Dango Jip is a Japanese-Korean fusion cafe located off the main street of Hongdae. No doubt it is pretty hard to find, a small cozy shop serving a homey menu. Take line 6 and get off at Sangsu Subway Station exit 4, where you should see a Starbucks. Go straight about 2 blocks, turn right onto a one way street, turn left at the corner before CU convenient store. Turn right at a black coffee shop, and follow by a left turn to see Dango Jip.
Specializes in dango, aka Japanese sweet dumplings, made with rice flour and covered in different sauces varying from red bean, green tea, cherry blossom and sweet soy sauce. They are so chewy and delicious.
My favourite here is the cherry blossom shaved ice which is topped with the same cherry blossom puree, some crunch and has a sweet milk base.If you’re looking for something savoury, the cafe also offers some Japanese rice bowl including Ochazuke as well as a chicken and egg donburi rice bowl.
Good luck finding your way to this lovely cafe!
