Sweetscapade in Seoul: Dore Dore
This café in Gangnam has become the neighborhood’s splashy centerpiece for extreme cakes. But don’t go expecting to find cakes named after flavors; instead, they name them after emotions. There’s a “Thank You Cake,” filled with cream and cheese, which is displayed next to the “Happy Cake,” a chocolate gatéau filled with cream and bananas. Dore Dore’s signature slice is the “Precious Cake,” which has six layers, each a different color of the rainbow.
Dore Dore is the must-see for anyone looking for great desserts. Although the menu might be slightly on the pricier side, the cakes are that much more savory and satisfying. Plan on visiting earlier on in your tour through the neighborhood, as most of the cakes are sold out by 7 o’clock in the evening.
