Hi Everyone! This is Midori from MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s Editorial Department!

Did you know that oreo desserts are popular in Korea? If you’re a big fan of Korea and oreos, then I’ve got great news for you: You can enjoy both these things in Tokyo, too! More and more Korean cafés are releasing oreo ice creams and oreo bingsu (Korean shaved ice desserts). You can find these cafés in Harajuku…but why not go all out and visit Tokyo’s biggest Korea town Shin Okubo?  

 

One Korean-style dessert that I really can’t get off my mind is the Oreo Cheesecake I had at CAFE de BINGSU. That day, I left Shin Okubo station and headed down the main street called Okubo-dori. This is where I encountered CAFE de BINGSU. 

There was a sign inside the building that pointed me in the right direction. I tackled those stairs to the 2nd floor.

Look at that neon sign!!

Once I entered, I was immediately greeted by a cuddly bear. When you visit, make sure you get a photo together! ♡

The illumination of the café is soft and beautiful. ♡ Whichever seat you take, your photos will always look good. I made my way over to the counter quickly to place my order.

Soooo cute!!

An oreo cookie with a face! Under the oreo cookie is a generous mountain of oreo cream cheese. It’s just so cute I can’t eat it…

 

…Oops I did.

 

This was like an enhanced luxury oreo. The oreo cream cheese was full of flavour that no oreo fan would be able to resist. The cheese flavour was very pronounced yet not overpowering and the aftertaste was very refreshing. Although this cheesecake is full of rich flavors, it was easy to eat without feeling any regret.

 

It’s not just the Oreo Cheesecake at CAFE de BINGSU that you should try, however. The bingsu, drinks, in fact the whole menu is mouthwatering. You can order your food and drinks to go and enjoy them whilst strolling the streets, but the café’s atmosphere is just so wonderful… I recommend taking a break inside to make the most of your experience!
