MORE BRUNCH!

On Friday afternoons I like to meet my girlfriends for brunch. We have discovered yet another fantastic dining establishment, The Flying Pan Blue. It is located on a small street just to the right of the Hamilton Hotel in Itaewon. Oh, the menu has so many delicious things: banana and walnut pancakes, something beautifully insane called chocolate ecstasy, and so much more it makes it really difficult to decide what to eat.

I got the curry chicken sandwich. It was great. The best thing about their sandwiches is the bread. Typical grocery stores usually don't carry anything exciting like fresh baguettes or a nice cinnamon raison bread. So when it's not even all that easy to find a loaf of whole wheat, the great home-baked tasting bread they have at Flying Pan Blue makes me so excited.

Jess got the avocado chicken salad. It's too bad they're so expensive in Korea because avocados are so good and good for you. While they are high in calories, they have that "good fat." I just found out that:
1. Avocado has been used traditionally to help people with sexual problems.

2. Great antioxidant and can be used for skin disorders

3. Avocado will aid healing for people suffering from digestive and circulatory problems

4. Another benefit of avocado for the skin where avocado paste can be applied to rashes and rough skin to make it smoother.

5. The brighter the fruit, the more beta-carotene (the substance that helps to prevent cancer) your avocado contains.
Liz had the salmon salad and the other Jess had the grilled veggie sandwich with pesto. As a group we topped off an order of potato wedges with sweet chili sauce and mayo. All dishes we had are highly recommended. Be advised that this place is not cheap, but it's well worth it!
