I met up with my friend Crys earlier this week in Kangnam to hang out and, of course, eating (duh it’s me, hanging out 97% of the time includes some sort of food). While we were quickly catching up, I mentioned that I had never been to Butterfingers, partly because from what I had heard it’s a place you should go to with a friend because there’s at least a 30 minute wait, and since I usually only eat out on the weekends, I never really am into waiting for a seat to eat.
So off we went to Butterfingers. I think because we went on a Tuesday during lunch time, we were able to immediately be seated (!!!). It’s such a funny mishmash of styles: urban industrial lights, retro curved hanging lamps, American diner style tables, 60s egg curved chairs, high bar chairs and tables. The menu is a huge oversized lamenated paper with a seemingly neverending list of food and drinks (although some drinks are only available at certain locations) on both the front and the back.
After a LOT of humming and hawing, I finally decided on the garden omelette that came with fried potatoes and two buttermilk pancakes (with butter and honey). I was a bit shocked by the amount of food that came on the plate:
I only was able to eat the majority of the omelette and the pancakes (they were soooo good, I was a little sad when I realized that I ate all of them, even though I was stuffed to the brim).
DIRECTIONS: Exit out of Exit 6 at the Gangnam subway station. Turn at the corner, after you turn there should be a Body Shop on your left. You should see Butterfingers on your left about in about 5 minutes after the Body Shop.
