Our Visit

Today we would like to take you to 'Perlen Yeonnam' which is located in the trendy neighborhood of Yeonnam. Perlen Yeonnam is nestled within the alleyways of Yeonnam-dong, offering a calm and trendy atmosphere, allowing you to enjoy the serene vibe of the area.

It's decorated in white and wood tones, which creates a very neat and modern ambiance. We would highly recommend it for those who like a calm and quiet atmosphere.

Perlen Yeonnam's signature drink is 'Whiskey Dutch' with whiskey flavor added to Dutch coffee. Although it doesn't actually contain alcohol, you can sense the aroma of whiskey blending with the coffee, creating a unique taste. It's a coffee that can't be easily found elsewhere, so we think it's a must-try menu item when you visit Perlen Yeonnam.

*Whiskey Dutch

Whiskey Dutch is a coffee with a strong whiskey flavor added to the Premium Dutch coffee that is made from Perlen Classic Dutch aged in oak. When you take a sip, the cold brew coffee aroma blends with the whiskey scent, creating a clean and delightful taste. The presentation in a glass with ice also adds to the experience, making it feel like you're truly sipping whiskey.

*Whiskey Dutch Milk

Whiskey Dutch Milk is a coffee that uses the original Whiskey Dutch, frozen into a round shape, and enjoyed together with blended milk and cinnamon. The addition of savory milk adds a soft texture, and as the aroma of Whiskey Dutch blends in, it becomes pleasantly aromatic.

To enjoy Whiskey Dutch Milk, simply pour milk into the glass, letting the Whiskey Dutch melt and blend as you drink. The whole experience of drinking this coffee is quite unique, making it a perfect menu for capturing Instagram-worthy photos.

*Whiskey Dutch Sling

Whiskey Dutch Sling is made from Whiskey Dutch infused with hibiscus, creating a red-colored brew. The addition of sparkling makes it have an even more refreshing and effervescent taste. Combining the tastes of hibiscus tea and whiskey, this drink is recommended for those who enjoy hibiscus flavors.

*Valrhona Chocolate Latte 

*Marong Latte

If you like sweet drinks, don't miss out on the Valrhona Chocolate Latte and Marong Latte! At first glance, they may seem similar, but Valrhona Chocolate Latte uses Valrhona chocolate, providing a rich flavor of dark chocolate. The Marong Latte is a winter season beverage with savory and sweet chestnut flavors, blended with soft steamed milk. 

*Hiby Rose

Hiby Rose is a drink available only as an iced drink, offering a harmonious blend of fragrant flowers and herbs. It has two layers, so be sure to mix it well before drinking. With its refreshing taste and the scent of hibiscus, it seems like a perfect fit for summer.

*Espresso Romano

Espresso is a coffee menu crafted through Perlen Yeonnam's signature blending, offering the choice of beans with berry or chocolate aromas. Adding lime for an extra touch of freshness, it transforms into Espresso Romano. Since the espresso menu is served together with water, we recommend to take occasional sips along with it when you start to taste the bitterness.

For a sweet break, don't forget to try the 'Perlen Bar' desserts—a visually striking, slender cake perfect for Instagram-worthy snapshots.

Perlen Bar offers three tempting choices: Vanilla Delice, Mont Blanc, and Raspberry. The Vanilla Delice delights with a luscious vanilla cream and a perfect balance of caramel mousse. 

Mont Blanch is topped with real chestnut, it boasts a delightful mix of chestnut cream and nutty mousse, making it a perfect pairing with your favorite coffee.

Raspberry bar is topped with pistachio cream and raspberries, allowing you to experience both nuttiness and sweetness. The sophisticated aroma of pistachio makes it a recommended choice for those who enjoy pistachios.

The final menu we'd like to mention is the Americano and Perlen Bites. Perlen Bites provides a crispy and chewy texture with multiple topping choices. You can select from plain, chocolate, lemon, orange, and almond, making it a perfect match with coffee, based on your taste preference. As for the delicious Americano and espresso, it is once again emphasized that this is a cafe devoted to the authentic essence of coffee.

*Whiskey Dutch Bottle

The Whiskey Dutch we've tried first was available for purchase in a 500ml bottle. If you enjoy the taste of Whiskey Dutch, buying it in a bottle and adding ice to enjoy at home would be a great idea.

Perlen Yeonnam is a cafe where dedication is felt in every menu. They also sell mugs with the signature Perlen Yeonnam logo, so it might be nice to take a look. If you want to taste delicious coffee and desserts in a serene atmosphere, you can receive a 10% discount coupon from Creatrip and enjoy Perlen Yeonnam at an affordable price!
