Carlo: Maybe Not Just Another Italian Restaurant?
Carlo: Maybe Not Just Another Italian Restaurant?

For weeks I’d been hearing about Carlo from my friends in Jisan-dong. They said I had to try it and I had to tell others about it. Located on a block down from Dong-a Department Store, Carlo is a new addition to the ever-changing restaurant scene in this area. I was skeptical since there are […]

The Suseong-gu district of Daegu is often referred to the local equivalent to Seoul’s Gangnam, due to its residents, good education environment, congregated office buildings and financial institutions.

Smack dab in the middle of the Samdeok district is Italy and Italy. A timeless Italian favorite among Daegu expats, that Koreans also rave about in their blogs. (From Sunju’s blog)

Papa John’s finally opens in Daegu
Papa John’s finally opens in Daegu

I’ve long considered Papa John’s to be the best non-Costco pizza in Korea (I’m not including the odd Italian place that puts out good pizza, like Wood and Brick or Sortino’s, but moreso referring to franchise pizza with multiple locations.). I just noticed that they opened recently (March 27, to be exact), across from the […]
