Despite being just a stone’s throw from Sean’s current place, I’d never actually noticed this 24-hour Korean dessert joint open up along Luk Tong Avenue which is just around the bend from the popular Cheong Chin Nam stretch of eateries.

But we had a sugar craving after work one day, and so I headed down with a bunch of colleagues to get our late night Bingsu fix.

Overall: ★★★☆  Decent place for 24-hour desserts
Price: $

Let’s start with the hot favourite among the 8 of us — the Injeolmi Bingsu.

Injeolmi is basically soybean flour and doesn’t have strong taste on its own. But somehow paired with a light shaved ice, topped with sweet, chewy mochi and a generous topping of sliced, roasted almonds. It was absolutely heavenly when drizzled with condensed milk. This was really quite a hit. It’s also apparently the cafe’s top-selling Bingsu. Definitely a unique choice.

And then, we went for this mountain of fruity goodness — the Premium Strawberry Bingsu.

The ice-cream on an already sweet bingsu is not entirely necessary, definitely makes it a bit more decadent. This was exactly as you’d expect it to be. Light, vanilla flavoured shaved ice, topped with fresh strawberries, a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream, and that saccharine sweet condensed milk.

Frozen strawberries and cream.

Our next choice was this Choco Banana Bingsu.

It’s showered with milo powder, sliced fresh bananas, topped with smooth vanilla ice-cream, almonds and drizzled with a rich, buttery caramel sauce. Again, pretty standard, and you really can’t go wrong with chocolate and banana.

Overall, I’d say it was a pleasant experience. Apart from the Injeolmi, the other desserts were pretty predictable. It was mostly nice having an air-conditioned place to stuff our faces with sugar in the wee hours of the morning. And for that I say, this was a neat discovery.
