The bingsu resembles soba noodles thanks to a generous helping of vermicelli-shaped fruit puree ladled on top of a mountain of shaved ice.

Depending on how sweet you want your Mont Blanc bingsu to be, you can either drizzle all the compote over it or add small amounts to the ice as you work your way through.
