In my quest to find authentic Hawaiian Snow Cones in NYC my bestie Carol took me to Bing Box in the East Village. Sadly not Hawaiian shaved ice but dare I say just as good? Granted it has been several years since my last vacay in Hawaii.
Bing Box is a modern take on Korean shaved ice or bingsu, and I love it! I’ve been twice now. They use low-fat milk for their shaved ice.
My first time eating a Bing Box my friend Kavin and I split: Mango, Lychee, Vanilla Wafers and Condensed milk.
So refreshing and light! Perfect for a hot summers day!
Carol ordered: Tarro, Vanilla Wafers, M&M’s and Nutella.
Dewey got the Sesame Bing Box: Milk, Sesame Powder, Red Bean, Mochi, Almond Flakes, and Condensed Milk.
My second time around I made a Bing Box out of Strawberry, Mochi, Lychee, and Condensed milk. Isn’t it pretty!?
Warren ordered the Taro Bing Box: Taro, Strawberries, Caramel Popcorn, and Condensed Milk.
This is a great spot for dessert in NYC! Hope they make it through the winter and competing against Snow Days. Both spots have very similar deserts. I’ll let you guess which is my favorite!
