A few weeks ago I was up in Seoul for 48 hours. I'm used to traveling to Seoul with the boys so it felt a bit odd to be flying solo on this trip. When the boys and I go up to Seoul we always hit our favorite eats and museums, but this time around I had several meetings and didn't have much free time. But I did manage to finally visit Hara Donuts in Myeongdong.
Hara Donuts / 하라 도너츠 is a donut shop from Japan. Their donuts are made from soy milk and tofu and they are preservative free. The texture is less sweet and more dense than regular donuts. I treated myself to green tea and cinnamon donuts and hot milk tea and enjoyed some quiet time in their cute cafe. Their branding is so cute and the cafe made me feel like I was back in Japan. If you love sweet sweets, then these donuts might not be for you, but I liked them and even went back later in the day so I could bring some home for the boys.
Hara Donuts is located in Myeongdong. The nearest subway stations are Line 2, Euljiro-1 station and Line 4, Myeongdong station. Hara Donuts can also be found at select Hyundai Department Stores.
