Why Itaewon is special ?

Itaewon is known as the place to go when you want to get your foreign food fix. Restaurants featuring cuisine from all over the world can be found here including Indian, Thai, Pakistani, Greek, German, French, Italian, Australian, English, American, and Mexican, cuisines which are not easily found in Korea. There are also Korean, Chinese and Japanese restaurants in Itaewon famous for their traditional fare.

Le Saint-Ex, named after Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of “Le Petit Prince,” is a restaurant that is situated at the end of one of the alleys behind the Hamilton Hotel. Since its opening in 2002 it has become renowned for its French home cooking and its special dessert table that offers a wide assortment of treats.

Also located in one of the alleys behind the Hamilton Hotel is Santorini, Korea’s only Greek restaurant. Santorini is manned by an actual Greek chef who personally prepares every meal. Although it is not a very big restaurant (only about 10 tables altogether), its charming blue décor makes it a real Mediterranean gem.

From the first moment of the day when I received the parental consent form of the trip to Itaewon, located in Seoul, I was extremely excited. I felt happy that I actually got a fantastic opportunity to learn new things about other cultures in the world. Since I already knew briefly about the place, I expected myself to eat foreign food like Mexican, or Turkish, etc... And in the reality, me and the other 5 grade 10 boys had an awesome scavenger hunt there in Itaewon, after the arrival and some brief explanations by the teachers. Together, we saw many things, and met many foreigners while we walked around. We saw lots of foreign food, clothes, masks, signs that were written in foreign languages, and people who were not talking in English. Me and the other boys had a very pleasant meal in a Turkish Restaurant Pasha. I had chicken chops and Turkish drink tamek, Tamek was an attractive drink, Maybe I can have it next time, if there's some time for me in the future, There, I was fascinated by a unique Turkish sauce and the taste of it. And also, I felt delighted that the workers in Pasha were very kind to us. We asked some questions in the scavenger hunt, and every time, the men offered the answer with so much kindness. For that, we appreciated them. I still remember their smiling faces, and their words that they didn't get any discriminations while living in Korea, and that Koreans like kebab a lot. I personally hope for more experiences which I might have next time, Any way, I felt happy this time, since my school CMIS provided this valuable chance to all of the seniors of the school.
