At first we walked by without even hesitating, but after seeing so many people enjoying these cones we quickly turned around to join the crowd. These cones were cheap for only 1000w each. We opted to go big and get a mango/yogurt twist cone for 1500w (big spenders, baby). Once again, these guys are going for volume in sales as they have dudes clapping on the street to get your attention.
Here's the outside of the ice cream shop. There's seating inside and from what I saw it was a popular teen hangout:
Aside from the blurry picture (I snapped it quick) take a look at the decoration inside--fluorescent Post-It-Notes all over the ceiling and the walls. My eyes were in pain afterwards from the sensory overload:
The final result...one gigantic ice cream cone that was pretty tasty. Although their cones are tall, they are also skinny so there is not that much ice cream. So basically these ice cream cones are one big sham. I wanted to eat another one after I finished mine! We got suckered in--doh (I say this now, but the next time in Myeongdong I'm going back)!
Check out this video of these guys making the cones. It is an art form the way he makes the perfect twist, time after time. I think he deserves a medal for his hard work (notice the random pan to people nearby and their reaction):
What's your favorite ice cream?
