Towards the latter part of 2018, there was a new cafe in Hongdae that caught everyone’s attention. Yes it was the 943 King’s Cross Cafe and has a Harry Potter theme!

we chose to go up to the 4th floor

My dad and I also went down to see how other floors look like!

I didn’t want to burden my dad in moving floors and we were already comfy at the 4th floor so we decided to stay there.

Before we headed to 943 King’s Cross, we actually had lunch in a Korean BBQ restaurant that is just across the cafe.

I was busy checking the photos on my camera I wasn’t able to hear what my parents ordered but I think we got the beef tripe and beef short rib finger

I suggest to have lunch around Hongdae area or in this Korean BBQ place we ate before you head to 943 King’s Cross so that you won’t spend time commuting to this place just to check the cafe out.
