Negatives aside, if you want dessert or more specifically pancakes then this place really should be your first choice.
|Triple chocolate pancakes and Buttermilk Pancakes.|
"Triple Choco Pancakes" with a side order of Buttermilk pancakes served with raspberry compote and honey vanilla butter. This is what I ate on my last visit and will probably eat again in the next few days now that I've started thinking about it again.The picture actually isn't doing these guys justice, the choco pancakes are bigger than they appear here and the scoops of ice-cream are big enough to give you brain freeze several times over. I'll try to take better photos in future!
|Butterfinger's "Scooby Snack"|
I have a small problem with making decisions and if you do too then this is an option that covers almost all of it. This spectacular creation is called "Scooby Snack". It's a jar of goodness (fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, blackberry compote, various ice-cream flavors, raspberry sorbet, marshmallow goo, topped with pretty sugar strands) served with a stack of mini buttermilk pancakes and a waffle topped with raspberry compote. I should add that I ate this on a separate occasion from the pancake picture above.
Although I enjoyed it I haven't ever ordered this again because;
1) I dislike green tea ice-cream a lot, actually it angers me a little. A lot of Koreans seem to love it though
and it occurs on my plate far too often for my liking. Green tea featured here as you can see.
2) I felt really sick after demolishing it. I shared it with one other person but it may be wise to share
3) It was actually really awkward and messy to get the yumminess out of the jar. Looked cool though.
Butterfinger pancakes has three locations, Cheongdam (nearest subways are Apgujeong and Gangnam-gu Office), Gangnam Station and one in Bundang (which I haven't been to and therefore can't provide directions for. A simple internet search should help you find it though).
To get to the one in Cheongdam you should take a cab from Apgujeong station or Gangnam-gu Office. Ask to go to Cheongdam Intersection. Look for the giant ape (you can't miss it) on the side of a yellow building and head for the area behind that building, you should walk up a street between Burger King and Outback. It's on the left 30 seconds up that street.
To get to the Gangnam branch, go out of exit number six, walk straight and take the first left you get to. Then just keep walking straight until you see it on your left. It's about 2 minutes from the station.
