I wanna play around at the park with iaaa’~ Before we try Daegu spicy food, let’s take Curut to her playground first. I get on the bus number 650 Just check on your NAVER MAPS okay.
You will see the info of the bus arrival time. It takes around 18 minutes to reach the place that Curut wants to see. The morning atmosphere is really nice Chill air even in cold weather After 5 minutes walking We’re finally here at the entrance~ It’s a place to chill and relax for Daegu citizen. The center of culture, arts, They have.. 133 kinds of trees and flowers~ It’s pretty good for healing, I mean it. You just have to explore this beautiful wide area. But, there’s one spot that makes me curious and I wanna see it with my own eyes. Meanwhile, Curut only wants to see the swimming fishes… And me? I wanna see that building. This one is called Duryu Bridge If we keep walking down this bridge, we will see the gate. There’s the building that I wanna see DURYU PARK
Found in 1965 The surrounding atmosphere is also very relaxing The main attraction here is Daegu Arts Center a.k.a DAC You will see this icon in front of the building. You can see so many art exhibitions here I won’t share all the pictures with you ok.. So you would feel impressed if you could visit it That’s just a bit from Daegu’s beauty. Now food time. The first Daegu spicy food starts with.. Jjim galbi If you find the gas station, you just gotta keep walking straight that way. It only takes 1 minute walk, though. Then, if you find this orange building.. Go to its across We’re going to the restaurant which was established at 1970s. But remember, before we come in.. We gotta take off our shoes. This resto has clean, fast, and friendly service, I mean it. They have 3 dishes and I choose Korean Beef. Bon appétit~ It… smells so so good Seriously. The first step is take the sauce and put it on the rice. It’s a must. Take one spoon, if it’s not enough… Dip it on the sauce again. The meat is so tender This place is so clean That’s why so many people come here And it also has delicious food! It’s a habit to eat raw garlic and the taste lingers on the mouth The spicy and sweet taste are.. burning my tongue Makes my tongue tingling I think I’ll just put the rice in the sauce.. Now stir it well So the taste will be blended, you know. “I think the spicy level is still acceptable, though” This kind of food was first discovered in Dongindong.
Then this area turned to be local food business area. It looks like rendang (Indonesian spicy red meat) The looks~ The display~ (Big Portion)
There are still so many leftover meat Feeling happy~ The last one I’m full
Let’s now~ Top up Curut~ I usually reload at Sevel.. Beside station, you can reload T-Money at 711. Just tell the cashier how much do you want to reload,
then pay for it. iaa~ what am I doing right there? I didn’t like Fall Season at first since it’s so cold. But I love it now I wanna keep it, so someday I can return to Daegu again. Now we’re off to the second destination Let’s get on the bus~ at the bus station hehehe Our bus is 403 7 minutes to go Fortunately there’s a bench for passenger to wait So I can see the cars are moving here and there until the bus arrives.. If you choose bus, You gotta tap your card on the machine near the driver. And you have pay attention to the LED The trip to next destination takes 25 minutes So I can enjoy what’s around me and what’s before my eyes without the cell phone interference Get off at Dusan-dong Community Service Center station This one is also cute Now we have to take a walk for 12 minutes Along the way to the second restaurant we will pass by Look at the couple The single one just only take the picture no need to walk there. I don’t know, it’s actually park and lake.. But they have the art touch. I bet you’ll enjoy spending time here. Let’s get distracted for a while ok.. So many couples go here, to do the picnic, there are also family who go here as well. Friends too.. But just a few.. There’s also playground for the kids. The most fun thing of these is that there’s one.. facility.. I’m not sure if we have to pay for it or not. But I wanna play it! It would be embarrassing though since I’m alone So what would a single person do here? Just sit back and enjoy the view of lovers and the natural view.. Suseong lake (so beautiful, isn’t it?) And the facility that I wanna try is Duck Boat. I really wanna try it pedaling the boat while waiting for the dawn. Isn’t it romantic? I’ll try it later then when I’m with my family or friends. I hope by keeping the leaf back then,
I would return here again.. After enjoying the Suseong Lake just cross the road toward GS25 beside the cafe.. And walk into that alley. It only takes 5 minutes walk from here. After I enjoyed the Suseong Lake Now it’s time to focus looking for the food (birds noise) Could it be the crows home? We’re almost there I hope it’s not crowded What a prayer! Oh my God! I didn’t expect I would get what I prayed for. The resto is not crowded when I arrive. Yeah, it’s not dinner time yet, though. The second spicy food is grilled food. Bon appétit~ It’s since 1991 Let’s start with Chadolbagi Duh. I’m not an expert (in grilling meat)
what am I supposed to do? It still looks tempting It went well at first, but then.. Scared to grill it again, but don’t wanna eat the rare meat. Then.. The help comes at the right time~ Paying attention to the proper way of grilling~ For chadolbagi, dip it on this sauce.. Aaah it’s burnt Their charcoal is from Oak tree It makes a better taste (Doesn’t use chemical seasoning)
They say it’s the spicy sauce It’s so popular in Daegu ia’… Don’t humiliate yourself~ Duh. I love their friendly service here And they’re still young! You get what I’m trying to say right? How about flirty eyes? Calm down. No flirty eyes. You just gotta turn it over until it’s golden brown It’s the message from someone who’s too often burns the food This one’s better Cause it’s not burnt~ For me it’s not not not spicy This city is known for Gopchang (pork intestine)
and Makchang (cow intestine) But I don’t know if it’s for you~ Now let’s grill the tteokbokki Let’s leave it that way so it will be crunchy For our courage~ Minimum order rules
1 person : 2 menus
2 persons : 3 menus What courage? The courage of challenging myself Pushing myself to step out from the comfort zone The outer part is crunchy, but so moist on the inside Chewy chewy chewy I miss tteokki! Now let’s get on the bus again. This time is number 401. For you who plan to choose bus transportation in Daegu,
but hesitate about it So, when the bus stops You just step inside.. Then you tap the card on the machine near the driver And have a seat.. You gotta tap one more time when you get off, but through the back door This trip is 33 minutes. 19 stops. Quite far huh.. Do you know,, I was kinda shocked I thought someone’s been following me behind Apparently.. The next resto is near the hotel Just 3 minutes walk That’s the hotel. The resto is behind it. Here it is. Let’s go inside~ It’s kinda late for me to have the dinner Fortunately it opens 24/7.. And so many celebrities came here. But if you try to find my autograph it will be useless. Of course! Hahaha For the menu.. This one is big portion
This one is small portion
This one is noodle and soup I choose the small portion It’s ttaro guk bap It means separated rice and soup Only in Daegu Spicy! There’s radish, but I don’t really like it
*I only like sliced radish When we.. had our independence day, one year later.. In another place It was created~ It’s now become the oldest one here in Daegu Why? Cause another places were.. already gone collapsed collapsed collapsed This one survives Awesome~ The struggle~ The consistency The hard work Since it’s.. separated, so we can’t mix it~ I don’t have the heart to do so~ The spicy taste is so good~ What is it? Blood clot? I can’t eat blood clot Let’s just eat the meat Ttarogukbap consists of: veggies, beef,
blood cloth (to make the aroma and taste better) The soup is champ! The soup is made of cow bone and chili I think I plan to see the street food in Daegu tomorrow.. The next day~ Let’s explore the street food in Daegu The first one is near the hotel 3 minutes walk It’s accross the EDIYA (Burger Kong), then walk a bit. It’s the side look It’s the look of the entrance. Near the hotel. This bread is originally from Daegu and it’s so popular It’s not too big and we can’t dine in From so many breads I wanna try this one Their best bread After we visited Samsong Bbangjip, just keep going straight From Starbucks, turn right. It’s on your left This one is.. Sweet Read Bean Bun It’s also popular and originally from Daegu too. Just like the previous one, I only want to try the best bread The plus from this place is that we can dine in on the second floor. It’s cozy and not too small I will taste the breads here. Why did I choose the seat near the window? Because I could enjoy the view. I had Mayakpang from the previous bakery and Danpatppang & hot chocolate from here. Let’s start with the Samsong one Mayakpang. Corn bread.
Created at 2009. Diameter 10 cm, weight 110 grams.
Got so many people addicted. Corn and maybe milk? (secret sauce) It’s not fried It’s baked with super low flame The outer part is not like flour. It’s easily cracked. Just like the heart. Actually they have it in Seoul too.. But, it’s originally from Daegu So, it’s a must try if you visit Daegu Now let’s try this one Danpatppang. The fillings are sweet red bean and green tea cream. The red bean is crunchy. The green tea cream is cold. Around 1960 – 1970s They ate these kind of food for breakfast. And it made them missing the taste Now there are so many people sell danpatppang. Wow~ I’m enjoying the view~ So cool~ I have a funny story of this video. I planned to try the best croquette near the Daegu station, so I gotta go there by MRT.. It’s the information that our train is coming soon. I was thinking about the croquette all the way It has so many branches in some countries. The trip is about 23 minutes. I took Exit 3 And the view was astonishing. And the weather was chill even though the sun was shining bright. I got distracted then I explored it while taking pictures of stuff that were considered unique by my flirty eyes. When I tried to find the croquette, I got lost a couple of times! It’s supposed to be around here. But I didn’t find it. I only found Birdie.. Aaah she’s gone. Let it be I finally decided to go by taxi to the market Maybe it’s just the time that I become “market girl” We’re heading to Seomun Market It’s the biggest market in Korea Not the biggest in Daegu, but in Korea Apparently, the Daegu market looks similar with the ones in Seoul. You can find flowers here, or you can buy hats and also socks. For the food, it’s also similar There’s tteokbokki, dumpling, Makchang, gopchang And noodles As always..my eyes can’t resist the odeng. Just looking at the smoke makes my mouth watering Especially when it’s added with soy sauce, spring onion, radish, and sesame. It’s from the fish and we can buy it to bring home. Look. Next.. I see the chicken with sauce and I can smell it from afar. Not spicy and spicy. Of course I choose the spicy one. Small portion is 3000 won. It consists of chicken, fish, and potato. I didn’t expect that fish will taste yummy this way~ I like it~~ It’s sweet, though.. Not too spicy for me But it’s yummy~ The chicken is moist. The fish too~ After having some food Now I’m gonna ask you to go to a place that’s in a must visit list if you have spare time. Since it takes about 2-3 hours to reach this place. Here it is. Apsan Park I come here cause I wanna see Daegu city from observatory But I’ll get on the cable car first. It’s so cold. And I’m so nervous that I’ll get on the cable car alone It’s fine, though. It’s going up, you know. It’s what happens if you never workout You can sit here It’s closed at 7 PM. The last cable car is at 6.30 PM. Now it’s 4.30 PM. So I gotta be hurry Confused deciding which way to go Duh it’s going up? Is it the right way? We have to go up! When we feel tired of going up, everything will look the same It’s the previous spot! Calm down It’s right. Beside this stone there’s a cable car ticket office I purchased a round trip ticket The cable car will come within 2 minutes Actually, to see the beauty of Daegu at Apsan park, there are some options, though. But hiking is not a good option unless you wanna work out hehehe Cable car is a better option for me and I’m not alone. I’m with the other 8 persons. When the cable car stops, just follow the way. Not too far, though. But it’s kinda steep. So better be careful. We’ll reach the destination after 30 minutes walk. A spot where we can see the beauty of Daegu city. There are love locks hihihi So many couples go here to capture the moment and upload it on SNS. I won’t do that. Beside cause I’m alone.. But I tend to do deep thinking if I see such a view hahaha. Then I decided to wait until the night comes. Even though the wind is really cold but it’s too bad if I go home right away. While waiting, I came to realize Actually, the good life is not when we can travel or do big things.. But it’s when our soul is free and unburdened by the perception and standard that everyone else determines for us. Duh. I can’t get down iaaa’~ Help me
