Miss Lee Cafe lies in the heart of 'Dae Hak No' (대학로) near Seoul University campus, and also known as the theatre district of Seoul. For decades, students and artists would flock to this area to watch everything from short plays led by university students, to mainstream musicals and comedy shows.
This cafe's concept is to 'take you back...way back', when school lunches were in little metal bento box like containers (aka 'do shi rak'). Their selection of vintage candy selection is a hard find elsewhere. Other favored items include the Korean dessert favorite-'pat bing soo' (shaved ice with red beans, fruits, rice cakes, ice cream), among other sweet eats.
To be honest, the food wasn't to write home about. The Kimchi fried rice was tasty, but can't beat Sarah's recipe:) However, it's the nostalgia of the good old school days in Korea, that can be shared with generations thereafter.
You'll leave with the memories...
