Osulloc | Insa-dong Street, Seoul

If you truly, absolutely, love green tea like I do, you should really, really visit this place if you happen to be in Seoul and have no time to go to Jeju Island where the high quality tea comes from. On the first floor, they have an extensive assortment of tea that you could take home, and on the second floor is the cafe where we tried their super yummy green tea desserts.

It is a little pricey here, but definitely worth every single Won. I had the King O Fredowhich is a floral-sweet green tea milkshake topped with thick cream and smooth green tea ice cream, green tea cake cubes and a crunchy butter cookie. I also tried a bit of their special set which had a huge bowl of patbingsu or Korean dessert with very finely shaved green tea ice topped with sweet red bean, green tea soft serve and rice cake cubes, plus a chocolate roll filled with green tea cream. Truly a green tea heaven!

Jipangei Ice Cream | Myeongdong, Seoul

Don’t you just hate that feeling when you eat the usual ice cream cone and find nothing but air at the end of the cone? Well, here in Korea, they have “cones” that are filled from end to end!!! These “cones” are pretty thick, crunchy and taste kind of like sweet corn, and you can choose whether you want vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, blueberry, or a combination of these flavors. 

Here are my siblings and me posing for our ice creams! Definitely made for a very filling snack. I loved the chocolate which was semisweet and very creamy, while the vanilla was light and sweet.

Lately my mom has been making these outrageous “ice cream cakes” mainly by baking a thin brownie base, spreading slightly melted ice cream, then freezing the whole thing before serving. At our family reunion today, she made this vanilla peanut butter swirl with peanut butter Kit Kat ice cream cake which was oh-so-indulgent!
