Hope the recent MERS scare has not dampened the spirits of people heading over to Korea soon! KAvenyou not only wants you to beat the virus by exercising health precautions, but we also want you to beat the summer heat – with these super photogenic and yummy desserts all found in the heart of Seoul!
1) Sobok (소복)
Not only is this
cup bowl of ice-cream pretty, photogenic, delicious and refreshing, it is also healthy! The ice-cream balls are actually made from injeolmi, and despite its dull appearance, it actually tastes really good!
Address: Seoul, Mapo-gu, Seogyodong, 408-7
Operating hours: 12PM – 11PM
2) The Menagerie (더메나쥬리)
I would have bought every single design on the display, if not for the fact that each cupcake costs a freaking 6,500 won. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ (I settled for the bear btw)
Maybe someone can get this for my birthday instead? 😉
Address: SSG (Shinsaegae) Food Market, Seoul, Gangnam-gu, Dosandae-ro, 442

When in doubt, have a Thunder Bomb or a Hawaiian Beach! You also can choose other combinations, or mix & match your own flavours and toppings.
Even the triplets love it!

The animals look so distorted but they actually look cute being deconstructed onto an ice-cream. Just eat them quick after snapping 182941041 photos just for the perfect Instagram shot, before they start falling apart.

5) Macarons from LINE Store
I wonder how do people even eat them without feeling any sense of guilt – because they’re too cute to be eaten! If only Singapore’s upcoming LINE pop-up store can sell these adorable macarons too…
