I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this before but even though I don’t particularly like eating cake, I have a cake problem. I have a weird obsession with buying really well-decorated cakes which I intend on eating but really I just take about gazillion pictures and then they just sit in my fridge until they go bad or I give them away.
However, I have discovered the most delicious little cake shop that even I devour these little pieces of art within minutes. Located in the back streets of Hapjeong near Zapangi is tiny little cake shop called Dinga House.
Dinga House is a tiny little vintage cafe and looks like it is straight out of the 1950’s. The tones are pinks, blues, and overall adorableness. There are various pieces of décor like vintage cans of Campbell’s soup and old cabinets. The main counter is complete with several cake stands and they have roughly ten different and beautiful, beautiful cakes. They are all decorated in extremely cute fashion.
My friend Sid, and I ventured there after work one night and were delighted by our experience in gastronomic heaven. We arrived a little late in the evening but thankfully we managed to score ourselves two delicious pieces, one decorated as a pizza and the other as a hamburger.
The cakes are fondant cake, and they are baked perfectly and the inside is moist and soft, but still remaining fluffy and yet dense at the same time The texture is balanced with an awesome level of sweetness, that leaves you craving more.
I would void visiting the cafe during because hours because the shop is tiny it may be difficult to get a chair. However, takeout is extremely popular and people line up to purchase some of these lovely cakes.In fact, judging by how picked over the cakes were I think it is best to go early if you plan on having a wide selection to choose from.
If you are interested in another cafe Sid and I checked out you should read about our experience at Bed Cafe, which you can find here.
