Korean Cafe is like the next up and coming trend. I am seeing for of it recently. One of which is located at Chinatown, a very central location.
The cafe has lots of art pieces that are for sales too. Interestingly, there are a few mirrors boxes which can be opened and you will find some surprises perhaps.
At a glance you may see only a cemented floor but at a closer look, you will find pretty tiles art embedded into it.
The menu is found on a wall over the counter. You will find hot and cold drinks and smoothies for drinks. Two interesting drinks which I am planning to try on my subsequent visits are the Sweet Potato and Cereal Latte. For food, there are Pat Bingsu, Injeolmi Toast and Ice Cream as selection.
I quite like the Pat Bingsu for several reasons. Firstly, the serving size is just nice for an individual, unlike most which serve huge serving which are more for sharing. Secondly, the condensed milk is by the side, you add only what you need. Thirdly, the mochi-like that are topped on the Pat Bingsu and lastly, there were enough flavour in the shaved ice. The down-side is the shaved ice wasn’t fine enough.
I find the Injeolmi Toast interesting as a layer of mochi was sandwiched in between the slices of bread with peanuts dusting on the bread.
I have the Matcha Latte which I didn’t quite like it somehow.
The service at Cafe Insa-Dong was warm and friendly. I like the ambience and the art pieces. And since it is near my home, I am sure I will return for the Pat Bingsu when the weather is too hot.
I have a list of other cafes that offer Pat Bingsu too, click here for the list.
