[Pork-free] There’s a new bingsu spot in town! BINQ Dessert in the latest spot in Desa Sri Hartamas to get your fix of bingsu and milk tea.
Opened in early October, we enjoyed the desserts here at BINQ during our visit last week.
BINQ Dessert in Desa Sri Hartamas
We visited BINQ last Sunday after dinner.
Although the place was busy, we were able to get a spot immediately. We loved the bright interior, but the service was brighter thanks to the effeverscent attitude of the owners/staff. They were really happy to recommend the offerings on the menu and remained helpful despite it being a busy night.
BINQ Dessert offers bingsu and milk tea
BINQ Dessert’s menu is simple – they offer six types of bingsu and six types of milk tea drinks.
We actually do like the focused menu as it usually means that quality is not compromised.
BINQ offers six types of bingsu – White Peach Oolong (RM23), Roasted Soy Bean Oolong (RM23), Kumquat Jasmine (RM23), dark choc-based The Dark Knight (RM26), Hoji Cha Cha (RM26) and Matcha (RM26).
All six come with their own recommended toppings but you get to swap them for 14 different kinds of toppings.
These include brown sugar jelly, peach popping boba, taro balls, Milo-coated mochi, red bean and butter crisp.
We like that they provide an oat milk alternative for those who can’t tolerate lactose.
Roasted Soybean Oolong Bingsu
Despite the crowd, we got our bingsu relatively fast within 10 minutes.
We enjoyed the Roasted Soybean Oolong bingsu (RM23).
The texture of the shaved dessert was on-point as it was snow-soft and fluffy, and did not melt immediately serving. This meant that BINQ were using the right machine (and liquid) to make the shaved dessert. We recently had a terrible “bingsu” elsewhere so this was an important (and reasonable) expectation to meet in our books.
More importantly, the bingsu has quite a good Oolong tea flavour. The standard order comes with Kinako/injeolmi-coated mochi cubes, brown sugar jelly, butter crisp and whipping cream with kinako powder.
We thought the combination really worked well together with the lightly salted cream providing a nice counterpoint to the other elements. We also added red bean as we are suckers for old-school injeolmi bingsu.
Kumquat Jasmine is refreshing
For something more refreshing and citrusy, the Kumquat Jasmine (RM23) might be a good choice.
We found the kumquat’s tanginess overpowering the jasmine tea base – but it kinda worked well with the nata de coco, passionfruit popping boba, aiyu jelly. We did replace the boba with taro balls for something a bit more earthy.
We’ll return soon to try the White Peach Oolong and Hoji Cha Cha next.
