[eat] Super duper paninis at A to Z Cafe @ Sinchon, Seoul

I love paninis–the bf used to make the best paninis in the world for me with fine cheese and chicken breast ;~;. But come to think of it, before yesterday I only had panini outside home ONCE in all my time in Korea and was not immensely impressed. However, at A to Z Cafe, I was able to rediscover the beautiful flavor I fell in love with again and again. On the same road as extremely lovely places like Chloris Tea Garden or Chloris Salon de Thé, A to Z Cafe’s interior (AND exterior) are comparable in charm. The prices are very reasonable for great paninis and yummy drinks.

[eat] “Belgian” sandwiches at Big Bread @ Sinchon, Seoul

As I stalk Korean food blogs, I notice that the name Big Bread often comes up. It is a bistro that I have passed by numerous times but I always thought that it was something like Paris Baguette or Tous les Jours (Korean bakery chains trying to be European by coming up with a French name). I never noticed that it was a Belgian restaurant until I checked the website http://bigbread.co.kr. “Original Belgian Bistro”? Sounds fun to me. So today Austin and I went there for lunch. We opted for the lunch set (28500 for 2 sandwiches, Belgian fries, soup of the day, and coke).

I feel encouraged and motivated to eat out more often and to share my experience when I see traffic from all over the world.

The semester has been going on for 3 weeks and finally I have a chance to go back to Lord Sandwich — my favorite SW place in Seoul. I have been to LSW numerous times but I am always fascinated, captured, blown away by how delicious their SW are. As usual, I chose beef steak SW (14000 KRW) and indulged in the medium rare, tender like mother’s love, beef. The vegetarian friend opted for Mushroom SW (actually there were mushroom, zucchini, and eggplant). His SW was surprisingly good, insanely good, really. I wouldn’t mind being a herbivore if I got this kind of food everyday.

[eat] Real sandwich at Lord Sandwich @ Sinchon, Seoul

I am now living at Yonsei dorm at Sinchon campus. The food scene is quite vibrant and my school’s various canteens pretty much cater to all my needs. Still, that you live in an area of good cheap eats doesn’t mean that you don’t make foodie mistake. I still vividly remember buying a sandwich at my school’s GS25 and I’m sure that it was one of the biggest mistakes in my life. Fortunately, the superb Lord Sandwich nearby always provides me with all sorts of redemption.
