. Now, we’ve been reintroducing carbs into our diet, but we’ve been trying to eat healthier stuff instead. Trying lower carb options, vegan options at times, and exercising a whole lot more.
We were really excited when we heard that Alien’s Day Out was opening up a restaurant. There’s something really amazing, for us, in seeing online people take things offline. We have another friend, Dan Grey, who runs Seoul Eats, and he opened up a pub a short while ago, and we were just so happy for him. I don’t know what it is. We know a few bloggers in Korea that have expanded outside of just blogging, and it inspires us a lot. Hopefully, one day we can do something like this as well.
Anyhow, the point of all of this backstory is this: we were both driven by our desire to eat better, along with our respect for Alien Day Out’s success, and mashed that together with us being awake at a reasonable hour, so that all the planets aligned and we were finally able to make a video of this awesome place.
We went there before once just to test it out. Vegan food can sometimes be gross. Sure, it’s nutritionally delicious, but sometimes it’s just not palatable. We wanted to taste the food first before we recommended it, so we went a few days beforehand. It was lovely! We even met some awesome Nasties there as well, so it was an overall really lovely experience.
We came again on a Wednesday afternoon, in time for lunch and dessert. Though we ate more dessert than lunch. Did I say we were trying to eat healthier? Trying, ok? Trying! Trying! Stop judging meeeeeee!
No, but for really reals. This place is lovely. The food is lovely, the people we met there are warm and friendly. The thin mints are freaking delectable. It’s a bit confusing to get to if you don’t know the Itaewon area very well, but we made a video here to show you how to get there. BOOYA!
You can check out the Google Map of how to get there here:
And here’s the address in Korean just in case you want to hop in a taxi and just go there: 서울시 용산구 이태원동 63-15
Oh! And we’ve got a few bloopers as well. Check em out!
