Tarts to Stay or to Go at Aux Petits Verres

Treat yourself to tarts this tinsley time of year. This tiny French dessert shop opened by celebrity chef Park Jun Woo (Master Chef Korea, Olive Show etc.) tucked away in Chaebudong by Gyungbokgung, serves one of Seoul’s most delectable lemon and chocolate tarts. Opt to sit and enjoy the tarts with your fellow holiday reveler, or take some home or for a holiday party. Tart takeout is not a problem here.

Their most famous lemon tart (7,000 won) bursts with the bold and surprisingly sour taste of lemon that is perfectly balanced by the crunchy crust.  For those opposed to citrus flavors, go for the chocolate or the raspberry chocolate tart and spend the whole day savoring the lingering deep taste of dark chocolate (7,500 – 8,500 won). Aux Petits Verres also serves a variety of European teas and coffee in addition to Belgian beer and French wine throughout the day. Treat yourself on a cold winter days and make your way down to Aux Petits Verres for a little sugar therapy with wine.
