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.

Long time no see! I was feeling the wintry mood. I’m heading to Hawaii next week but I’ve always wanted to try gradient white nails ever since first laying eyes on them in The Great Gatsby. So cute! ♡

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

Cooking Class Near Ewha – Bibimbab and Miyok-guk

image

I have previously attended these classes hosted by the Itaewon Global Village Center.

You go, get into small groups, and learn how to prepare Korean dishes.

It was a really great experience for me! Especially I can get a chance to meet other foreigners living in my area!

If you are interested, you can contact them. All classes must be paid in advance however. This is a very nice, clean cooking school!

If you know where Kosney and Top Ten in Edae is, it is in the same building!

Hope to see you there!
