JenCooks at Scout

It has been so long since we posted that I actually forgot the login details. The reasons are the same: too busy and too lazy. However, I think with the coming of Seoul summer the inspiration is back.


The other reason is that the love of food which went into hibernation over Korean Winter has found a new home. The Magpie couple – Erik and Tiffany – who Jen worked with on Semi-Permanent recently opened a new bar/ restaurant/ cafe and they offered Jen and I the chance to do a brunch spot there on a semi-regular basis.

Basically they handle the cocktails and we handle the food.

Also when I say Jen and I, I mean Jen and I got given pink plastic gloves and told to wash.

The first one was last weekend, the second Sunday of the month, and was kept secret until the day out of a fear it would be a debacle given the difficulty of finding everything we wanted to cook and also wanting to make sure it was good – actually good – before people came to it.

The menu was a mixture of food from all the countries which we love and you can’t get in Seoul for love or imported spices, so Mexican-American-Hong Kong-European fusion:

  • Mexican stewed tomatoes with poached eggs on garlic toast
  • Spam hash with soft poached eggs and hollandaise
  • Scallion corncakes with Linus’ ‘Bama pulled pork and soft poached eggs
  • Coconut pancakes with soft poached eggs and a Srirachi butter sauce
  • Coconut pancakes with brûléed cherries and Chinese five spice mascarpone cream

It seemed popular as I washed things for at least six hours. The next one should be the second Sunday of July. Again at Scout.

Address – Scout, Hannam 2-dong, 683-31 (한남2동 683-31호)

PS the pictures are fairly terrible as I was just trying to grab them as the food passed by dish washing station. Next time I should be a customer…

PPS the other two cooking heroes should be mentioned: Linus and Tori. As they can actually cook and were allowed in the kitchen.

  1. I think pictures are pretty neat and nice considering you were cooking (or obstructing Jen while she was cooking/plating the plates) and washing the dishes at the same time ;)

    Also or more importantly, everything look delish. I´m intrigued by the scallion corncakes with pork and the Coc pancakes.

  2. I’m obsessed with your blog! I’m a new reader…but absolutely love it!! Please write more!! New reader…but definitely a new fan now!

  3. I hope you post regularly because I just found your blog and I love it! The food looks amazing. I’ve never had savory pancakes before but they look so good.

  4. You should take part in a contest for one of the best websites on the internet.

    I will recommend this web site!

  5. This will help you in selecting the company on the basis of the services offered and also on the cost they charge.
    ” The easy answer to that difficult and (often) emotionally charged issue is that you need to determine how much stuff you will really need to take along to your new home. From the years since inception of Moving – Relocation, a number of other websites begun to emulate the degree of customer support it offers.

  6. She has a charm that is slightly reminiscent of the childhood favourite Rosie and Jim’s Ragdoll,
    with a modernized interior to suit the 21st century traveller.
    After users select their avatar they’re transported
    into their apartment. The exception to this rule is when fishing structure,
    there will always be a calm spot behind structure that cat fish rest in and
    it will be natural for your bait to settle in this area.
