Sulbing (설빙), Hongdae (홍대)

It was very hot and humid during my recent long layover in South Korea. In one of those days, all I wanted was to sit in an air conditioned space and have something sweet. I particularly craved for anything mango that day. 

Honestly, Sulbing (설빙) did not instantly come to my mind. I was initially heading to Mango Six but decided to change my mind and go to Sulbing instead. The main reason why I decided to go to Sulbing instead was to give Sulbing a second chance. Let's just say, I was not impressed with the first Sulbing bingsu that I had during my first visit to South Korea.

Sulbing, Hongdae was jam-packed during my visit. I was so lucky that I got a seat but obviously, it was not the best seat in the house. Cannot blame the other customers for having the same idea as me to go to Sulbing, cause it was really hot and humid that day. But then, Sulbing, Hongdae is quite small. So, there's that.


A note for myself, I felt a little bit out of place at that time cause everyone came with his/her boyfriends/girlfriends/friends, while I came alone. #foreveralone

Mango Cheese Snowflakes Sorbet

I ordered Mango Cheese Snowflakes Sorbet cause I was craving for anything mango. But I have to say, if I did not crave for anything mango, I might order Yogurt Tong Tong Melon cause they only serve melon bingsu in summer. Anyway, I was glad I decided to give Sulbing a second chance cause Mango Cheese Snowflakes Sorbet was quite okay! It was not as sweet as I expected. Maybe because I did not pour the condensed milk. The cheese also did not make me feel nauseous, which was a plus point :)

The only thing that I did not really like was the choice of mango. lol! I read somewhere they used apple mango. I am not used to eating apple mango so it was quite hard for me to eat the mango chunks at first. But fret not, the apple mango tasted okay and just nice :) It was just my personal preference.

I personally might go to Sulbing again if I had a chance, just for the sake of trying other bingsu flavors. Hopefully, I will not go alone in the future, insya Allah. haha! :D

    1. I think the bingsu is quite big kalau seorang je makan. They usually share with other people. I took quite some time to finish off the bingsu :)

    1. I haven't try any other bingsu so could not make a fair comparison. Ni bukan harga standard ke? Ada yang murah lagi ke?
