Walking through Jahamun-ro 9-gil, you’ll notice a small Spanish flag hung with modest dignity. In its 4th year running, this small Spanish bistro has managed to attract many who visit the area. For the popularity it has garnered over the years, there could be always a short wait before you get a seat here (they don’t take reservations). Fortunately, the restaurant opens till 12am on most nights, serving Spanish dishes and a great range of alcoholic drinks. Once you're inside, warm yourself to the casual (and quite chic) atmosphere and order yourself a drink. The Lolea Sangria is highly recommended — the fruity and sweet aromas will get your taste buds refreshed and ready for the scrumptious food. Among their dishes, the Gambas al Ajillo is a great choice to be paired with wine. Place a piece of shrimp on the bread provided and take a bite off of it — although some might prefer to strip the shell off the shrimp, you can just try it whole for the extra crunch and flavors. Within no time, you'll want to take as much left-over oil as possible to soak up your bread and... devour it. Most dishes prepared at Calle de Gomis are tapas, but the one dish that they recommend for a light meal is the 'Flamenco-nes'. Two pieces of chorizo sausages, bacon, a poached egg and sautéed vegetables, all smothered in flavorful tomato-based sauce, come served in a hot pan and work together to complete a quite satisfying meal. You will probably have some sauce left over, which is perfect with some extra bread (that you can always ask for). For a nice dinner, drinks and a plenty of time to gossip the night away in the Seochon area, Calle de Gomis offers the perfect atmosphere for em'.
