Mission Accomplished: McDelivery

Since I got here, I’ve been struggling to try and figure out what my Korean address is. Turns out, the whole thing is printed on the back of my alien registration card. Classic Tia.

Anyway, in Korea, McDonald’s offers delivery. It’s called McDelivery. The only thing you need to know is your address in Korean. So, to my absolute delight, Steve and I decided to sit down and order last night. First, we tried doing it on the website. It was really confusing and complicated, and I almost gave up. Instead, I wondered if there was an app for it. There was. It was so simple. All I had to do was register, enter my address, and select what I wanted to eat.

In less than 30 minutes, there was a delivery guy at my door and we were even able to pay by card. So, our grand plans for the evening were eating our fast food and watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail (because Steve had never seen it before!).

This morning, we decided to go for a walk near the little park/river by my apartment. Instead of taking our usual route, we turned down a new street. In the distance, I saw it: Flapjack Pantry. We have been trying to find this restaurant for weeks! It’s a chain here in Korea and it serves Western-style breakfast and burgers. So exciting.

We grabbed a table (with a gorgeous view of a park), and stared at the menu. Everything sounded incredible. We settled on chocolate chip pancakes and Cajun chicken salad. We also almost forgot that everything here is for sharing, and were totally surprised when our food came. There was so much! The salad was great. Fresh greens, chunks of tomato, perfectly seasoned (crispy) chicken. All in a honey mustard dressing. And the pancakes! Don’t even get my started. They were huge and fluffy and came with a side of syrup and some delightfully decadent chocolate sauce.

Unf.

We also ran into my friend Hailey, who was with one of her friends. They got the English breakfast to split. Totally what I’m doing next time.

Now, it’s almost time for me to start getting ready for work. Happy Wednesday!

I also apologize for the lack of pictures. We devoured everything immediately.
