Hi Seoul Eats Readers,

First of all, happy Valentine's Day. I want to thank everyone that participated in the Tartine Too Brunch Poetry Contest.  We had a number of Korean people also participate. 감사합니다. We had 14 people participate and write some great poems for the contest.

Jared Kim 2 nd. Large  Strawberry Pie
D Esquiline 3rd. Lava Cake Set


JI Young. 1st. Andrew Jackson Breakfast

Here are the winning entries: This one by Ji Kim:

Ji Kim

First Entry?
Why don’t you buy me
My heart decomposes
At the endless proposes
you throw at me.

When you took me to CHICAGO
(WINDY CITY) CHILI is how I felt
in my pants,
As you tried to take a stance
at the lack of romance
that is in your pockets.

(This poem does not reflect the kind of person I am =P)

오렌지빛 빛나는 조명아래에서
반짝이는 작은 타르트를 바라보며
나는 꿈을 꿔요 한 로맨틱한 일요일을.
Eggxcelent boyfriend과 함께하는 Eggceptional omlet breakfast
Brender’s Germen pancake breakfast 의 매력에 나는 완전 Surrendered.
그리고 무엇보다 소중한건 Chilling time with Chicago windy chili.
분명 멋질꺼예요. 우리의 데이트는.
반짝거리는 저 Tartine들만큼.

All of the winners, please email me so I can send you the gift certificates.

Thanks for participating.
