Hongdae Hotspots: The Beastro

by Joe McPherson
Korea Tourism Organization

Think American classics in fresh new clothes. Located right next to the playground, The Beastro plays with its food. Chimichurri fries find a place next to Buffalo mac ‘n’ cheese (Buffalo chicken astride bubbling macaroni and cheese). Southern fried chicken with mashed potatoes makes a strong appearance. Their must-get dish, however, is the 24-hour hanger steak with potatoes cooked in beef fat. Expect an intense beefy punch in the mouth. If that isn’t enough comfort food to make one sleep for a week, finish with their cookies & milk – brown butter chocolate cookies with a rich drinking chocolate.

  • Hongik Univ. Station 홍대입구역 (Line 2, Gyeongui Line & AREX), Exit 9. Get to the main entrance of Hongdae, find The Body Shop, and The Beastro is two stores away.
