Cafe Bora カフェボラ – Purple Bingsu

Bora, meaning purple in English, is the colour highlighting this cafe.

As one of the popular cafes in Samcheong-dong, it is signature in bingsu and soft serve ice cream that are all made from purple sweet potato.

The bingsu combines finely shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk and a creamy layer of sweet potato espuma. Some additional top ons are served on the side such as sweet potato chips, candied walnut and more sweet potato puree in case there is not enough for the bingsu.

Another must try is the homemade sweet potato ice cream. It is deletable and mildly sweetened which is so creamy, silky and lovely treat for the eyes.
The peanut flavor is also amazing but has a comparatively strong peanut aroma.

To reach Cafe Bora, take subway exit 1 at Anguk station, turn right until you see an entrance going to direction of Samcheong-dong. Continue to go straight for 10 mins then it is located on the left, opposite to a croissant taiyaki stall.
