[Travel] #CaféSeries 17 – Carin Hongdae Lounge + Café

by - Friday, March 01, 2019

On mid-January 2019, I get the chance to travel back to Seoul, Korea with my mom. It can say this trip for the shopping trip to both of us. During this trip, I take a chance to visit the Carin Hongdae Lounge + Café, which located at the Hongdae, Seoul. The funny things, we're just walking around the Hongdae area for looking something nice to buy – then, we're passing-by this café and I'm immediately recognized this café. Lucky, it does not have many customers in this café on that time so we decide to hang out there. 

The Carin Lounge is a pink and gold boutique that sells sunglasses. I just knew this Carin Lounge was upgraded their store to new fancy pink and gold in the last year 2018. Then, it's become trading on Instagram. I like this beautiful and elegant space store, where I can hang out and relax with a cup of coffee – at the same time, I can look some sunglasses in that store. 

The desserts and coffee come from collaboration with JL Dessert Bar and come with a hefty price tag. I just order the Hot Rose Latte with the price is KRW 6,500 (RM 24.20) and the Hot Choco Latte for my mom with the price is KRW 6,500 (RM 24.20). I like the taste of hot Rose Latte and its suit to my taste. I never fail to snap a few photos in this store, while I relax with my Rose Latte. Its nice place to hang out after tired shopping in this area.
