Seoul Stylights- Mad Hatters

16 Nov

Smitten by his style. Elegant, bold, & clean.

These lovely ladies work at Velvet, a fashion store in Hong Kong.

Che?

Perfect hat for 0°C, which is the current temperature in Seoul (also the reason I’m sitting under the covers while blogging).

While you might not see this look walking down the runway anytime soon, it was too cute to ignore.

Le Brunchie Restaurant – Garosu Gil

14 Nov

Do you have those friends that you’ve known for a relatively short period of time (let’s say, a cumulative 9 hours, give or take), but they immediately feel like family?  Well, that’s how I feel about J & O.

And for this exact reason, when J & O come to Seoul, I research restaurants EXTRA EXTRA hard to try and introduce them to some real gems.  (As you may have already realized, food and family are completely intertwined in my eyes.  And stomach.)

This time around, we found Le Brunchie – the perfect spot for an intimate & delicious brunch(ie).

Don’t believe me?  Check out the menu for yourself.  There are some awesome & elevated Western choices.

It took us about 30 minutes to order because we wanted to try everything, so eventually we pretty much ordered just that.

My favorites were the Bruschetta,

Yep, that is steak & egg between the bread and the greens.

the Salade Niçoise,

Perhaps it is due to my Israeli/San Franciscan roots, but I am ALWAYS on the hunt for a good salad, especially in Seoul where a satisfying and healthy salad is hard to come by. (Hi. Mayonnaise is not a dressing.)

…MMMM…

the French Toast,

and the Eggs Benedict, which, unfortunately, was not photographed before it was devoured. Oops!

We also had the Chicken Salad, which was fantastic but very small- a chiquitito piece of chicken atop of a tiny bed of greens.  A good option if you aren’t too hungry, but seriously, is that ever the case?  If so, I applaud you… now teach me your ways.

Overall, it was a delectable meal that lasted 3 hours (no joke) with fantastic new/old friends.  I’d highly recommend Le Brunchie, in fact, I loved it so much that I returned twice in one week!

Directions:

Le Brunchie has moved locations!  It is no longer marked by the X on the map below.  The new location – is close to the Spain Club (noted on the map).

FYI: This map was borrowed from the blog, Painting the Passports Brown & originally created by Seoul Selection, which publishes the BEST & most intricate Seoul guide books and magazines that I have yet to encounter.
