If you’ve walked through Hongdae in the past few weeks, you might have seen people excitedly holding a black ice cream cone. Kumo Cheese’s “Devil Cone” is made from chocolate, milk and …squid ink. In Korea, you can commonly see delicious bread and pasta made from squid ink, but you’ve probably never seen the ingredient in ice cream.
After being featured on SBS for selling 700 cones per day, Kumo Cheese’s signature Devil Cone has become insanely popular. It is rare to see a huge line of people outside of an ice cream shop, but if you see one in Hongdae, you’ll know you’ve found the place.
Kumo Cheese specializes in cheesecake, but their new additions of the Devil Cone and Angel Cone (strawberry, milk, beet) are hot right now. Take a cone in hand and let the ice cream cool you off while walking through the hot streets of Hongdae. Just watch out for your lips and teeth turning black!
