I made way to Coex mall once to meet a friend and another to spend all my paychecks. I walked endlessly in the largest underground shopping center in Asia till I became so hungry I stopped for food. Visitors can choose amongst Asian and Western delicacies, suitable for any tourist. I selected Table Star after my mom raved about how amazing pasta tasted in Korea.
The menu offers a variety of Italian cuisine ranging including pasta, pizza and Italian entrees. I ate a white cream sauce pasta, while my uncle and grandma tried a bolognese.
So is it true, does the pasta taste better?
I’m not entirely sure why it’s difficult to find a decent bowl of pasta in the US without paying a price. Yet on numerous occasions, I managed to fall in love with my favorite carb dish each time I stopped for a meal. It reminded me of Italy; the perfect consistency of a handmade noodle created freshly in the morning. Someone said at a handful of places, businesses use flour directly imported from both France and Italy.
Oh, and the french fries barely held excess oil. Shoe string potatoes with just a pinch of salt grazed on top might be one of the best sides to any meal.
