Today I went to check out a cafe for cheesecake fans in Dongdaemun called C27 (Dongdaemun Branch).
C27 is a cafe operated by a famous theme park company where you can taste 27 different types of cheesecakes followed by beautiful interior that everyone and especially women enjoy.
The Dongdaemun branch of C27 I visited today was located at the Hyundai City Outlet right next to Dongdaemun DDP making it easy to find and a perfect place to come rest after shopping next door.

When I first arrived at the Dongdaemun branch the sofa's colored in various colors caught my eye right away.
The sofa's were designed by C27 and aside from being really pretty it was also really comfortable making me think that they put a lot of detail into the interior design focusing on the cafe acting as a rest spot as it is located inside a Shopping Mall.
It is said C27 is operated by a Theme Park company and the interior inside the cafe is decided by a Theme Park Design Specialist.
This is why there are a lot of places all around the cafe that will catch your attention right away.
This place is a photo zone that is loved by a lot of customers here at the Dongdaemun Branch.
Just like you can see in the photo the environment around it is so pretty that there is also a lot of filming that happens here.
C27 which is famous for its cheese cakes sells them in three forms with the normal CAKE, a BITE you can eat in one bite, or a JAR that has the cheesecake inside.
The Cheesecake I ate today was the BITE which just like the name is a cheesecake you can eat in one bite.
There are 16 types of BITE's and they each have been named by the taste or name of the cheesecake used making it easy to identify.
The BITE that I enjoyed the most today was the Strawberry Red Velvet.
With this name, you can see that it is coated on the outside with a strawberry cookie crunch and filled with a red velvet cheesecake on the inside.
The straightforward names describing each BITE will make it easy for you to choose out of the 16 types that are available.
The BITE is refrigerated for fresh storage so it is best if you let the BITE defrost for around 5-10 minutes and then eat it to enjoy the best taste.
It is said it gives the best taste when the outside of the chocolate is slightly melted.
Other bakeries have soft cheesecakes but the cheesecakes of C27 have a high cheese content making it feel more hard which is enjoyed by Korean cheesecake fans.
Regular bakeries make no.4 cakes with a 24cm long diameter but C27 makes no.2 cakes with a 18cm long diameter which might make you feel as if the cake is smaller than other places.
However, if you actually try it you will feel full and the taste coming from it will give you a higher satisfaction that other cakes.
I also contemplated how many BITE's I should order due to it's small size, but I due to the high cheese content I was able to feel full after just 3 BITE's.
Also all 16 types of BITE's are made with the best combination from the best ingredients making it so that there is no chance for any of the 16 to taste bad at all.
As I ate the BITE I thought that it looked good and tasted good making it perfect as a present and just like I thought I could see a lot of people packaging the bites and taking it home.
In the case of the BITE if you refrigerate it, it is possible to store it for over a week.
Don't forget that it is best to eat the bite after letting it defrost for around 5-10 minutes!
Strawberry Red Velvet
Strawberry Cookie Crunch, White Chocolate, Red Velvet Cheese Cake
When taking a single bite, the strawberry cookie crunch and the red velvet cheesecake coated with white chocolate make a perfect combination with the faint strawberry smell being spread in my mouth.
Because I thought that this taste was popular taste everyone could enjoy, I enjoyed this BITE the most out of all the BITE's I tried today.
Roast Coconut Tiramisu
Roasted Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Tiramisu Cheesecake
In the case of the Roast Coconut Tiramisu, the crunchy crust from the roasted coconut and the chocolate coating make a good combination creating an enjoyable crunch and taste.
Blueberry Cookie Crunch, White Chocolate, Tiramisu Cheesecake
The color is pretty with a taste that should be liked by the majority of the people eating it.
If you hard having a hard time choosing which BITE to eat from the wide variety of choice available, I recommend that you choose the Blueberry Tiramisu.
This is a drink with mascarpone cheese and a shot of espresso making it possible to taste the sweet and soft latte as well as the rich taste of cheese at the same time.
(Possible to add additional Espresso shots)
I ate the Cheesecake and the Cheese Latte and I thought that I could taste the rich taste of cheese in each of them making it an enjoyable time.
If you are a fan of Cheese, I highly recommend that you come to C27 and try the combination of the Cheese Latte with the BITE or the CAKE.
