Today's review is about a Korean bingsoo place! This week, I went to Wel Bingsoo located at Ruko Madison Square, Kota Wisata, Cibubur. It is a new restaurant specialized in Korean food and dessert (bingsoo). For those who don't know, bingsoo is a popular dessert in East Asia (I know it from Korean dramas 😂). It is composed of ice shavings with various ingredients / toppings such as sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, jelly, cereal flakes, various fruits such as melons, strawberries, kiwi, etc and it is often topped with ice cream. People usually eat it during summer season, which is perfect because Indonesia is a tropical country that feels like summer everyday hahaha.
The place is divided into 2 floors, but when I went there the second floor wasn't available because they didn't turn on the air conditioner but it is understandable since there weren't many people at that time (only 2 tables served). Also, the service is great there are 2 waiters and 1 cashier when I went there.
Apart from bingsoo, Wel Bingsoo has other menus such as Korean style toast, bibimbab, kimbab, bulgogi rice, japchae, and other Korean dish. I just ate lunch at other place when I went to Wel Bingsoo so I didn't get to order many things. But here we go:
IDR 30,000 | 5.0 / 5
One of the most famous Korean street food. I love it! I guess this is what real Korean tteokbokki is.. After having good and bad experience in tteokbokki, I can say that this one taste good. There are tteokbokki (rice cake), fishcake, carrots, and onions cooked with seasoning resulting in sweet and salty taste. I choose the one with no egg by the way. I think it would be better if they have cheese tteokbokki as a choice.
Strawberry Cheesecake Bingsoo
IDR 45,000 (large) / IDR 30,000 (regular) | 4.0 / 5
The bingsoo taste good. I loooovvveee the vanilla-milk ice cream on top, like I could eat a bowl of it. But, the strawberries are sour.. I hope they could serve sweet ones instead. The portion is big so it is worth it, I recommend you to choose the large one.
Korean Iced Coffee
IDR 15,000 | 4.0 / 5
At first, I'm afraid they will serve us coffee sachet.. But no, in my opinion it is made with real coffee beans :) I once ordered iced coffee in other Korean-style restaurant and they give me instant coffee sachet - I knew the taste, I drink that brand often lol.
I want to come back again to taste their toast, kimbab, and other bingsoo - the green tea one seems interesting. Right now, the only information you can get is from their Instagram @welbingsoo and Go-Food page. Anyway, please note that this is not a sponsored post, I just went there and the place + the food is good so I post it 😀 See you on my next post!
