The ‘Korean Wave’ is no longer a new trend for Malaysians. It first started with Gangnam Style made popular by Park Jae Sang or PSY, then we got Super Junior, Big Bang, Lee Min Ho and more. But there’s more than just K-pop songs for Malaysians also have strong interest with Korean food, fashion, make-up and other Korean products.
I first heard of Bingsu when Caffe Bene arrived in Malaysia. Bingsu is actually Korean shaved ice dessert topped with various sweet toppings and its a highly popular snack in Korea. Doesn’t this sound like our “Ice Kacang”?
OW:L Espresso is located on the first-floor of Menara Rajawali, right beside Inti International University in SS15 Subang (near McDonald’s).
With the good location at SS15, it’s gonna be the new hangout place for students. And the OWL sign possibly means it’s a cool nest for night owls to chill and relax 😀
OW:L Espresso serves a variety of bingsu, coffee, Belgium waffles and non-coffee drinks.
The bingsu varieties include Matcha Green Tea, Mango Cheese, Brownies, Injeolmi and Red Bean just to name a few.
The eye-catching and pretty cotton candy in the shape of ‘Hello Kitty’.
This Hello Kitty cotton candy is a photo-worthy dessert. Gotta take more photos with it before we tear and eat them. Haha
My little guy and me with Kitty miao.
Us with the Hello Kitty dessert!
The ‘Yaong’ bingsu is topped with various fruit toppings like watermelon, honey dew, grapes, strawberry, choco sticks and vanilla ice cream. The bingsu has a nice sweet flavour and the shaved ice has a surprisingly smooth texture.
Verdict: OW:L Espresso at SS15 is a nice cafe to chill and relax over Korean desserts like bingsu and coffee with friends and family. There are varieties of bingsu to choose from and the shaved ice served is relatively smooth with a nice sweet flavour from the toppings.
