Läderach Chocolatier Suisse

CONTRIBUTED BY KELLY GARCIA

Do you know where to get the best cafe mocha ever?

Uh-huh, that’s right. I said “best”. Frothy and smooth, rich and decadent–each glorious sip sliding over your tongue in a chocolate and coffee tango.

It’s here. In Seoul. At this place.

Läderach Chocolatier Suisse. You can tell by the umlaut that it’s gonna be good.

Your mocha will be served in a small cup, which is wonderful as it compels you to slow down and savor each fabulous sip. Plus, it’s rich so it’s really the perfect amount.

Here, take a look. It’s liquid gold.

Yes, those are delicious dark chocolate shavings you see melting into my cup.

Now, I realize by over-hyping this cup of coffee/chocolate perfection I risk creating impossibly high expectations for you. I also realize that there are many, many coffee shops and chocolatiers in Seoul that I haven’t been to so there could POSSIBLY be a better cafe mocha out there.  Maybe it’s foolish of me to declare this the most delicious cafe mocha ever.

Oh well. I’ll take the risk.

Would you care for a sheet of chocolate to complement your mocha experience?

This is a place that knows its chocolate.

Payment:  A cafe mocha is 6,000 won…and worth every penny.  I mean won.

Directions:  Läderach Chocolatier Suisse is located on 1B floor of the snazzy restaurant-packed Seoul Finance Center underground mall. It’s right by the start of Cheonggyecheon Stream. Just hop on line 1 to City Hall Station.  Exit #4.  Walk down a piece toward the stream.  The stairs leading down to the mall are catty-corner from the information booth.

There’s the swirly tree thing at the head of the stream.  And there’s the arrow pointing down to the mall.

    Läderach Chocolatier Suisse has some amazing chocolates!! I’m not much of a coffee drinker… but there tea was pretty good too! There is also a great place to eat in there! Tracie and I went. It is called “My Ex-Wife’s Secret Recipe.” It’s a funny name but a pretty good place to chow down!

    Tania, Joe got the hot chocolate and the kids had a blueberry frappe thing and they were both excellent. And “My Ex-Wife’s Secret Recipe” has to win the award for the best restaurant name ever. What kind of food is it?

    Trish, it was a little slice of heaven on earth.

    Kaho, I wish we could sit down to a coffee together here!
