Binsu

This is a new place which is offering shaved ice desserts with the base of Korean milk with toppings, in an amateur way you can say that its Korean gola ganda. They have two varieties of matcha, one is the tradition with red bean paste and another one is with chocolate. Definitely the winner is a traditional one with red bean paste. The sweetness of red beans cuts the bitterness of matcha and gives a fascinating flavor when you take this to mouth.  This matcha-heaven have a topping of matcha-whipped cream too.
