If you checked out our first cafe and restaurants’ installment here in Dinoseoul x Trazy‘s travel collaboration, you’ll be happy to know that we have Part II for you! Here’s what to bookmark if you’re visiting Korea:

1. Cafe Soo

This might be a little out of the way in Gwangju (especially if you’re coming from central Seoul), but it’s worth it if you’re paying the area a visit. As compared to other cafes or coffee joints in Seoul, this is much more affordable! You can get a latte at 2,500 or a smoothie at 3,000 here. Expect to pay double elsewhere.

2. KAMONG Café

We take our hats off to the sister of EXO-K‘s Kai for naming KAMONG Café after her brother and his pet dog, Monggu. Unlike other celebrity-affiliated places, this doesn’t have Kai’s mug plastered all over the walls. Instead, it’s modern and and simplistic, with a bit of an arty vibe. Kai himself very thoughtfully opened this place for his sister, so do give it your utmost support! Prices are a little steep (waffles range from ₩8,000 – ₩12,000), but we say it’s worth it for the ambiance.
