Lately, it seems like celebrities have caught the travel bug. Some flew off to Italy and others visited Japan. Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff are no exception as they took a last minute trip to Seoul, Korea a few days before their wedding. (Wink!)
With just two days there, they explored food spots suggested by Erwan while Anne was on the hunt for locations featured in Korean dramas. For those planning a quick trip to Seoul, check out these spots for a mix of food, shopping, and photo opportunities.
Their first stop was the coffee shop where The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince was shot. It’s a quaint space with photos and paintings on the walls. You also have the option to dine outside when it isn’t too cold.
The first restaurant they went to was Yookssam Naengmyeon. Here they ordered cold spicy buckwheat noodles. The Mul Naengmeon set comes with noodles, cucumber, pickled daikon, and a hard boiled egg, served in a cold soup. Meat lovers can also order their charcoal grilled pork that is marinated and thinly sliced.
Anne was very eager to find a graffiti tunnel from the K-drama Goblin. She explains the importance of this place to Erwan by talking about a scene from the show. This is a good spot to visit if you need a backdrop for your photos and videos.
The next K-drama place they visited was Plate B, which is the pie and tart shop in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. It is a cafe and dessert spot where you can order salads, coffee, and of course, walnut pie.
Located in the Gangnam-gu area of Seoul, Anne and Erwan had dinner in Mingles. Here, they serve beautifully plated set meals. Their dinner course menu consists of lamb, Korean beef, fish, and vegetables.
To cap off their short trip to Seoul, the couple went to Stylenanda. It is a shop that mixes fashion, beauty, and a cafe all into one building. They ordered coffee served with cotton candy and grabbed a spot outside where they laid on oversized pink cushions under pink umbrellas.
