LotteRia Fast Food at Seoul National University Entrance

While the area in front of Seoul National University Entrance Station exudes a bustling city vibe, surprisingly, you won’t find franchises like McDonald’s.

However, there’s a place that can satisfy your cravings – LotteRia. Without LotteRia, finding fast food like burgers near Seoul National University Entrance would be quite challenging, so we’re fortunate to have it. (If you’re looking for a nearby McDonald’s, you’ll have to go two subway stops to Sinrim Station.)

“South Korea’s First Burger Franchise: LotteRia”

LotteRia is operated by Lotte GRS and is known as South Korea’s first burger franchise. The name is a combination of “Lotte” and “Cafeteria.”

It opened its first branch on October 25, 1979, in Sogong-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, but eventually disappeared due to the renewal of department stores and Lotte Hotels. As of now, the oldest LotteRia branch is the underground 2nd branch in Lotte Department Store Main Branch.

Currently, LotteRia has over 1,286 locations in South Korea, which is over 800 more than both McDonald’s and Burger King. Thanks to this, you can find LotteRia in various key locations throughout the city, including near Seoul National University Entrance.
