Banjak Banjak Bitnaneun is both popular among Koreans and Foreigners. This place is located in Insadong, a traditional shopping district in Seoul. 

This cafe is known as the traditional Korean tea house, but also offers fusion smoothies and baked injeolmi.

If you are visiting this cafe in a group, I would like to recommend you to order multiple dishes and share it with friends.

I ordered plum tea, jujube tea, and sweet pumpkin smoothie.


Sweet Pumpkin Smoothie


Sweet Pumpkin Smoothie resembles shaved ice.

The ground ice has a fine texture and it melts almost instantly in the mouth.

Sweet pumpkin smoothie is not too sweet. I would recommend this dessert for those who do not like a sweet dessert.



On my previous visit, I've tried Schisandra Smoothie and Persimmon Smoothie.


Persimmon Smoothie


Persimmon Smoothie had a strong persimmon flavor and was very sweet. However, it did not taste artificial. 

This would be great for those who like sweet desserts.


Schisandra Smoothie


Schisandra Smoothie had a refreshing taste. You will feel the "healthy" flavor with one scoop of the Schisandra smoothie. This is a great dessert for summer.


Jujube Tea 


Jujube tea is a Korean traditional tea and had a very strong Jujube taste.

It felt like I was drinking highly concentrated jujube juice. I felt my body was invigorating.


Plum Tea


Plum Tea tasted like the homemade plum extract juice.

This juice is very bittersweet, so I would recommend this drink to foreigners.


Baked Injeolmi Rice Cake


Banjak Banjak Bitnaneun's signature dessert is baked Injeolmi rice cake. Injeolmi rice cake gets larger when it is baked. The outside of the rice cake becomes crispy and the inside gets sticky.

 


The Baked Injeolmi is served with citrus honey and regular honey. You can dip the warm rice cake in the honey sauce. Many visitors became regulars after tasting this Baked Injeolmi.

I personally wanted to visit this cafe again after tasting the Baked Injeolmi rice cake. 

However, you have to finish the rice cake before it gets hard.



The interior of the cafe was not big, but there are plenty of comfortable seats. There is even a place where you can experience the Korean ondol room.



In the store, you can leave your comments and doodles on a notepad.



If you have a plan to visit Insadong, check out Banjak Banjak Bitnaneun's signature traditional tea and baked injulmi rice cake!
