Sorry for the lack of updates! Work has been keeping me busy and I’ve been pretty tired lately. Those two factors make me not want to really explore new places, and instead I find myself returning to places I like to try new dishes there. I’ve compiled below my recent eats, so enjoy the photos and their descriptions :)
I ordered this basil pesto ciabatta sandwich at Greenstreet in Dragon Hill Lodge, and it was all right. I can’t say I was too keen on it. This had grilled, marinated mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, and bell peppers. I was hoping it would taste really good, but it wasn’t as I’d expected it to be. The sandwich really lacked flavour!
Unlike the sandwich above, I actually liked this tofu taco salad at Oasis in Dragon Hill Lodge a lot better! I liked the combination of the tofu and the avocado. Plus the crunch of the tortilla shell also added to the texture of the salad.
My next visit to Greenstreet had me trying their grilled squash salad. Like the tofu taco salad, this salad turned out better than the aforementioned sandwich. I liked the grilled kabocha in the salad, but I didn’t feel like there was enough kabocha!
I tried the pad thai at Pho for You, and it was okay. This had beef, which isn’t something I’m too fond of. The flavour was decent, but I think I’ll stick to their pho, which are infinitely better than the pad thai!
These chicken sliders from Cali Kitchen are super good! I had them at their New Year’s Eve event, and I was so happy when I found out that Chuck decided to make them again! I really love the spicy kick to the chicken, and these are something I can eat every day if that were an option. I hope to see these on their regular menu in the future!
I had this grapefruit ade at Cafe Comma in Sangsu Station area. This ade was good, and I really liked the sprig of rosemary for garnish. This gave it a nice a scent and visual to the ade.
I returned to Mesiya, and I had their croquette set. The croquette came in three flavours: regular, curry, and crab cake. Everything else, like the salad, rice, miso soup, and the side dishes, tasted fantastic as always. It is always a pleasure to come here for a meal!
Cali Kitchen offered this North Carolina-style pulled pork sandwich and coleslaw, and I devoured that sucker up. The pork was moist and flavourful, and I actually liked the vinegary and spicy sauce. The coleslaw was also delicious. I’m not a big pulled pork fan, but I sure liked this one!
I returned to Plant, the best vegan cafe in Seoul, and I tried their chipotle chickpea-kabocha salad. This salad turned out to be way better than the previous kabocha salad I had! I really liked the chipotle flavouring on the chickpeas, and everything in the salad was a good mix!
My second re-visit to Plant had me trying their Western African peanut stew. This tasted all right! I really liked how the salad and the rice paired with the stew. However, this meal didn’t make me go, “Wow!” Something else below did.
Several years ago, I’d seen the Paul’s Meringue Factory at Takeout Drawing in Gyeongridan, but I hadn’t been able to try it until recently. This is a meringue on of a latte, and it’s truly an unique drink. Couple of people have asked me how to eat and drink it. I just simply ate the meringue first (which wasn’t easy, actually) and then drank my coffee. I’m glad I tried this once, but once is enough for me!
Third time’s a charm! This is what I tried at Plant on my third re-visit, and oh my goodness. This is an amazing burrito bowl! I love Cali Kitchen’s burrito bowl, but this bowl is outrageously good! I really like the incorporation of kale in this bowl, and their homemade chips was excellent. By far, this is my favourite meal at Plant!
I’m a big fan of Earl Grey cakes and pastries, so when I saw this Earl Grey cake at Plant, I decided to give it a go! It was good for a vegan cake, and I love the frosting, but I felt that the Earl Grey flavour was rather weak. That aside, I still liked the cake!
Lastly, I attended a farewell party at JR Southern-style BBQ restaurant, and I opted to get their cheeseburger, fries, and coleslaw because they had no brisket. The burger was okay, but that coleslaw is one of the worst thing I’ve eaten in a long time. I could not finish the coleslaw, and I wasn’t the only one who thought that about the coleslaw.
