This is only for those chocolates lovers. For me, chocolate is always be a woman best friend. I always fail to resist anything chocolate, especially hot / iced chocolate drink. So this time when my friend asked me if I want to try the best hot chocolate in Seoul, I said YES!
One Chu is the cafe name. Located in the heart of Garusogil Sinsa-dong, one of the famous hang-out place in Seoul, it is a bit tricky to find the cafe. After get lost for a while and wandering around Garusogil, finally we manage to find it in one of the small corners.
The dim lights and its British Parisian interior style add on to the cafe coziness. Not like those typical cafe with closed enclosure, even in the summer, you still can feel the wind breeze.
You definitely have to try the hot chocolate, which is their specialty, and their churros. Their churros comes with small and large size. We ordered a large churros (KRW 5,000, 6 pieces of churros, enough for 2 people sharing), which comes with 2 dips. I’ve tried their jalapeño salsa, mayo (i forgot the name) spicy chocolate, vanilla bean and butter scotch caramel dip. I would recommend their chocolate and butter scotch caramel dip for those with sweet tooth, whereas for those who like savory dips, jalapeño salsa and the mayo will be a good pair.
Once I sip the hot chocolate (KRW 7,000), I know that I’m coming back here again. I really love the strong and deep chocolate taste. The hot chocolate have own special taste which could not be tasted in other hot chocolate drink.
One Chu is also special with its Sangria. I did not taste it, but my friend ordered the drink. It is a perfect drink to cool down the summer heat.
I’m sure I’m going to miss their churros and hot chocolate when I have leaved Seoul T.T
