Handmade chocolates served up sweet at Cacaoboom
Located in Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Cacaoboom is a chocolate café serving up only the finest handmade chocolates. Famed for its handmade Belgium chocolates and chocolate-infused beverages, in summer the café rolls out another sweet surprise: Cacao Bingsu. Served from July to September, this summertime treat is made using chocolate that has been frozen and melted several times to create a thin ice, which is then shaved to make the bingsu base. The sweet flavor of the chocolate ice is further enhanced by a warm cacao sauce drizzled on top. Garnished with crisp almond slivers and pieces of chocolate, this dark chocolate delight offers a mildly sweet taste full of deep chocolate undertones.
