Cafe for Foreigners

You Are Here Café

(A café for foreigners)

I can say it’s a perfect cafe for foreigners.
All staff can speak English, and there’s even a foreign waitress (or waiter).

If you would like to learn Korean language,
this place can be quite interesting for you
as you can find a lot of books on the shelves to learn Korean language.

Also, the Korean language class is held here twice a week.
(More details below..)

This cafe looks awesome at night.

It’s bit away from the main Hongdae street, so it’s usually quiet here.

Main entrance.

These are the books for learning Korean.
You can freely read all the books here. 

There are many interesting choices of drinks.
I recommend you Korean traditional teas which are sweet and healthy. :) 

Cakes are amazing here. 
Actually, this cafe is popular for it's delicious cakes.
They are just so addictive!!! :D

Korean Language Class!!
Seems many people in this class.
They all look very enjoyed.. and I saw they're having birthday party together. :)
This should be a good place to meet some friends
and have fun while you're learning Korean language.

Everyone here is like a big family.
Staff are so friendly, and people here are so easy to be friends.

I think many people are here as a study group or for a language exchange things.
Many of them seem they're studying or discussing something.

Simple Pub

Hero Salon


This is a small cozy pub

where you can enjoy beers and little snacks at a reasonable price.

What I really don’t’ understand about Korea is that
you MUST order a snack or a dish when you drink at most pubs.
I think everyone has experienced it at least once in Korea. :-(
But you know…
we usually drink as a second/third round after we finish dinner.
We’re not hungry anymore at a pub!! :(

That’s why I call this place the best little pub in Hongdae!

It’s a great place to enjoy few beers and maybe just a little snack.

The walls are full of funny hero paintings,
and you can see all different action figures and dolls everywhere.

It’s quite interesting interior. :D

Tables are quite small,
but it makes the atmosphere more cozy and lovely.

I think couples and girls like this pub more than guys.

Grapefruit beer is very sweet and yummy! You should try.. :)

Seasoned French fries are the best here!!! Best with beers!! :D

Korean BBQ Restaurant #2

Korean BBQ Restaurant

소문난 백정

This is a Korean BBQ restaurant where you can enjoy
yummy BBQ with unlimited vegetables. :D

As you know, Korean BBQ is the best with onion (or Kimchi, or garlic),
and there are many more choices of vegetables to eat together with meat here!!!
All the vegetables are free and unlimited!!! Oh yeah~

They serve onion, mushroom, garlic, seasoned bean sprouts, pumpkin, 
egg, lettuce, and Kimchi with meat. :) Plus, beanpaste soup!!!

                                    The brown paste is called Ssamjang, 
          and you should try this with some grilled pork!! It will taste DELICIOUS!

If you are having beef, I recommend you eat beef with just little bit of salt. :)

Pieces of pork belly are changing their color. Almost ready!! :D

Have some vegetables with a piece of grilled pork belly
and the special sauce, Ssamjang, (or red pepper paste). 

Everyone loves it!!!

            If your grill got dirty, just ask staff to clean it. It's so easy and quick!
