Are you looking for the cutest and the most instagrammable ice cream in Seoul? Come and visit Bistopping (비스토핑). It’s a dessert shop that makes specially-designed ice cream cones and imaginative cookie and chocolate toppings. Bistopping makes Willy Wonka’s dream a reality!
Bistopping has two shops in Seoul – one in Jamwon-dong (near Sinsa station) and another one in Seogyo-dong (near Sangsu and Hapjeong station). Yesterday, my husband and I visited the Seogyo-dong branch, also known as Hongdae (Hongik University) branch.
It is just a tiny place and can be packed from late afternoon to early evening. We went there right after lunch and luckily, not so many people were there. I noticed that this shop is popular to Japanese tourists. And yes, I heard the word “kawaii” many times.
Here’s how to order your personalized ice-cream.
Step 1: Choose your ice cream. Sadly, there are only three available flavors.
- Milk – 4,000 KRW
- Yogurt – 4,500 KRW
- Chocolate – 5,000 KRW
Step 2: Choose your cone design.
Step 3: Choose special toppings from the showcase. The toppings have different prices.
We were still full after having grilled meat for lunch so we ordered only one ice cream. My husband doesn’t like sweets so he just had small bites of the cookie (flamingo and cactus) toppings. If you’re not into ice cream, here are some drinks that you can order. ^^
It’s quite pricey for a cone of ice cream but it’s worth trying. The waffle cone, cookies and ice cream were all of great taste and quality. Also, the combined creativity and hard work of the food artistans behind this business is just priceless!
How to get there:
- 서울특별시 마포구 서교동 401-16
- 401-16 Seogyo-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, Korea
Take Seoul Metro Line 6 and get off at Sangsu Station Exit 1. Go straight until you reach Dang-in-ri sageori (intersection). On your right, you will see a parking lot. Turn right. Turn left on the first block. Walk a little bit more. Bistopping is on your right.
