korean restaurant / This road is as lively as your first love, Yangjaecheon Cafe Street – 182

The weather also has a smell. At the beginning of winter, I felt the cold and bitter smell of winter when I had just left the house. It's still chilly in the morning and evening, but since winter is completely over, the outside air doesn't smell like winter at all. Seeing the trees on the side of the road working hard to produce flower buds, I think spring has come. Even just hearing the name of Spring made my heart tickle. There is a lively, spring-like space in one corner of Seoul. The social media taste connoisseurs confidently recommend Yangjaecheon Café Street, which is a little slower and made by a group of more sentimental people. Let's spend a private time with your loved ones on this path that will be memorable in your memory.

1. 'Emcomm Macaroon', a place with a passion for macaroons (link)

Yangjaecheon, a river connecting Seocho-gu and Gangnam-gu, has a well-maintained promenade, making it a great place to walk in the sun during the day. If you walk through Yangjaecheon and walk one block into the alley next to the river, you'll find Emcom macaroons with a modern exterior. The pink interior, which has the feel of a macaroon, and cute accessories complete a space that captivates women's hearts. It is run by patissier Kim So-yeon, who studied and worked in France, and makes macaroons using 100% almond powder without using wheat flour. Macaroons of various colors and flavors, such as vanilla, earl gray, caramel, chocolate, and green tea, are not very sweet and have a luxurious flavor. The biggest advantage of Emcom macaroons is that when you order all drinks, you get one macaroon as a service!

2. Just the right temperature “Quicong 82”

This is the first French restaurant named after Chef Kim Young-won, who has a career in famous restaurants in Seoul, such as the popular restaurant Jeongdang. This place, which stands out for its casual interior, is a place that offers French cuisine without being heavy. There are no separate courses, and there are various à la carte dishes. A spread made using eggplant or salmon is served along with the aperitif, and the delicacy of eating a dish with the aperitif alone stands out. You can enjoy a variety of French dishes at reasonable prices, such as soft flounder with olive oil, arugula, pompidou center with basil (35,000 won), and Provencal-style mussel stew with tomato and saffron (18,000 won). I also recommend making your own course meal by combining various dishes.

3. Cafe “Dal Kong” with commas

Cafe Dal Kong has an impressive gallery-like atmosphere. The white interior creates a modern yet sentimental atmosphere. When you enter the room, cute accessories and tables that are comfortably arranged in a studio-like atmosphere add to the relaxing atmosphere. There is also a light lunch menu, and the honeybread is delicious, but above all, it boasts a coffee flavor that has been recognized by coffee enthusiasts. Hot chocolate mixed with Valrhona chocolate is also popular.

4. Let's go to a popular cafe with our dog “Second Breath”

Yangjaecheon Promenade is a place where nearby office workers and residents living in nearby Dogok-dong and Yangjae-dong often go for a walk. Residents also go out for a walk with their dogs, and Second Breath is famous as a cafe where dogs can enter. They offer cheap drinks between 4,000 won and 5,000 won, and serve tarts, cakes, etc. from Rose Bakery, an organic bakery headquartered in Paris. Lungo, which is heavier and thicker than Americano, is offered as a basis. Second Breath not only sells drinks, but also sells a variety of daily necessities. From attractive Azumaya bowls with a unique, mysterious blue color to skincare products from John Masters Organic. It's named after a cafe, but rather than a cafe, it has the unique feel of a place where you can relax and go shopping.

5. “Kitchen 98” showcases fusion Korean cuisine (link)

Since a few years ago, Korean food based restaurants have sprung up one by one in Seoul and developed into a large-scale Korean buffet, and their popularity has increased even more. Kitchen 98 is also a place that offers fusion cuisine based on Korean food, and it's been about 3 years since it settled here in Yangjae-dong. The motto of this place is the food my mom gave me, and they make every menu without adding a gram of seasoning. It is famous for its sea bream bibimbap (9,500 won), grilled pork with pepper paste, and rice balls (25,000 won). You can also order a combination of salad, pasta, and meat dishes as a course meal. Parking is a bit inconvenient, so it's a good idea to check it out when you visit.
