One classic combination of that of Beer and French Fries. In Korea we has a Pub / Bar Chain called Avec Des Frites (아벡데프리츠) which specializes in this combination. It has cheap beers and it generally open late, so it’s the type of place you’re likely to end up in at some point. Here are our thoughts on Avec Des Frites.
Thoughts: The beer is cheap at just ₩2000 ($2) for a 330ml draft beer. Plus you can get a range of 6 different flavored beers such as Lemon, Grapefruit and even Coffee. There are also soft drinks but the focus is on beer. Food, the menu is pretty simple with different sizes of french fries being the highlight, costing from ₩4000 ($4). The french fries are tasty, good quality and fried fresh. Of course a downside to the food is that it’s not very healthy or a full meal. The range of sauces is also a big deal, 16 different flavors with our favorite being sour cream, but Mayo and Ketchup are classic and close behind. The pub / bar itself is pretty plain, but a nice place to hang out in and chat.
Overall Avec Des Frites is a nice place to go either after dinner or before a night out or even for a couple of drinks after work.

With the Beer+Fry Bar craze, I was wondering how you think this place stacks up to some of the other chains, like Bongoo Beer, Bonjour Beer, etc.
Honestly we’ve never been to the places you’ve mentioned so can’t comment on them.
Vs. a few other small Korean Pubs/ Beer place Avec Des Frites ranks highly and is only maybe missing burgers from it’s menu.
