It's Week 3 for me in Seoul (even though it still occasionally feels like I arrived yesterday) and I would like to share my first impressions of Seoul during my first week in the megacity...
Charcoal Coffee Shop
In a surprising twist, I found Charcoal within that 2-min walk to the subway station. After watching a video by Mira's Garden, a Hong Kong YouTuber living in Seoul, I discovered a coffee shop near Ewha that serves Hong Kong street food. Walking in, I was greeted with placards of various HK neighborhoods and miniatures of the KMB double deckers. While their Hong Kong-styled foods are more expensive than those in Hong Kong, this cafe has managed to recreate the Hong Kong milk tea! It truly felt like I found a taste of home away from home.
In my future posts, I'll try to make each blog update thematic to give meaning and significance to the places I will visit and the experiences that I will have. However, also expect tons of photos of delicious Korean cuisine and Koreanized foods of Western cuisines. Thank you for following my 3.5 month long journey in South Korea!
