sobok

Anyone close to me knows that I love sweets, especially ice cream! When the big move was approaching, I started a list of dessert places I found through Instagram. Sobok was high on my list. The photos I kept seeing looked enticing with the thick soft serve.

A little over a week after I landed in Seoul, a friend from high school and I met up in Hongdae. Hongdae is a popular destination for teenagers and college students. Hongik University (well-known for the art school) is centered there with many other colleges nearby. After struggling to find a lunch spot, I had no hesitation where to go for dessert!

I chose the classic sobok ice cream while my friend tried the new green tea ice cream. Just as expected, the soft serve was thick and creamy. In between regular ice cream and melty soft serve? I thought the ice cream was soybean flavor but looks like it is made with brown rice. Not overly sweet and a satisfying texture. It also comes with a soybean flour ice ball and a rice cake. I didn’t think it was a big portion but in the end I was struggling to finish the cup!


親しい人はもう知ってるけど、私は甘党です。特にアイスクリームが大好き!引越しが近づいてた頃、インスタで見たデーザトの店をリストしときました。ソボッ(昭福)はその中で行きたかった店です。写真で見る限り、しっかししたソフトクリームが美味しそう!

ソウルについて一週間後、高校時代の友達と弘大(ホンデ)で待ち合わせしました。ホンデは若い人に人気で、美大が有名な弘前大学が中心にあり、他にたくさんの大学が近くにあります。二人の好き嫌いで苦戦しながら昼食を見つけて、その後のデザートは迷いもせずゴー!

私はクラシックのソボッアイスクリームで友達は最新の抹茶アイスクリームを選択。期待通りにソフトクリームはしっかりでクリーミー。普通のアイスと柔らかいソフトクリームの間?このアイスはきな粉味だと思ったけど穀物だそうです。甘すぎず、満足する食感。きな粉アイスボールと白玉も付いてきます。量はそんなに大きいとは思ってなかったけど、食べ終わらせるのに苦労しました!
