Cheap finds near Hanyang


This week, I’m writing about some of my favourite places to go to near Wangshimni station and Hanyang University. Not only do they offer delicious food and drinks, they are pretty cheap! Which is always appealing to us students. So here’s the list:

  • Pizza School
  • Red Cups
  • Juicy bar
  • Waffle University

1.Pizza School

32-17, Haengdang-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul

Pizza School offers the cheapest and most delicious pizza in the neighbourhood! When we went there and tried grilled pork/ pineapple pizza (large size – 10,000won), it was plenty enough for 2 people. It is a pretty small place, but they offer delivery service so there is no problem getting pizza from there at all! What a really awesome thing they do is they offer different types of crust (for different prices). For example you can get cheese stuffed crust fro 2,000won more. In large size, the cheapest pizza is 6,000won to most expensive 11,000won.

Open 10:00 – 22:00 phone number: 02-2299-4666

  1. Red Cups

19-54, Haengdang-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul

This family business offers fried chicken balls in a sweet & spicy sauce with pieces of rice cakes and tots (similar to hash brown in cubes) in a cup, covered in cheese sauce. There are multiple sizes, from 2,000won to 10,000won. The counter facing outside is where you order for take out or to eat inside. However, if you eat inside, you pay after. For 2, we got the family size as we hadn’t had supper and were hungry. We didn’t even finish! The portions are really generous for the prices and it is delicious.

Open 12:30 – 03:00

  1. Juicy Bar

3-30. Haengdang 1-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul

Juicy Bar is the place I daily go to because is it that good. They offer tea and coffee but their specialities are juices. They mix up to 2 fruits together and offer medium or extra large size. Some mixes are cheaper, being the same price of 1 flavour. Example: just mango juice is 2,000won or 3,800 won but you can also get a mango banana juice for the same price. Other than this one, there is also strawberry banana and peanut banana for the same price as 1 flavour. Best combinations that I have tried and totally recommend are: strawberry & kiwi, mango & strawberry, and green grape alone or with kiwi. There is almost no waiting time at all, if less than 30 seconds counts. The menu also has the English names of fruits. Overall, in my opinion, this place is 10/10.

  1. Waffle University

Majo-ro 1gil 32, Haengdang-dong 4-11, Seongdong-gu, Seoul

Last but not least, Waffle University is this shop a bit hard to find, but totally worth it. Situated next to Wangshimni station (exit 6 or 12, to your right when you get out), this place is heaven for university students. Inside the place, there is two floors to sit in and you can also order it for take-out. There are 3 types of waffles; original, with filling or with ice cream.  Original includes classic like cinnamon waffle, while with filling would be strawberries with whipped cream inside and finally, ice cream. The ice cream served in the waffle has a consistency similar to sorbet and is tasty without being too sweet. A simple waffle can cost 2,700 won and if you are really hungry or craving a big snack, the ones with ice cream are 6,000 won approximately.
