Hosijeol | Mapo-gu, Seoul


A personal favorite cafe, Hosijeol’s concept is a contemporary Korean environment. Small potted plants and Korean scripts line the walls and incredibly cheap and healthy snacks (sliced watermelon, hard-boiled eggs, almond cookies) are a refreshing change t0 7,000W cake slices and milk ice creams.

Smoothies, Coffee, Tea and Ades are all on their handwritten Korean Menu.

A must-try here is the Jolly-pong smoothie, a Koreanized version of cereal milk. Jolly Pong, a sweet Korean wheat-puff snack, is soaked and blending with local milk and then topped off with crunchy Pong and an adorable little bear or frog spoon (4,500W).
