As previously explained, "yuk" refers to beef (see generally 1.145 Yuk Sashimi), while "hoe" means "raw."
Never been a fan.
The strange thing about this sandwich, which consists of pastrami, melted cheese of some sort, saurkraut, and mustard on wheat, is not that it's called "pastrami sandwich" but that there's another sandwich on the menu called a "reuben sandwich." The reuben is pretty much the same except it has roast beef. There's also a sandwich called "beef sandwich," which apparently features "steak." (No, there's no separate "steak sandwich.") And all of them are under the "panini" section.
I knew I wasn't going to like it, but I ordered it anyway for a couple reasons. The main, immediate reason was that I had been at the cafe for over 4 hours, getting some work done and drinking cup after endless cup of free coffee refills, and anticipated being there even longer, and, not wanting to be a mooch customer, I felt it only fair to order something more than just the cheapest thing on the menu. Located just a couple kilometers from my apartment, Puffin is my destination of choice whenever I have work to do but can't get it done at home (e.g., people are there and awake). It's an old-school cafe, the kind that was once the only place to get real coffee in Korea before the invasion of Starbucks. Back in the day, Puffin was a standout for its food, including American-style brunch items, like omelets and sandwiches, before such things had become chic, before Sex & The City. I've been going to Puffin for over ten years, and it used to be for the food. Used to be. A good mix of the customers used to comprise expats, too. But then, I don't know the when or wherefore, the food got crappy, in every sense: taste, portion, and authenticity. I now go there only for the coffee, which also isn't that great but the refills keep on coming. I guess the second reason I ordered the sandwich, even though I knew I wasn't going to like it and I could've walked across the street to Naked Burger or down a block to Duo Cose, two of my favorite local places (see ), was just to have a reason to write about Puffin here. It's the first time that I've eaten something for the sake of this project that I normally wouldn't.
Toayen is a neighborhood Chinese delivery joint. The food isn't very good, but it's the best in Oksu.
The udong from Toayen was terrible. Broth like water.
