This Japanese-inspired Hongdae hideaway set around an open kitchen manages to hit every category of libation as well as provide a limited, all-organic food menu. Run by the producers of a magazine about Japanese culture in South Korea, Sukkara is often thronged with bohemian students, who lunch on curry rice or soy cream pasta while sipping homemade chrysanthemum or omijya liquor. Make sure you try the fantastic Black Shandy, which couples a locally brewed dark ale with a pleasantly sharp, homemade ginger ale (also available sans the beer). For dessert, a syrupy drizzle deliciously brings together the yoghurt parfait with berries.
