Magnolia of New York, which sparked a cupcake craze by appearing in the movie Sex and the City, opened its first store at Hyundai Department Store Pangyo. The subtle pastel-toned atmosphere of the store and the colorful cupcakes in the show window combine to create an atmosphere like you're in a fairy tale. The most famous menu is banana pudding made by grinding bananas, and red velvet cupcakes made by putting vanilla frosting on a red velvet cake sheet, but these two menus are so popular that you can only order 1 piece per person. Banana pudding has a soft texture with a soft, pleasant banana scent. Red velvet cupcakes have a deep cocoa flavor that comes out of the moist sheet.

Songok, recognized as one of Korea's top three soba noodles, first opened in Gwanghwamun in 1961 and moved to Bukchang-dong to settle down. When this song-ok soba was added to Hyundai Department Store Pangyo, it became easier to find and enjoy it. They sell soba, udon, and pork cutlets. Songok's tsuyu is extracted using only anchovies from Yeosu, and it has a pretty rich flavor compared to other places. If you add as many radishes, green onions, and wasabi as you like to this tsuyu and eat it with soba noodles, your heart will feel refreshed. You can enjoy pan-soba, cold soba, and warm soba for 8,000 won each, and a set meal with deep-fried shrimp and deep-fried sushi for 12,000 won.
Why don't you enjoy an elegant brunch this weekend at Sarabeth's in New York, which Oprah Winfrey praised? Sarabeth, located in the Pangyo branch, is so famous that it's no exaggeration to say that it's the face of this place. Uniquely located in a fashion shop on the 2nd floor. The most famous item on the menu is, after all, eggs benedict. Place a plump soft-boiled egg with ham on top of the English muffin and sprinkle hollandaise sauce to complete. Fans here say that when you cut the center of an egg Benedict with a knife, it's perfect if the yolk pops and flows down. When you take a bite, the ensemble of chewy English muffins, eggs, and sauce is amazing.
