Amazing cream cakes@Jiyugaoka Cafe, 지유가오카핫초메 Seoul

This was my second time taking Korean Air and with a minimal increase in price compared to MH, you get way better service, better food, and better comfort. However, some Korean friends of mine say they do treat foreigners better than locals. Maybe it works the same for MH too…

The food in this place was more fulfilling and tasty than the many meals I had on MH. (Reminiscing the curry chicken rice).

The weather at this period was amazing, very cool with nice breeze and clear skies. This airport is planned as such to give you comfort throughout your time here. I took the bus to the hotel at an easy purchase over the bus ticket counter, per ticket 16000 won or about RM50+, and all you need to do is stand by this sign board.

And the great thing about it, PUNCTUALITY. They also stationed a local guard/officer at this area who helps any tourist

This was one of the most comfortable and convenient travels ever from an airport to the hotel. The bus driver greeted me with smiles and bowed, then helped me put my luggage into the storage compartment. There were airline magazines at every seat also and the leather seats were spacious and comfortable. Not only that, the driver then came to remind each of us to buckle up and it only took me 60minutes to reach the the doorstep of my hotel to be greeted immediately by the bell boy.

These bus services are also offered to non – hotel locations within Seoul city. And the buses arrive ON TIME. How amazing is this!

Managed to catch a moment of cool breeze with a gorgeous view from the rooftop of Songuen Art Centre, located in one of the most pricey premium locations in Seoul. Amazing view, and beautiful decor!

While strolling around this area, we stumbled upon this cute cafe, filled with toys, books and cute ornaments and decided to just pop in and get its cream cakes a try.

Apparently, Jiyugaoka has several outlets made famous from Japan itself. The pastry chef is known for his delicious cream cakes and here was a hall of fame of photos of him and his family and friends, captured happy moments.

The cakes looked soooo delicious! But they are not cheap..especially for us Malaysians sigh. Each slice cost a minimum 8000won / MYR 25-30.

Mr Rush joined in the cream cake craze! Since each slice came with a hefty price, we settled with just one slice, from Haru Cake, recommended by the staff here. It appeared quite normal looking actually.

But the moment I scooped in the first mouthful, I was blown away. The cream was so light and fluffy and the cake layers were so moist, dense but not over hardened, chocolatey and it was not greasy too. Holy canoly…it was one AMAZING slice of cake. Yum factor 200%. Worth every single MYR penny for finding this golden chance to visit this cafe.

When you are done eating your cake, even the fork reminds you of each happy moment bursting forth upon each mouthful.

Worthy experience and definitely looking forward to come back here again if I have a chance!

Now…for more foodieventures ahead!!!
