Yangbo: From the garden to your table
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!
For a nutritious but delicious meal, visit Yangbo. Yangbo serves food made with fresh vegetables personally grown in the restaurant’s garden. Its signature menus are pork cutlet with omelet soufflé and Hamburg steak. Kkagdugi (diced radish kimchi) served on the side enhances the flavors of these savory menus with its spicy yet refreshing taste.
You will be pleased even before you take a bite as the food here is presented adorably with an artistic touch, thanks to the owner’s talent as a food stylist. The desserts are also unique, like the grilled butter banana, cosmos tea, and lotus tea. After a satisfying meal, take some time to look around the attractions nearby, such as Seodamun Museum of Natural History, or walk along the Ansan Jarak-gil Trail.
