Dinner@Plan B

Dinner a little too heavy for two.

Carbonara: sliced ham, mushrooms and a whole lot of creaminess going on again, burps! Quite nice to eat but arteries may be clogged, guys! Rm20ish.

The mushroom soup (rm10) was truly creamy as crack. You could munch bits and pieces of spliced mushrooms. We could not finish it. Definitely a main meal tho’ it is meant as an appetizer.

Duck confit ciabatta: thumbs up! My second time having this. Crunchy duck meat, topped with chopped walnuts and Sundried tomatoes. Healthy to the max. Could only finish half. The other half became my lunch the next day. The chips are better off finished upon serving itself, because the next day they turned treacle-like. Hard as hell. The only thing that is slightly peculiar, is the salad dressing. Too spicy for my liking. Simple olive oil with herbs would have been good enough. Rm23.

The ultimate calorie killer was the macadamia brownie, rm11. Came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzled with hersheys choc syrup as a finishing. Quite good i must say, the brownie was so soft and chocolatey. Not sweet so as to blend in with the sweet vanilla ice cream and choc syrup.

And now… To let go my fly. Tummy bursting out!

Eric Kayser Artisan Boulangerie@EK Plaza, Seoul

Stumbled upon this petite, yet posh looking bakery situated along the underground walkway between one MRT stop to the other. There were only 2 to 3 tables placed inside the bakery. Patrons were mainly females. Like a ‘desperate housewives’ pit stop for gossips before going back to their hubbies/ boyfriends. We had to wait for quite while for a table because these chatty ladies just wouldn’t stop their sizzling hot gossipy chats. 

The pastries looked delicious. Actually, more beautiful than delicious. The waitress by the counter told me that Eric Kayser’s signature pastry was the chocolate eclairs. One eclair cost nearly RM 5!

Within two gulps, these smooth, soft, creamy eclairs disappeared. Very good eclairs I must say. Deliciouso!

Total damage. Coffee cost 2000 won..nearly RM 8! Coffee, on the other hand was nothing to shout about. Without conversion, and if I was earning Korean won, I would say cost of food here is considered cheap. Heck, for a cuppa coffee and eclairs in a nice cafe in KL, would cost me nearly RM 20! And local Koreans would only need to pay 4300 won.
