Korean studio cafe in Pampanga

South Korea sets the trend for everything these days – from fashion to makeup to dining. If you’re from NCR and Central Luzon and you’ve been wanting to go to one of those studio cafes like the ones Korean influencers visit in Seoul, you’re in luck.

Cafe B.O.M in Clark, Pampanga is a Korean-style studio cafe that had its soft opening just recently on 26th November. Besides trying out a new cafe experience and great Instagram content, you’ll also get to eat good food in a luxurious interior.

Studio cafes in South Korea usually let you use their studio so you can take self-portraits. However, Cafe B.O.M takes the Korean cafe experience further by offering a complimentary photoshoot in their studio by their in-house photographer.

Besides this studio shoot, you can also take your own photos at this cafe’s modern art deco interior.

Arched windows and interior partitions make the place look classy while its dark ceiling and warm drop lighting fixtures set the mood. The place is also peppered with wooden furniture in sleek, modern designs.

While the studio cafe concept came from South Korea and the art deco interior was inspired by France, Cafe B.O.M incorporates a hint of local art into their interior. They support local artists by buying their artwork to display at the cafe or hiring them to do their murals.

As Italian restaurants are also a trend in South Korea, Cafe B.O.M also adapts this menu.

They serve pasta in authentic Italian flavors. These include cacio e pepe (P390, ~USD7.74) which has a simple sauce flavored with salty pecorino romano cheese and black pepper, and fruitti di mare (P420, ~USD8.34) with mixed seafood and tomato-based sauce.

These are great to pair with pizza which they have in flavors such as Margarita, shrimp and garlic, and creamy bacon and spinach.

For a sweet snack or dessert, the cafe also offers an array of pastries including bread, brownies, tarts, cheesecakes, and cakes.

Wide variety of beverages

There’s also a wide range of options for non-coffee drinkers such as tea, fresh fruit ades, and smoothies in different flavors.
