Dal.komm Coffee – The Ultimate DOTS Fan Cafe
If you’re an avid fan of Korean variety shows and dramas, you’d be familiar with Dal.komm Coffee. This cafe first made its appearance in episode 249 on Running Man before appearing a couple of times in the hit drama – Descendants of the Sun. The love story between a soldier and a doctor was so captivating that viewerships soared sky-high for this drama.
The highly remembered scene at Dal.komm Coffee must be in episode 2 of DOTS, where Kang Mo-Yeon and Yoo Shi-Jin broke up without having really been together. The other popular scene is in episode 6 where Dal.komm Coffee appeared as part of a flashback scene when Yoon Myeong-Joo and Seo Dae-Young were happily dating.
In the drama, Song Joong-Ki was seen drinking Welchester Ade Red, made with tangy calamansi, abundant in Vitamin C and comes in three different flavours (blue, red, green). However, we decided to go for sweeter drinks and desserts.
Strawberry Cube ($8.50) is on their special drinks menu. A blend of crushed strawberries, honey and milk gives you a smooth-tasting strawberry latte. It is topped with a few slices of strawberry fruits. The first sip is plain sweetness but the refreshing note hits you at the end. The strawberry slices were slightly sourish, a good neutraliser to the sweet drink.
Sweet Potato Mixtur ($8) consists of a concoction of milk and sweet potato with ice, tailor-made to suit the health-conscious bunch. It’s not too sweet nor overly creamy. The drink is quite light and the subtle sweet potato flavour lingers in your mouth. You might not find the drink delicious at first sip but gradually, you’ll get used to the unique flavour and grow to love it after a couple of sips.
Don’t mistake this as a drink! The Mango Bingsu ($10.90 small size) consists of fine shaved milk. It was soft and fluffy but there wasn’t any mango cubes. It looked more like mashed mangoes or perhaps, mango puree. Its sweetness was overwhelming so the small size was just nice for us. For a healthier choice, you can also get the Cherry Tomato Bingsu.
Dal.komm also serves cakes and pastries, displayed attractively at the counters. It’s the first thing that caught our eyes upon entering this cafe. The Matcha Pie ($8) was very thick and rich. It might be too overwhelming for some people. The crust was disappointing though – texture’s a tad too soft and there’s no satisfaction from the usual crunch you get from pie crusts elsewhere.
The food and beverages are a little overpriced at Dal.komm cafe. But, if you’re a huge DOTS fan, the spacious cafe is actually quite a relaxing place to laze over the weekend, and it’s conveniently located in town.
