Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae, SeoulMay 08, 2015
When I was in Seoul, one place that I really remembered and wanted to go is Hello Kitty Cafe in Hongdae. I am not a fan of Hello Kitty but I think this place is interesting to visit XD Also I would visit Hongdae after all because it's one of my favorites area in Seoul due to its ambience. They have many interesting and hit cafes, including the only Hello Kitty Cafe in South Korea! :D
3 years ago when I visited this place as well, the cafe was a lot smaller. At the moment they have their own garden and it becomes very spacious, including adding some rooms and shop
If you don't know how to go there, you can always have GPS help ^^
As for me, I didnt have internet on my phone when I was in Korea but there was a map and a tourist help center so you can opt for that too
It is hard to miss this kind of house in Seoul
Upon entering, you will be greeted by this giant Hello Kitty doll [as big as me]
Here are the menu and price list :
The price is slightly more expensive than normal cafes but hey, this is thematic cafe so prepare yourself ^^;
Their wifi code LOL
Even the packaging box for take away is supaaa cute
They put on display for some of their seasonal beverages!
Who wants your name card like this? ^^
After ordered the drink, we took a sit inside it and breathless because wherever you see, it's all pink lol
We ordered only one drink because after this we would have dinner again, and I heard that the drinks and foods at Hello Kitty Cafe is bad. I had Strawberry Latte and turned out the drink is fine, tasty in fact for me! The sweetness is not overpowering and the cream is light and fresh!! ^^
I would love to have another drink with different flavour!
We also wandered to the second floor where it's all decorated in pink for sure. The seats, tables, and decoration on each area is different :D
The one that I got excited the most is the Hello Kitty Room!!!
Who wants to sleep here?
Unfortunately during my visit, I only brought my 35mm fixed lens camera hence taking wide angle shot is impossible! T_T However I hope that the post would spread smile and happiness to the one reading it, and you'll be able to have some idea how it looks like there!
I really recommend you to wonder around Hongdae area too, not only Hello Kitty Cafe. They have a lot of nice restaurants and cafes, and the price is not that bad as it's near University. The area is different than Myeongdong who is very touristy, in here you can see a lot of real Korean students spend their time and also some street musicians performed on the street
Hopefully you enjoy the post ^^
See you guys on my next post!
