Review Summary:

Okay, now we're getting into serious territory with Korean bakery-cafes.  Passion5, on the Hannam side of Itaewon, is a massive gourmet bakery with a German touch on the first floor.  The second floor is a posh cafe that delivers extraordinary food.  It's pricey, but this time the quality matches the price.  The thing to get is the Chocolate Choux--a large cup of real hot chocolate that you drink in three stages.  Stage one: sip.  Stage two: toss in a chocolate bon bon.  Stage three: wash out the remnants with your choice of kirsch or rum served in large eyedroppers.  This cup o' choco costs W10,000 but is a full dessert.  Also try the Mediterranean inspired fare.  The Vegetable Terrine is delicate and petite but a power punch of flavor.

UPDATE: I'm going to retract my initial enthusiasm for Passion5. They're showing more of a tendency to be pretentious with bad service and poor communication with the kitchen. It's now more about ostentatious displays of wealth and not about the food.
