Eating or drinking solo, dubbed in Korean as honbap and honsul respectively, is becoming more common in Korea. To keep up with the trend, an increasing number of restaurants and bars in Seoul are designed in a way to allow solo customers to enjoy their personal time to the fullest. If you are planning to travel solo, read on for our top six recommended places to give yourself a treat!
Downtowner is a popular burger place that was featured in Korea’s food television show “Wednesday Food Talk.” Its signature burger is the avocado burger. The colorful juicy burgers look even more scrumptious in their black and white striped wrapping paper, served stuffed in a rectangular box.
Toasty buns, fresh vegetables, and the plump, juicy patty create a perfectly balanced harmony of flavors together with the smooth taste of avocado slices. It’s recommended to visit when you’re not in a rush as you may have to wait in line due to the restaurant’s popularity.
