a little bit of paris in seoul



Who would have known that there is a 'little bit of paris' in the heart of Seoul??? Also known as '서래마을' or the Seorae French village.  I recently enjoyed a decadent brunch with good friend Eunice Cho at this French Atelier.  The Green Table is a collaboration of 3 sisters that form a culinary dream team-style, pastry, and all things food!

You will see the demeanor of Paris as soon as you step foot into this space, and your immediately greeted with a warm smile. The main dining hall is on the first floor, and brunch is served daily on the second floor.  Daily brunch is definitely a hard find in Seoul, since it's usually offered on weekends elsewhere.

The interior is done quite well, displaying elements of Parisian vintage charm-true to fit the concept of their cuisine.  Definitely designed for ladies who thrive to find a cafe that 'just makes you want to spend your whole afternoon chatting away with friends'! At least this is what Eunice and I did :)

Eunice picked up this book on macaroons from her recent trip to France! One of the most thoughtful gifts ever...she knows my addiction...I mean passion for macaroons :)










Where did they find all these vintage dishes??? Absolutely jealous...if only this was my home...

Awesome photos. Seriously, this place should pay you or at least give you a free dinner 'cause your post will surely attract customers.
