I love chocolate yes. but I do not usually drink hot chocolate. most places serve hot chocolate only nice for a few sips and it just gets really disgusting after that. but the ones here at Cherry Blossom is DA BOMB. I am not even kidding. it is so hard to explain. seriously.
because I can’t take coffee, I’ve always ordered chocolate drinks back in Malaysia whenever friends go to starbucks (and you know the other non-caffeine drinks are just so so.) which had contributed to me being sick of hot chocolate drinks.
when Jia Yii told me about this place I had doubts and I would really prefer something else like green tea latte. but I still gave it a shot anyway since he was really sure I was going to like it. and I did.
they have these amazing seats upstairs for you to lay down and it is perfect for couples. super duper romantic in my opinion hehehe. and because it is christmas they also placed these huge teddy bears on every seat. but the place is rather small so getting a place upstairs was some real luck.
went with my pretty Korean girl friend, Sophie!
the decorations are pretty simple but they just felt so christmasy and quaint. loved it =3.
they’d always recommend couples to order a hot chocolate alongside with a more “refreshing” drink because the hot chocolate they serve are really thick. but just drink water in my opinion. the hot chocolate is too good to share. they have 3 levels of chocolate. 20+%, 50+% and 70+%. something like that. my friend took the mild one and I took blossom, which is the 50+% one. they are reasonably priced at 6,500won for a HUGE cup of pure heaven.
it might look tiny in the picture but really, it is huge.
my view from above. I’d always recommend my friends to go to cafes like these. a place that’s more special, small and cozy. =3. and they might serve something so good that you’d get surprised!
and here are some pictures I took with my DSLR when I came here with Kate =3.
Chocolate Patbingsu!!! this was good but I still preferred Homilpat.
their most famous desert. it was.. just alright for me. but it is good if you are hungry I guess. I’ve also tried their apple crumble. it smelt really good but the taste was mediocre.
but I really recommend this place! it is located behind that famous SinSeollongtang shop in Sinchon.
here’s how it look like from the outside. it is quite secluded so it might be hard to find for first timers but here’s a map!
and that is from Sinchon Station’s Uplex exit. from the huge red mirror.
