some of my favorite things...


amazing hand drip coffee at 'cafe may' in garosugil

For my readers out there, you may have noticed that I have so many 'favorite' spots around Seoul...but I wanted to blog about a few spots that are truly dear to me, and love taking my close friends to! I was tempted 'not' to blog about this for a while...but oh what the heck! Sharing is caring :) This is to my fans out there...perhaps I'll bump into you at these spots one day!

customers can pin their point cards on the wall, and just use it again next time!

My friend is opening a place in Garosugil, soft opening this week. And after I opened this comment field, I realized I can't tell you how to get there because I don't know Garosugil that well. Maybe it's because I drank too many martini's at the Grey Goose pop up store. I also can't remember the name since the sign wasn't up yet.

I can tell you that it looks nice and it was by the pizza place that also has a unit by Kyungnidon.

I'll go this week and find out.

Love your blog.

Turn off the main drag at Cafe d'Art; it's right on the corner of the five way intersection, across the street from Pizzarium.

Opened yesterday and it's called "Mattia".

Italian food, small plates like tapas, cocktails and beer, priced reasonable for the neighborhood. Not too big or small, seats forty.

Still love your blog
