Seoul, South Korea: Lunch at Lee Jong Suk's 89M Mansion Cafe

We woke up early that day because we waited for Lee Min Ho on na -11 winter morning. Hahaha! We won't wake up that early and wait in the biting cold just for anyone so he should feel touched by our gesture. LOLZ. Anyway, our itinerary for that day was in Gangnam so we decided to eat here in Lee Jong Suk's cafe for lunch and at Lee Donghae's cafe for dinner. HAHAHA! Didn't realize it that time but it was an oppa day for us. :)) Because soon after eating our lunch, we headed straight to COEX Artium where SM Town is but that's for another blog post. 

We alighted at Sinsa Station exit 6 and followed Google map to the cafe. This is located in Garosu-gil in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam. It's an upscale area which can be compared to the Beverly Hills of California so I kind of anticipated the price point of the place that I was getting myself into. 

We waited for quite a while before the cafe opened so we had to stand outside. Good thing sunlight was a bit bright that day so we just stood there where the heat was because it was freezing cold.

Basically, the cafe is on the first floor and the restaurant is on the second. 

We were the first ones in the restaurants but soon enough, the tables were getting occupied. One of the things I noticed with the customers, though this is very expected is that, most of them are fans of Lee Jong Suk. 

The sosyalin service water.

This is a very fancy place, I tell you, and it shows in every detail of the whole cafe. Even the toilet fragrance was Joe Malone - gusto ko lang i-share kasi wala nga ako ng ganyan na perfume. haha! 

The serving was enough for me and it was filling. I like mushrooms and bacon so I knew that I'd like it even before it was served. Medyo hirap lang kainin kasi hindi ko alam paano dapat 'yan - kakagatin o puputulin ba?

Truffle Mushroom Sandwich
12,000 KRW

Some of the menu items are expensive but I thought paying 12,000 KRW for this was reasonable enough. Also, this is one of the low-priced menu items you can find in the cafe. The range of food prices are 12,000 KRW to 33,000 KRW.

Halatang puyat mata eh. :)))

Para rin kaming nag trabaho niyan e, gising ng 5 AM kasi kailangan namin maunahan si Lee Min Ho pumasok sa office e halos one hour 'yung layo ng hotel namin sa office niya. HAHAHAHA! Isipin mo bakasyon tapos pagod na pagod ka habang nasa subway, kahit nakatayo e feeling mo napapa-idlip ka ng sandali para sa 30 seconds ni LMH! Grabe.

May we all live the life we imagine. <3

Wall accents are nice as well and the bright natural light coming from the window was "invigorating" 'cause it was really cold back then. Dito kasi sa'tin, 'yung araw mainit. Doon, di mo masyado mapapansin 'yung araw puro malamig lang kahit may araw.
