another reluctant expat
i wanna go to the diner.
Me too. We could go to IHOP but it's not the same. At all. Still, bottomless cups of coffee are never a bad thing....
I'm going to die without one.
i do like the coffee...and the hazelnut creamer.
They never bring enough of it though. Also, Mike, this is the way forward -- we'll bring the diner to South Korea and become happy coffee drinking millionaires. Thousandaires? Hmm. Anyway, you'd be able to smoke in our diner.
Hopefully, Liz, what you'll do is find yourself jazzed about all the kimbap places, the chicken hofs, samgyupsal and galbi and god knows what-all versions of a "diner" you will find in the eating, chilling, drinking and conversing capital of the world! The typical Korean dinner out lasts two hours for the eating part. This is usually followed by second round ...Anyhoo, I went to Insa-dong this evening (for my first time), and there are coffee shops of every variety there. Including Dunkin' Donuts. Granted I haven't seen an IHOP, but why the hell come to Korea if you just want American? I confess I go to the Burger King in the E-Mart-uh once a week, but that's because there really is no Korean version of the cheeseburger. And I'm spoiled by the fact it's right across the street. If it wasn't there, I could cook my own, if I was that het up on it.Trust me, Mike, you're going to live! You're going to "Live, live live!" as Auntie Mame would say. "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!"
