[SEOUL SELECT] A Day in Hongdae Series: Restaurants in the Evening

Hello! It’s Ashley! Welcome to my blog post in our A Day in
Hongdae series!
Now that you’ve spent a whole day at Hongdae seeing cafes, shopping,
and art, you may be feeling a little hungry.
Hongdae is popular for its wide variety of delicious foods and nicely
decorated restaurants, with restaurants in sight no matter where you go.
However, this also means that when choosing where to go for dinner,
you may be a bit overwhelmed.

To help narrow down your options, I will be introducing three options of
restaurants that you may want to consider during your outing at Hongdae.
Hopefully, these options will be extensive enough to satisfy a wide
variety of tastes and help you get a taste of Korean culture through food!

1. Dwaeji Sanghoe (돼지상회)

For Korean barbecue lovers, you may want to check out Dwaeji
Sanghoe!
It’s a spot for all you can eat barbecue, to fill your stomach on a low
budget.
They serve 7 different kinds of pork, including pig skin, and also serve
fried chicken, soybean paste stew, korean cold noodles, rice, soda, and
vegetables for wraps (ssam).
Their full course, which is all these foods unlimited, is only 15,900won!
They also have a cafe for after your meal, and drinks are only 500won!

.

Dwaeji Sanghoe is very popular amongst locals, so you will likely see
Korean students, office workers, or families enjoying a meal here.
You should be aware that different courses provide different foods, but
you can easily ask for an English, Chinese, or Japanese menu to decide
which set will suit your tastes best!

.

.

Hours: 11:30AM – 12:00AM
Cafe Hours: 11:30AM-5:00PM
Address: 355-28, Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

2. Young Dabang (청년다방)

A huge attraction in Korea is their amazing street food.
One of the most popular Korean street foods you may have heard of is
Ddukbokki!
This next restaurant is a ddukbokki restaurant called Young Dabang
(Cheong-nyeon Dabang in Korean).
This restaurant is very popular amongst young locals for its delicious food
and cheap prices.
You will probably see this restaurant posted on many Korean social
media sites.

.

They are super popular for their Chadol (beef brisket) Ddukbokki and
their Butter Garlic Fries!
The ddukbokki is around 13,000~14,000won for 2~3 servings.
Their rice cakes are super chewy and the sauce is amazing!
This restaurant also has a cafe that sells a variety of cafe drinks for very
cheap!
Their americanos are only 1,500won (approximately $1.25 USD)!

.

.

Hours: 11:00AM – 9:30PM
Last order at 9:00PM
Address: 20, Yanghwa-ro 18an-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul

3. Witch’s Kitchen (마녀주방)

Witch’s Kitchen is a fun restaurant for any Halloween enthusiasts!
This is the perfect place if you’re missing Western food while travelling
in Korea!
Although pizza and pasta may not be your first thought for a meal when
travelling in Korea, I assure you, you will not regret a trip to Witch’s Kitchen.

.

I tried their Snake Rose Pasta, Snowflake Meat Tomato Pasta, and their
Kimchi Cheese Chili Rice, all of which were amazing.
Their pastas were around 11,000~14,000won.
The presentation of the food is very cool and unique, so it’s a perfect
photo taking opportunity to show off the interesting foods Korea has
to offer!
They also have a Halloween party on the 31st of every month if you enjoy
dressing up and being spooky!

.

.

Hours: 12PM – 10:30PM (Breaktime at 3PM-5PM)
Saturdays and Sundays no break
Address: 36-10 Wausan-ro 21-gil, Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

I hope you found a restaurant that you like and can visit it in the near
future!
Each restaurant is amazing and highly recommended by me and all
the other interns here at Seoul Life.
Hopefully you like these places as much as we did!

[SEOUL SELECT] Yeonnam-dong, the Central Park of Seoul

.

Hello everyone!
Welcome to the first post in my series of blog posts focused on travel in Korea!
If you are planning a trip to Korea, are currently travelling in Korea, or
are simply reading this post because you’re interested in Korean culture,
you’ve come to the right place!
I will be introducing some places for people who may want
recommendations from locals and people living in Korea.

.

.

Today’s focus will be on Yeonnam-dong!
Yeonnam-dong is a trendy neighborhood that many young people in Seoul frequent.
It has a variety of nice cafes, restaurants, and a grassy area
where many people picnic and enjoy outdoor activities.
Yeonnam-dong is perfect for if you want to see a side of Seoul
different from places like Hongdae, which is right across the street.

1. Gyeongui-Line Forest Park (경의선숲길)

.

 When you get out of exit 3 at Hongik University station and
make your way into Yeonnam-dong, one of the first things you
will notice is the strip of grassy green in the middle of the street.
This grassy area, which stretches for 6.3km, is called
Gyeongui-Line Forest Park, popularly called Yeontral Park or the
Central Park of Seoul.

.

.
Many people from all around Seoul come to Yeonnam-dong to get
a breath of fresh air and a change of scenery from the fast paced city life.
The park is a perfect place for picnics with your family, friends,
or significant other.
You can buy food and drinks at one of the many nearby vendors,
rent bikes to ride along the park, or walk your furry friends!

.

Address: 147-89 Donggyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

2. Their Coffee (데얼커피)

.
While picnicking at the Gyeongui-Line Forest Park, you may get a
little hungry or thirsty.
In that case, you may want to stop by Their Coffee!
Their Coffee is a cafe not far from the Gyeongui-Line Forest Park,
but what sets them apart from other cafes is their picnic sets.
Their picnic sets include food, drinks, and snacks that are perfect for a
picnic at Gyeongui-Line Forest Park.

.

.
What comes in the set, however, changes every month.
Be aware, you need to reserve a set in advance!
You can reserve a set by DMing their official Instagram and
setting up a pickup date and time.

.

Hours: 12:00PM~9:00PM
Closed on Thursdays
Address: 566-19, Yeonnam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

3. Gamchil (감칠)

.

Gamchil is a fusion style restaurant that serves pastas with a Korean twist.
Their pastas and risottos include traditional Korean ingredients,
such as fermented soybean paste or red pepper paste, which add Korean
flavors to their Western style foods.
Their most popular menu items are their Wild Chive Soybean Paste Cream
Pasta and their Red Pepper Paste Pork Belly Cream Pasta.
I personally enjoyed the Red Pepper Paste Pork Belly Cream Pasta, which
was a unique mix of creamy and spicy, a taste you won’t find
anywhere else.

.

.

Hours: 12:00PM~1:00AM
Address: 385-6, Yeonnam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

4. 5NN5FF (온앤오프)

.

5NN5FF (pronounced On and Off) is a cafe with very modern style
decor and delicious desserts.
5NN5FF is known for their brownies, cutely decorated with frosting to
resemble a face, but their drinks and other desserts are equally yummy!
The cafe is decorated with neon purple lights and all white furniture and is
a perfect place to take pictures with a nice vibe.

.

Hours: 2:00PM~11:00PM
Mondays off
Address: 228-32, Yeonnam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul

5. Dongjin Market

Dongjin Market is a traditional style market hidden in the streets of Yeonnam-dong.
Every weekend, there is a flea market that features handmade accessories
and trinkets by young local artists.
The market is small, but there is plenty to see, and you may find a one of a
kind accessory perfect for you!

.

Hours: Fridays-Sundays
Address: 198 Seongmisan-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul

Of course, there are many more options for places to see in Yeonnam-dong.
These were just a few of my picks from the Yeonnam-dong area that
I wanted to introduce.
Hopefully, this article provided options to satisfy your taste and helps a little with
planning your trip to Korea!
