In Korea, Italian food is really popular, much more popular than it is in New Zealand. Korean's seem to really love pizza and pasta which is great for us - because when we need a break from kimchi and rice we can always rely on Italian places for western style food.
Our city Uijeongbu seems to have quite a few Italian places, but the strange thing is a lot of them seem to have super girly decor. I guess this is because they are the kinds of places couples or groups of girls would go for dinner. But I have to admit the girly-ness at these places is really off the scale. Usually the restaurant will have an area decorated in a pastel shade of pink, purple, yellow, blue or pink - each of these areas will have a number of super girly nick naks which usually include everything from small pot plants to cutesy little ceramic animals.
I quite like these places as the food is great and the decor is amusing to say the least - the restaurant owners obviously go to a lot of effort to perfect the super girly look.
Last Monday night Rich and I went to our favourite super girly restaurant before meeting a friend for coffee and here are some of the photos - the food was great and the added bonus about this place is that we always get free cake.
