August Desserts, Part One: Itaewon

Taking photos of food has become an international pastime, no matter where you go or what you eat there are going to be people taking photos of their food. It’s a common sight from cafe to convenient stores and it’s easy to see why. Especially when I find a photo of a hotdog or cheeseburger on Instagram with hundreds of likes.

For the past few months I’ve been taking advantage of my job at Chip’s Maps by taking every opportunity I can get to take pictures of food, drinks, and desserts; most especially, the desserts. For month of July, it was one dessert dish after another for the cover story, “Sweet Summer.” I headed all over Itaewon to get some great sweets along with a bit of whisky. Unexpected treats aside, it was a great way to spend a month.

All in all, one of the better months I’ve had. Even if it was mostly due to a massive intake of cream and sugar. It’s hard not to recommend every one of these great places. If you’re ever, in the area I’d recommend stopping by Gaia for their August desserts, Battered Sole for their Cranachan, and Twiga for their awesome cheesecakes.
