Where is there Teppanyaki in Seoul?

JW Marriott, near Express Bus Terminal, has been giving a teppanyaki makeover to its Japanese restaurant Mikado. For the month of May, guest chef Cyrus Mann A. Platon, a teppanyaki master from Benihana at Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa in Australia, will be cooking his menu. And we all know that at Benihana cooking also means performing. I was thrilled to be invited to try out the menu. The Experience course is W120,000,...

Behind-the-scenes with Anthony Bourdain, What Is It Like?

“Who’s that old geezer?” Oh, Christ, not now. We were shooting the final shot with Anthony Bourdain before he returned to the hotel and jumped on a flight back to New York.

Video: Spiders and Country Bulgogi

Namyangju, east of Seoul. Picked some strawberries, visited a spider museum, had some amazing bulgogi and not-so-amazing sweet potato spoon pizza. This package took egregiously long to film–around 15 hours. I was a bit miffed. I liked the country restaurant. Took a nap while the DP was taking his sweet time. » Inline Ad Purchase:  Banner...
