Flight Review: Eva Air Business Class 747-400 Manila to Taipei

View from the wing - Manila, Philippines.

On our recent trip across Asia, we were fortunate to experience business class flights due to our Aeroplan flight redemptions. Our flight was Manila to Hong Kong, but with a brief stopover in Taiwan on the way, so this was a short 2 hour flight between Manila and Taipei.

Hungry in Seoul: The Best Halal Korean Dosirak (Lunch Boxes) - BoA Travel House

Kimbap and Tteokbokki Dosirak

A few months ago in our Euro-Asian World Trip we headed to Seoul, South Korea in search for halal authentic Korean food. I watched tons of Youtubers eating Tteokbokki (a chewy spicy rice-noodle street food), kimbap (like a sandwich in sushi form), jajjangmyeon (black bean noodles traditionally with pork), and I desperately hoped we would find a few places which would offer these traditional dishes in a halal form.

Well, I'm happy to say our search was a HUGE success when we found out that BoA Travel House offered halal packed lunches (Dosirak) to go, with everything I was hoping to try! Woohoo! :D
