The International Herald Tribune purports that brunching is the new dining trend in Korea.


That brand spankin’ new five day work week.

The article also passes on the claim from other newspapers and restaurant owners that there may be 200 restaurants that serve an American style brunch.

200? Where?

I know of Suji’s, Butterfinger Pancake, and that other one Miss Koco talked about (she loves to brunch). If there were a lot my network would have told me about it, right?


Are they all hogging the blueberry pancakes?

I wonder if these sources from the IHT are counting the new Paris Baguette Cafes, the ones that now serve “brunch,” which consists of three items: french toast, continental breakfast (croissant), and fried chicken salad. And they never have the bread bowl soup whenever I go there. They just advertise it on big posters in front of the store.

I’m saving my rant on Paris Baguette for later–with photographic evidence.

A croissant a brunch makes not.

Can anyone tell me where these supposed 200 brunch stops are?
