Café Dong-Kyung’s reputation amongst locals is pretty strong. It is in fact, known as “the place to go for coffee before you die.” There is a wait to get in—even on a Wednesday afternoon at 2pm. With so many coffee chain places nearby, I truly wondered if any place could be worth the wait. Could the coffee really be that good? Any doubts I had were immediately erased once I had the Einspänner coffee topped with fluffy whipped cream. A creamy and rich sensation, I understood why it’s received so much attention. The Einspänner coffee is one of the most popular items at the café, in addition to the almond mocha java. However, ask the manager there and he’ll recommend the drip coffee. All coffee is hand drip and attention is paid to every last drop.
