Korean desserts are making quite a wave in Singapore. Nunsaram is one of the more popular chains with branches in Orchard Central, Westgate and Serangoon Gardens.
For a start, I personally think that Korean Desserts place a large emphasis on presentation. So much so that the actual eating of the Bingsu is, more often than not, an extremely cumbersome and messy affair.
The outlet at Serangoon Gardens was about 70% filled when I visited it on a Saturday evening at about 10 pm. A rather decent sized crowd considering it was already quite late in the evening. It is situated at one of the shophouses opposite My Village Shopping Mall. The place was clean and the place had a welcoming feel.
Firstly, Bingsu is never an affordable affair. A medium sized Strawberry Bingsu set me back $13.90 and a Choco Bread costs $8.90.
The Strawberry Bingsu was decently refreshing. You have the option to choose one of 3 bases, milk, yogurt or soy milk.
The Choco Bread, however, was not worth the exorbitant price. The bread was tasteless and cold. For $8.90 it was really horrible.
As with my previous trips to Korean Cafes, Bingsu is the only option you should consider ordering. It still perplexes me as to why such cafes bother trying to serve something that they are horrible at (a $1 bread with ice-cream from any ice-cream stall on wheels is so much better than Nunsaram’s Choco Bread) instead of focusing on what they are good at.
