Itaewon Cafe: Parched Seoul

During the Korean Thanksgiving holidays, almost every cafe in Seoul were closed but a friend and I managed to visit a few which were still open. One of them is Parched Seoul in Itaewon. I reckon Itaewon is a good place to visit during any major Korean holidays because it's the 'international' area which is likely to stay open for foreigners in Seoul.

What I liked about this cafe is that by looking at the exterior, you would never know this is a cafe. It is nested in a residential area, in fact the facade looks like somebody's home too. Once you step in, it's like entering someone's home. The ordering and barista counter is small and informal, with a variety of seats settings indoors.

After coffee, we explored the quaint little neighbourhood before making our way to the main Itaewon area, and then to Hannam-dong, the more hipster and somewhat more indie part of Itaewon well known for its cafe and little shops.

As the world continues to grow more open and as the sharing economy becomes evermore prevalent, we can expect to see great trends being set by Seoul and its people.
