Korean Convenience Store Patio Dining

It’s summer now in Korea, and with the warm weather comes patio fun! Just about every restaurant puts tables and chairs outside so that more people can eat, and oftentimes there are more people sitting outside than in. We wanted to do a video about this patio dining culture, but rather than go to an expensive bar or restaurant, we decided to dine at our local convenience store. Some have simple plastic chairs and tables, while others – like our favorite one here – boast wooden patios and umbrellas. Convenience stores in Korea sell everything, if you haven’t seen from our Convenience Store Raid Series a while ago, so no matter how specific your taste, or what you’re in the mood for, they’ve got it! So, this time, we raided our favourite convenience store to make the best booze and snack combos, all based on your personality type! Well, kindof…
The pairings are as follows:
The Macho: Beer and Dried Squid
The Classic: Soju and Shin Ramen
The Chic: Sogopple Cocktail (Soju + Mango + Apple Soda) and Fruit Mentos:
The Connoisseur: BokBunJa (Raspberry Wine) & Cheese Strings
The Martina: Sogurt Cocktail (Soju + Yogurt + Chilsung Lemon/Lime Cider) and Sun Chips
The Simon: Sogrape Cocktail (Soju + Grapefruit Juice) and Sour Cream Pringles

So check out our Korean Convenience Store Patio Dining video, and let us know if there’s anything we’ve missed, any preferences that you have at the convenience stores!

  9. LOL! i do the same thing when i eat mentos. I always eat them the same way they did in the commercials, cheesy smile and all. i was on the subway going to shinchon once and i happened to have a pack of mentos in my bag….i was not well received XD

    based on your reccomandations, I would consider myself a 'connoisseur', but the yogurt cocktail sounds amazing. As a matter of fact, i'm going to go to 7 eleven right now and try it! WHOO!

        • Woohoo! Glad you like it! You can get soju cocktails at Korean bars as well, and sometimes they're freaking amazing. Othertimes, not so much. Avoid the Peach Soju cocktails: they're often wayyyyy too sweet.

  11. Fun video. I enjoyed it. ^_^

    My personal favourite is the Vampire. Glass of beer (3/4 full)… slowly pour a shot of Bokbunja in so that it 'bleeds' into the beer. Delicious. Best with Sun Chips.
