Their Injeolmi Bingsu is wonderful in an understated manner.
Every time I walk past this store, its always packed with people enjoying the snow-like dessert that is glorified ice kachang. But hey, no judgements man, I love pat bing su too!
One thing that sets O’ma spoon apart from other pat bing su cafes is their option for “petite” size, essentially a single-portioned dessert. My favorite flavour is their Injeolmi Bingsu, which features a nutty soybean powder that compliments the milk shavings perfectly well, creating a light dessert that literally melts in your mouth.
Prices for the normal-sized bowl of bing su start from $12.90, which is rather steep for shaved ice. However, the size is good for sharing and makes for a perfect dessert to have on a sweltering hot day!
Instant ice-cream in a bowl
I’ve gotten haters for comparing bingsu with our local shaved ice desserts, so… I’d reserve my comment. With my rating, you’d probably get what my stand is on bingsu though! This Korean dessert had been plastered all over my Instagram feed, and the snaps of friends attempting to pour condensed milk over their dessert, and failing, made me want to try it out for my own.
Although messy to pour, the condensed milk is the savior of this dessert - without it, bingsu tasted like dehydrated ice flakes. With it, though, I’d describe it as instant ice-cream. Word of advice: knock down the bingsu a little, then pour the condensed milk into the moat around the middle and mix it around. What follows is heaven.
The only downside would be that it’s quite expensive. But if I could afford it, I’d come here for dessert every time I’m in town!
