Korea Town Shin Okubo’s Hottest Shaved Ice This Summer | Seoul Café

12.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

Hi, everyone. I’m Banako of MOSHI MOSHI Friends!

 

Shin Okubo is known as Japan’s Korea town, taking in all the current trends from Korea before anywhere else. It’s also become a hot spot for food and dining. Today, I’m here to show you the perfect thing to cool you down from the summer heat. I visited the Seoul Café to try their “Seoul Bingsu” which looks like a spool of thread. It’s looking to be the next big thing with its unique texture.

Seoul Café is located on the second floor of a building just a 5-minute walk from Shin Okubo Station.

It just opened in March of this year. Its interior is based on the colour white against white sits stylish decor. At this café you order at the counter. I went ahead and got the “Seoul Bingsu Mango” (¥1,300).

It comes with a huge slice of mango! And just like its name implies, it looks like thread. Using a fork to eat it feels fresh too, it’s a fun way to enjoy shaved ice.

The centre is packed full of fluffy shaved ice. It’s super soft and melts in your mouth, but since it’s packed tightly it’s satisfyingly filling. It’s easy to eat and has a unique texture. And if you eat it together with the mango it makes for an even tastier dessert♡

 

Seoul Café’s menu is full of Instagrammable desserts. In addition to the Seoul Bingsu there’s also Seoul Waffles and lots more.

 

If you’re passing through Shin Okubo on a trip to catch up with the latest in Korean pop culture then be sure to pay a visit to Seoul Café to try their Seoul Bingsu and experience a whole new kind of shaved ice.
