Where to Have American Brunch in Seoul

Tucked in a quiet neighborhood, Maissong (마이쏭) is an inviting open-air restaurant for serious brunch hunters. It’s a rustic, American-style brunch place by Chef Lee Song-Hee, who’s behind the crowd-favorite Grand Ciel and Hyundai Department Store’s Chef Box. The charming restaurant famously serves Spinach & Bacon Eggs Benedict, Shrimp Tacos, and French Toast, which you can follow-through with a slice of their homemade cakes.

If you want to have a fail-proof brunch experience in Seoul, then make your way to Maissong, which offers these a la carte and unlimited buffet options:

1. A la Carte Brunch in Maissong

First up on the menu, Maissong’s Cobb Salad. With its generous serving of chopped greens, veggies, and boiled eggs, this is the perfect way to start your meal. You can choose to have their signature Ssong Burger next, which delights with a big and juicy patty.

If you want to have some lighter options for your brunch in Seoul, go for Maissong’s Shrimp Taco or BLT Sandwich. The former has the right amount of cajun kick, while the BLT is a towering sandwich that may just remind you of home.

Fan of the British-combo Fish & Chips? Maissong’s version will definitely delight. Cooked to golden brown perfection, the fish just melts in your mouth. You can also have some French Toast, which tastes as awesome as it looks! (You will not want to share.)

Last but not least, the Eggs Benedict. No visit to this brunch restaurant in Seoul is complete without trying this dish. I like how the muffins and eggs are cooked to perfection, and the heavenly hollandaise sauce just completes everything.
