Just like what I wrote in Plana’s last week, it was my colleague, Lily, who told me about this cafe. I’m glad that I met her and she recommended these restaurants to me.
The restaurants that she suggested are very cute, cozy, comfortable and relaxing. I would like to discover more restaurants in the future and that’s gonna be my goal this year. YEY Me! (Insert London Tipton’s voice. 🙂 )
Actually, we went to Le Miél after we went to the gym. So, what’s the point of going to the gym, right? And it was just our 2nd week! So, it was a very early cheat day for us.
So, I told him about Le Miél the night before and we actually went there but he wants to eat rice at that time so we decided to come back the day after.
The restaurant was very cute. It has a homey feel. The music on the background was apt for the place. Lily was also right when she described the place to me, it was really cute!
Here are some photos of the place:
It was heaven at first bite! The Gateau Fudge Chocolat has a bitter sweet taste but was very soft and chewy. It was delicious even if it was not the usual sweet cake that we usually order in the popular bakeshops in the Philippines. Actually, it was better than the cakes sold in the popular bakeshops.
I actually saw this bingsu in Lily’s instagram. She described it as:
Bingsu-Korean version of Halo-Halo
Flavor: Berry Berry-shaved snow ice, corn flakes, condensed milk topped with French vanilla ice cream and fresh berries
Indeed, a bingsu is a Korean Halo-halo. It is a refreshing dessert. It’s like a yogurt with fruits such as blueberries and strawberries with cornflakes too. It was very delicious! I highly recommend it. I would love to try it again or maybe try another flavor and another cake next time.
By the way, here is another information about the bingsu:
According to Wikimedia Commons,
Bingsu or bingsoo is a very popular and elaborate snack/dessert in Korea, especially during the summer season. This snack is composed of ice shavings and various ingredients such as sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, various fruits such as strawberries, kiwifruit, and bananas, small pieces of tteok (rice cake), chewy jelly bits, and cereal flakes. It is often topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt. The most popular variety is patbingsu made with sweetened azuki beans (known as 팥, pat).
