Yolgok-ro 3 gil (율곡로3길)

Bringing kids to travel meaning more desserts time. They'll give you infinity reasons to indulge their sweet tooth. This was to bring back the smiles on their faces because there's no sledding session at Children's Grand Park. So, even after heavy dinner they still remember to claim the bingsu.

Brought them to Cafe Bora for purple sweet potato ice cream.

I was so tempted by the pretty purpley icecream posted by VIP Tour members from Japan. They went to this cafe, while we'd fun at Cheongyecheon Stream for Seoul Lantern Festival.

Alas~! It's closed and kids insisted to wait because the light was on.

 Finally dragged their feet off after I searched internet and found another cafe nearby.

Loving this beautiful alley which traditional and modern blend perfectly!

There are many cafes and small restaurants selling fusion food and snacks.

This Madang flower shop look familiar, right?
It's filming location of popular K-drama "Goblin" (도깨비).
Btw, Madang Flower Shop does not exist anymore.

In episode 4, the Grim Reaper doesn’t get Sunny out of his mind. Walking down the street, he sees her in every single woman he passes by – one of them is standing in front this flower shop.

OMG!!! I have the photo (Dec 2015) with my hubby & kids standing
at almost the same spot including the point of view.

In episode 8, Sunny and the Grim Reaper take a walk and come to a halt
in front of this shop and sent Sunny home after he'd sever heart pain.

 Savoureux (샤브르) Ice Cream House.

The cafe was empty, maybe because it's just weird people like us
having ice cream at cold winter night...

Actually, they're selling some macaron, biscuit choux,...

donut, pie and hotdog, fries, coffee and others drinks too.

Savoureux Menu Board.

We ordered Mango Sorbet, Brown (Chocolate) Sorbet and Banana Soft.

We went to 2nd floor for more seating space.

Simple clean vintage and rustic interior.

Photo time while waiting...

Shaved Sorbet - KRW 8,900 / plate

Savoureux Soft - KRW 4,500
Ok, now you can see their smiley faces!

Add: Yulgok-ro 3-gil, Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul.

Can you see Jongno Tower? It should be about 30 minutes walk
to PJ Hotel, but we took subway to save our energy.

Yulgok-ro3 gil at night...
Samcheongdong has something for everyone |
I remembered this stone wall because I walked from Samcheongdong to 
Insadong through this alley with my Korean friend in 2014.

 Apparently this street outside Duksung High School [덕성여자고등학교]
 appearing quite frequently in many K-dramas...

Goblin episode 1: The street where Eun Tak sees Kim Shin for
 the first time when both of them pass by each other.

Nam Hong-Joo and Jung Jae-Chan pass by in front of this high school independently
in episode 3 of While You Were Sleeping (당신이 잠든 사이에).

My Golden Life (황금빛 내 인생) episode 1: Seo Ji-Soo chases Sun Woo-Hyuk,
 and passing by Savoureux and hanok-style house.
