Mix & Malt is a Dining Pub in Seoul, Korea. It’s been a pleasure getting to know the owners, Wendell and Lois, in the last half year. They have amazing lasagna, steak, meatloaf, and so much more. They are consistently delivery rich and savory western fare in a location (Hye Hwa) most known for its abundance of musical theaters.
I’ve since shot their iPad menu and have many many dishes and drinks over many late nights.
This was one of my first attempts to tell a story about food, starting with something simple like a martini. I actually don’t like martinis, preferring single malt scotches or beer, but it had nice visuals that made for a simple shot. Ike is a phenomenal bartender who takes pride in his work. It’s always a pleasure to shoot a person like that.
Looking back, I would probably adjust the white balance and plan my sliding a little more.
But overall I’m pretty pleased with this first step.
