Jilsiru is a cafe selling traditional Korean snack such as tteok (rice cakes), hangwa (traditional cookies) and traditional beverages. Located at the same building with Tteok Museum, it’s just a stone throw away from our Stay In GAM hostel. We had previously visited Insadong thinking Jilsiru was there but found out they have relocated at Tteok Museum. We have visited Jilsiru on day 10 previously but because we love the snack so much, we visited them again on day 14 of our South Korea trip (a day before we bade goodbye to South Korea).
Tteok and hangwa on the counter. Let’s grab and grab!
Glutinous sticky tteok @ 1,000 won/piece. Yum!
Black rice sticky tteok @ 1,000 won/piece.
Strawberry sticky tteok @ 1,000 won/piece.
Wine syrup rice cake and white rice cake @ 1,500 won and 1,000 won respectively.
Yakgwa @ 1,000 won/piece. This is my ultimate favorite! It’s made with flour, sesame oil, honey, cinnamon and ginger juice. Really aromatic and I love its cookie-like texture.
You can enjoy your time here. Plenty of tables and chairs for you. We didn’t have time hence decided to pack n go.
Our haul from Jilsiru! There’s another bag but it’s more or less the same.
