Woohoo! I’m back with another ice cream post. It’s finally in the upper 70’s and that has me craving all things cold. Which reminded me of a little place that I went to with my friend Jordan in Cheonho-dong. Cheonho-dong is way out on the end of the pink line and is just a stones throw away from going into Gyeonggi-do. I was really surprised when I finally went up there to visit because it is a very crowded area with everything you could want.
Literally. EVERYTHING is right outside of the subway station.
We had been Instagram stalking on the Cheonho tag and saw tons of people posting pictures of a place called Kings Cream. Those tags are super handy, because we can search in Korean and see where all the Korean people are eating!
After a little mapping, we managed to find it on one of the small backstreets.
The real reason we came here was for the macaron ice cream sandwiches! That seemed to be every picture under Cheonho. You choose your filling and they sandwich it together for you. They even cut it into four pieces since we were sharing it with friends.
You can choose from peanut, red velvet, cream cheese, caramel, green tea and chocolate. We went for red velvet because you don’t see that flavor often here!
Honestly I wasn’t a huge fan, but it was alright. The macaron was great and chewy, but the ice cream wasn’t good. It reminded me of that cheap ice cream that you get at Chinese buffets here in the United States… not much flavor and watery. Bleh.
A+ for the gangsta rap music though. Wasn’t expecting that! 😉
Q: Did you ever try a macaron ice cream sandwich before?
How to get to Kings Cream:
Take the subway to Cheonho station and exit out of exit 6. Right out of the exit you will see a side street curving around. Go down that street until you reach the end. Turn right onto that street and then turn left at the next main street (there is a KFC on the corner). Walk straight and turn right on the second street you see. Kings Cream will be on your right! It sounds far from the station but it really isn’t. 5 minutes, tops!
