Hanbing Korean Dessert Cafe proudly landed in Bangsar KL as the first bingsu cafe along Jalan Telawi 3, at the same time adding another option for dessert indulgence besides Eat Me Cafe, Dip n Dip, Jaslyn Cake and so forth.
We have been eyeing on this place since it opened last year but due to heavy traffic and lack of parking spaces in Bangsar, it stays in our must-visit dessert cafe list for quite some time. Finally paid a visit last weekend due to sudden craving of Korean bingsu. It was full house when we reached but thankfully, no queue needed. Hanbing cafe was clearly short handed, none of the staff had time to attend us. We took the menu on our own from the counter and managed to place our order after a while. Waited another 40 minutes for a bowl of Mango Bingsu.
Even though named shaved ice, Hanbing ‘s bingsu has a very dense, creamy base, like thick milk base ice-blended. Not the fluffy, snowy type like what we had back in Bingsu Cafe Uptown and Seoul. But still, a version that we love. Milky but not too sweet, helmed with fresh sweet mango cubes. Great for sharing but portion wise, Cafe Old School in Mont Kiara still scores high for its huge size.
Other bingsu selections in Hanbing includes Green Tea Red Bean Bingsu, Blueberry Cheese Cake Bingsu, Oreo Snow Ice, injeolmi Snow ice and Injeolmi Red Bean Snow ice. Saw The Igloo Melon bingsu which is offered for only limited time. Skipped because it is quite pricey at RM30 per bowl. Apart from Korean dessert, Hanbing menu also covers savoury food like Toppoki, baguette, Korean Honey Fried Chicken, Korean Deep Fried Squid, Kimchi Fried Rice, Japchae, Korean Cold Noodles, Bibimbap, Korean Pancake, Bulgogi Deobap and more. Wash down with smoothies, soda, coffee.
Overall, good bingsu but not exceptionally outstanding. Packed especially during weekend night. Waiting time is long due to the crowd, plus lack of staff in Hanbing kitchen. Need to be patient. Suggest to come with a group of friends, so that you have someone to chat with while waiting for your order to arrive.
