When entering this alluring space, you’ll find yourself in awe. The dreamy interior retains an unfinished industrial look combined with soft pastels and geometric shapes. An array of odd tables and chairs made for a charming seating arrangement. You can also stand at the counter and watch the Korean ladies doing their thing in the kitchen.

The canteen offers tapas and bao buns with a vegetarian option. If your preference is gluten free, look no further, you can have the bun replaced by rice. Meals are about €8 – €10 with an all inclusive option of two buns with salad, raviolis and a delicious “jus maison” for just €15. Let me not even start with their “jus maison”, the super tasty fruit and mint infused water is heavenly.
