My husband and I had some time to kill before leaving for the airport so we stopped in. We got a couple beers which were good. We thought about ordering food, but it was too expensive for us. Soup was $15.

Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
