As Long As Your Mine

Yesterday I had the pleasure of seeing "Wicked" in Seoul with my good friend Nick. This isn't the first time I've seen it (okay- it's the third...), but it's been a couple years since the last time and I had a great time! It was the Australian cast and they were fantastic. I was especially impressed by Galinda/Glinda. She was so entertaining! There were a couple times I wanted to just run up on stage and sing with her. Don't worry, I suppressed the urge! 

After the show, we went to Itaewon (a neighborhood in Seoul) and had a delicious dinner at Tomatillo's! Somehow Itaewon manages to be simultaneously be one of my favorite places and my most hated places. It's a foreigner hot spot, in fact, you'll see more foreigners than you will see Korean people in that area. Whether they are ex-pats living abroad, military, teachers, or tourists- you will see WAY too many foreigners. It's just a bit crowded, overwhelming, and shady at times. The upside, and the reason I love it, is because they have SO many foreign restaurants there. I'm not the biggest fan of Korean food, so it's nice to be able to have a "taste of home." Nick and I decided upon Tomatillo's for dinner, which is a Chipotle-esque restaurant. It's pretty good and by far the best Mexican food I've had in Korea. 

Then for dessert, which neither of us needed after stuffing our faces at Tomatillo's, we walked down the street to Tartine's Bakery. Tartine's is incredible, but I prefer to call it "Tiny Pie" because they sell the CUTEST tiny pies! 

And what better to wash down a tiny pie than chocolate milk? 
Tartine's- you are SUPER delicious, but I am so glad I don't live near you or I'd probably have a tiny pie every day!
All in all, I'd say it was a lovely way to spend my last weekend in Korea: good entertainment, good conversation, and good food. Is there anything more you need out of life?
