Café Insa-dong- Where Desserts Meet Art

Insa-dong is located in the heart of Seoul, where the streets bustle with their traditional culture, crafts and FOOD! It is a quaint neighborhood filled with boutique galleries, exquisite tea houses, street stalls, restaurants and cafes. Hoping to portray a culture with a similar theme in mind, Café Insa-dong boasts an authentic interior, serving some of the popular dessert choices in South Korea.

Café Insa-dong is a cosy cafe to be in, complemented with their specially-chosen art pieces adorned on the walls. This Korean dessert joint serves up a huge range of Patbingsu desserts and Injeolmi toast.

Patbingsu Ice (Red Bean + Sweet Potato) – $9.00

This is a very popular dessert in South Korea, with many different variations of style and flavours. At Cafe Insadong, this milk flavoured shaved ice was generously filled with red beans and sweet potato paste, showered with crunchy almond slices and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The azuki red beans were soft and moist, not overly sweet. As I dig deeper into the dessert I found their famous rice cakes hidden in it. These rice cakes are meticulously handmade by them with a soft and chewy texture, just how I like it!

Injeolmi Toast + Matcha Ice Cream – $6.50

Toasted white bread with grilled rice cake in the center, drizzled with honey and dusted with powdered soybean. Not only was it visually appealing, it tasted just as good! It had a crispy crust with a chewy center, making it an enjoyable dessert. Definitely a treat for those with a sweet tooth!

Thank you Celine and Chanel for hosting us, I am honoured to be invited to enjoy your yummy desserts.

Café Insa-dong is so nice to give my readers an extra scoop of ice cream when you order from them.
