their number of chains here are madness. you will SURELY stumble across Baskin Robbins if you were to be in Seoul for a few days. SURELY. around my area, there’s already 3. and all of it is usually packed with people even in such a weather.
Baskin Robbins? mehhhh. I had it in Malaysia and it wasn’t really my cup of tea. it was so super sweet and I can’t help but to feel guilty every time I had it. the only few times I had Baskin Robbins in KL was probably just because it had a promotion and I’d opt for the choco flavour as sweet choco isn’t so bad.
as for here, originally I thought it’s going to be like everything else, being more expensive than KL. but to my surprise, it’s actually CHEAPER than KL! everyone here come in either pairs or a group. pairs would order..
something like this. a plate of SOMETHING. there was even ice cream on toast which looked.. weird.
this costs 4900won that’s about RM14. this isn’t as worth it because there’s only one scoop of ice cream but oh well, they have a waffle with it plus decos and all.
but usually people order a PINT. you didn’t get me wrong. one whole PINT! in Malaysia it costs around.. RM25?? but here it’s only 6300won if I am not wrong. which is around RM18. for that kind of price in Malaysia you would have to wait till the end of the month and go through a long hazardous queue to get it.
the best thing about eating it here is.. it isn’t too sweet. the bad part? well, of course there’s a bad part to everything. they wouldn’t lure you to the counter and ask you to try on every flavour hahaha. I guess they have stopped doing that too in KL. =P.
perks? THEY GAVE ME A FREE PEN!
the eyes roll!! and the whole snowman wiggles *ifyougetwhatimean*.
I’ve always loved gifts, and I always will. typical Malaysian. and Koreans love giving gifts. it’s a happy place for me to live in =D.
잘먹겠습니다! jalmeogesseumnida! NOM ALL THE ICE CREAM!
just look at how huge one pint is. and they had to stack it up like a mountain! =3. but they carefully weighed the ice cream so everyone gets their fair share.
cakes here are really pretty. not only the ones in Baskin Robbins but I guess these cakes are like our Secret Recipe cakes as Koreans love getting Baskin Robbins cake for their Birthdays =D.
this is a 3 storey high shop. the bottom has no tables. solely for ordering. I sat on the 2nd floor which was already full when I left and I saw many people going upstairs to the 3rd floor too. here, you have to decide on what you want, pay, and THEN you select the flavours.
PS : trust me. eating Ice Cream on a cold day is really nice. you feel cold outside, but you won’t get chills eating ice cream here, especially because it’s pretty warm in the shop.
Omg the pen so cute ! Hope they still giving it when I go there !!!!
I fell in love with Baskin Robbins when I first had it in Taipei. Later on I tried it at JB and the taste was quite different and not that nice.
I was in Seoul for 2 weeks but always didn’t get to eat it. I was full of regret on the bus back to Incheon Airport and to my surprise there was an outlet there!! But……I was in a rush to do my tax refund and missed having it again. Duhzz.. Totally no fate ~>.<~
