Samcheongdong is the place to be. A magical place where the old meets the new, a microcosm of art, fashion, Korean culture, history and political power paired with boutique style shops and delicious and international cuisine.
A must- go- visit destination while being in Korea!
1). ogada Korean Tea & time tea house (have monitors in their tea tables to browse the web),
-> I had spicy ginger and orange peel tea
-> they serve egg biscuits as well (that is one of their best sellers)
2) flora Italian restaurant
House wine is amazing for 6$
Prepared the pizza right in front of us (Flower pedals on pizza)
There are two of them in the area. We preferred the one closest to the president’s residence park entrance
Address: seoul, Jongno-gu, Hwa-dong 138-14
3) must go and see and taste is romanee conti wine bar
This wine bar offers a long list of fine and interesting wines.
Who could say no to a glass of French wine in an old hanok (traditional Korean house)
I also heard great things about an Italian restaurant called 8 steps
Organic restaurant: Suji Kim
how to get there by train: get off either at Anguk station or at Gyeongbok-gung
by car: 58-1 Hwa-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea -> punch that into the GPS and it should take you to a paid parking lot (I think)
