A pleasant wind whirling in the sky and at the tip of the nose signals the arrival of spring. The leaves that sprout brightly and the flower bulbs that are preparing to come out into the world begin to form one by one, bringing the excitement of spring. As the spring weather is just around the corner, couples are busy looking for places to date. In addition to the taste of the food, we will introduce places known for their atmosphere, which are known for their unique interiors that cannot be easily found anywhere else. From casual dining where you can enjoy a quiet atmosphere and taste on a forest path in the center of the city, to a shabu-shabu restaurant full of exotic atmosphere as if you had traveled abroad, to a bar where you can enjoy a cocktail under dim lighting! Let's go on a spring date to a place full of romantic sensibility.

“Olot” is a casual dining and izakaya where you can enjoy food prepared by chefs from the hotel at a reasonable price in pure Korean for “everything without shortage.” The interior ceiling, which makes use of the rafters of a hanok, and the view of Gyeonguisun Forest Path that extends beyond the window add a cozy sensibility. For lunch, they sell rice bowls such as “kaisendon,” which is topped with a variety of seasonal seafood on top of rice, and “steak dong,” which has Korean beef sirloin fillets piled up on top of each other, and in the evening, they sell dishes and meals from sashimi, a seasonal platter that goes well with a cup of sake, to grilled, fried food, and nabe. “Korean-style motsunabe,” which is made by adding well-prepared and aged skewers and sirloin, and “abalone cream pasta,” which makes use of the savory and rich flavor of abalone entrails, are popular as dinner menus.

As soon as it opened, I went to sit by the window when there were no people, and the background was great for taking pictures, and I got a shot of my life. ^_^ I liked the atmosphere and food, so I'll come back for dinner next time!

In Soje-dong, Daejeon, a “hot spring house” that was popular for its hot spring concept has opened a new one in Ikseon-dong. When you walk inside through a white gravel path, the steaming hot springs and burning firewood fires create an exotic atmosphere. The signature menu, “Miso Shabu-shabu for 1 Person,” is a miso beef bone broth where ingredients such as beef and vegetables are cooked on the spot, then dipped thoroughly in a raw egg and eaten. The shabu-shabu ingredients that are piled up in layers in a bento are provided in a basic configuration of up to 3 tiers, each containing marbled meat, vegetables, and sauce, and a 4-tier seafood platter can be added at an additional cost.

â–²Review (Chiahime Shikigami): A hot spring house that became a hot spot in Ikseon-dong with its appearance! There's no fun waiting on the weekend, so it was nice to be on time for the opening. In addition to the plating that looks like a bento box, the interior concept of the store is unique, so I think people who like taking pictures will be satisfied.

“The Groom Rooftop” is the second space of the Italian restaurant “The Table Kitchen” in Itaewon. It's a cafe where you can enjoy a leisurely brunch during the day, and it operates directly where you can drink wine in an atmosphere in the evening. It is loved by many on social media because of the dainty, cloud-shaped decorations that hang all over the store. The signature brunch menu is “brown toast,” a croissant filled with eggs, bacon, corn, and shower cream. The combination of bacon and the syrup underneath the toast gives a sweet and salty flavor, and the corn kernels pop and add a chewy texture. There are about 25 types of wine available, from natural to rosé, white, red, and glass, so it's a great place to choose and enjoy.

â–²Location: 4th floor, 208, Itaewon-ro, Yongsan-gu, Seoul

▲Opening hours: 11:00 — 01:00 every day, Friday and Saturday 11:00 — 03:00, closed on Mondays

â–²Price: Brown toast 15,000 won, brown gnocchi 22,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Sniper): The cloud picture on the signboard was so cute, but I almost fell in love with the atmosphere as soon as I entered the store. I went on a date in the evening, and even the wine glasses were so cute. I ate gnocchi and mushroom dishes as wine snacks, and the taste comes back to mind when I get home..!

4. 'Room Service 301' in Dogok-dong, Seoul, where you can feel the beauty of the seasons

“Room Service 301” evokes the illusion that you have left the city center and come to another world the moment you open the door. The window in the center of the store captures the seasonal scenery, from the fresh leaves of spring and summer to the colorful autumn leaves in the fall and the pure white snowscapes of winter. The characteristic is that when you order drinks and desserts, they give you a welcome drink using yuzu. The signature menu, “Matcha Latte,” catches the eye with rich matcha spreading over milk. The sweet and bitter flavor that comes from the combination of bitter matcha and soft milk is excellent. They also have a variety of pound cakes that go well with drinks, such as lemon pistachio, caramel, and carrot cream.

â–²Location: 193 Yangjaecheon-ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 13:00 to 20:00 on weekdays, 12:00 to 21:00 on weekends, closed on Mondays

â–²Price: Matcha latte 6,000 won, lemon pistachio 8,000 won

â–²Review (Shikigami Pororiya): This is a perfect course to see cherry blossoms in Yangjaecheon in spring and stop by a cafe. The window seat with a view of the trees was also very pretty, and when I went inside, the gallery-like space was also very nice. If you go up one level, there's also a rooftop, but if the weather gets better, I'll go back to see the rooftop again!

5. Have a cocktail in a luxurious atmosphere, 'Bar da Vinci, Bangi-d', Seoul

“Bar da Vinci” has a luxurious feel with colorful chandeliers in the twilight lights and a display case that emits soft lights. It boasts a diverse menu, from various alcoholic beverages such as wine, cocktails, champagne, whiskey, and brandy to snack menus such as pasta, steak, gambas, and cheese plates. Signature cocktails using recipes unique to this place are also available, and my favorites are “Mona Lisa,” which combines a sour strawberry flavor with a subtle rose flavor, and “Narchi Sauce,” which contains the soft and rich flavors of cream and hazelnuts on a rum base. In the case of cocktails, you can also order a menu made on the spot according to your preferences.

â–²Location: B1F, 11 Olympic-ro 32-gil, Songpa-gu, Seoul

▲Opening hours: 19:00 — 03:00 every day

â–²Price: Mona Lisa 18,000 won, Narcissus 18,000 won

â–²Testimonial (Be sure to wear makeup): I found this place by chance when I was looking for a place for a year-end party, but I liked it so much that I often go there for dates and hanging out with friends. The cocktail's plating also comes out pretty, and the visuals make you take a certified shot.
