Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun Kona Beans

This episode of SJ Coffee Shops is about a branch of the Kona Beans franchise that is owned by the mothers of three SJ members: Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun.

The oldest Super Junior café, the Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun Kona Beans (that’s what I’m calling it), is located in ritzy, glitzy, posh Apgujeong (압구정). As mentioned in the one-liner above, Leeteuk, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun do not work there regularly- their moms jointly own the shop and have been known to work there (though not all at one time and I’m not sure when/if they rotate duties).  Speaking of which, I saw Kyuhyun’s mom working in the back, and believe me, Kyuhyun is definitely a mama’s boy.

How to get there:

Unlike in the video, my friend and I went during the day, but its the same route (for those of you scared of the dark).

I don’t know if it’s because my friend and I went on a weekday, but the place was pretty vacant- we had no problem getting a seat, and besides a group of fangirls in the back and one going solo over in the corner, we were the only ones there.

One of the things that one will immediately notice upon walking into this establishment is the SHEER AMOUNT of FANSTUFFS.

I don’t know about you people, but making elaborate and creative works of art involving your favorite Super Junior member(s)?

(Yet I’m still wondering how I got time to write this.)

Anyway, on to the food.

Honey Bread

Syrupy sweet, just the way I like it.

Strawberry Smoothie

It was a little thick- my tongue didn’t glide over the smoothie as easily as it did with Yesung’s. At the beginning I didn’t notice the smoothie’s thickness, but as I drank it became more noticeable to me (I only made it about halfway through before my stomach dropped out).  I’m not going to dock points because maybe it’s just that I don’t like the way that particular barista prepares smoothies.

Pondering what rating to give

Well the thing that I do know is that this Kona Beans won the Fanart Gallery Award for showcasing all those many, many works of fans’ artistic endeavors.
