Korean Ice Kacang, they say. Well, that’s quite true. Korean Bingsu is a shaved ice dessert much like our ice kacang except, it’s slightly more trendy when we look at the ingredients.

So here are 12 places in Singapore you’ll be able to find Korean Bingsu!

Best Bingsu In Singapore

1. Chick and Ken

Chick and Ken (which we’ve already featured in the Korean Fried Chicken article. Click here to read it!) offers Injeolmi, the crowd’s classic where corn flakes meet rice cakes, and the Cha-Yen, a Thai-inspired bingsu, with its Thai tea elements and red rubies amongst other ingredients.

Remember to try its fried chicken too!

2. Nunsaram Korean dessert cafe

Nunsaram is located in Orchard Central and is usually packed with youths hanging out or studying during the weekend. But if you patient enough to snag a sit, then hurray! Time for some delicious bingsu.

This ‘Snowman’ cafe (because Nunsaram means Snowman in Korean) boasts a few flavours, all of them very, very, tasty!

3. Tom N Toms Coffee

I’m a huge mango fan so it was an incredibly easy choice for me to make. There were a few bigger chunks of ice on it but that’s alright. I actually love those chunks – gives some sort of texture to bingsus.

Also, try their French Toast and coffee!

4. Cafe Insadong

Cafe Insadong is one fine example of how ice kacang is lagging behind (although I appreciate how ice kacang is sticking to its roots!). Just look at this:

6. O’ma Spoon

O’ma Spoon is slightly expensive (being in Marina Square and all) and its flavours are the common ones, just like most of the other cafes mentioned here. Its Mango Cheese bingsu is interesting though. Because Cheesecake.

It’s a great place to just relax while you’re in Marina Square!

7. Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Cafe

Nunsongyee is a splendidly furnished cafe located in Burghley Dr (never heard of the road? neither did we.). It’s slightly tedious to get there, but don’t worry, it’s worth it.

Coffee bingsu with granola, nuts and even a shot of espresso! Caffeine dreamland.

8. One Ice Cafe

One Ice Cafe’s bingsu isn’t as expensive as many of the cafes listed here. Common flavours are available here plus chocolate banana bingsu, which is gorgeous and delicious! It reminds me of Spizza’s Zara pizza for some reason.

9. Bing Go Jung
