Craving some bingsu but on a tight budget? Gangnam Bingsu serves original Korean snowflake milk bingsu that will not burn a hole in your wallet! A bowl of bingsu from typical cafés would usually cost you an expected damage of almost S$20, but at Gangnam Bingsu, you get to enjoy a bowl bingsu at prices as low as S$5.90.
This bingsu shop located in multiple Kopitiams in Singapore serves classic bingsu flavours—including injeolmi, oreo banana and choco brownie. But what distinguishes Gangnam Bingsu apart from mainstream bingsu stalls is definitely their price point—with portions substantial enough to fill you up and even for sharing, the prices are crazily affordable!
Most of us would expect sub-standard quality food for something as cheap as this, but we were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the bingsu at Gangnam Bingsu was. Their shaved ice had a subtle milky taste incorporated into it and its soft texture made every spoonful of bingsu smooth and enjoyable.
We tried their Matcha Bingsu (S$8.90 for small, S$10.90 for large) and it certainly did not disappoint! Topped with a scoop of matcha ice cream, red bean, as well as a generous shower of matcha powder, we found it comparable to the ones you’d get at mainstream Korean dessert cafés.
Their Kaya Bingsu (S$5.90 for small, S$7.90 for large) took us by surprise as well. The crunchy biscuit topping complemented the sweetness from the red bean, and the chewy bits of mochi made this sweet treat even more enjoyable!
We love how despite its affordability, the quality of their desserts at Gangnam Bingsu did not fall short of our expectations. Prices range from S$5.90 for a small portion and the most expensive large portion costs only S$10.90. Gangnam Bingsu offers more than 10 flavours so you’d be spoilt for choice.
For affordable and satisfying bingsu indulgence, this place is a must-try.
