Last month I had the privilege of dining at La Marmite, a fabulous new french restaurant located in Haebangchon (HBC). I also had the pleasure of publishing my article in Groove magazine, my first ever magazine article! But anyway, my boyfriend and I both dined here, and couldn't praise La Marmite's food more. While I am certainly no french food restaurant, being a foodie I know good food when it's in front of me. The food was amazing. The chefs patiently explained every dish and you could really see the passion they had for french food. I would love to go back to this restaurant on a date or for brunch. While I have not had brunch here yet, I heard their fried chicken and pancakes is amazing. For dinner, they serve a 4-course delicious meal at only 35,000 won. This is an amazing price for the quality of food here. Anyway, check out my article in Groove Magazine for the full review, and to see the yummy food pics by the photographer Hannah Green. Enjoy!
