If you think Pie Republic sounds like the beloved South African watering hole Braai Republic in Itaewon, well, you’re not crazy! The owners of Braai Republic have opened their own pie shop right off of Hongdae University Station (Line 2), Exit 3. You won’t find apple pies here though, Pie Republic sells savory meat pies that go perfectly with a beer. Grab a few and sit on the park outside of exit 3 for a great spring picnic!
According to their soft opening menu [subject to change], pies of all different flavors will run about 11,000 each. Sausage rolls are 5,000 and their lamb chop with side dishes is 18,000. Knowing these guys, there’s likely to be beer specials often.
Go out Exit 3 at Hongik University Station. Cross over the park which is on your right side. Turn right at Coffee B and walk about 50 meters, Pie Republic will be on your right.
