Monster Cupcake

Restaurants Itaewon

Gyeongnidan has been home to this small cupcake shop since the beginning of the area’s popularity around 5 years ago. It's got rough walls, furry spiders, huge model of E.T. sitting outside and all the small accessories crowing the space inside this extremely small store. By its look, it didn't seem clear as to what I should expect, but once I found the cute, monstrous cupcakes displayed in the small counter, I couldn't wait to find out which flavors each crazy decoration came with. 


The most popular menu here is the Red Velvet topped Hotel Transylvania’s very own fat mummy, the Tiramisu decorated with an RIP grave and lastly the Apple Cinnamon holding a jack-o-lantern the top. The one I was most pleased with is the Halloween special Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter cupcake. Its artificialness you'd feel at your first bite may lower your expectation, but once you dig in, the mixture of the the bread's soft texture and the flavorful icing is a delightful surprise. Perfectly sweetened, the cupcakes make a fun dessert for kids while adults would also appreciate the delicate flavors within.
