Food: Primo Bacio Baci

When you are in Seoul, there are so many delicious dishes that you probably won’t think of eating any other cuisines. However, if you ever feel like deviating from the normal kimchi, rice and noodles, here’s a recommendation for you! Italian food at Hongdae, named Primo Bacio Baci. I believe this restaurant 1 branch in Myeongdong as well, but I have not patronised that outlet before – I’ve only been to the Hongdae branch.

Jeaness’s buddy Ensun brought us there during our exchange programme last year, and this time round we told her that we missed that food there and so there we went!


Take to Hongik University Station (Line 2) and exit via Exit 9. The moment you come out of the exit, you will see Skin Food, Watsons and more right in front of you. Primo Bacio Baci is right above Watsons, as you see in the picture below.
PBB.001 PBB.002This comes with every order you make, and this bread is delicious! It’s similar to garlic bread, except that it’s sweet and soft.


Ensun has some voucher to redeem and so we got this garden salad for free.PBB.004


Some of them ordered Lasagna, which is filled with mushrooms. Mushroom lovers, this is one dish you want to order!

 Pasta in Arrabbiata sauce

It’s a little spicy, and can get very spicy once you finish the entire plate of pasta so a little warning there!

PBB.005The highlight of the meal – Pasta Pane 😀

It’s basically creamy pasta served in a bread bowl, together with small pieces of bread by the side. This dish is wonderful! I loved the taste of cream sauce together with the pasta and bread. One tip: you can ask the waiter for more sauce (free!) when you’ve finished the cream sauce! 🙂

PBB.007The meal also comes with desserts after that. You can choose from Mango / Strawberry shaved ice. Very refreshing!

The restaurant is very popular amongst the locals, so do go early. For both times we had to wait, and it’s better to go on a weekday. In case the first photo is too dark, here’s another one with the shop name, taken in the day 🙂


Address: 44, Wausan-ro 23-gil, Mapo-gu, Seoul

Telephone Number: +82-2-323-0098

Operating Hours: 11am – 11pm (last order at 10pm)

After dinner, Ensun suggested we go for Round 2 and so after walking around Hongdae for a bit, we decided to go to a nearby noraebang 😀 Look at the pretty room that we got! It’s about 5,000 krw per person for an hour, and we just spammed tons of korean songs, sang / shouted (hahaha) into the microphone, took photos and videos etc.

PBB.008 PBB.009I’ve also purchased a few Korean textbooks and will start studying for the TOPIK exam soon! This probably means more café trips 😉

Love, J ❤
