15 Quirky Seoul Desserts (1)






  • I have been seeing those tiramisu cups everywhere lately! They even have a place in our small neighborhood that sells those! Those and churros actually…I feel like they are all the rage along with banana flavored foods! That goguma dessert looks strange, but I wanna try it! Have you tried any of these to confirm they are good?!

    • I tried a couple and all of what I had was pretty good! On Saturday, we went to that Bora Cafe! It was really nice too!

  • Laura Nalin

    These all look so tasty! I love how unique each of them are in their own right. Korea really is a dessert lovers dream, eh?

    • for sure! and they really always try to come up with crazier and more unique things for people to try! it’s heaven!

  • Jaclyn Chua-Park

    So cute! I’m surprised there’s nothing from the Poop Café though haha 🙂

    • Haha oh true! Forgot to include that!

  • Nanie –

    These look so tasty and they’re all in Seoul 🙁 whyyyyyyy??? 🙁
    So gonna try them when I go to Seoul next.

    • I know… they’re too good not to try!

  • Shirgie Scf

    This is sweetness overload. I personally love desserts and I am so going to try out some of the food you featured here. I love the photos, it highlights the quirkiness of these sweet treats

    • thanks so much! I haven’t tried all yet either so once I’m back in Korea I’m treating myself big time!

  • Mensch, Lind. Das hätte ich vor einem Jahr wissen müssen. Ich war total überfordert in Seoul und alles war so scharf, da konnte ich gar nicht klar denken. Aber Süßigkeiten haben mir vorm Verhungern bewahrt. Und diese sehen besonders toll. aus. Da werd ich glatt neidisch und will sofort zurück.

    • Na du kannst gerne nochmal kommen und mich besuchen! Danke fuer die lieben Worte 😉

  • Remicone, Sona, and Banana Tree. I need to get there immediately! This is probably my favorite post about Korea that I’ve come across because these desserts are just so interesting!!! I’m legitimately amazed at how gorgeous these are, they look too good to eat! I’m impressed by Sona’s use of molecular gastronomy for presentation. Thanks for the compilation!

    • Awesome thanks so much! I haven’t tried all of these yet myself so once I’m back in Korea, I’m treating myself hard!

  • What a yummy post! Love the photography of these deserts and thank you for compiling such a nice list. Are the flowers in “Banana Tree” and “Sona”edible?

  • What an awesome round up Linda! I can’t believe how beautifully presented they all are! WOW! I am not a huge cream or red-bean fan (and it seems that there is either cream or red beans in just about everything here) but these desserts are certainly make me want to try each one!
    Thank you for sharing! x

  • Kate Carter Hickey

    I want to try each and every one of these things on your list! I can’t tell if they’re all this mouth-watering or if your photography i just completely on point. Which was your favourite treat?

  • Wendy Flor

    Those are amazingly sinful! Beautiful! The purple yam and the one from Banana Tree are the moat tempting right now.

  • Chelsea Brady

    Ahh yes, I live for these blog posts! I’m only ever in Seoul for a day or two, and after a long train ride of sleeping and dreaming about food, I’m always on an instant hunt to satisfy my sweet tooth. Thank you for sharing! And I absolutely love the layout of your blog!

  • Donandsuji

    Now I’m hungry !! 😀 Most of them look really good.
