Oh Me Oh My - A Secret Space

Hello there!
On Nicole's last day in Liverpool, we went for afternoon tea at Oh Me Oh My. This place is located somewhere nearby where Albert Dock is. This place was recommended to me by a staff from The LEAF as the afternoon tea there was fully booked when I called. Oh Me Oh My is only opened for afternoon tea on weekdays whereas The LEAF is only opened for tea during the weekends. 

This is where it is ; Inside West Africa House

If you look closely, it says OH ME OH MY on the glass window ;

I absolutely love this place, such class and enormous space. There were not many people but everything was perfect during our visit. I guess that's why they call it A Secret Space. To be honest, I already love this place by it's name. It sounds so bitchy in the 20th century if you say it in that sort of accent and attitude. If you get it what I mean.

SO PRETTY RIGHT. And also that girl in the next picture. I know you think so too, don't lie to yourself.

There were selection of teas for us on the table. These are samples which are put in a box. We can smell it and do whatever with it. The best part is, we can have as many tea pots of different teas as we want with no extra costs! And the staffs were really friendly. It is one of the best place I've been to so far in the UK.

.. And our teas arrived! I think we've ordered Lemon and two different flower teas 

I am just so feminine 

And here's our tea set 

Selection of sandwiches (I LOVE THE HAM AND CHEESE ONES) 

Crème brûlée, Orange madeleine 

Scones with cream & jam, Chocolate & cream éclair  

This shows how much I love this place x

Oh my god, oh my god! And I think the next two pictures are so artistic 

There is this huge mirror that looks like Hollywood stars' mirrors in their changing rooms  

Better news, all these for £14 per person! It's quite pricey but it's much more reasonable compared to other tea houses with such ambiance. Highly recommend this place to everybody! X

Lots of Love,

Seoul Love, Bold Street

Hello there,
Nicole came to visit and we dined at Seoul Love which is at Bold Street. Nicole decided that she loved Bold Street when she came over cause let me tell you, this street has EVERYTHING. Anyway, this restaurant is basically a fusion of Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

To be honest, the whole restaurant did not felt like a Korean restaurant but it's more like a Chinese restaurant trying to be a Korean restaurant. Besides those little random Korean decorations, it felt pretty much like a typical Chinese restaurant.

Geddit now? I mean I can't complain cause it's a fusion restaurant. 

These are the drinks we've ordered ;

有没有很 Kyeopta
PS: The bottled green tea is disgusting.

Seafood Kimchi Korean Pancake ;

Personally, I dislike kimchi very much. This does not have a strong Kimchi taste so it's alright for me. However, if it's for typical Koreans or Kimchi lovers, this is definitely a big no-no. There were not much seafoods in this pancakes, which is such a huge disappointment. 

Bulgogi, Grilled Marinated Beef ;
I did not like this. It was not great and definitely not good. I love the onions on it more than the meat itself.

Jap Chae, Korean Glass Noodles ;

This was the only dish that we both thought was better among the rest. I did not think any Korean restaurants can actually get this wrong unless it's shit. 

Ginseng Chicken Soup ;

There was not any taste to this soup and without the right taste, this whole dish is ruined. The best one I've tasted was a Korean restaurant in Oxford. I want to go back Oxford someday. 

I did not like this restaurant but give it a try if you're curious. The price is actually very reasonable compared to the other Koreans restaurants I've been to. There were nobody throughout the time we've spent there. I guess there's a reason for that. Or maybe it was cause that was way pass dinner time when we were there.

Lots of Love,
