A quick post before I go for dinner. Been very hungry and very tired lately, thanks to the unproductive half of the month. The last few days especially really takes the toll on me so after doing my work i.e. writing out my thesis, I would have zero energy for anything else but sleep. That explains my neglect of this blog of mine:(
Oh, today Malaysia just implemented GST! So how are things working for you?
Keep calm and pay on
Anyway, this was about a month back when Rebecca came up and we tried a new bingsu cafe! Not very long ago, this rave for bingsu started when Cafe Bene came over from Korea if I've not mistaken. Then this Korean cafe, Dal Komm Coffee at Uptown Damansara continued the bingsu hype.
Not long after, about a month or two ago I noticed another new bingsu cafe in Uptown Damansara!
SS21/35 Uptown Damansara
Outside Bingsu Cafe
Self service so you will need to place your order at the counter
The place was empty when we stepped in. We went there on a Tuesday evening around 8pm and the place was empty, well except for us and a couple that came in with us. Somehow an empty shop gives me the impression that the place serves lousy food:S
Anyway, the couple went ahead placing their orders while Reb and I stood next to the ice- cream fridge, contemplating which bingsu to get. While we were standing there, there was this worker who took out a fly beater and started smacking around!
Guess what happened next? I think she managed to smack the fly and the dead fly somehow fell into the ice- cream area. OH MY GOSH. My mouth dropped wide open when I saw her laughing it off while cheekily telling her friend.
Wanted to exit right away but didn't want to disappoint Reb who came all the way from JB, so I just hoped that our bingsu wouldn't be contaminated:S
Placed order and was given a buzzer to notify when our orders are ready for pick up.
I was so hard deciding what to get because firstly I was rather turn off by what I saw prior to ordering. Secondly, the prices were rather expensive if compared to Dal Komm. Somehow the likely choices were prices too high, around RM18?
I didn't want to pay that much for a likely contaminated dessert so I went with the cheaper range bingsu. I think it was about RM15.90.
Mango Cheese Bingsu, RM15.90 if I've not mistaken.
The first thing I said to Reb was...
"OMG, is that the ice- cream from the ice- cream fridge that a dead fly just landed in???"
Reb was so chill and answered, "Ya la" HAHAHHA
Despite all that hoo-haa, I actually liked Bingsu Cafe's bingsu! The ice was shredded really finely and it was alternated with layers of cheese powder inside! The mangoes were very sweet and fresh so that deserved a thumbs up! Overall, it wasn't too sweet so it went well with my palate.
The cheesecake was a little too frozen though and it has this rather cheesy rotten smell. Not too sure if it's because its the type of cheese that they use for the cake (certain cheese does smell rotten) or because it was getting stale.
Reb still prefered Dal Komm's bingsu but I think this place is worth the try if you have extra cash to spend and if you can't take overly sweet things like me.
Easily missed signboard, at least for me HAHA
