Bull & Barrel, a western-style pub in Itaewon that recently made 10 Magazine’s list of the top 7 places to celebrate St Patrick’s day in Seoul, recently had me out to work with them on their new menu and promotional photography. Being a food photographer has its perks. Not the least of which is being able to taste the food at Bull & Barrel after the shoot!
Working with Chad and Steve was a blast. We started early to get as much done as possible before the bar opened for business. Quesadillas, humus, kimchi fries, curry, burgers, and pizza. We shot a good selection of the foods on the menu, and sat down to taste them afterwards.
Impressed does not begin to explain my reaction to the food. At a pub, you generally expect a scratched together menu of grease and salt to make you buy more beer. This is far from the case at Bull & Barrel. They have worked hard to make all the food the best it can be. The humus is home made and plentiful. The kimchi fries are a good mix of spice and cheese, while the curries are restaurant quality.
You’re going in here for dinner, not for a snack and beers. The food is great, and the drinks are up there as well. A couple of Craftworks beers, and a selection of imports crowd around the lonely Max tap that pours its cheap pints to hangover hungry folks. Do yourself a favour and enjoy a pint of something nice to go with the food!
I feel like I’m writing a review here, which is far from what this blog does, but I do recommend getting in and trying the food at B&B if you haven’t yet!
Enjoy the photos!
