2. Gongi Hannam

Gongi : 공기(@gongi.seoul)님의 공유 게시물님,

“Gongi” is a Korean word with dual meanings; it means both a bowl and air. As the name suggests, Gongi strips down Korean food, based on a bowl of rice, to its basic, pure form—like air. It takes out unnecessary spices and additives, unfitting fusion elements, to present a purely Korean experience. Their beautifully minimal and natural interior design also also reflects the core of their food philosophy. Focused on quality ingredients and simple yet rich flavors, Gongi is a must-visit restaurant in Hannam.

올드페리도넛(@oldferrydonut)님의 공유 게시물님,

This Instagrammer’s favorite, Old Ferry Donut, is a must if you’re in the area. The simple interior, subtly decorated with traditional Korean folk art, creates a strange harmony with their decadent, almost kitschy doughnuts. It also creates an interesting mix of Asian and Western elements for you to ponder over. Interesting thoughts aside, the cartoon-like doughnuts make this place definitely one of the most instagrammable places in Hannnam. Order their classic Tube Latte, but a quick tip–make sure to snap a photo quickly before the doughnut sinks to the bottom!

Named after the famous quote from The Little Prince, On Ne Sait Jamais roughly translates into “you never know.” Built with the idea of a traditional Korean sauna, this place reminds locals of the saunas they went to as a kid with their parents. But this place isn’t a sauna – it’s a minimalist, rustic cafe with a mouthwatering cake selection. This cafe also frequently hosts art exhibitions and events, so you might be able to attend them if you’re lucky!

If LA has The Pink Wall, Seoul has One in a Million. Its pastel-pink wall at the entrance is a popular photo spot for locals and tourists alike. The white interior with pink accents and the plants placed all around the cafe, not only makes it a good photo spot but also makes is a wonderful place to relax. Food-wise, you can order their marble chocolate cheesecake or carrot cake, if you want a foolproof option. Try their classic Americano or a cup of hot latte to go perfectly with the cakes.
