Osulloc is a famous premium tea brand in Korea selling tea (mainly green tea) from Jeju since 1979. The Osulloc tea house in Myeongdong has a cafe and a store. The contemporary design reminds me of Starbucks. The cafe offers teas, lattes, cakes, and ice creams. You can purchase gift sets or teas from the store. One interesting thing sold at the store is their green tea milk spread.
The hojicha latte was delicious. It’s like a mocha but with tea. It was creamy with a roasty nutty flavor. The Jeju tangerine milk tea is one of Osulloc’s popular drinks. Both teas were not overly sweet.
Osulloc is a must-visit for green tea lovers.

Amiso is a Korean BBQ restaurant located on the 5th floor of the Polaris building in Myeongdong. The place is spacious with an outdoor seating area. The restaurant not only serves Korean BBQ but also traditional dishes such as Bibimbap, Ginseng chicken soup, and a variety of stews. The waitress who served us spoke very little English but could speak Chinese. Luckily, my family and I could speak Chinese so we could order with ease.
My family and I ordered dolsot bibimbap (bibimbap served in a hot stone bowl), Doenjang-jjigae (soybean paste stew), and Sundubu-jjigae (soft tofu stew). As customary at all Korean restaurants, we were served several side dishes before our main meal. They were all delicious!
The main dishes we ordered were all good but not spectacular.
dolsot bibimbap 12,000 won (10 USD)
