Alex and the Coffee at AND – Seoul

21 avril 2015 § Poster un commentaire

I read in a magazine that the owner of this cafe located in Hannam-dong prepared good ice coffee. Until now, the only experience of ice coffee I had were disappointing: just water, loads of ice cube but no taste of « coffee ». With spring and warm temperatures arriving in Seoul, it was the perfect timing to give a try. Alex and the coffee best seoul cold brew travel south korea itaewonAlex and the coffee itaewon best south korea seoulAlex and the coffee is also a restaurant, which I had not the opportunity to visit but their pastries were just amazing (on the picture the salted caramel brownie), if not the best I ever had in Seoul.

삼청동 맛집: 풍년 쌀 농산 떡볶이 / Where to eat Tteokbokki – Seoul

14 avril 2015 § 5 Commentaires

Tteok-bokki is a korean dish made of rice and red chili sauce – 고추장. It is the most widespread dish sold in food trucks and stalls as it is easy to prepare. A good Tteok-bokki should have a soft and chewy rice base and a sweet chili sauce which is not too spicy. After trying several addresses for finding the one, Ppoung-nyon Ssal Nong-san (풍년 쌀 농산) Tteok-bokki was the place which met all my expectations. It is like crepe in France: very easy to cook but only few places do it really well. seoul food spicy hot tteokbokki best sugarsheet vegetarian The fried one on a skewer was my favorite : crispy and chewy at the same time, with a spread of sweet red sauce. seoul south korea best dish food tteokbooki spicy hot korean The drink to have with Tteok-bokki is Shik-he (식혜) made of rice and brown sugar.

Located in what used to be a shoe factory, Anthracite coffee is hidden between residential buildings near Hapjeong and Seongsu station. If you are a coffee connoisseur, you will be able to appreciate carefully sourced beans in a calm atmosphere far from the hustle and bustle. anthracite coffee seoul hongdae hapjeong hip cool best travel south korea beans espresso Seoul coffee anthracite roasters best beans travel south korea  hip cool

Peer Coffee Roasters – Seoul

With Ho-Chi-Minh, Seoul is certainly the city with the most cafes per square-meter. But not all of them have good beans, and the competition on price / atmosphere is fierce. While discovering Hannam-dong, I came across this lovely place, located in a residential area. Peer coffee roast their own beans and they propose a different pastry every week. Peer coffee roasters seoul itaewon coffee best travel vegetarian hannamdong south korea

O’Sulloc is a Tea house from Jeju with several branches across South Korea. Their teas are sold in department stores and you can go to the tea museum when you visit Jeju Island. As a matcha lover, O’Sulloc is like a second home for me when I visit Seoul. They have the best Soy green tea latte I had so far,  made with Soy milk from Jeju and my favorite O-Fredo, which is a Green tea Frappe topped with a scoop of ice cream. osulloc south korea matcha green tea garosu gil tea house travel innisfree

Creative street food – Seoul

5 avril 2015 § 4 Commentaires

The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is.  strawberry mochi seoul street food myoungdong food travel south korea mochi rabbit seoul south korea travel dessert food myoung dong where  I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.hanok street food seoul tteokbokki south korea spicy hot

It was also in Myoung-dong -명동.rainbow cotton candy seoul street food myoungdong foodie food deliciouswaffle seoul street food myoung dong delicious ice cream south korea travelice cream waffle seoul south korea food myoung dong restaurant

If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood. vegetarian seoul dessert street food travel south korea restaurant

I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.
