Minto (민들레 영토) In Sinchon


They are old photos I just found in my hard drive.

The place is called “민들레 영토 [Mindeulle youngto]” meaning “Dandelions land”. People shorten the name to “민토 [Minto]”

I used to go to this coffee chain to study with my friends.
It’s very comfortable atmosphere to study and you can order food or grab some drink and snack.

They also have private study room for groups or seminar etc. I used to study English every Saturday in one of the group rooms.

If you feel like chilling with your friends, reading or studying( it sounds weird but Korean people do.. :p), check out this place in Sinchon or Hongdae. There might be more of them now.

It’s my favorite pizza chain in the world. It’s pretty thin crust and the crust is generally filled with something like sweet potatoes and cheese. You will never imagine how tasty the crust can be or that it could even become your favorite part of eating pizza. I like the idea that they put a lot of different nutritious toppings on them.
They are many types of pizza so the toppings vary a lot. The pizza in the photo is called “Golden seafood pizza” and it’s got shrimp with plenty of veggies, plus sweet potato filled crust! hahah!
People usually visit stores and sit down to eat and there is a unlimited salad bar which you can enjoy along with pizza or as an appetizer. Just be careful not to eat too much of it and make yourself too full to enjoy the pizza with the full enthusiasm!
I wish I had the chains in Canada as well. Should I be the first one who opens it? 😉
