Hi, everyone, it’s Midori here from the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center!
Harajuku is currently experiencing an unprecedented South Korean boom! The number of South Korean idol shops and South Korean desserts and sweets is on a rapid increase.
One of these places goes by the name Cafe Yolum and it’s located opposite Harajuku Station! The name comes from the Korean word for ‘summer.’
To find it, exit from Harajuku Station’s Takeshita Exit and head left down the path.
Keep going straight until you see the pink sign below. The cafe is located on the second floor of the building.
There’s a ramen restaurant next to it called Seiya (せい家) – use this as your landmark.
…and you’ll find the pink door!
The whole cafe is decked out in pink, it’s really cute!
There’s even a neon sign with the cafe’s name written in Korean. Neon signs are really popular on Instagram.
To order, you need to use the pink ticket machine.
First up, I bought myself a bottled drink! I ordered the most popular one – milk tea with jelly.
You get a heart-shaped straw with the drink. It’s really tasty and not overly sweet!
The jelly is a lot softer compared to tapioca. It doesn’t get in the way of the milk tea. Plus, it’s cute!
Next I ordered hotteok, a type of Korean filled pancake! It comes wrapped in paper, but when you open it up the pancake has the Yolum mark on it written in Korean!
The pancake is filled with red bean paste. It’s a milk taste.
If you have any drink left over they put it in one of their own bags for you!
It’s fun to take your drink with you shopping along Takeshita Stree too.
They also introduced South Korean cuisine for lunch on October 18!
