Hobing Korean Dessert Cafe
It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog. I quit my job recently and I am currently enjoying the sense of freedom. It’s been a while since I last experienced this feeling that you don’t have to worry about office deliverables. All I do is eat, sleep, DOTA, repeat. Do I look like a lazy loser right now? I haven’t been out lately because I am saving my remaining money. But, honestly, it is hard to stay at home literally every single day. So, I invited my friends to have some ramen and we ended up trying this dessert cafe that’s gaining popularity recently, Hobing Korean Dessert Cafe.
Hobing Korean Dessert Cafe
Koreans have dominated us somehow. Since the release of Asian dramas locally, Korean dramas became the most popular to us Filipinos. Then K-pop came in and became an addition to some people’s playlist. Finally, for food lovers, here we have Korean food. Hobing mainly serves bingsu which is gaining some popularity recently. But, of course, they are not limited to Bingsu only. They also serve other stuff.
I honestly don’t have an idea what bingsu was that time. All I know is that it is something Korean and it is a dessert. We didn’t really plan to go to this place. Everything was all of a sudden and so, I don’t have an option to back out because I was interested, too. So, it’s not that bad at all because I am with my food buddies to try this out. The place is usually crowded during the days. Obviously, the Philippines is really hot and you can’t blame people if they flock to places where you can get some chill and ice to cool your stuff down. Luckily, we went late night. So, there were fewer people and we were able to enjoy as much as possible.
The serving time isn’t that long. So, let’s go ahead and dig in!
We only ordered two flavors: Caramel Coffee Bingsu and their special Macaron Bingsu. Okay, before anything else, I’d like to say that I am not really a fan of Korean food. Yeah, I’ve watched some K-series. Ultimately, my K-pop addiction is very limited to the songs available in Audition Dance Battle Online because I was addicted to this game when I was in high school. So, I am not really expecting much because the first time I saw it, I immediately compared it to halo-halo because of some similarities. Anyway, here are my thoughts. I’m not sure if it is really normal that they are not that sweet. I mean, I am expecting something sweet and creamy, but, not super sweet. And I thought, maybe, I didn’t mix it? Then I saw a message on the wall.
So, good thing we didn’t really mix it like what we normally do with halo-halo. Probably, I didn’t pick the right flavor. I just love coffee and prayed that this flavor will be the right one for me. The macaron flavor isn’t that bad at all. I actually prefer the macarons over the coffee caramel that I’d picked.
I can’t say that it was a great experience. But, it wasn’t bad at all. Honestly, I’d like to visit again to try more flavors. Because I am sure that this stuff is surely delicious on its own. I just have to find the right flavor for me. Of course, everything is always fun when you are with the right people and the right group of friends. So, make sure you bring your closest circle so that you’ll enjoy anything under the sun. 🙂
