Honey Bowl – Sweet, Sweet Brunch in Hongdae

If you’re looking for some seriously tasty brunch in Seoul, this is it!

Set on a side street in between Hapjeong and Hongdae is a simply delicious brunch restaurant.

Honey Bowl

Honey Bowl has a second floor and also outdoor dining. Its decor is bright, clean and sunny – exactly what you need to wake you up!

But enough about that, the food!

Honey Bowl serves pancakes, French toast, and massive combination brunch plates.

The prices range from 6,000 won to 14,000 won. And let me tell you, the portions are huge.

The boyfriend ordered the Simple Plate for 10,000 won: three bacon strips, two pancakes, wedge potatoes, two eggs, and a salad.

I’m not a pancake person, but I had a bite of the pancakes, and it was perfect: fluffy, melt in your mouth buttery goodness.  I stole a few bites more when he wasn’t looking!


I ordered the Eggs Benedict for 13,500 won.  It came with two poached eggs topped lovingly on an English muffin, complimented with tomatoes, cheese, and  a generous heaping of strips of bacon.  It also came with a cherry tomato and mushroom salad drizzled with balsamic sauce.


The soft, poached eggs went well with the  crispness of the English muffin and the bacon just wanted to party.

We’ve come here several times to satisfy our brunch cravings!

The location:



You can get to Honey Bowl from either Hapjeong Station, Exit 6, or Sangsu Station, Exit 1.  Happy food travels! – Love from Jane

The McGriddle: Perfection

The bacon, egg and cheese bagel, and the bacon, egg and cheese muffin have existed, simply existed, lonely and waiting for the magic touch.

They had the simple, beautiful egg who flirted with the mouthwatering bacon and together they kissed the melted, smooth cheese.  But something was missing!  They tried the bread, and the bread was too plain, and thus the delicious egg, bacon and cheese felt … alone.

So then came… the McGriddle!!
