Historic Village Desserts

Historic Village Desserts


(Cherry farts) “Dude seriously.. I’m right behind you.” Bukchon Hanok Village. Found in Seoul, this historic place is sandwiched between two of the city’s largest palace grounds. It’s definitely a place to stroll through,
to get a nice view on some of the traditional architecture. But also to find a few other pretty sweet spots. “Yo, I fricken love choco bears!” “Dude.” “You’re making me hungry.” “Let’s grab something to eat.” Osulloc Tea House. One of the spots in Bukchon Hanok Village with a focus on green tea beverages and desserts. Take a look at their menu and pick out the
one your craving the most. In my case, it’s the green tea roll cake. “Hup. Hup. Hup. Hup.” “Are you ready? For cake rolls!” “Woo!” This roll cake is fluffy, the cake part and
the filling. Go at this dessert however you like. “Ahh” “Mmm” Forking it, cutting it, anyway seems pretty
satisfying. The green tea flavor is there and the cream is smooth with a rich taste. Overall, it’s a really fun dessert to have, and after finishing my last bite I kind of felt another craving. Though this was a craving for the scones and green tea spread. “Alright, let’s do this.” (clinking metal) (scone breaking) “Woo-Hoo! Yeah!” Where the roll cake is fluffy and smooth,
the scones and spread are dense and viscous. Served warm, the scones crumble very nicely into bite-sized pieces. Break them up and dip them in. “Yo, what about this stuff?” “Dump it.” Break it, dip it, or dunk it. Either way, the scones and spread make for another pretty fun dessert to enjoy. So far, the green tea flavor is rich and noticeable, nicely compensating for the unsweetened scones. With two desserts down, it’s time to go explore some more. Back in Bukchon Village. While exploring, see if you can find all of
the courtyards. “Hmm?” “Hm?” “Woah!” Even just walking through the narrow streets. There’s literally so much to admire in the
buildings and their designs. “Look at these details.” “Is anyone else getting hungry?” “Alright, on to the next place.” Back for more tasty treats. But this time, at Cafe Bora. “Purple Swirl!” “Hmm? Hm?” “Ooooo” Purple sweet potato ice cream. I mean, look at this. Perfectly presented, this is an ideal bowl
of ice cream. “I wish I had a petal crown like this one.” “Hmm.. I’ll be right back!” Carving through with a small wooden spoon feels so satisfying. Don’t feel rushed while enjoying one of these bowls of ice cream. “Hey I’m walkin’ here!” Making a 180 degree change in setting. Ewha Womans University. A really modern campus that serves as a really chill place to hang out on a nice evening. As a seasonal treat, the campus convenience store carries self-serve ice cream machines. Fill up a cup of chocolate, vanilla, or green
tea ice cream and find a nice spot outside to enjoy it. “Oh yeah. I also invited Big Pete.” “Pfff! What!?” (heavy stomping) “Aww you guys got me froyo!” “Pete! Don’t move!” “We’ll be right there!” “I’m gonna get more ice cream then!” Back in Bukchon Hanok Village. If filling up a cup with ice cream isn’t enough, then try this. “Mmm” “Yum” “Oooo” Aboong Cafe, serving fish waffles stuffed
with vanilla ice cream and chocolate toppings. Set right on the street, this is definitely
a grab and go dessert. “Awwe” “Ahh!” “Hmm..” Well this has been a lot of fun. Having the chance to visit some of Seoul’s most historic and modern sites was pretty amazing. We tried out a lot of different desserts. All were fun to have and each one had its
own uniqueness to eating it. Overall, it was a very satisfying day for
food. If you’re in the area nearby the village or
the campus, I think it would definitely be worth the time to visit either spot, even if it’s just for a short little while. “Ahhh…” “I can get used to this.” If you found this episode fun to watch, check out the Travel Food playlist for similar episodes. And feel free to subscribe, so you can join
