I didn’t believe my sister when she told me a melting pot of cultures could be found in Itaewon. Tourists, foreigners, young adults and more filled the neighborhood’s busy streets. Flags from different countries waved above roads.
We stopped first at Gelati Gelati, an ice cream shop with a unique flavor I deemed a must-try: rice. It tasted similarly to a sugary bowl of carbs, but I also paired with with green tea, which added a nice taste of matcha.
We popped into Anthracite, a coffee shop similar to BAT in that it felt like a unique community space rather than a place to grab a cup of joe. We walked by the entrance to UNDERSTAGE by Hyundai Card where a small area beamed purple lights on furniture. We entered the VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card store where a mixture of Korean and American music filled the establishment.
