The first branch of Sobok cafes first opened in Hongdae in 2014. This immensely popular Korean-fusion dessert cafe offers all-natural ice cream made with a mixed brown rice and grain milk and sweetened with jocheong, a sweet rice syrup.
The creamy thickness of this ice cream is like nothing you have ever tasted before. Additionally, the complementary toppings of sweet pumpkin, dried persimmon, rice cakes, roasted sunflower seeds, and edible chrysanthemum flower are an interesting divergence from sprinkles and perfectly paired with the green tea flavor.
Another plus of this ice cream is that it’s served in environmentally-friendly bowls made from corn. Their rice cake ice balls are also very popular so make sure to sample one on the side of your ice cream or order a separate bowl!
