Taegeuk Dang is the oldest bakery in Seoul. To reach here, simply take subway line 3 to Dongguk University Station, and exit at no. 2, you will see Taeguek Dang right in front of you.
I’m fascinated as I enter the cafe because there are a lot of freshly made breads and cookies, from chiffon cakes, red bean bun, cake rolls to donuts and coffee churros. Some are already packaged in their old-school design.
Coming here, it is a must to try their renowned homemade Monaka ice cream. One with original milk ice cream sandwiched in a waffle, another with a layer of glutinous rice cake. The ice cream itself is especially sweet, milky, has an icy texture but wise. It tastes a little like the traditional white rabbit creamy candy in my opinion.
This place is so worth a visit for some Korean style bread and patisseries.
