I had already planned this day out earlier this week, where I would head to a nearby Bennigan’s for dinner and then have fun at Myeong-dong, where my sole purpose was to finally get a picture of this ice cream that’s famous there. And I did that plus more! I love it when my day turned out to be better than I originally anticipated. It turned out to be really great! And luckily, I managed to take some pictures to showcase my night.
Delicious Dinner at Bennigan’s
After I finished work, I headed to Bennigan’s at the Seoul Station Branch. I ordered what I always order when I am at Bennigan’s: their yummy Monte Cristo sandwich. Mmmmm. I’m not a big ham sandwich fan, but I’ll eat theirs, along with their delicious orangeade. Too bad their fries were salty as heck, though! Otherwise, it was a lovely dinner. I only wished I remembered to take pictures of the dinner. D’oh!
32 Centimetre Ice Cream Cone Anyone?
Over the years, I had kept on blogging about this ice cream cone place in Myeong-dong, a place where you could get a 32 centimetres ice cream cone for cheap, but I never could get a picture of it. Well, I finally did, and here are the images for you to all enjoy! This place is called “32 파르페” (32 Parfait), and it’s a must to come by here at least once if you’re in the area.
These cones are bloody cheap! The regular chocolate, vanilla, and chocolate-vanilla-mixed are all 1,000 won ($0.85). The other flavours such as green tea, mango, yoghurt, and etcetera all cost a bit more at 1,500 won ($1.25), but hey, it’s still freaking cheap! Anyway, I ended up getting yoghurt flavour, which is what I always get, and my friend, Roy, tried the mango one, which didn’t taste very good.
A Break at Patio and a Quick Mother’s Day Shopping Spree
Next stop happened to be a cafe, called Patio, I like to go whenever I’m in Myeong-dong. I like it because it’s a comfortable place, and well, I like how they give us free cake, haha! So there, I had iced royal milk tea, and my friend ordered green tea, which came in the cutest little teapot ever! I would have so taken the teapot if I could!
Oh yeah. I took a picture of that menu because of a typo. For those who haven’t noticed, apparently “mile” is now “milk”. XD It’s not really a funny typo, but it still stood out for me to go WTF. Then again, nothing beats the “cherry cock” (supposed to be “coke”) typo I saw in a cafe in Dongdaemun!
After a brief break, we then went shopping for our mothers. Yay for being in one of Seoul’s popular shopping area in the first place!
Never People-Watch in Front of a Hot Advertisement
When finished with shopping, we sat in front of Migliore’s (a department store) stage to do some people-watching. We did see some interesting people go by, but this huge picture distracted us because the dude was extremely droolworthy of our attention!
I am not a big Calvin Klein fan, but I must give them kudos in their selection of models. Definitely BIG kudos. :D
That’s it! That was my night! What a blast. :D
