I first found out about Le Alaska because of Minwoo (of Shinhwa). He posted a picture of himself with shaved ice topped on a glass of Americano in his SNS. That drink really look very very interesting that my friend – Cin actually planned to go during one of our crazy trips. But we didn’t, because we didn’t have much time to slot it in.
I didn’t even managed to plan for my 2 trips last year, until this year. Because my friends wasn’t kpop fans, I must make sure its a worth-while bakery before bringing them over. I researched more about the bakery and realise that, it was pretty well-known and its even mentioned in CNN Travel article as one of the best french bakery in Seoul. I guessed it will be a great place to chill and have a lovely chat among us :)
Le Alaska that looks very much like a bakery you can easily find in france. The exterior is so pretty that you can’t help to take more photos.
# Banana Chocolate Tart, they doesn’t taste impressively but pretty good :)
#THIS IS FREAKING GOOD! The pastry is so crunchy and every single bite make you speechless. There’s only 1 left, and glad we took this! It’s really yummy with some filling that taste similar to Ferrero Rocher. Can I have it now?
My friend told me that, this is one of their best seller in the outlet. But, it doesn’t quite suit my taste. Jolene loves it though :)
I don’t drink Americano, so I picked a Green Grapes Juice :) I have been coughing non-stop, I think juices will help more than latte :/
Caffe Latte, that they really love it. Le Alaska is really famous for their coffee and their pastry, so make sure you get something ‘right’ :D
Ended a photo with my friends for 12 years! Thanks for being a great travel companions, without complains, and full of praises! :)
Did you know, we actually visited Le Alaska again? That’s probably how nice the place is :)
