A few days ago, I realized via facebook that Diana (from
foodology) was going to be staying in Seoul for a few days so I instantly
contacted her to set up a day to hang. Knowing the both of us, I could already
tell that we will both be spending the whole day eating… and enjoy it.

this place called “Miss Lee Cafe”.

would be good right? Decent, at least? NO. This was the most horrible thing I’ve

still wouldn’t recommend this cafe because the food was just THAT terrible. If
you watched the “We Got Married” episode and still want to visit, I’d suggest getting one of their drinks (which are also very expensive) or lunch box instead.
