Thanks to my incredibly generous mother, I get the great pleasure of going to New York this weekend. To make up for the fact that I haven’t really been paying attention what is going on K-Pop, I am making a long and overdue trip to K-Town.
Mind you, I’ve been there before but the fact of the matter is that you never quite run out of new and exciting things to see. Today, I just want to share some of my favorite places in K-Town to find out what recommendations everyone else has.
Literally, this place is a haven for all things K-Pop. Last time I was in there I spent almost a hundred dollars on albums and merch. I think it has to do with the immediate accessibility. It’s one thing to see a bunch of albums on a website and an entirely different thing to see them all in front of you and have to select only a few.
Tous Les Jours
Maybe it’s all the ASMR I watch, but I knew about Tous Les Jours way before I went to it in K-Town and I instantly fell in love. Not only is it a totally instagrammable sight but it’s also got every kind of sweet treat your little heart could ever want. I got a giant shopping bag’s worth of stuff last time I went in and an iced coffee that was legitimately one of the best I’ve ever had.
This is a little restaurant in the middle of K-Town that has a bunch of a la carte entrees and sides. Basically, you just walk around and pick out the things you like, then you line up and pay for them. There’s too many delicious things to count but my personal favorite is their beef kimbap and their chicken. It has a sweet sauce that is so good I want to take a bath in it.
I made my friends come here the day after our Wings Tour date and it was delicious. We got a huge selection of meat and we split the check between the six of us and ended up paying only about twenty dollars with tip total and we ate a ton. It’s on the second floor of a building and it looks out onto K-Town, so it’s definitely not to miss.
This is connected to the Koryo Bookstore but it is a heaven. Literally everything is super cute and it smells incredible. I can’t even remember what I bought last time I went in, but I know it was a lot. I can’t help the fact that I’m a sucker for Tony Moly but it doesn’t help that the store essentially has everything.
Guys, if you’ve been to K-Town, please let me know what your favorite places are. I’m dying to try new spots and get to know more and more of it. This goes for New York in general, I want to know all of the places I may not think of on my own. Leave me a comment and let me know!
