Fish-shaped waffle cone
Ever heard of the Korean carp cakes called bungeoppang? Similar to the taiyaki in Japan, bungeoppang is the Korean variation of the iconic carp-shaped dessert and at Aboong, it’s served as a cone for frozen yoghurt.
The infusion of multiple tastes, textures and the novel presentation caused a food trend that previously took Korea by storm. At Aboong, they put premium yoghurt ice cream inside its gaping mouth and a sweet filling at the bottom of the cone. Chocolate sauce, biscuit crumbs and a skewer of chocolate-covered fruits are then added on top. The waffle cone is slightly crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside, which goes perfectly with the creamy soft yoghurt ice cream – a dessert within a dessert.
As for the filling, kids can choose from three flavours – red bean, custard cream and Nutella. We tried red bean and Nutella, which was an unexpectedly perfect combination of flavours. With the freedom to choose your own toppings and fillings, this carp-shaped dessert is like a cute empty canvas for you to create whatever exotic flavour takes your fancy.
