Subway Food in Seoul

The Seoul subway does not only house one of the best train systems in the world, but also delicious food! Our main transportation while we were in Seoul is the train. And yep, it also allowed me to take part in a great gastronomic ride!

This is my second post for my Korea Trip series, my first one is about street food. And yes, the subway food is as good as the street food!

Subway food can be found in stalls before you arrive at the train platform. I’m sorry if I get the location or the exact station wrong here. As a foreigner, it was hard to take note of the place. The subway was a labyrinth to me, you know. And Seoul has like... a lot of train lines! Haha! But I’ll try my best.

Pastries are always my weakness. One particular store I fell in love with is this one selling croquettes at Dongdaemun History and Culture Park station. My favorites are the sweet whipped cream filled and Italian croquette. The cheese was unforgettable for the latter.

The croquette stall in DDP station.
This whipped cream croquette is the champion!



I had the Italian Croquette at the right and it was filled with cheese and other meat. It was a savory treat.

These are simple but it reminds me of childhood! :D

Another pastry stall that I like is somewhere in Sindang station, where I’ve tasted the best coffee bun ever! Sadly, I forgot to take a solo photo of it. But it’s among the pictures below.

 That coffee bun at the top is awesome! 

More cakes and rolls!

And colorful macarons on display

Subway eats also have the traditional Korean street food on sticks, like Odeng (Fish Cake). Below is from Jamsil station, where we stopped by before going to Lotte Tower.

A selection with Odeng.

Odeng FTW!
More choices of food on sticks!


Manjoo! Who here likes manjoo? A custard filled pastry that's filled with happiness! Manjoo Cafe is also in Jamsil station. They were selling waffles and coffee, as well. But time constraints made me try only manjoo. 😋

Bring me back to Manjoo Cafe! :D
Fresh and hot manjoo is the best!


You know it's good if there's more custard filling. Yum!

The subway is full of people every time. No wonder it gives a lot of choices when it comes to food, as well. These few I’ve tried in my visit there only proves that there a lot more subway eats Korea can offer. Next time, I think I’ll try going on a train joyride, stopping at every station just for the food. 🤔😃😋

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
