CAFETALY MALATE: Bingsu, Chimaek, Pimaek and more!

And I finally got my hands on bingsu! 

Patbingsu (팥빙수, also stylized as patbingsoo, literally red beans with ice) is a Korean shaved ice desser with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup and Azuki beans highly popular in Korea.This snack originally began as ice shavings with red bean paste It was traded among government officials. Many varieties of patbingsu exists in contemporary culture. source

Put simply, it's Korean halo-halo.  
I thought only Cafe Bene with only a few branches in Metro Manila offers it but two blocks away from the hostel is Cafetaly which sells breads, pastries, bingsu and even chimaek or chicken + maekju (beer).


Halo-Halo vs Bingsu

So what is the difference with halo halo? We are more playful and generous with our ingredients that we combine anything available and mix them, thus halo-halo (mix mix) but in the case of bingsu, flavors are distinct. If it is classic red bean (what we ordered) tiramisu, berry, name it, they have so many variations to choose from, at least in Korea. At Cafetaly, they have only three. One thing that makes bingsu a standout is the ice.

Now, which is better? Our halo-halo or patbingsu? I love our halo halo but I think patbingsu is way better. If only we can invest in good ice shavers so as milk and sugar in our halo-halo would taste finer and smoother. And if only Razon would increase the amount of condiments in their halo-halo. The latter could be at par with its Korean shaved ice brother.

They invest a lot on the shaver that the ice is as fine as you can get, almost the fineness of ice cream. And I heard they mix mix before they freeze their ice? This fine texture of the ice therefore makes the milk, sugar and other flavors blend well into the whole mix for an even and consistent taste. Makes me wonder, why can't big shops selling halo halo like Chowking or Razons invest in a better ice shaver? There, I said it again.

And I heard of Mr Park's Bread and Cake in Ortigas, they sell patbingsu too! Can't wait to try their bingsu soon. ^^

  2. The mini games include the favorites like Link, Mario and
    Yoshi,so make sure you try out the puzzle games, they are a lot of fun but tricky.
    This means you are not fixed at a certain position, like in Counter Strike.
    Or you could judge a game's success based solely off of
    its commercial success.

    However, this does not mean that they lack in knowledge and skill to operate a smaller aircraft,
    in fact, a private pilot can comfortably fly a
    plane from one airport to another. Each animal card comes with its own identifiable
    attributes too - like the warthog increases in ferocity when it's provoked
    or the snake can sneak in for advanced strikes.
