Cacao Green

I’m on a roll today. Ehe.

So let me first lure you in with this ultimate foodporn picture:

The ultimate cure to any chocolate craving. The kind of monster that will leave you awake at night, salivating and re-living your encounter with it. It’s the Triple Chocolate bingsu, a type of Korean dessert made up of shaved ice, milk, and sweetened azuki beans- this time replaced with brownies, truffles, homemade chocolate brownie gelato, chocolate shaved ice, and candied walnuts. Um. How do you resist this beast?!

The cafe itself looks pretty harmless- a chocolate cafe called Cacao Green in Myeongdong, the busy shopping district of Seoul. They are also doubled up with a frozen yogurt cafe called Red Mango, so you can order both of the cafe’s menus here.

Me, just about to plunge. Nom.

Dense and chocolatey brownie, slightly bitter and chewy truffle, creamy chocolate shaved ice with the sweet and perfect chocolate gelato.. and the candied walnuts to provide just the right crunch of texture.

I’ll admit, after a while, all the chocolate- despite being all high quality, really great tasting stuff- got a little sickening. (Not that we didn’t finish it- we licked it clean.) We ordered the Regular (around 11000 won), and I can only imagine what the Large (13000 won ish?) would look like. I recommend gathering up 3 Sofie-and-Minsoo sized people, or 2 regular adults, to attack the Regular.

High School Musical references are always appropriate.

Especially when christening a new blog.

Hi, everybody! -In other words, me, myself, and I, most probably. You’ve reached Minsoo. I’m a 14 year old girl, living in Seoul. A foodholic, and an obsessor of almost all things old- vintage clothes, 80’s movies, old bands, records, film cameras, etc. I’m a cheapskate, and you’ll be able to find my tiny 4-feet-11 self toppled in a pile of second hand clothes somewhere.

This blog will include introductions to my favourite hidden away cafes & foodie places in Seoul, thrift store finds, fashion, life, and general ramblings of a teenager stuck in Korea. I’m still clueless and a newbie about the whole ~blogging~ thang, so do bear with while I get a gist of this. Do check out my about section if you’re wondering who is dis chick? 

Otherwise, thanks for reading, and wish me luck on later posts.. I’m a chronically lazy bum.

I think the leggings I wore to sleep today are pretty cool.
