Charlie's Brau - a brewhouse in nampoIf I could pick places to eat and drink solely on how they look on the outside, then I’d choose to go to Charlie’s Brau every day. I don’t know why, but I really like the look of this place. Maybe it’s the circular shape of the building. Maybe it’s the excessive use of the umlaut. Whatever it is, I want to go here.

But here’s the thing: I haven’t actually gone there! I was out walking around Nampo, looking for some new places to try, and found Charlie’s Brau. I went right up to the second floor to check it out, but it didn’t open until five. It was 3:00 and I already had plans to meet friends at 4.

I did, however, get to peek inside. Inside, it’s not as cool as it is outside. I’m not entirely sure what they’re going for, but it seems to be kind of a “pub-granny-classic” theme with upholstered armchairs mixed with beer signs and posters.

However, what they lack in style is (apparently) made up for with the beer. They advertise San Miguel and Erdinger Dunkel on draft – two fine choices, if you ask me, which is a welcome break from the normal Cass-or-Hite only places. Their menu is pretty typical for Korean brewhouses – they have sausages, fried chicken, and other fried dishes. Again, I didn’t eat anything, however, so I can’t say how it is.

Another great thing about Charlie’s Brau is that it’s pretty close to all the shopping. Most of the restaurants in Nampo are a bit farther away, but this one is perfectly poised for a shopping beer break.

Definitely check this place out and tell me how it is! You might even see me there. I’ll be the guy with two 3000cc pitchers crying alone at his table. Wait, what?
