Hongdae is an area that is always crowded with people and excitement thanks to the cultural events, street performances, and festivals. The special streets with interesting names such as ateliers’ street, Picasso’s Street and Club Street are a fascinating place to walk around. Vallya(Буфет Валя) or in Korean 발랴 is one of the famous restaurant that has Russian cuisine in Seoul, located at Hongdae district.
Hongdae can be interesting place to spend your weekend with friends. Because this place has a lot to offer for a fun weekend.
Russian restaurant Буфет Валя
This restaurant is famous for its menu that has delicious Russian food like blins, salads, stake and wine or beer. Since I am familiar with Russian food this place was nice surprise to find at Hongdae.
How to get there
The most direct subway station is Hongik University Station ( Seoul Subway Line 2, Gyeongui-Jungang, AREX), Exit 8 or 9. However, since Hongdae is located in Mapo-gu district there are other subway stops that are short walk away from Hongdae. They are Hapjeong Station (Seoul Subway Line 2 and 6), Sangsu Station (Seoul Subway Line 6), Mangwon Station (Seoul Subway Line 6), and Sinchon Station (Seoul Subway Line 2).
Their menu is in both Korean and English. It has a lot of delicious food and beverages.
We ordered pilaf with beef and cheese bread. It was the best food I had in summer.
After I posted on my Instagram, a lot of my friends asked for the address of this restaurant. So I thought it will be good to share in my blogs also.
The address is 23, Donggyo-ro 46-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul
