1. Tofu factory transformed into an atmospheric cafe, 'Brancusi' in Yongmun-dong
âBrancusiâ is a cafe in Yongmun-dong that has an impressive green gate. The clear glass ceiling, the interior of a renovated tofu factory, the metalwork studio on one side, and vintage desks and chairs combine nicely to create a unique atmosphere. They make their own desserts that can be eaten with coffee, and their caneles, which are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, are popular. The âBasil Tomato Pizzaâ made from homegrown basil, which goes great with beer, is also popular. If you go through the inside door of the store, you can also see the terrace through the garden, so be sure to check it out.

2. Chuncheon 'Positives', a place that makes you rethink the uniqueness of everyday life
Chuncheon 'Positives' is a cafe that reminds me of memories of my grandmother's house when I had fun playing as a child because it was a pity that the years passed and the space touched by people disappeared. The walnut trees standing tall in the middle of the yard and the plants scattered all over the place create a relaxing atmosphere. Positives creates a seasonal menu with crops from their own farm, and their most popular menu is the sweet and aromatic âpeach juiceâ that is only available in summer. It operates as a cafe during the day and turns into a small rental house at night, so if you're planning a trip to Chuncheon, you might consider staying at Positives.

âEspresso Boutiqueâ in Yeonnam-dong is a new cafe that is popular among coffee enthusiasts because it sells various types of beans. Even during its opening, social media was buzzing with a classy and sophisticated atmosphere, and is currently proving the popularity of waiting and full seats with even greater recognition. House music is played in the DJ booth on one side to heighten the atmosphere, and the coffee carefully brewed by the barista is excellent in both aroma and taste. âFlat White,â which has a particularly savory flavor, is a popular menu sought after by many people due to its moderate acidity and flavor.
â²Location: 566-60 Yeonnam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul â²Business hours: 12:00 to 22:00 every day, closed on Sundays â²Price: Coffee 5,000 won to 6,500 won (depending on the beans), flat white 5,500 won â²Review (Dim, hip-hop girl): Flat White is really a complaint!

4. A dining pub specializing in Mexican fajitas, Seomyeon 'Lee Bum Nam's Grill'
The dining pub âLee Baek Nam's Grillâ, located in Seomyeon, specializes in Mexican cuisine that just opened. The store, which is slightly dark but decorated with neon signs with witty phrases, has a unique atmosphere. The restaurant's most popular menu is âLee Baek Nam's grilled fajita,â which is a Mexican food where grilled sirloin steak, ribs, shrimp, deli pork, and carnitas are wrapped in a tortilla. The onion underneath the meat adds umami, and since all of the tortillas and various sauces can be refilled as much as you want, you can enjoy the dish without any shortage. Since it's a dining pub, it's a good idea to serve it with a cool beer that's available.

The most popular menu item is âIberico steak,â which is made by adding apple sauce to black pork, one of the world's top four delicacies. âSpicy seafood oil pasta,â which has a homemade soup, is also good to eat with steak. âHandmade gnocchi,â an Italian-style homemade beer made by hand kneading it every day, is particularly popular among women. The chewy gnocchi made by kneading potatoes with powdery bechamel sauce is perfect for enhancing the taste of chilly autumn days. Be aware that food may run out due to large gaps between tables.

The colorful cloth hanging from the ceiling creates a dreamy feeling along with the lighting. A variety of alcoholic beverages are available, from wine and beer to vodka and champagne, so you can enjoy it according to your own preferences. A popular snack is âgrilled lean meat with oblon,â which is served with garnishes such as pineapple and corn, and is initially served as a rare snack, but you can grill it little by little in a hot pan.

âDope Coffeeâ located in Yangpyeong is a hot new cafe that was officially opened less than a week ago. This quiet place, which is slightly away from downtown Seoul, has a grand yet accentuated interior with calm black tones and blue-toned items scattered all over the place. Unlike other cafes in Seoul, Doff Coffee, which boasts a spacious space, has an open feeling, and the 2nd floor has natural light, so you can feel both luxurious and warm. Also, thanks to roasting directly through a roaster located on one side of the store, the aroma that spreads softly in the mouth the moment you drink coffee is excellent.

8. âLa Eskinaâ cod where you can eat a hearty meal
âLa Eskinaâ, located in Samdeok-dong, Daegu, offers a variety of menus from Korean to Western food. The eight exquisite side dishes that come with the main menu all have a hearty and clean look and taste as if they had come from home. The signature dish, La Eskina's pork cutlet, goes better with salt than pork cutlet sauce because the thin, crispy batter wraps around the thick meat. Also, keep in mind that kimchi stew can be ordered from pork, beef, or tuna. A variety of other menus are also available, such as chicken oyster and double cheeseburger.
â²Location: 1F, 106, Dongdeok-ro 30-gil, Jung-gu, Daegu â²Opening hours: 12:30 â 02:00, (break time 15:30 ~ 17:30) â²Price range: 8,000 won, pork cutlet, 11,000 won, kitchen oyster, 13,000 won â²Review (Twinkle Twinkle Twinkle, Shikigin): Tastes like a home-cooked meal!

9. âMontauk Cafe & Highball Bar (Montauk Cafe & Highball Bar)â in Apgujeong, where you can relax like a beach in Montauk
It's a bar (bar) created after the beautiful city âMontauk,â which is the setting for the movie Eternal Sunshine, and was created with the desire for tired people to relax and enjoy a cup of highball or coffee. The signature menu here is a highball sampler, where you can enjoy various flavors of beer as a sampler, a highball is also a menu developed so that you can drink highball according to the amount of carbonated water or the type of whiskey. Even those who are new to highball can enjoy it while getting to know their own style, so I recommend it. The interior is dimly lit, so you can relax more without worrying about other people's gaze.

10. 'City Day' in Daegu, a healing place in a deserted city
The green âCity Dayâ with its chairs, napkins, and even food in a city full of asphalt is drawing people's attention to a restaurant located in Daebong-dong, Daegu. The most popular item on the city's daytime menu is âspinach cream pasta,â which has a somewhat unique green color reminiscent of Shrek. You can enjoy a heavier and richer flavor by mixing spinach into the soft cream sauce. The large meat and mushrooms contained in spinach pasta provide a chewy flavor and satisfy the texture. The âmeatball mozzarella tomato pastaâ recommended by the staff is also one of the popular dishes, and the wide noodles combine round meatballs with spicy tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese to appeal to the palate.
