Tango Du Chat. Classy European Brunch

Tango du Chat Pancake: Meringe Pancake with Mascarpone Cream Cheese & Summer Berries.  Not your typical American pancake. A lot thicker, fluffy with a base of maple syrup on the plate perfectly paired with fresh summer berries, nuts and a light and fluffy better than whipped cream sweet mascarpone cream cheese. Normally not one who loves pancakes, this dish was amazing!

Eggs Benedict: Homemade English Muffin, Poached Eggs, Proscuitto, Smoked Salmon Romaine Lettuce, Saffron Hollandaise Sauce.   The homemade English muffin had a very crispy bottom - excellent contrast to the texture of the egg and sauce. One piece had smoked salmon while the other had proscuitto. Both very good.

I would've ordered the French Toast, but they were sold out by then already! Great prices for excellent brunch food!

Each serving is in it's own bowl. Great combination to mix/dip the rice in the sauce of the ddukbokki.  You can add however many eggs in the dukkbokki for 500won each.

The regular spicy version was perfect. Not too spicy, not too salty. Loved having lots of sauce along with the bits of sesame seed leaves for garnish. I normally don't love 주목밥 (JooMokBab) because it's too plain, but this one was seasoned nicely with bits of ground beef and just the right amount of seaweed and sesame seed oil to make it nice - and it was great dipped in the ddukbokki sauce!
