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