I bought Kyoto Uji matcha flavor and milk tea. There were times when I felt bad because yokan was too sweet, but it wasn’t sweet, and I felt that the matcha flavor was just as bitter as it was! I’ll give it to my parents next time too!

â–²Review (Shikigami Ato-chan): Let me introduce you to a cafe that’s easy to walk to from Yeoksam Station~ Actually, Create Cookie is more famous for its cookies than cafes, right? Pop-up stores have sprung up all over the place, and it seems to have become even more famous!!! Is the cake version of the most famous s’mores cookie? When I heard the news that it came out, I rushed in, but I was almost right before the deadline and the cookies weren’t sold out. I absolutely love them because they were so sweet and chewy… Ha… I’ll have to come back soon!!! The atmosphere, the taste, and the friendliness of the staff, I recommend Create Cookie Yeoksam Café, where you can’t miss anything
