Dak Galbi (닭갈비) was one of the first Korean foods I tried upon my arrival many moons ago, and even though it burned my face off (I wasn’t much for spicy food in those early days), I loved it so much I have acquired a spice tolerance almost solely to enjoy this dish. If I [...] moreSushi Mori
If you’re looking for AMAZING sushi, look no more. Right next door to New York Kitchen in Samsan-dong, a few blocks from Hyundai Department Store, there’s this gem of a place where you can get a truly authentic sushi experience. The dining area consists of a long counter with seating for fourteen. That’s the only [...] more베테랑 – Fusion BBQ at its best
I was introduced to this restaurant a while back, but I hesitated reviewing it for the site, as it’s already quite busy, and I didn’t want everyone rushing out to try it, making it impossible for me to get a seat. But I’ve decided to not be so selfish, and to let you all in [...] moreCheong Hae Wool
Ssambap is one of my favourite Korean meals: there’s nothing I love more than a table full of little side dishes — meat, fish, vegetables, soup — to accompany a bowl of fragrant rice. This restaurant (which unfortunately doesn’t have an English name) doesn’t look like it’s been in business for long but it surely [...] more
It’s that time of year again, where everyone in the world becomes Irish for a night, wearing green and drinking ’til they turn green.

April is a busy month for Angle Magazine. We’re about to publish our 5th issue and we will be following it with our first ever festival. We are fortunate to team up with I Like Many Records (an indie record label and brainchild of former Ulsan resident, Ali Safavi) and the great people at [b]racket [...] moreWhale Boat Races are a Go!
A week or two ago, T-Hope Korea was told that the annual Whale Boat Race (held in conjunction with the Whale Festival) would no longer have an amateur, foreigner friendly event. There was not much reason given beyond some apparent complaints of drunken dancing long after the event was over. This was quite a blow, [...] moreBaseball in Ulsan!
