For the past month or two my favourite neighbourhood bar has been serving up brunch. They are already wildly sought after for their cheap drinks, awesome burgers, and incredibly handsome bar tenders but now there’s an even greater reason to go and pay them a visit, and that’s their incredibly tasty and well priced brunch. For the first few weeks it was being kept a secret, but now the word is out I thought it was about time I shared it with my loyal and faithful readers.
The brunch menu only has three items, but they are all so awesome there really is little reason to go anywhere else.
The first item is The Big English Breakfast (12,000). 2 eggs cooked to your liking, toast, sausage patty, fried tomatoes, home fries, mushrooms, and beans. Everything on this breakfast is perfectly cooked, but the star items are the well seasoned sausage patty and home made baked beans, they are just so rich and tasty! My only small quibble is I wish they had real butter for the toast. But 12,000 is an exceptional price for such a good quality full English , I’d probably say it’s the best in the city, and I love the fact that it’s on my door step and therefore close enough to go to in my pyjamas!
As well as the breakfast they serve Eggs Benedict (10,000). Two sous vide poached eggs which always come out just right with a lovely runny yolk. topped with a tangy hollandaise sauce. I ordered the bacon version but they also serve Eggs Montreal which comes with Canadian bacon (10,000), or Eggs Royale which comes with salmon (12,000).
Last up is the Holiday Waffle (8,000). A pumpkin spice waffle topped with whipped cream. I’m usually no fan of pumpkin spice but this waffle was amazing, just the right balance of sweet and spiciness. It’s the perfect way to round off a weekend breakfast, we split it 3 ways but I could easily eat this myself.
In my book brunch isn’t brunch without some appropriate daytime alcoholic beverages and Phillies doesn’t let you down their either. The have Mimosas and Bellinis for 5,000 each,
Or my favourite Bloody Mary’s (8,000) and Bloody Ceasars (9,000). As well as beer, wine, spirits and anything else they serve in the bar. It’s the perfect brunch spot for those who want to get their day drink on.
As well as a getting a stellar brunch, you can also see this hot stud in the kitchen, a 26 year old Canadian who in his free time likes reading Elizabethan poetry and taking long walks on the beach. He’s single and ready to mingle ladies!
Phillies is located at 44-17 Yongsan-dong, 2 ga, Seoul. To get there take a train to Noksapyeong Station (line 6). Come out of exit 2 and walk straight. When you reach the end of the tree lines street, take the road bearing left and walk straight past the kimchi pots. Keep going straight, past The Hidden Cellar and Bonny’s Pizza. Phillies is on the left side opposite BurgerMine. For more information you can check out their facebook page.
