Seoul: Garosu-gil in Sinsa-dong

I've heard/read alot about Garosu-gil prior to my trip so I was kinda excited to check this place out!

We reached here pretty late though, the sleepy head us just couldn't drag ourselves up. The rainy weather wasn't helping at all too, it was just such a cuddly weather! In the end, only Stef, Jas and I managed to leave the house. Karx and Van decided to spend the day lazing at home~ Lol

It's a pity we didn't get to try as much cafes as we wanted to! We were craving more for real-food than desserts~

Garosu-gil feels like a little European town in Seoul!

We came across this 'orange tent korean bbq' while walking back to the train station and scenes from Korean dramas flashed by Jas and I again! Lol and it's super crowded too, packed with lots of locals! 
Yknow "Travel like a local".. so we decided to give this place a try!

The food was cheap and good!
It was like less than $10 per person for Korean BBQ!!

Lol I really don't understand how Jasmine can maintain her poker face??

For the cafe hoppers, Garosu-gil is a place not to be missed if you're in Seoul!

Subway Line 3, alight at Sinsa Station. Exit 8.

  1. Shenny Yang! Garosu-gil is a wonderful part of South Korea. Garosu-gil is a Korean word and its meaning is tree lined streets. This place is surrounded by gingko trees. It is famous for its design book shops, bars, cafes, boutiques, galleries and restaurants. It has homely cafes and restaurants. They provide delicious food and deserts. I visited this place after completing mine hawaii tours. I really like Garosu-gil just because of its natural beauty and cozy restaurants.
