Guise, we’ve been working on this for ages. And now, we’re almost ready to kick it off. Ladies and gentlemen, how would you feel about us FINALLY doing a North American tour?

This might be our only chance to do a US/Canada tour, so we want to make the most of it and hang out with as many of you as possible. But, we still haven’t decided where we’re gonna go yet. This is where we’d like your help. A US/Canada tour is really overwhelming, because there are so many cities to visit, and going to all of them would take us months. Which, we obviously can’t do. So we need your help to get a better understanding. Tell us where to go! What are the Nastiest cities? Where would we have the most fun?

Usually our tour destinations are picked out in advance, but then we feel bad for the places we’ve missed out on. We think that, this way, we can better get a feeling of what places we should visit. It’s up to you to decide!

The easiest way for us to figure this out is via our app. Download it for Android and iOS. Then, post a picture of your neighbourhood and hashtag it #seemycity. If you see other pictures of a city you think we should visit, comment on it, share it, give it all of the emotive ballistics you can! We can measure things a lot easier in the app than we can elsewhere, and we’ll be able to get a better feeling of where we should visit.

And your pictures will help give us motivation as well! We’ll be shooting videos of our trip and taking loads of pictures, like do whenever we travel somewhere, and we’d love to share some of the places that are home to you. If there’s a bubble tea shop you love, or a vegan restaurant you think we should visit, a cool arcade, a calm park, let us know! Share your neighbourhood with us. We’ve never really traveled around the US, and have not done that much traveling in Canada, either, so we could use your advice.

If you don’t have a phone with either Android or iOS, don’t worry! We’re just using the app to figure out where we should go, because it’s easier for us to see the numbers that way. But, if you have a different phone, then you can also use the hashtag #SeeMyCity on Twitter and Instagram, and we’ll do our best to count those as well. We’ll try our best! Make sure you mention us (@eatyourkimchi) or else we won’t be able to find it! Ahhh! And then, in 10 days we’ll be able to make up our minds on where to go, and then we’ll make tickets available on the website, right here, which you can access via any device!

We plan on doing the tour in July and August, before school starts, so hopefully we don’t get in the way of your schedules! May 1st is when we’ll go live with the tickets. That’s Martina’s birthday! There will be a limited number of tickets available per event, because smaller events – I think – have a better feel than bigger events. And we’re nervous in front of big crowds. EEP! We’ll be having lots of fun at these events as well. We’ll tell some stories, play some games, give away some goodies (and we’ve got some REALLY AMAZING goodies in store!) and just do our best to make memories with you all.

I hope you’re as excited about this as we are! WE’RE FINALLY GOING TO DO A US/CANADA TOUR! YUSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

  1. You can’t come to the US without visiting Eric Nam’s hometown – Atlanta. Fastest growing Asian population in the US and awesome Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese and Chinese food. Plus the rest of the town is pretty cool.

    • Yes!! We also have the biggest aquarium in the world, and we are also home to the World of Coke!!

  2. Please, Oh please, come to Portland! Our summers are so wonderful and we have tasty beerz!

    • yup, Portland would love to have you!

      4 years ago
    • YESYESYES~!
      Portland has super tasty beer selection, and you could go on the beer train which I think you two would love. Also Portland has super tasty food and Voodoo doughnuts! The people are super friendly and super weird like you like them. Plus its just down right beautiful here. All in all I think it would be a wonderful stop for you two. Everyone always seems to pass it up but why? Its amazing and you should come! We will welcome you with open arms~ ♥

  3. Seattle, please! I live about a 4 hour drive from there, but it’s an awesome place. I’m sure some of us Oregon/Idaho/Washington Nasties would appreciate it! ( Plus, I can’t even get any Asian food here, and I’m dying to have some! Seattle is THE BOMB for all the Asian you can think of! )

    4 years ago
    • As a Montana Nasty I’m rooting for Seattle, too. I’ll give advertising for my home a shot because I think it’s beautiful, but there just isn’t enough people here. Plus, I love Seattle and an excuse for a road trip! :)

      4 years ago
      • Woo! Yeah, I live out in the middle of nowhere, around the border of OR/WA. Not a lot of Nasties in my area. I’d be happy to pick up some Nasties on the way from where I am, though!

  4. Please come to Minnesota, Minneapolis, Saint Paul. We’re right under the border to Canada we’re practically family. Lol.. Jk. But really come down, and enjoy some real good Juicy Lucy burger, and some real good beer. It’s the right season to enjoy a walk around the big spoon, and to enjoy the hip Uptown where it’s at right now to be. Sadly I can’t post any pictures.

    4 years ago
    • YES! Come to Minneapolis – we are chill and have a great craft beer culture. (I’m going to get some pics real soon).

  5. I’m really hoping Chicago makes it on the list and here’s why:

    1 – The Food: I know you guys are huge foodies and love taking pictures of food as well. Chicago is home to an incredibly diverse blend of ethnic and fusion foods. There’s Portillo’s, home of the Chicago style hotdog and Italian beef sandwiches that all sprang from a single food cart, Giordano’s, which is the best deep dish pizza you’ll ever have, and Bob Chinn’s Crab House which is the #1 seafood restaurant in the Midwest. Bob Chinn’s draws people from all over the world just to eat there including many celebrities. They are known for having the absolute freshest and high quality seafood, especially their whole Alaskan King Crab. It also happens to be where I work ^_^; Here’s their website:

    2 – The Architecture: I know you both loved the amazing architecture you saw during your previous travels in Europe and Chicago is known for it’s numerous and varied buildings. Chicago was home to many famous architects and there are many buildings that have been extremely well preserved for over 100 years. Not to mention all of the once world-record-breaking buildings such as the Sears Tower (It’s truly a sight to behold when standing directly below it, or even better from the observation deck on the 103rd floor overlooking the city!). There are tons of hidden wonders scattered throughout the loop as well. I honestly think some of the interiors are absolutely gorgeous as well. I have a friend who works at the Chicago Architecture Foundation and would be thrilled to take you guys on a walking tour of all of the coolest spots. Believe me, the pictures don’t even come close compared to seeing these things in person.

    3 – The Fans: I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen both online and in person who are Nasties living in or near Chicago. I’ve constantly been surprised at how many people love you guys around here. Just think about all of the packages you’ve received from the Green Region. I think you’d definitely be able to fill a venue here and it would be a shame if you didn’t make it here this time around. Chicago is also very centrally located for all of the nasties in the middle of the States and easy to get to. There are at least 8 other states that are only a few hours drive away and it’s only 30 minutes away from O’Hare airport, which was at one point the largest airport in the country.

    4 – The Memories: I can guarantee you guys will love it here and won’t soon forget it if you do decide to make Chicago a part of the tour. There’s honestly too many things to see even if you stayed an entire week, but I’m sure we can zoom-in on which things you’d most enjoy. Of course, we can’t forget all of the great memories you’ll be making with us Nasties. Love you guys with all my heart and can’t wait to meet you in person one day. ^_^

  6. I would love for you to come to Vancouver, it’s a beautiful city with so many diverse neighbourhoods. There are amazing Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Japanese restaurants here. To name a few, Phnom Penh in Chinatown, Miku in downtown Vancouver, Long’s Noodle House on Main St. There are so many places to see and do in Vancouver, you would love it here!!

    4 years ago
    • You know, tempting me with Asian cuisine is effective. We live in Korea, but they can only make Korean food here, even though they’re closer to Vietnam and China and Thailand, you’d get better versions of that food in Vancouver than you would here! Hmm…

      4 years ago
      • Plus during the summer there are two major night markets in Richmond so if you want food, that is a great place for cheap eats. Just the lines for the spiral cut potato are always long, but well worth it.

  9. AUSTIN TEXAS! I can’t download your app because I have a lowly iPhone 4 but Austin is possibly one GREATEST places you could ever go! We have Lake Austin where you can kayak, paddle board, fish. We have Hamilton Pool which is SO beautiful, so many parks (kite park, graffiti park, etc.), we have Sixth Street (get ready to get schwasted), University of Texas at Austin, South by Southwest, Wanderlust and Austin City Limits which are all basically the Coachella of the south! And let us not forget the FOOD TRUCKS! SO. MANY. FOOD TRUCKS. Come to Texas. You will not regret it.

    • Don’t forget about UT! and Juan in a Million (amazing tex mex breakfast tacos) and then just the Tex mex in general is amazing!

      4 years ago
  10. Places I would suggest … San Francisco, CA – wild Culture and a huge Korean community (the Jung sisters and Tiffany are from there).
    Seattle or Portland.
    Las Vegas (you don’t have to gamble at all – lots (and lots and lots and lots) of good food and the scenery is amazing – the Grand Canyon isn’t very far either).
    New Orleans … yo the food and the music.
    Miami, FL … just because its Miami.
    NYC of course.

  11. Vancouver, BC! Stanley Park, Richmond Night Market, Grouse Grind, SFU hiking trails, UBC trails, Coal Harbour, Yummy Food trucks downtown :)

  15. Hello EYK I sadly don’t have a phone I can download your app on D: (I have a windows phone!) but you guys should come to Portland Oregon :D It has a amazing donut place called Voodoo Donuts and the donuts are sooooo good also in the summer there is a cool Saturday market which you can by local foods and hand crafted items. Also if you like books they have a new and used book store called Powells, it has so many books from Manga to dictionary’s. Anyways please think about it I would be so happy if you come! I love you guys!! <3

    • And again, can we please get Windows Phone support.
      There are fans around the world who can’t get easy & quick access to your content, due to our choice. Also, looks like Portland is really stepping up there, as I’ve seen a bunch of posts about Voodoo Donuts :D (P.S. Australia rules)

      4 years ago
  16. You guys should really visit Seattle/Portland. I’m not from there, but I visited last summer and it was really cool. You guys seem like you would appreciate that Pacific Northwest/Portlandia way of life.

  17. Ah if your guise come to Vancouver, then all my summer money is going to Hello Kitty super cute tour con, seeing the Korra voice actor at an anime con, and seeing EYK.

    • Philly Philly Philly! Yes! Reading Terminal Market, cheesesteaks, kandykakes and butterscotch krimpets! We have so much (food) to offer! The city is having a renaissance, it’s a great destination!

      4 years ago
      • Cheesesteaks, kandykakes, and krimpets are nothing! I think Little Baby’s Ice Cream (balsamic banana, earl grey sriracha, and pumpkin curry ice cream? probably not in korea), tons of vegan places (which you know are just really awesome like V Street), speakeasy style bars (The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co.), and good old throwback ice cream parlors (Franklin Foutain) OMG MY ICE CREAM AND DRINKING PROBLEM IS REVEALED! Seriously, I think the Eat Your Kimchi crew will have a hard time picking places to eat in Philadelphia.

  26. Columbus, Ohio! You’d love walking around the Short North which is a really artsy area of the city with tons of unique small shops. Come on a Gallery Hop night (http://shortnorth.org/arts-galleries/gallery-hop/) for some extra fun!

  28. First of all, here are some get well hugs and kisses to Spudgy (xoxo)!

    Fort Worth is one of the cities that you have to come to. I did use the app but I am cheating and posting here as well with more info. There are so many interesting and fun things to do that would provide great photo ops and videos as well. But most importantly you can get some real Fort Worth Nasty love from some of your biggest fans. (Simon, I blame you for having to type that sentence…I feel like I need a shower).

    Here’s your list:
    Head to the historic Fort Worth Stockyards

    Watch the cattle drive that takes place daily on Exchange Street

    Grab a drink at the White Elephant Saloon which had its beginnings in 1890. It has moved from its original location since the old west cowboys used to party it up there (and the sheriff and owner got into a gunfight in the street. It didn’t end well for the sheriff).

    Then make your way to Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky tonk, learn the Texas Two step of some line dancing, watch live bull riding, dance, play pool with some cowboys, and listen to a great concert featuring some of the best country western singers and bands around (and of course have some drinks!)

    Go a few miles up the road and visit Peters Brothers Hats to get a custom made cowboy hat. They have been around since 1921 and have made cowboy hats for 9 U.S. presidents.

    Have dinner at Joe T. Garcia’s. They have the best Tex-Mex food in the world! If the line is long to get in just wait, its worth it. Ask to be seated outside in their beautiful garden area and make sure you are sipping on a cold margarita while you take in the fresh air.

    Come see us! We would love to have you visit.

  30. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE COME HERE TO HOUSTON, TX!! My parents are super strict and won’t let me go anywhere unless it’s here in Houston (and even then, it’s pretty limited) but everything I think is interesting or sounds fun happens in either Dallas, Austin, or some other city four or more hours away.. Houston is a great city, I’ve lived here my whole life, and it would mean the world to me and your Houston fans if you came here!!

    4 years ago
  31. Come to Memphis, TN!! We’ve got Beale Street, Graceland, and world famous BBQ.

    4 years ago
  32. Yeah! I guessed right! Now to go vote like crazy in the app. How much will tickets cost? #studentloans #parttimejob #livingwithparents

    • We’re not sure yet, but we’re going to make them as cheap as we possibly can. We’re not in this to make a killing. We’re just hoping to cover venue costs :D

      4 years ago
  33. omg.. somewhere in florida. I would suggest Jacksonville, Orlando, St. Petersburg/Tampa. I know a place in Jacksonville that has an absolutely delicious japanese grill (korean owned). Orlando has a lot to do, and St. Petersburg has a lot of nice views. Especially southern st. petersburg.

  34. So I live far left green region but anyplace in the blue/yellow region would be closer for me. So I wonder if Kansas City will make it… Maybe Omaha? Wouldn’t that be great!

    4 years ago
    • Omaha! Then again, I kind of want to take a road trip so I’d be cool with Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Des Moines or Minneapolis… Here’s hoping they won’t totally forget about us central Nasties anyway.

  36. *Definitely Las Vegas*. Everyone thinks it’s just a big gaming and stripper abyss, which it respectively is, but once you cross the strip you see amazing small cafes and bistros with amazing food and a very hospitable town. I would definitely recommend going to Sunrise Coffee. It is hands down the best coffee in all of Vegas and very comfy. Very much the You Are Here Cafe of Las Vegas. Also, check out Taco y Taco. You probably miss good Mexican food. This is really cheap and delicious as hell. Run by two beautiful women with the sweetest personalities. For some good Indian food, Mint Indian Bistro. Authentic af and very comfortable. Lots of great bars and plenty of entertainment, It is quite the melting pot. On one road you can gamble your ass off and be as NASTY as you want to be and on the other is Container Park, with wonderful restaurants and artwork. You must go!!!

    • How did I forget Bangkok Orchid. The most mom and pop thai restaurant ever with the most authentic flavors in all of Vegas for incredibly cheap prices. Make sure you get the coconut ice cream in young coconut. It is the best ice cream you will ever have.

  37. This is how I would do it (if I had unlimited funds, so it may be a bit on the unrealistic side.)

    Chicago to Winnipeg
    Winnipeg to Vancouver
    Vancouver to Seattle
    Seattle to Portland
    Portland to Texas (Austin or Houston)
    Texas to New Orleans

    Route 2 (Hipster heavy)
    Montreal to Toronto
    Toronto to Ann Arbor, Michigan
    Ann Arbor to Chicago
    Chicago to Vancouver
    Vancouver to Seattle
    Seattle to Portland

  39. While I would love for you guys to visit my city of San Bernardino, I would actually rather you wouldn’t. There isn’t really anything here.

    But when you go to California, I HIGHLY recommend going to Six Flags and Disneyland. Well I don’t know it’s summer and no school… You know what? Go to amusement parks with caution. Expect some long lines if you are really up for it.

  40. Please come to New Jersey (Any New Jersey Nasties?!) We have lots of shopping and discounted outlet malls (no sales tax on clothes and other things), great food (lots of mom and pop shops, and we have SIX FLAGS, for roller coasters, water park (Hurrican Harbor), and a safari park! Also, there are lots of boardwalks and beaches, plus Asbury Park has great music scenes and a fantastic pub/bar called Asbury Bier Garten (beer garden) that is has European style seating and great food. More things to see at the Jersey Shore that the MTV show, TERRIBLE REPRESENTATION OF NJ!
