My friend Aram and I decided to have a get together at Alice’s Tea Cup Chapter II, located in the upper east side of Manhattan. It is a perfect place if you and your girlfriends (or guy friends if they are willing to go), are looking for a place to chat over tea and scones (and other foods). There are currently three locations, all of them which happen to be in Manhattan.

We both ordered two scones and two pots of tea. They are mostly known for their delicious baked scones. You would have to ask your server what the daily selection was (includes pumpkin, almond, buttermilk, blueberry, etc.) I, for one, could agree that the scones were delicious– especially with the preserves/cream that they give you. Tasted very fluffy and buttery. We both got extremely full from them (each scone is about as big as one hand).

There are also a variety of teas you can choose from. I like to stick to the basics (green/black tea) so I ordered their signature tea which consisted of Indian black vanilla tea with Japanese green tea and rose petals while Aram chose ginger tea. Would definitely stop by again for the Alice in Wonderland experience.

A manager at my work place bought everyone (almost everyone) bubble tea. I think taro is the best flavor.

P.S. I love my wireless keyboard, mouse, and touchscreen 20″ monitor at work! I want to take it home with me.

I went into this Korean restaurant, once again, and did not know what to order. I wanted to eat something I have not had much of so I ordered Ddaro Guk Bap.

The meal started off with a Korean styled split pea soup. Honestly, I cannot differentiate between split pea soup at a American restaurant and split pea soup at Todam. It was hearty and was a welcome start to the meal.

Then came the main dish, ddaro guk bap. This dish is basically a spicy soup with beef, scallions, bracken fern, onions, and more. Extremely spicy and delicious. I dumped my bowl of rice in the soup and ate it together. If you are not a fan of spicy foods, I do not recommend this dish.

The meal ended with a cold ginger tea which cleansed the pallet. Overall, it was a very good meal.
