Beans N Beans @ Damansara Uptown

I say “Saranghae” to Bingsu 빙수 especially when I need something refreshing to battle the recent sweltering weather. Bingsu, a popular dessert in Korean comprising of shaved ice and various ingredients, usually sweetened condensed milk, fruits, Korean rice cake, cereal flakes and ice cream.

The Bingsu mania has swept across the country since last year. Many Bingsu specialties are sprouting up and Beans N Beans at Damansara Uptown appeared to be the latest addition. Franchised from a Korean dessert cafe chain from Korea, there are currently 3 outlets in Malaysia, Damansara Uptown, Citta Mall and Oceanus Waterfront Mall, Sabah (known as Nunpat Korean Dessert Cafe)

Nestled in the heavily populated area of Damansara Uptown, Beans N Beans is quite easily to locate. The shop is situated on the same row as Fat Spoon Cafe & The Good Batch, facing the residential area.

Banana Apple Vinegar (RM 10.40)

I’ve heard of apple vinegar, pear vinegar, plum vinegar and etc but banana vinegar definitely my first time! I confess, I recoiled at first when I was introduced to this drink but was hooked as soon as I tasted it.  The house made banana vinegar has a delectable potent flavor, mild acidic, easy and soothing to the palate. Very impressive and a must try in my book.

Cheese Bingsu (RM 17.80)

The pure, soft and milky shaved ice is topped with Vanilla ice cream, cornflakes and cheesecake cubes. It had a refine creamy and milk flavour that is very enjoyable. The cheesecake cubes was light in terms of flavor and texture and I found some hidden underneath the shaved ice too!You know, cheesecake plus ice cream plus shaved milk ice makes us all happy people! LOL

Green Tea Bingsu (RM 17.80)

If you love the flavour of green tea, opt for this Green Tea Bingsu. The shaved ice was pillowy with a discernible green tea taste. The green tea ice cream deserves a sentence on its own, creamy and intensely flavoured! Another element on the Bingsu was the injulmi balls with chewy texture resemble mochi. The portion of the bingsu is huge to be shared among 2-3 persons. Get your fix here and let the smooth ice flakes slowly melt in your mouth, and your heart~


Other than Bingsu and assorted beverages, Beans N Beans menu also offers both sweet and savory toasts and sandwiches.

Red Bean Cheese Toast (RM 13.50)

A savory and sweet combination that works wonder! The imported red bean paste was not overly sweet, matched brilliantly with the cheese layer which created a memorably fantastic flavor. I feel an overwhelming urge to indulge it again now!
