I used to live in this hotel residence near Gangnam station (yes, it was awesome). There was so
much convenience to this place. A bus to every location was available as soon as I stepped out of
my building. There was a gym in my building. Just an elevator ride was my obstacle to every snack I
wanted at any hour from the convenience store. Also every taxi driver in Seoul knows how to get to
These things all made my life easier. But I have to say, the best thing about my old apartment was, I

‘pizza.’ Needless to say, we would irrationally sprint over there before they closed, because, pizza.
They are big slices, but for just cheese pizza that’s not worth it. I got into the habit of switching over
to buying their full pizzas for 20,000 won. I’ve seen parties of 3 grown men who can’t even finish it.
If you come here with one friend, with two, or more. Buy a full pizza. You’ll sit there for hours, talking
and drinking beer, trying to finish that massive dish. No one will leave hungry. I dare you, try and
