Dublin: Yerim visits from Korea!

I first met Yerim two years ago when I went to Korea for the first time. 
She was the sister of my friend's friend and I ended up getting to know her quite well! 
Suddenly, I found out that she's actually on an Erasmus programme in Poland.
So I immediately asked her to come visit Dublin when she could so I could bring her around.

And bring her around I did!
The weather was fabulous on the first two days she was here so we had some burrito bowls from Mama's Revenge at the Pav.

Next we headed to the famous Howth to enjoy the breeze and sunny rays.

Since she hasn't had Korean food in awhile, we headed to Kimchi on Parnell Street for some kimchi jeongol with pork 김치 전골 , spicy chicken wings, and duck teriyaki.

Then we headed to Vicar Street to watch Foil, Arms and Hog live in action.
The lads were hilarious to watch in-person and they were really good at spontaneously improvising. 
Thank goodness we weren't in the front few tables as boy, did they get involved.

We made a friend, Suyeon 수연 along the way who was also travelling in Ireland and she joined us on one of the days. Unfortunately, the weather was pretty cruel on Saturday with its lashing rain. 
So, I brought them around Trinity, to see the Book of Kells, the Long Room, the Museum Building, the usual. 

And of course, we had to have some tasty food in our tummies - at Queen of Tarts.

Queen club sandwich filled with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. and sweet potato soup.

Mushroom and Gruyere cheese omelette

Coconut almond cake

Chocolate, almond, and pear, tart

Raspberry cheesecake

Irish coffee


Eating healthy has recently become a thing of the past. Hah. I'll get back to that soon...
