Bina (Seoul, Korea)- Enjoying our ‘Last KU Supper’ at an Indian Restaurant in Seoul

I hate saying goodbye. I always want to cry when I have to separate from people whom I
love and cherish dearly, but I know that’s a part of life. My
Korea University International Summer Exchange Program had just come to an end
and I have a lot of mixed feelings. I feel completely and utterly blessed for
having met the people I did in the program and it was by a crazy coincidence
that we all came together and became friends. I never expected my group of
friends to be as tight as we were and now having spent a fulfilling and
unforgettable six weeks together, I feel incredible sadness over the fact that
we all have to say goodbye. Because we are all from different parts of the
world (we were a very diverse group of people- from Sweden, USA, UK,
Netherlands, Japan, Canada (me), Hong Kong, China, to Singapore..etc), we know
it will be impossible for all of us to ever be in the same place at the same
time again. Thus, it makes it even more sad that this could be the last time I
ever see some of my friends (*crossing fingers that it won’t happen!*.

I just want to say to all my KU friends, I am so incredibly
grateful for having met you during the ISC program and I will never forget the
wonderful memories we shared together. We came together so randomly but somehow
it all clicked and we were instantly bonded like glue. I couldn’t have imagined
a better experience in ISC and I cherish all of our wonderful quirky and weird
moments together. 😛 (CJ! What’s the clock? What the heck?! Aboout. US has 50
STATES!! Hanging out like hobos in front of GS25) Please don’t forget me and
find me if you are ever in Vancouver or maybe even in Hong Kong! If I ever
travel to any of your countries in the future, you will be sure to get a
facebook message or call from me 😀
 
So now back on to topic: food. 😛 On one of our last days of
the program, we decided to try out this Indian restaurant near our campus
called Bina. The owners are Indian so it is a very authentic Indian restaurant.



We ordered a few appetizers to start us off. These are Samosas and they are essentially fried
triangle pastries filled with potatoes. The green sauce in the back is sort of
like a mint sauce and it goes super well with the Samosas!
 
Here are some Pakoras
and Tandoori Chicken. These were
both very delicious and I was particularly impressed by the chicken. It was
very tender and flavourful!
 
Whenever I go to an
Indian restaurant, I ALWAYS must order naan bread. If they have
garlic naan bread, even better. Luckily
they serve garlic naan here so we ordered a few baskets of these 😛 On the left
is a
Prawn Curry and it was my
favourite entree dish of the night. The prawns were extremely plump and tender
while the sauce was creamy and not overly spicy. My type of curry 😀
 
Here is some regular naan and Beef Curry. Both were
delicious as well.
 
Here is a wide angle view of our ginormous Indian meal that
night. I would’ve never thought I could get authentic, delicious, Indian
cuisine in the heart of Seoul but it is possible!Thanks Peter for recommending this place
!
 
Thanks to good company and even greater conversation, we had
a fantastic last dinner at Korea University and I will miss you all!
 
(And for the many people missing in the restaurant picture above, you
are not forgotten! :D) 
 
Happy Eating!
