I think places with funny names are awesome. I think it's good advertising too, because, if the name is funny, quirky or somewhat interesting, I want to go in. My friend Tracie is like that, so we like exploring places that have catchy names, and there are a lot of those in Seoul. That's how we came across Hello, Stranger.
We saw it, we laughed, and we said "Let's go meet some strangers". Funny thing, we were the only ones there. So no strangers for us, but yummy hot chocolate instead.
What I love the most about small Korean cafes, is the attention to detail in the decor. Every single one of them is different than the other, and this makes my experience more enjoyable. I have also found out that in every single one of them, the drinks taste better than in any of the chain ones. So yeah, I'd rather give my money to the small businesses. It tastes better, and I can take pretty pictures, so there, in your face, Starbucks. And oh, oh, they had a little Ferris wheel! I love Ferris wheels!
My hot chocolate was absolutely delicious. I have no idea how I didn't have a hot chocolate overdose this Winter, since it's all I seem to be able to order. It's just so yummy, man!
It was a fun cafe to visit, but it's always fun when I'm with Tracie!
