Hidden Gems – The Bar Scene  (Wine House)

With so many foreign teachers or expats living in Daegu, one may think every bar and restaurant in the city has been discovered, either through word of mouth or through individual exploration.

I just noticed that they opened recently (March 27, to be exact), across from the […]

Spring has sprung. Time for the patio at Tteulerae.

If you ask most young Daegu urbanites about a top 5 list for downtown restaurants that are hip and have good 분위기 (ambience), Tteulerae seems to always make its presence somewhere in the conversation. Located right across from 2.28 Memorial Park.
