Cafe Sukkara is a haven from the bustle of Hongdae. Its owner, a Japanese-born Korean, is known for her comittment to organic agriculture and cofounded the local famers' market Marché. This philosophy is reflected in Sukkara's menu, which is reprinted seasonly and details the provenance of ingredients at the bottom of every page. The well-worn shelves are filled with jars of homemade fruit and vegetable preserves. The flavors at Sukkara tend to be less sweet and less salty—their vegetable soup and tofu cheesecake are subtler than most. Bolder palates will appreciate the sweet and bitter enzyme sodas, spicy chicken curry, and mulled white wine.
