Café Seol Hwa
Noah’s Place, 330 Aguirre Ave. cor Tehran Sts.
BF Homes, Parañaque
Even when we were still dating, the hubby and I would often have study dates for graduate schoolwork, or work dates for, well, work. He would bring his laptop and I would bring mine, and we would burrow in our own to-do lists before we rewarded ourselves with an actual date (usually a movie or a food binge). We still go on work dates today if work needs to get done on a weekend (this thankfully isn’t often). So, we keep a substantial list of coffee shops or cafes which are conducive for getting things done. We’re happy to have found another “workmode” date place in Café Seol Hwa inside BF Homes.
Café Seol Hwa is located on the Second Level of Noah’s Place, a building along Aguirre Avenue. It’s very near Club Bambino (see post here). There were quite a bit of customers when we went, which was mid-afternoon on a holiday. It seems the place has a lot of patrons of its desserts. We had just finished a big meal before going there though, so we just ordered drinks.
The interiors are nice, and the place didn’t feel too cramped. There were some sockets available on one side of the café and we were lucky to have gotten a table near one since we needed to plug in. The place has free wifi too.
But what earned Café Seol Hwa a spot in several dessert features is their bingsu. Bingsu is a popular Korean dessert of shaved ice with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup, etc. There are already quite a number of bingsu places, but Café Seol Hwa is known for serving some of the best.
We’ll definitely try the bingsu and toasts next time.
