Another sweet treat to add to list, Cocohodo serves up some fresh pastries and mesmerizing teas.
Cocohodo is a walnut pastry shop franchise with locations across the country but you'll only find two in Texas -- one in Carrollton and one in Houston.
Tucked away in Carrollton's "Little Korea" near George Bush and Old Denton Rd. is where you'll find the shop.
The brand has been serving Korean desserts for over 70 years and every location has something different to offer.
Cocohoda does use walnut as one of their main ingredients in many pastries so if you have a nut allergy, the pastries are probably not for you. No worries, you can always indulge in one of their butterfly teas or coffees instead.
Everything is made to order and it's worth the few minute wait.
The most unique thing they serve (and that you've probably seen on Instagram) are their fish-shaped cones. The batter, made from taiyaki mix batter, is poured right into the mold as soon as you place your order, left to cool for a few minutes and then filled with an ice cream of your choice and finished with a variety of toppings.
Another popular item is their "butterfly tea." The all-natural teas are brewed fresh daily and poured with care to create a picture-perfect photo opp. They make looks sweet, but looks are deceiving.
This place is perfect for a date night or the occasional sweet tooth craving.
