(I think I'm clever and that is all that matters.)
Maybe she wasn't singing, maybe she was freezing.
Either way we bundled up and head out to the Hondage area for a little Mother/Daughter fun!
I've read about this place for years and really couldn't wait to go to the Hello Kitty Café. (Girl just came along for the ride. She is a good daughter.) Not that I am a huge Hello Kitty fan, but because it is a HELLO KITTY CAFE. I mean Hello Kitty, whose real name is Kitty White was 'born' in Japan in 1974 and she is going stronger than ever here in Korea. Not only are there 4 or 5 Hello Kitty Cafés here in the Seoul area, but you can find Hello Kitty on everything! Pens, pencils, erasers, backpacks, purses, clothes, mugs, key chains phone covers, and just about anything else you can imagine! I had to see what was so fantastic about the Hello Kitty Café. The entrance is cute enough.
I was expecting a 'sit down' dining experience.
The Hello Kitty Café is more of a 'coffee shop'.
You enter and the counter is right in front of you.
You place your order at the counter.
They were out of all the super cute Hello Kitty cakes I had read so much about. They young lady behind the counter said you have to come early to get the cakes, even though the store had only been open for 2 hours when we arrived.
Girl and I just ordered hot chocolate and coffee.
The Hello Kitty décor was cute and everywhere.
How cute are these drinks?!
She was correct. Warm chocolate and coffee.
Prices were pretty average for Seoul.
They deliver on Hello Kitty.
If you have a little girl that loves Hello Kitty, she will LOVE this place.
It took a long time to get our drinks.
Drinks were warm, not hot.
Restaurant was dirty.
They were out of Hello Kitty cakes 2 hours after opening.
I can now say I have been there, done that and don't feel the need to every do it again.
Next up, "Cats Living Here" café!
I forgot she had never been to a cat cafe....remember her birthday?
Cat Living was about the same as the Cat Cafe in Myeongdong - 8,000 won for me, 7,000 won for Girl. Plus you get a FREE drink - more coffee and hot chocolate :o)
Thanks Nature Café
No REALLY that is the name of this place.
Thanks Nature Café.
This place is a SHEEP CAFE.
Sheep, as in bahhh, bahhh....
Are you as shocked as I am?
You should be.
The sheep were super nice.
Of course girl now wants one as a pet.
This girl did not get the memo that it is the middle of WINTER!! Temps are in the 20's! Hello. You know she was freezing.
We really thought his pink boots were a nice touch.
To get to Thanks Natural Café - continue on the street with Taco Bell and Starbucks. Cross over to the left side of the street. You will see a long shopping center with 2 floors. Thanks Nature Café is on the far end bottom corner.
