It may seem rather unusual to go for the flavorful Korean Bingsu – a kind of shaved ice dessert with a variety of toppings and flavors – while you’re in Vietnam considering there’s so much to try within the Vietnamese cuisine itself.
In my defense, Ho Chi Minh city can get really warm and in the midst of all that walking under the hot weather, it is really a blessing to be able to bump into a cozy-looking Bingsu place and have some of that delicacy.
Bingsu World is located in district 3 of Ho Chi Minh city, where traffic starts to quiet down and streets are a lot more peaceful to walk in. The store itself is really quite a hidden gem and it’s not exactly the easiest to spot.
The dessert cafe itself is a beautifully light-filled space on the inside and a perfect place to chill out and recover from that sweltering heat while indulging in some soft and perfectly shaved ice dessert.
The variety of Bingsu here is huge and it’s especially nice that they come in different sizes so you can take your pick accordingly. Bingsu world also serves a small menu of various Korean food if you’re craving for some. Prices here are also really affordable.
