The Royal Food and Drink appeared high up in the hills of haebangchon earlier this month and has already proved itself worth the walk. Just a stone’s throw from Namsan mountain, locals will be glad to know that Bomi from the now defunct DeEsspresso Room has had a hand in The Royal. Serving a well rounded breakfast lineup that bounces between bagels, salads, and big servings like the farmers breakfast, the menu then drifts seamlessly into brunch and then dinner. Standouts include the Jalapeño popper dip, which pairs perfectly with fellow noteworthy menu item, the pineapple margarita.
