Too lazy to take a photo of each page. Too hungry too. :-p

Every 31st day of the month, employees wear halloween costumes to entertain the customers. We went there on the 28th but perhaps because it was Halloween season, all of them were in characters.

The vampire who looks like a Kpop star. Haha

While waiting for our food, I explored the place and took some photos.

My friend and I arrived at 12:00 noon. We had to wait for a while before we were able to have lunch as there were nine other teams ahead of us. Despite the waiting time, the restaurant was worth visiting – the concept was great, the food was delicious and not overly priced, and the servers could speak good English.

How to get there by subway:

Take Subway Line 2 (Green Line) and get off at Gangnam Station Exit 11. Walk straight ’til you reach the end of the block then turn right. You will pass by a narrow path and climb the stairs. Take few steps to the left and turn right. You will see the pink signage of the restaurant. Go down the stairs to the basement floor of the building where the restaurant is located. 🙂
