Salon de Ceylon & Macaron is a tea house in Yeonnam-dong, Dongjin Market alley. It may be hard to spot, but keep an eye out for the signboard marked “ㅅㄹㅅㄹ.” As you open the door, the marvelous scents of black tea and baking cakes will hit your nose and soothe your heart. The interior fits right in with the atmosphere of an old market alley and yet manages to stay classy and cozy. A 40 year-old grid frame window, which had been hidden, sandwiched between panels, has been restored using high quality lumber. The menu is quite simple: black tea, milk tea, macarons, and carrot cake. For black tea, you have a selection of high quality purveyors like Rishi Tea or Harney & Sons. Salon de Ceylon & Macaron is famous for their delicious carrot cakes, which are made using organic carrots, organic apples, organic unrefined sugar, and organic eggs free of antibiotics. Who could say no to that?
