Chocolate cake that's worth the wait
I first tasted the minicake in 1997 at Nougatine in New York City, and as the warm chocolate lava slowly spilled over my dessert spoon, I knew I was falling in love. It has become a ritual for me to go back to Nougatine at least once a year to taste the harmony of tender cake and intense chocolate fondant and forget about the bad things that happened that year.
Mobssie gets its name from the Korean for “very much,” so people can say I am “Mobssie” fond of the cafe’s offerings.
The cafe serves a signature Mobssie coffee (4,000 won), and the jumbo bowl of mild coffee is a perfect match for the warm chocolate cake.
Mobssie’s interior screams that you are in Paris. The Tiffany-blue painted walls and frames of photos depicting France are adorable. There’s seating for about 20 people and I have never waited for a seat before, but last Saturday the joint was packed. While I was waiting for my cake to be baked, a queue formed outside.
Some things are worth the wait.
