Last weekend I went about 3 hours from Seoul to Daegu to visit my friend who teaches English there! Daegu is about 4 hours south by train from Seoul. I mostly just ate and walked around, but one of the places I went to....was inside a freaking plane. A repurposed...huge...real plane...just chilling on the side of Suseong Lake. If you take the new monorail line in Daegu (a really pretty ride, by the way) and get off at Suseong Mot, you can walk around the lake and find it right next to a rather dangerous looking, sketchy carnival.
Of all the things to turn a plane into, the best thing to turn it not would definitely be an ice cream shop/café, right? Right!
The "ice cream" they have isn't really ice cream. It's more of a version of the Korean bingsu dessert but a little bit more thinly shaved. They call it cotton candy ice and we got chocolate brownie. It was a small mountain complete with a banana-slice border, strawberries, and mochi (Japanese chewy sweet rice cake thing)
The inside was decorated so well. Everything was sleek and almost had a kind of 60's vibe. I think people were laughing at how cool I thought it was, but it was my first time eating in a plane-turned-ice cream shop so what did they expect? The ice dessert was so good and so refreshing, and if I remember it cost less than 10,000KRW. The only thing that would have been cheesy if not cooler is if the staff wore flight attendant outfits buuuut it's okay.
And here's your girl with some fantastically poofy hair thanks to a lack of hair straightener and Korean humidity~
See you guys next time~
