Sulbing (설빙): Eating our favorite Korean Dessert in Seoul, Korea - Bingsu (빙수) Korean shaved ice travel good video:
So for today's video we are at a place called Sulbing (설빙) and this is a popular chain in Korea that specializes in frozen desserts (디저트). We're going to be trying something that is quite similar to Patbingsu (팥빙수) and Patbingsoo (팥빙수) is a shaved ice dessert with red beans. But we're having Sulbing (설빙) which is actually frozen milk that has been shaved into these little snowflakes so you get a much creamier dessert (디저트). And we've ordered two different varieties so those are coming up. Yeah, and the Sulbing (설빙) is basically your quintessential Korean summer dessert. Yes, and it is super hot out so we're cooling down with that right now.
So dessert (디저트) is here. Yeah. So I got the blueberry cheesecake Sulbing (설빙). So let's take a look at that. And before I even begin to talk about this. I've got to show you just how big this is with a sense of scale.
So the coolest thing that stands out to me aside from obviously how big it is is that there are real blueberries. Like look at this. Yeah. Real big thick blueberries. So that is going to be my first bite. And I'm going to get a piece of the cheese and the sauce here. Along with some shaved ice.
I sense a brain freeze coming up.
It is frozen. Frozen but you know what delicious.
The kind of topping they put on is also a glazed. A blueberry glaze. And it is similar to the glaze that you would put on a cheesecake. And then you get those nice big thick blueberries. And on top of that the refreshing-ness of the shaved condensed milk. The shaved ice. And then the big chunks of cheesecake. This is just a wonderful summer dessert. And you also have ice cream there. Yours is topped with ice cream. I'm a little jealous right now. Mine doesn't come with ice cream. Seriously guys this is like to beat the thirty five degree weather in Korea in August.
Okay, so mine is here as well. I ordered the chocolate brownie. I've had this one before. It is delicious. So why bother trying something new. Like when you walked in here you're like I'm getting the chocolate brownie.
Yeah. So let me give you a tour of the bowl. So basically you've got your shaved milk down here and all around you have chunks of brownie, cheesecake, brownie, cheesecake. And then you have whipped cream right here and it is all topped off with a chocolate powder and chocolate sauce. The cocoa powder as well too.
I almost feel like I want to let it melt a little bit and turn into a milkshake. Then mix it all together. That is how I like my Bingsu (빙수).
Which did you prefer? Chocolate brownie or blueberry cheesecake?
They're both really good but the blueberry cheesecake was like amazing.
Alright, so time for the price. How much did the Bingsu (빙수) cost?
So mine was ₩10,000 ten thousand Won (원). And yours was eight thousand five hundred ₩8,5000 Won (원) and so total 18,500. So you're looking at around seventeen US bucks. So not bad. We were a little greedy. We probably could have just got one I'd say. One would have been enough and we had Tteokbokki (떡볶이) for lunch so oooh. I have a bit of a gut bomb now. But if you want to cool off on a hot day in Korea definitely recommend this though. Alright, so tata.
