|This collection comes from my Instagram feed (which I've been updating far more frequently than this blog lately). The pictures were taken and manipulated on my iTouch which isn't known for photo quality, but it's the moment that counts. Enjoy!|
|This is the chocolate espresso my friend Sim got at Como Siempre, a new coffee/chocolate cafe new Garsu Gil in Sinsa. See those layers of delicious richness and coffee? I melt just thinking about it. I got the dark chocolate latte myself. Another friend got the regular chocolate latte, and we all munched on a brownie, too. Everything I tasted there was divine and decadent. I've been itching to go back, but I think it's a good thing for my waistline that this kind of indulgence be a rarity.|
(That cafe, as of July 2012 is here-ish. It doesn't show up on Google maps because it's new. A fancy latte or other drink is about 5,000 won and totally worth it.)
I didn't get a picture of this last one, my iTouch was dead, but yesterday I tried the 3-cheese silk shake (Korean for milkshake?) at Deli Heinzburg in Sinsa. There were some cheese shavings on top, I think they were Parmesan, but the rest of the drink tasted more like cheesecake than anything else, so I was more than happy. Plus, I get to cross it off my in-the-works Second Korean Bucket List.
(If you're in the area, GO to Deli Heinzburg! I've been... 4-5 times now. I don't recommend The Pilgrim panini, but the Jumbo Chicken Burger is awesome. And, don't do the molten lava cake. It's small and very not worth it.)
