After we finished lunch, we slowly walked back to the subway station. On the way back, we stopped by the famous Napoleon Bakery (many wealthy people come here to get breads, pastries and cakes). “We might as well take a look,” I said to my cousin and made a quick run around. I liked the atmosphere, very spacious and welcoming. I wouldn’t mind sitting down and having afternoon tea here (had I known about it).
The frozen treats arrangement was so cute. Too bad it was winter, or I would have gotten one ‘to go’.
My last dessert before I left and it consisted of chocolate shaved ice at Red Mango & Cacao Green.
Located on the streets of Myeongdong, second floor, this is a perfect place to stop by and have a snack while watching the busy shoppers (if you’re lucky enough to get a seat by the window).
I don’t remember exactly what we ordered, but Carmen told me that the shaved ice is actually chocolate flavoured and then frozen and shaved into this lovely dessert. Topped with more chocolate and brownies, this is definitely a chocolate-lover’s heaven-on-earth-must go place. This was plenty enough for the both of us.
To end my official last hours in Seoul, I suggested to have take-in. I wanted to call it an early night and just relax while I rest and pack up for home. So we had a classic, pizza for dinner while watching a movie (felt like a sleep over!). The pizza options were crazy; sausage, bulgogi and everything else meat. Maybe I’m too Westernized with the idea that pizzas should have peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni and the ‘regular’ toppings that you can find on North American pizzas.
I think I would call it a ‘super’ (that’s on the Pizza Pizza menu), which included pepperoni, green peppers and mushrooms (I’m not too sure by looking at the photo below). All the other options on the menu was what I described above. Maybe next time I will try a classic Korean pizza.
