[seoul] seongbuk-dong: chocolate con churros

I’ve been a long time churros addict and another new comer to the Sungbuk-dong area is this churros shop I was UBER excited to try.

The exterior of the shop was what first drew me in. Painted in hot pink with gold bold letters – a perfect combo of colors (at least for girls).

I loved how choco latte wasn’t sweet at all, though I kind of wish it was since it’s for the purpose of dip as well as to drink but um, this choco ‘latte’ is SO thick, rich and creamy you won’t be able to drink it like a cup of coffee but again, I heard all spanish choco lattes are this way due to its high percentage of cacao.

Overall impression of the place is that the churros wasn’t as good as I expected or I just had my hopes up too high or maybe I should have tried the cinnamon churros instead – I don’t know. But one thing for sure is that their Americano was by far the best I’ve tried around the area.

Korea’s weather is so amazing lately. All trees are drenched in red and yellow – only thing that makes me miss living in Korea more than anything.

I hope everyone is having a good day :)
