Black Burns (Black Ice Cream)

Black Ice Cream? A refreshing treat in the summertime. Any guess what flavor it could be?

Black Burns ice cream is located near Ewha Womans University. It’s a tiny shop with various drinks and ice creams, but their signature is the black ice cream and the twister.

They even gave me an option for the cone color – black cone or red cone. For a little contrast, I chose red.

The taste is like sweet grains – comparable to the Korean 미숫가루 (sweet soybean powder) flavor.

It was delicious! There is no place to sit really, so you’ll have to stand outside.

KOPITIAM: Singapore Toast Cafe

It’s a rainy day in Seoul and I was debating if I should head out to Myeongdong or not.

But on a Sunday AND on a rainy day, Myeongdong can be absolutely insane!

So I decided to just walk around my neighborhood in the Idae area. There’s been a little Singapore toast cafe which I’ve always been meaning to get to. Today was finally the day! I wandered in and ordered some toast.

I ordered the Kaya toast (3,500 won) and the Kopitiam Coffee (very sugary, creamy coffee). Actually the coffee was fantastic, but the toast was just good. It wasn’t fantastic, but I think it’s a great little snack. Mostly I love the atmosphere in this place.

They have a very diverse menu.image

I’m happy to have some ‘me-time’ on this rainy day! ❤image
