First bingsu experience at Coreon Gate

Bingsu places have been cropping up a lot lately, driven by Pinoys’ love affair with all things Korean.  Bingsus are Korean desserts which consist of finely shaved ice, sweetened condensed milk, bits of fruits or sweets and topped with ice cream or frozen yoghurt.  It can even be described as the Korean version of our very own halo-halo.

After lunch at our favorite kebab place in Metrowalk, Hubby suggested getting dessert at the newly opened Corean Gateoutlet in the area.  It occupies a two-story store with a lot of seating.  Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, the interiors get a lot of natural light which plays well with the stores minimalist decor.  Dark wood furniture are arranged in straight lines throughout the resto, but the overall feel of the place is given a fresh and fun character by the greens and bric-a-bracs that dot the place.

I got the kids their own Banana Milk, apparently a favorite Korean drink, according to my K-expert daughter.  I opted to order for sharing an Injealmee Snowflake (Php168) a bingsu flavored by bean powder and given texture by thin almond slices and bits of chewy teok or  Korean rice cakes.  I like how it is not so sweet as well as how the smoothness of the finely shaved ice plays with the almond slices and rice cakes.

Next time I’m here, I’ll try the Tteokbokki, Spicy Pork Bulgogi as well as the dessert cakes.

This Coreon Gate branch is located inside the Metrowalk Complex along Meralco Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
