Other than the hipster cafe trend, I realize the current cafe scene circles around K-culture as well!!
Saw many rising Korean-styled cafes/bakery/restaurants that originated from Korea.
and one of them would be Caffe Bene, who brought one of Korea's most loved desserts into Malaysia -- the Pat Bingsu!
the cafe was under renovation, so there were limited spaces only
anyways, this cafe looks pretty much like a Starbucks outlet
lots of earth tone, sophisticatedly packaged snacks/coffee/tea/sweets
da whole concept is like Starbucks but Crushed-Ice version.
Green Tea Bingsu -- RM12.80
I know a dessert made of ice shouldn't cost that muchbut looking at the amount of healthy toppings it has, I guess it's worth it
love the super crunchy mix of nuts, that gives you the extra texture while u're munching through the ice
redbean, walnuts, almonds, macadamia etc
the ice, are coarsely crushed, like mini pebbles of ice, which gives an extra chill and crunch
the red bean paste is super yummy, naturally sweet
the whipped cream on top gives a mild sugary taste to the ice
the green tea ice taste great! not too milky or too bitter
It's a new trend in desserts!
Blueberry Yogurt Waffle -- RM13.00
while we were ordering, we saw the yummylicious display of gelato next to the cashier
wanted to have a waffle with gelato on itso we ordered the Blueberry Yogurt flavor gelato
But turns out, LOL, there's a special flavor of waffle which is called Blueberry Yogurt as well
so yea, instead of the gelato waffle, we end up having this "too damn healthy" waffle LOL
with blueberry sauce and original yogurt on top
yogurt was extremely sour, my mouth was watering non stop the moment i taste it
well though it was kinda hard to accept at first, but after a few bites, we agreed that it's a nice complement to the rather sweet Greentea Bingsu
Waffle is rather dense with slight crunch.
with Jingwen who love all things korean, just like me heheh
emo, 2 workers behind haha
I think Caffe Bene was successful as it's the pioneering cafe that brings in the unique-star Bingsu from Korea. With the super strong influence of K-culture, this cafe attracted so many youngsters, who wants to be part of the K-culture and also to try something new, unlike the usual coffee-and-cakes cafe. The menu is still quite impressive as they serve other mainstream desserts and beverages as well. will come back to try out their coffee and other flavors of bingsu!!
ok lastly, yongsui photo to end haha...
