So desserts are a tricky thing to many people, you either hate it or love it. I for one am an avid fan of cakes, pies, and any other dessert there is out there. It is for that reason that I decided to share with you the must visit dessert cafes in Korea. If you have a request for next week’s topic, drop a comment or an email and you can be responsible for the next post!
1. Miki Pang D. Cafe – Garosugil (Gangnam)
Address: 서울시 강남구 신사동 533-14 2층 ／ 서울시 강남구 압구정로12길 34-4 (2nd Floor)
This quaint and very cute cafe has many desserts in the variety from cheesecakes to ice cream on display inside the shop. However, they are especially popular for this particular ice cream with the name Honey Flower Ice Cream which incorporates actual flowers into making the design of this dessert.
You can check out their menu below. There is also an online one at the address: http://mikipang.com. Please note that the above ice cream is not displayed on the online menu.
2. Milky Bee – Myeongdong
Address: 중구 충무로2가 66-6 (명동점), Myeongdong, Myeongdong, Seoul, South Korea
This popular dessert joint is immensely famous for its ice cream, most of which is the Rose-Shaped Gelato Ice Cream. Judging by the name, one would expect for the dessert to be in the shape of the romantic flower, and they are not disappointed!
Below is a photo of the menu that could be found inside the shop. There is no website unfortunately so you would have to be there in person to enjoy these cute desserts.
3. Solid Works – Ewha Shopping District
With this particular dessert shop focusing primarily on their ice cream, they don’t disappoint when it comes to unique decorations. What makes their ice cream different from any other is the amazing style of flavoring, with 100% pure ingredients served in a syringe that is impaled into the gelato.
Unfortunately, I was unable to find a decent photo of the menu, however, it is basically the many variations of flavors for the ice cream shown above. I guarantee this as a must-try.
4. Milk Cow – Gangnam
Address: 강남구 역삼동 813-12 Seoul, Korea
Milk Cow is popular for its milk soft serve ice cream with actual bee honeycombs on the side. Yes, you heard me right and that’s not even the end. There are a lot of choices to choose from, including cotton candy.
Below is the menu of the different flavors that you will be able to choose from if you ever get the chance to visit this cute cafe.
5. The Menagerie – SSG Food Market
Address: 강남구 도산대로 442 (SSG 청담점) / Cheongdam dong, Cheongdam dong, Seoul, 135-948, South Korea
This dessert cafe is widely known for its adorable animal cakes! Sold separately with designs of all kinds different animals, many Koreans and tourists enjoy the cuteness of these cakes.
I could not find the menu to this shop, sadly. Though I do highly recommend you to visit this place to enjoy one of these sweet desserts!
Alright, my Pandas, that will be the end of part one of Most Popular Korean Dessert Cafes. Tune into next weeks’ post. I’ll see ya next time!
