Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brulee @ The Alley, Hongdae

By Farah - Friday, April 17, 2020

Had a chance to go to The Alley, Hongdae when I went to South Korea last year. I actually didn't know that South Korea has The Alley until I saw few people holding the The Alley's cups. It took me two days to figure out the location of The Alley, Hongdae though I walked along the road everyday. lol. 




If I read the banner correctly, The Alley, Hongdae just opened that week. They didn't even have the official opening ceremony yet. At that time, they had this promotion for their reusable cups. If I read it correctly (sorry, I don't really understand Hangul so I just roughly guessed based on my limited understanding), they were selling their reusable cups for KRW 3,000 and you'll get KRW 1,000 discount if you bring their reusable cups everytime you purchase the drinks from The Alley.

Anyway, I found few interesting things from my visit to The Alley, Hongdae. Firstly, they used cute and sturdy reusable cups if you're drinking in (is this even a word?). Secondly, you are not allowed to stay in the cafe (?) if your order is for take-away. I saw them escorting few customers out as they stayed in even though they ordered for take-away. Thirdly, you are not allowed to take pictures of the workers. They will warn you directly if you're caught taking pictures of the workers. I saw few customers got warned by the manager.




On a totally irrelevant note, The Alley Hongdae has this one cute worker. He looks like a mix of Nickhun and Mark NCT. Can you imagine how my heart fluttered when he helped me with my order and sent my drink to my table? Hahahahaha #justkidding #not

I ordered the Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brulee as that's the only drink from The Alley that I have tried. Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as I expected. It was not as sweet as it should be and it was quite warm. It was supposed to be cold though ใ… ใ…  The Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brulee from The Alley Malaysia tastes so so so much better than The Alley South Korea's Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brulee. So, I definitely can assure you that I will never buy the Brown Sugar Deerioca Creme Brulee from The Alley South Korea if I ever get another chance. lol. 

But, but, but, I loved the cold air-conditioner and the cute worker.

Just kidding! ๐Ÿ˜œ

  3. Yang creme brulee ni supposed the Alley punya signature drink kan? Tak pernah try lagi but the Alley memang emphasize on the original taste, sebab tu tak manis sangat. I pun kinda not liking the Alley sebab I suka minum manis! The Alley punya chocolate drink pun kurang manis.
