If you are non-Korean, dont bother. This place has the worst customer service! Every time. For instance, I needed an item I could not find, asked someone and he told me to ask the cashier, who pretended not to hear me.

But let me rhapsodise on the excellent taiyaki. Perfectly crispy outside that shatters upon impact, thick yet light custard oozing out with every bite.... Mmm! Makes a girl weak in the knees, ya know? The... more
