Itaewon Cafe：r.about Recommended Reasons
- r.about is located in the middle of Itaewon. It is known for its vintage style interior design. Many Korean Instagrammers already uploaded thousands of photos on r.about, and the place instantly became a social media phenomenon. Some people made their visit from other parts of the country just to take photos.
- r.about's chocolate brownie is very sticky and thick. If you prefer dark and thick brownie, you will love it here. This is also one of my favorite brownies.
- r.about has interesting antiques, furniture, and decors. If you want to see how the typical house (hanok) looked like in the old days in Korea, you should stop by r.about.

Itaewon Cafe：r.about Photo Review
I was able to see this old-looking house (r.about) after a short walk from Itaewon Station Exit 3. At first, I wasn't sure if this was the place I was looking for.
After seeing the sign 'r.about,' I slowly walked into the cafe. I was very proud of myself that I found this place without getting lost.
As I entered the cafe, I was able to feel the unique vibe. The interior design was a bit rough, but I was still able to feel the designer's warm touches through the vintage antiques.
The tables and chairs got along well with the ornamental plants. I am into interior designs, so I was able to spot the designer's thoughtful juxtaposition through the point decors. At first, you will get the impression that there is a harmonized theme for the interior design. Furthermore, as you look closer, you will be able to find the designer's cute details. The plants fixated on the ceiling also adds a natural tone.
I really liked the details of the interior design here, so I took a lot of photos.
Now, you should not leave this cafe unless you've tasted the famous Chocolate Brownie.
First, the pour over and flat white coffee are the two best-selling drinks at r.about. The pour over is simply drip coffee. You can choose one of the two coffee beans for the drip coffee, and the barista can change the level of sourness for you. Oh, and they use Fritz coffee beans! If you are a fan of this brand, you can buy the beans from this cafe.
Do you see the sticky notes on the wall? Those are all r.about regulars' coupon sheets. If you don't want to carry the coupon around, you can keep it at the cashier. You can see that this place has so many regulars!
I ordered brownie and flat white. The manager gave me a bunch of lavenders so that I could take a more sophisticated photo (I hereby give my photo credit to the manager, who was so kind!).
Of course, I took a million photos before I start digging in.
Brownie(5,000KRW) was very sticky and thick. The extremely dry (with a lot of crumbs) or fluid-like brownies are not so appealing to me. In that way, this Brownie definitely did its part. I think those of whom love dark chocolate would go crazy over this! I finally understood why this Brownie had sensational reactions from many social media channels in Korea.
Flat White(5,000KRW) came with a cute heart-shaped latte art. Flat White coffee tasted a bit bitter and nutty. I would recommend this drink for those who prefer latte over Americano. Pour over coffee is also popular, but I couldn't try this time. T.T I've decided to come back to try the pour over coffee.
I am going to end this post by sharing this cute interior detail I found at r.about.
Do you see the photos shown below the word "CAST"? These photos look very old. Actually, the people who are in these photos are not actors and actresses, but rather the cafe manager and baristas! They also wrote the specific roles, like "a witch" or "a Beauty." The barista whose role was the "Beauty" took my order, and I completely understood why they were calling him a beauty.
