Warm apple tart with real vanilla ice cream? Mmm …

Filed under: food — extrakorea @ 11:13 am

It seems that there is a place, Gateaux et M’amie, located in Seoul, Hongdae to be exact, where you can get warm apple tart with real vanilla ice cream.

The tarte tatin (6,500 won, $5.20), or upside-down apple tart, is served with homemade vanilla ice cream. The layers of the warm, puffy pastry were crisp, and the aroma of the caramelized apples on top of the tart was irresistible.

The ice cream actually tastes like real vanilla – you can even see the flecks of vanilla bean inside. The vanilla is a wonderful compliment to the crispy texture of the pastry and the fruity sweetness of the caramelized apple. It can be eaten alone, but the portion was so small that I wanted several more scoops.

Except for the part about the small portions, it sounds like a place that I will just have to hunt down the next time in that area.
