8 Korean Bingsu In Singapore That Will Transport You Back to Korea

Snowy village injeolmi bingsu

Bingsu is a popular Korean dessert which first started with ingredients primarily comprising of ice shavings, condensed milk, Korean rice cake and occasionally topped off with dollops of red bean or other similar fillings.

We can now find various renditions of this Korean dessert with toppings such as fruits, ice cream and even cheesecakes to suit the taste buds of many. This simple yet genius creation has captured the hearts of many Singaporeans, crowned as the perfect solution to bring the heat down.

That said, we have combined a list of the 8 Korean Bingsu in Singapore You Must Try. It is highly advisable to drag your friends or loved ones with you because the servings are usually huge, and more importantly, we believe that the best things in life should be shared.

Binggojung Injeolmi Bingsu


Located at Guillemard Village, Bing Go Jung is one of the first Bingsu cafes to arrive in Singapore. This dessert house has since set the trend of serving authentic Korean Bingsu that will do the hype justice.

Their Injeolmi Bingsu (S$11) remains the best seller with finely shaved ice topped with soy powder, Korean rice cake, almond slices, and comes with an additional serving condensed milk – a dessert experience you will not and may never want to forget.

Chick n ken Thai iced tea bingsu


Other than serving mouth-watering Korean Fried Chicken, Chick and Ken also serves up beautiful bowls of Bingsu with a twist – the syrup comes in syringes, so that you can add in as much as you like, depending on your preferred levels of sweetness.

The Korean ice shavings here at Chick and Ken are coarser with slight similarities to our local Ice Kachang. We suggest you opt for their Cha-Yen Bingsu (S$12.90), an amalgamation of Thai and Korean flavours with honeyed Cornflakes, homemade Red Rubies and Thai Tea Agar.

Cafe Insadong Sweet Potato Bingsu


Finally, a cafe in Singapore that serves Bingsu affordably priced less than S$10! Even though prices are slightly cheaper, Cafe Insadong is always more than generous with their serving portions. Many people flock to the cafe for their famed Sweet Potato Patbingsu (S$9.80) with rice cakes sufficiently stuffed with sweet bean paste, sugared nuts and sweet potato mash to accompany the ice shavings. We have to say this bowl is a pretty photogenic one, huh?

This is undoubtedly one of the best Bingsu cafes in Singapore. Also known as “snowflake” in Korean, Nunsongyee has literally lived up to its name with their thinly shaved ice which has beckoned patrons to go back for more. Some of the signature Bingsus include their Black Sesame Bingsu (S$18.90) with black sesame powder, almond flakes, red bean paste and topped with Korean rice cakes which piqued our interests with its wondrous melt of flavours.

If you are heading to town, do swing by Nunsaram. Conveniently located at Orchard Central, it prides itself as the go-to cafe for desserts or simply a place where friends can hang out after a meal.

Most of the Bingsu in the cafe are presented with a scoop of ice cream sitting glamorously atop the pile of ice. We heard that they use fresh ingredients for every serving of Bingsu – such as the Sweet Potato Bingsu (S$12.90), where the purple paste is acquired from the sweet potato root itself.

O'ma Spoon Patbingsu


Oma Spoon is a clear winner for us. Having their Bingsu was akin to eating snowflakes with a melt-in-your-mouth texture that all of us approved. Their Patbingsu (S$12.80) did the phrase “less is more” justice. We were in awe of how a classic Bingsu that was served in just sweet azuki beans atop milk ice shavings could rock our worlds with its heavenly medley of textures and flavours.

The Bingsu at Snowman Desserts are bound to catch your attention, with highlights such as their Melon Bowl Bingsu (S$14), that is served beautifully in a melon bowl with finely carved balls of fruits, then topped with a delicious soft serve ice cream and condensed milk served on the side. We suggest you pour the condensed milk with discretion as it might get a little cloying for some.

Toms and Toms is a Korean coffee chain tucked at the secluded premises of Tanjong Pagar, with K-pop tracks playing all day long and caring Korean staff waiting on you. Their Yoghurt Cheesecake Bingsu (S$12.80) had an interesting fusion of flavours, with cheesecake toppings and delicate yoghurt ice flakes melting almost immediately in our mouths. The cafe opens as early as 7am, and also offers Free WiFi – much to our delight.
