[Sinsa-dong Garosu-gil] Bad Farmers 배드파머스: Healthy Food Bowl

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I think I have said many many times that coming to Korea is to enjoy all kind of food because, Korea served really great food from Pasta, Dessert (be it korean style or japanese style), Chinese food, Japanese etc etc. And I’m going to share with you something you will need after a long stay in Korea – Salad. Remember the last time I visited March Rabbit? It’s so good to have something light to eat after crazy food intake during your Korea trip. Bad Farmers food photo captivate my heart first follow by this little red house along Garosu-gil. It’s always special that Korea have so many ideas in having their cafe unique and different from the rest next to them.

Line Friends Store at Garosu-gil, Sinsa

!!! There’s another Line flagship store in Itaewon, read more about here!

While, you might be using the LINE app to call your friends from other side of the world, exchanging messages and sharing photos. There’s one store in garosu-gil sharing the equal amount excitement as you do, and maybe more….. – Line Friends Store! I’m a Line user, and basically playing their games , buying their stickers and so, you get what I mean when i say – I AM EXCITED!!! :)

Line Friends store at Garosu-gil is not just a store, but also a themed cafe too! Basically, going crazy in the store. I wanted to get everything, but I didn’t actually, not sure why, but Im sure the next trip I’m going to get something out from the store! Sadly, I think I missed out 1 of the level hahaha! Oops! Probably I was concentrating more on the cafe side that day more than others… Meanwhile, humble entry for this :/

HAHA! See, I told you all, Koreans are really kind than you can imagine. He gave me 1 brown 1 sally! Yeah! :) And, brown macaron are sold out, so we bought 2 sally instead :) Its REALLY NICE! nomnom.

Momo Cot @ Garosu-gil

Winter trip was awesome, because the weather and environment seems to be really romantic. The christmas deco, the gloomy weather, everything seems to be light in the dark that gives a little bit of the romantic atmosphere. Its my first time travelling in December so everything seems to be really excited for me. Despite being in korea 5 times (at that point of time), I have yet been to the most popular place in Korea – Garosu-gil. I remembered we wanted to visit there in march? but we were too tight with schedule and decided to go another time. Don’t ask me why because I have no idea why we have 39 days and its still too tight hahahaha!!

So, we headed over to Garosu-gil for the first time, a pretty street full of cafes and street labels. The weather was so cold, but everything else made up for it. I really love winter, I love spring too. Everything that is not summer is great :) We didn’t plan any particular cafe to visit, and momo cot give us more than 1 reason why we should choose them.

 It’s freezing cold that winter.
But we braved through the coldness and have this.
It’s pretty awesome to eat the ice cream when the weather is so cold.
You need not worry about the melting issue :)

I was holding the ice cream on my left hand and insist not change hand.
You just wish to sacrifice 1 hand and at least another still feeling warm :p

It’s my first time eating godiva product, and Im loving it.
Its really quality chocolate ;)

it’s almost a year.

Banana Tree in Sinsa : Flower Pot Dessert (바나나 트리)

바나나 트리 Banana Tree at Sinsa

Remember how much I love Cafe hopping in Korea (Australia & Singapore) as well, this summer trip, we included quite a fair bit of cafe visit but due to the time limit, we only managed to go for a few one :( but, we manged to visit the one we really wanted – Banana Tree. And we were happy with the dessert :D

This cafe is quite a surprise because they are actually located quite off the subway so ‘maybe’ not many people knew about it. It’s petite and cosy cafe, handling by young ladies (during my visit). How I wish, I could have a cafe like this too. A pity that, Cin can’t join us but we promised to visit together next time :)
