O'ma Spoon Korean Dessert Cafe
O'ma Spoon, a original dining concept developed in Korea, is Singapore's first contemporary Korean dessert cafe franchise. Major ingredients are imported directly from Korea, and they offer a variety of healthy Korean desserts. O'ma Spoon's specialties include Milk Snow Bingsu and Oven Baked Thick Honey Butter Bread, which are very popular in Korea.
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!
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!
