Korean Bingsu – How Long Will The Trend Last?

Bing Su Trend

When bingsu first hit the shores of Singapore, that few pioneering outlets saw snaking queues every day for months.

For the uninitiated, bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert. It often comes in a sharing bowl; the shaved ice may or may not be flavoured, and piled with toppings on top such as fruits and nuts.

Perhaps this was because Singaporeans have a tendency to follow where the crowd goes or maybe it was just that innate willingness to queue for food. After all, “if there is a queue, it must be good,” right?

However, would you go out of the way to satisfy your craving for a sweet ice treat or really, do you still have a craving for bingsu? Is the Korean bingsu trend still alive and how long will it last?
