Slinging sushi, salads and scramblers at T.G Brunch
In the mood for an omelet? You got it. Sushi? Yep. Cream pasta? Burrito? Shepherd’s pie? No prob. T.G Brunch, in Gyeongnidan, has just about everything, it seems.
Ken Choi, the owner, was born and raised in Seoul, but lived in the States for eight years. He was a sushi chef in Hawaii for six, and lived in California for two. While abroad, he learned the intricacies of the Western pallet. He returned to Korea and continued to cook for an foreign audience before finally opening his own restaurant.
He aims to fill just about any desire with his nine-page menu. T.G Brunch has it all: a whole range of breakfast dishes, burgers, salads, pasta, fish and chips, Cajun chicken, Philly cheese steak, wings, cheese sticks – even edamame. And of course, Choi puts his sushi-making experience to use, offering a selection of American-style sushi rolls. He has all the favorites: California roll, dragon roll, spicy tuna roll and Philadelphia roll in all its cream cheesy goodness.
T.G’s namesake is brunch, and they have plenty of options for that. Previously closed on Sundays, T.G is now open then (they’re closed on Mondays). They serve brunch in the morning and all day. One of the most unique features on the menu is the “build-your-own brunch.” Diners can pick and choose what they like. T.G has all the normal fare: eggs, bacon, hash browns, beans, coffee. They also do eggs Benedict, omelets, stuffed croissants and breakfast burritos. Brunch sets are 8,000 to 13,000 won.
T.G is on the bustling main road of Gyeongnidan. One wall is decorated with paintings of dogs. Another is covered with a mural of London. Choi said it’s his dream to one day own a café there.
Directions: To get to T.G Brunch, walk straight out of Noksapyeong Station, exit 2. At the traffic lights, turn right and walk up the street between Noxa and Le Saigon. T.G Brunch is on the left.
