Bingsoo at Le Matin De Paris

After dinner at Honey Pig, Sharon said we were going to have bingsoo for dessert? Bing what? I couldn’t wait to find out what she was talking about.

When we got there I was surprised to see the name, Le Matin De Paris. It was a French bakery owned by Koreans. Matin de Paris-18

Matin de Paris

It looked like your regular coffee shop until you look at the menu board closely and see the words “Special Bingsoo.”

and lots of cakes

We ordered 3 kinds of bingsoo to share. Bingsoo is like a Korean sundae made with a base of shaved ice with rice cakes, cornflakes, fruit, red beans and topped with frozen yogurt or ice cream.

I’ve never seen this in Manila or Hong Kong. I hope we get it here soon. I’m sure it will be a big hit.

I loved the combination of flavors and textures. Crunchy cereal, chewy rice cake, finely shaved ice and ice cream. It’s like halo halo with a twist.

I also liked the bingsoo topped with tart frozen yogurt. The contrast of tart yogurt with the sweet fillings was even better.
