Hi, it’s me Marimonda!
Today, I’d like to introduce you to a Korean dessert cafe in Paris <Plus 82>. It’s really hot these days, thus I thought it would be nice if you can try some cold pause during the day.
There are many Korean restaurants and dessert cafes in Paris, but I found this is more authentic and contemporary one than other stores. The interior of the store seems a bit fusion because Korean-style props and modern simple style props were harmonized in this cafe. The chairs were pretty but somewhat uncomfortable to stay for some time to talk with friends and to relax.
Menu and Price
Bingsu, a typical summer dessert in Korea will give you a cool pause and refresh you. Originally, it is made of crushed ice with some sweets on top such as pat(sweet red bean paste), ddeok(rice cake) and jelly with some drips of condensed milk. Instead of the sweet red bean paste, these days more options are available such as fruits, coffee, green tea powder, etc. Normally, it’s considered as a snack that you share with your friend or family. It’s not common to have the whole bowl by oneself.
Here, you can also try from the basic bingsu (padd bingsu) to fruit ones. You can also find other beverages such as coffee, juice, or tea. I went there three times, but the best one was the basic one.
Consist of many layers of ingredients, Bingsu will give you a icy breeze in your mouth. You can pour more or less the condensed milk depending on your taste.
Green Tea (matcha) cookie is also served with some condensed milk which made the cookie too sweet. It’s recommendable only if you drink black coffee such as americano.
You may feel it’s expensive that paying €7~8 per menu after the meal. As I mentioned above, however, it’s very common to share the dessert with your friends in Korea. If you share it with your friend, it won’t be that high price. Though, I found the snacks like the green tea cookie( around €2) above or other bakeries are pretty expensive. Teas and coffees cost around €4~5, which is similar price in other cafes in Paris.
Hope this review help you to choose a cafe in Paris. See you soon 🙂
