I loooove Hobing so much!

Everyone is cheerful and ready to serve you. Korean greetings and Korean music videos playing. 128522

Got their best-seller Mango Cheesecake in small serving. Surprised to see how high they put the ice and getting through the dessert is layers of the cheesecake and mango cubes with milk. It's light and flavor mostly comes from the toppings. The almonds were also a good contrast to the soft ice.

Small serving was enough for us to share127847128523

Milk Redbean Bingsu is still the best in this place. Shared my bingsu with my dear friend, we had the large bowl for P290. Iced shavings has milk that is perfect for the sweetened red beans128523 plus it has this chewy rice cake on top. Still the best♥️

Mega Fashion Hall adds more restaurant gems with an addition of growing market for Korean desserts specifically Bingsu. This is Hobing’s fourth and latest branch as of this writing.

On this visit, my friend and I tried their new comer, Matcha with Red Bean. Their green tea was what it should be- mostly bitter and it complements well with overly sweet red bean. An addition of condensed milk makes it even better. You can request for it at no charge.

I suggest having a complimentary Dunggalae or their iced tea after having their wonderful desserts.

This is a unique restaurant. I just saw this online and everyone was talking about this place. We tried it last week and we're planning to bring our family next week. The place is really clean, they maintain it well, it also smells good, no insects or whatsoever. The food are so yummy, it has that korean vibe too. They are creative with the food platings. The service staff are great, they are all friendly and fast

Enjoyed my dessert. Although it seems to be a little price for 'shaved ice', the quality of ingredients are well worth it. I got the soy powder with mochi. I LOVED it! It was refreshing and perfectly sweet.

My only comment for this place is i hope they dont ask customers to leave after eating. There are signs on the wall that people should limit their stay. I understand that the management would want a quicker turnover, but i personally think its bad form to ask people to scoot.

The place was packed during our visit and we waited outside by the waiter for a table. We explicitely said well just wait for things to clear up since we just came from dinner anyway. He still insisted that there were seats available, but then asked a big group to leave! Server mentioned that since 'theyve been sitting for 10mins' after finishing their dessert. They left angry and we felt embarrassed.

Every time i swing by Hobing, i have my fingers crossed. Why? Some of the branches i visited is inconsistent when it comes to service and the quality of the product.

I am glad to report that the Bel-Air branch delivered. The memory of the tasteless cheese bingsu i had at the Glorietta branch is now forgotten. Let bygones be bygones as a wiseman would put it. The red bean bingsu is spot on. Right amount of sweetness, the texture of the ice is mighty fine and there is ample amount of red bean atop the ice tower.

Everything we ordered here has been heavenly. Can't get enough once you divulge with every bite. So why only 4 stars? It's self service. Not a fan of self service. I'm just lazy just like writ....128564

We still haven't gotten over the feeling when we last visited Korea.

My family craved for Korean dish/dessert again - so this time, it was bingsu! 128525

We had the Injeolme & Strawberry bingsu treated by my sister - and I looooove it!

The rich strawberry taste with the fine shaved ice, just perfect!
The injeolme was equally delicious too for those who prefer non-fruity taste with its nutty flavor.

Definitely a must-try for those who haven't especially with its trending craze now! 128513128588🏼127847

Service was slow. We ordered the Mango Bingsu (and another one) in regular size (both). It was already good for 6 people (we all have small appetites). And I really really liked the Mango Bingsu! Considering the fact that I am not fond of mango-flavored desserts! The mango was perfectly ripe, and the texture of the ice was amazing! It was also not a sweet dessert, so I really liked it.

I recommend this!!!

It was okay. Mangoes weren't sweet. Ice was too milky.

Well, who can resist the thought of bingsu? The year-round heat makes us all crave for something cool, especially for dessert. As we have been invaded by Korean culture, including their telenovelas, boy bands, and skin care lines, it's no surprise that a lot of us have taken a liking to their food too.

I love bingsu, the Korean version of the Filipino halo-halo, Japanese kakigori, Chinese baobing, Italian granita and the Malaysian ais kacang. So many cultures have played with shaved ice as a basis for their dessert and added other ingredients for flavor and whimsy.

We wanted to try the mango cheese bingsu weeks ago. The Hobing version came in a small pyramid with layers of mango and cheesecake. However, I found it bland and the cheesecake tasted a bit weird. Sadly the mangoes weren't sweet... My fiance thought it was just okay...128532 I have no clue if Hobing's other flavors fare better, but I do prefer the bingsu from Cafe Seolhwa.

There's always room for dessert! 128525 And so one fine November Wednesday afternoon, our troop of 6 went to Hobing after a heavy meal and got three bingsus for sharing: Choco Brownie, Mango, and Injeolmi (unfortunately, I didn't get to take a picture of this). What can I say? Kinilig lang ako sa sarap. I especially liked having the mochi topping128522 Will definitely be back to try their toasts.

This mango and cheese dessert is a really good one which is why it's one of their best sellers. I ordered the regular size but for people like me who can't eat so much sweets, this size is good for sharing.

I ordered their strawberry bingsu. 127827Oh so delish!128525 The milk like syrup was also good I love their shaved ice so much. Im not a fan of whipped cream but i liked it with the bingsu. Just enough to appreciate the "milkyyyy-neeessssss" of the ice.
