Seoul: Day 2 – Itaewon-ro

So we went to Itaewon to grab our lunch before visiting Namsan Park. We had buffet at Ashoka situated at Hamilton Hotel before exploring the street.

After lunch, we went walking along the street and dropped by Hard Rock Cafe to buy a shot glass for Marzie. But sadly, HRC had been closed for over a year already. The only thing that is there is the logo. The HRC shop had been taken over by Rockshop, selling clothing of many brands.


Later we headed to the Central Mosque. On the way up, we saw many Halal shops.If you ever visited Seoul, do drop by Itaewon. There are a lot of Muslim food as well as Halal groceries.
