So if you remember a little while back Simon had a lonely ice cream FAPFAP…actually a STANK – aka SAD TIME ADVENTURE NOW KOREA – that he went on while I was in Canada. Even though I shouldn’t laugh, when I watch that video with all its epic failing I laugh really hard. If you haven’t seen Simon’s STANK check it out here and laugh at…I mean, with, him.

The reason I bring up his STANK is because he went for gelato at Gelati Gelati and after that he tried to go for ice cream at Fell + Cole. Unfortunately, it was closed down and Simon was devastated. Well, turns out they were moving locations AND opening up a second location in Apgujeong. So a couple months ago we stumbled upon them re-opening in the Hongdae area, just a few minutes away from their old location, and after visiting several times – purely for scientific testing of the ice cream, of course – we decided it was time to take you guise to Fell + Cole!

Okay, so, yeah…this is some of the best ice cream we’ve actually ever had, ever. Not just in Korea, though. Like, the best ever. What’s amazing about it is that they make their ice cream daily and use fresh ingredients, AND they do it all in small batches, so visiting them in the afternoon could score you a flavour not available at night. Today we missed out on Drunken Salted Watermelon Sorbet because it was sold out by 5:00pm AND my all time favourite flavour, Grapefruit Champagne Sorbet was also gone. *SOBS* But isn’t there something great about not being able to always get what you want? I think knowing that the flavours are always changing makes it such an adventure, and I LOVE surprises and adventures! Even the day that we went to film I wasn’t sure what they’d have to offer and we were happily surprised with very unique Korea-oriented flavours. Normally I would go straight for a sorbet since I prefer lemon/lime/raspberry kind of flavours but I wanted to show you flavours that you probably can’t get in your home country. Nevermind, you can’t really get it IN Korea!

Besides having a totally awesome selection of flavours, the ice cream itself is made with natural ingredients and you can seriously taste the difference. It doesn’t have an overwhelmingly sweet taste or weird leftover flavour, and because it’s so rich you seriously can’t eat more than a cup, unless you’re Simon or my mom because she seriously loves ice cream. Hi mooommmmm! If you come back to visit me in Korea we must visit this place together!

Getting to Fell + Cole is a little complicated because it’s down a back alley. There are two different locations but we go to the Hongdae Main Store. Here is the simplest way to that store:

1. Go to Sangsu Station (line 6) and take Exit 1 and just walk straight.
2. Turn right on your first street, it’s not a big main road, it’s just a side street.
3. The street will split left and right but just stick right and you’ll hit Fell + Cole in a few minutes.

It’s about a 10 minute walk from Sangsu Station, not that far at all! I’ve also included the business card with their little map, and check out their facebook page to find out the flavour of the day.


So, yes, this FAPFAP isn’t necessarily Korean food related, but it’s summer and hot as hell, so we used this as an excuse. The thought of eating hot soups at the moment is just stifling, so…ICE CREAM! We were actually about to film another video today and thought “hey, what kind of OTHER ice cream should we eat” but I’m worried we’re just going to over-indulge in it just because it’s summer.

Also, there was another flavour that we hinted at in the video but didn’t talk about much: the Perilla Leaves flavour, which was…interesting. You can see us talk about it more in the bloopers/deleted scenes below:


And, lastly, you should click on this pretty button here to see us geek out over more Korean food in the future. Also, I know we haven’t done a FAPFAP in a while, but we’ve just filmed one recently, and it’ll go up next week, plus we have another big road trip planned for the end of August. Yeah!

  1. Thank you for another great FAPFAP! :)


  2. Hey guise did you know who also LOVES Fell+Cole??~
    This was taken early June. Apparently Dara thinks they have the best ice cream in Korea as well because she took her friends Aimee Lucas, Marshall Bang and Riley Tolett there.. :D

  3. This is totally random, but HELP ME! I have to teach one lesson to a couple of middle school aged girls and any teaching tips are very appreciated! Also, I get really really really nervous when public speaking (I’m too quiet), any tips on that are also appreciated :) I’m sorry for being off topic but I thought since Simon and Martina were teachers that posting this here would help.

    By the way, LOVE this FAPFAP:) I like ice cream, enough said.

  4. It’s funny you chose this particular FAPFAP, as I was just hired at a Gelatoria.
    New job means taste test everything right?… FOR SCIENCE!!!!! XP

  5. How much was the ice-cream? I’d like to go there now that I’m in Korea for 1 month!

  6. How crazy and kinda random, yay San Franciscans doing us proud!

    Also how is there not a line out that door…I would rampage this place all the time….kinda like my fave ice cream shop in SF which I never stand in the crazy long hour line for because I know the ultimate secret to achieve ice cream in my hands immediately…muwhaha.

  7. I was curious about this, too. I plan on attempting to find this place this weekend, and if I make it, I’ll post the pricing range for everyone else ^^

  8. Simon, when you have a pretty girl on your arm, you aren’t supposed to take off and leave her behind. Male Fail!

  9. I really wish they had shops like this in the states. WHY AREN’T THERE THINGS LIKE THIS. Basil ice cream? That sounds so cool!

  10. That would be pretty cool. I like Yu Jinyoung, and it would be cool to see some other artists as well. And to see how many artists are featured from Korea (rather than the US, Japan, China, Europe etc)

  11. This place reminds me a lot of Capogiro’s in Philadelphia. It is technically gelato and does similar things, where they rotate the flavors all the time. AND they even have a Basil Ice Cream which is awesome. I always mention it and people get super freaked out, but basil is closely related to mint, so it isn’t too crazy.

  12. Martina I want your ring. Scratch that I want all of your jewelry. GIVE IT TO ME /grabby hands

  13. Love how you guise tagged the blog post under “Hyuna” XD

  14. Martina’s nails!! Ever since singapore, do you mind putting up a tutorial, that is if you don’t have them done at a salon/nail bar, they are so cool!

  15. I’m asking a irrelevant question here: Have you guys found a new place to live yet?

  16. Hah! So it’s official, Martina does the commentary for ice cream and Simon does the commentary for sushi? ;)

  17. great, thanx guise. U make me wanna eat some ice-cream now…. n its 7 in the morning @A@ *runs off to market to buy plain ol` american ice-cream* TT TT

  18. You forgot to mention that Tristan speaks English! ;D

    • I think they did, didn’t they? when he was explaining something to them in the background, I think they said something along the lines of ‘The owner speaks English’

  19. whoa…for a second i thought i heard a police siren in the video…but then i took off my earphones and realised it’s here…as usual!!

    gah it looks so delicious!!! i want some!!

  20. Simon such an icecream hog haha

  21. Gastronomic is of or relating to gastronomy which is like the practice of making/eating good food. I think they just used the word as a way of saying “there are gonna be some weird flavors in here, yo”

  22. Anyway Gelato is the best!!! Where I live, there are lots of bars that make it wonderfully…indeed while I was watching I went to take one right away!

  23. I would have liked to see the owner’s face while Simon was singing and mimicking Hyuna’s ice cream…XD

  24. I love perilla leaves! more than I should, honestly. I have got to find that place…I hope they still have that flavor whenever I get around to going.

    I didn’t know places like this existed in Korea, thanks for the introduction!

    Now i’m salivating…..

  25. Whoooo, Little Mermaid!

    What fun flavors!! The closest I’ve gotten to unusual ice cream is a gelato place here that sells things like Earl Grey (which was awesome) and Lavender.

    Also, I continue to be impressed by your ability to find, and remember how to get to, anything in Korea. So many little back alleys, so few street names!

  26. Martina!!!! That song was from Beauty and the Beast!!!! oh, and the ice cream looks WONTABULOUS!

  27. I don’t know about sesame leaf flavored ice cream… I could see roasted sesame/tahini flavored ice cream

    When I was in Seville, I went to a similar place, and the worker made me try every kind of ice cream. Which sounds nice, especially if you like free food like me, but my palate was so confused and I got a stomachache by the end

    Other confusing things: I haven’t been able to get the image of Simon’s head on Hyuna’s dancing body out of my head since you BURNED IT INTO MY BRAIN. I’m pretty sure Simon as Hyuna has starred in a couple of my cheese-altered dreams

  28. Mandatory “Ice cream, ice cream, I melt you down like ice cream” comment.
    But that ice cream looks good. We have two of those shops in my town. When there is only a sliver of sun there are lines outside of the store. They get so much money from the spring and summer months they can afford to be closed for most of autumn and winter.
