Came here to try out the porridge at the recommendation of a friend. Visited during brunch so it was not so crowded. Food is nice. Would visit again next time.

undoubtedly one of its most popular, Myeongdong takes
shopping and eating to new heights, with hundreds of
shops, restaurants, and cafes all stacked on top of
one another. The rise in popularity of Korean
cosmetics, fashion, and more has made this area a
must-see for visitors who come and marvel at
Myeongdong’s often frenetic pace and energy. Lotte and

Are you asking about the queuing line? It'll be the left line facing the building. The right line is for the restaurant on the ground floor. Migabon is on the 2nd floor.
