This past weekend, we celebrated our 10 year Dateiversary! The anniversary of our first official date is not something we usually celebrate (or even really remember), but 10 years seemed like a pretty big deal. Plus, there was a new restaurant I had recently stumbled across and wanted to try, complete with sunset views, a rooftop deck, and a cafe doggy.
7pm gastro pub is a westward facing, multi-level cafe, coffee shop, and bar perched atop a hill in the Manchon-dong neighborhood of Suseong. It’s an area of town that, for whatever reason, we have barely explored and thus, were completely surprised upon arriving to find terraced buildings, tree-lined streets, and a somewhat Euro-Korean feel. In this little pocket of the city, multi-level residential homes tucked into their hilly surroundings, outnumbered the sort of (ugly) nondescript concrete city high-rise apartments that are so prevalent in modernized Korean cities. It felt different here. Different in a way that was both unexpected and extremely charming.
