I think we all agree that living in Singapore means you have to survive the hot weather here. The scorching sun just makes me feel so lazy all the time. Just looking at the heat outside makes me want to stay home and do nothing.
It is also during this time when I want to indulge in cold treats such as ice cream, popsicles, local desserts like Ice Kacang and Cheng Tng. Apart from these treats, many would also indulge in Korean desserts like bingsu. There are plenty of bingsu cafes in Singapore. Let’s look at some of them.
One Ice Café
At One Ice Café, traditional Korean recipes are mastered and adapted to Singapore’s taste. The café offers a wide range of bingsu flavours for their customers. Located at several locations, One Ice Café is definitely a place to have a cold bowl of bingsu.
