When I think of Spain, one word resonates strongly in my mind: foodporn. And visitors to the country (as well as Spanish expats) know how painful it is to be separated from the various stands of jamon and croquetas that entice you on every street corner of Barcelona. Luckily, the answer to your Spanish-food needs is right here for you in Sangsu-dong. Colored in mustard-amarillo, Carino is ironically situated right across the street from an old fashioned Korean son-kalguksu restaurant. On the menu's everything you might miss from the country - a jamón plate with mouthwatering slices of the imported meat, gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp) and, of course, croquetas. Savor the taste with a glass of wine from their carefully chosen wine list or try out their alarmingly good (and strong) sangria.  A bit removed from central Hongdae, the space is small and romantic - making it the perfect venue for a date. Come here to cozy up together or just to forget that you're in Seoul for a while.

Loved it! Its a cozy place, perfect to take a date or go eat and drink with a bunch of friends...feels like being at home...

The price of their wines is good and reasonable, not so overpriced as in most foreign bars in Seoul. They also have great tapas. Highly recommended to taste their Tortilla and their Croquetas!!! Also, their Prawns "al ajillo"! Absolutely delicious!

If you are lucky, you might see Mina Son, she manages it and can sometimes be seen around. Their staff speaks english, korean and spanish. 

My summary in just one word: BRAVO!!!
