This weekend I took a trip out to see my lovely and talented girlfriend, Wart, in Jangsan. Located at the very last stop on Line 2 of the Busan subway, in chi-chi Haeundae, there are plenty of places one can whet their whistles with a cuppa or three, including…
What exactly does “Nudge 5” mean? What exactly do a lot of the names of coffee shops in Korea mean? Are they giving a subtle suggestion for customers to nudge five Americano’s onto their tables? Are they implying that no matter what you order, at least five “chunnuh” (close to a dollar for Americans) will be nudged out of your wallet? Whatever the meaning, Nudge 5 Coffee is open 24 hours, so there’s that.
Caffe Yam seems to be the chain commissioned currently by the Busan subway system in this part of the city, as I saw locations in both the Jangsan subway stop, as well as the nearby Haeundae stop. I wonder if they serve yams?
Yes, this is referring to the lion from The Chronicles of Narnia. I appreciate themes, especially if I can actually understand them. This is a very popular spot, with a lovely interior and decent coffee. Perhaps I will review it more in depth at a later date.
Caffe Bene falls under the same umbrella as the previous post of coffee shops you will find all over South Korea. It’s a bit expensive (on par in price to Starbucks, and without an option for drip coffee!), but I remember often going to another location a while back and having a pretty strong, halfway decent cuppa on more than one occasion. Cannot speak for this Jangsan location, however.
