The famous Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market in Seoul is in a difficult predicament; both the old and new markets are located just side by side and this has resulted in a portion of the vendors moving over to the new building while the rest continue operating at the old market.
In an attempt to modernise the fishery industry to promote tourism growth, the new Noryangjin market has been built to accommodate more stalls in a cleaner environment. While the intention is to increase business opportunities for the owners, many owners from the old Noryangjin Fish Market refused to move over and cited a smaller land area and increased rental fees as their main concerns.
If you are curious about the similarities and differences between the old and new Noryangjin markets, read our guide to find out more. READ ON
Nolboo is a popular Budae Jjigae chain in Seoul and you can get it at only W7,500 per pax.
Nothing fills up your tummy nicely like a bubbling pot of Budae Jjigae when you are feeling hungry. Also known as Army Stew, this Korean delicacy is a popular family dish as the huge portion allows for communal dining.
Nolboo is one of our favourite Budae Jjigae restaurants in Seoul as they have been consistently good throughout these years while keeping prices low.
Strolling around the Myeong-dong district in Seoul, South Korea, you will find that Korean Fried Chicken joints are aplenty. However, one spot that was highly recommended to us was Noo Na Hol Dak. They have several outlets in Seoul but we visited the one right in the heart of Myeong-dong.
Upon stepping in, we found out for ourselves just how popular they are with both locals and tourists alike. The restaurant is spacious, making it a great place for communal gatherings and casual hangs with friends or colleagues. Beer is the beverage of choice to complement fried chicken—but of course.
The menu was pretty simple, focusing on what they do best: Korean-style chicken. Since Noo Na Hol Dak is well-known for their oven-baked chicken, we opted for the basic Crispy Baked Boneless Chicken (W16,900) and pints of Cass beer to enjoy.

nex is the heartland mall in Serangoon and it is one huge mall at it!
Being the biggest mall in the North-Eastern region of Singapore, nex houses more than 70 fashion, recreation and food stores.
Shopping mall directories, however, can be more troublesome than helpful. Somehow you can never seem to find what you want, plus they are a bother to navigate. So to make things easier for you, we have done the dirty work by compiling a concise list of nex’s restaurants, cafés, food stalls and kiosks and categorising them in alphabetical order. This nex food directory should save your time and effort without needing to sieve through confusing websites.
It is no secret that Bali is home to some of the best cafes and restaurants. While we enjoyed visiting all the cafes that we have been to on our trip to Seminyak, one place that won all our hearts in an instant is NOOK, a gorgeous local eatery overlooking breathtaking views of the paddy fields.
What we love about NOOK is that the cafe is tucked away from the bustling Seminyak area, but still within walking distance to the main street. Escape from the crowd and enjoy some traditional Indonesian delights that do not lose out to those you will find in warungs. READ ON
