Let Eat Snow

The Korean bingsoo craze is in full swing these days. As always is the case in Edmonton, they open at the same time. Mind boggling. Snowy Dessert, Snowy Village, Snow Bear Dessert Café and Let Eat Snow. Yes, that’s how it’s spelt. LES is probably the least well known one but it shouldn’t be.

This was their original hours when they first opened up. As of October 1, they’ve changed to: Monday to Thursday 12:30pm to 9:30pm, Friday to Saturday: 12:30pm to 10:00pm and Sunday: 2:00pm to 9:00pm.

Keep calm and eat snow. LOL.

Hipster neon sign? Yup.

Located in the same plaza as Sambol Sri Lankan and Savoy’s, its deep south side but worth the drive. Trust me.

This is near the front entrance. Congratulation flowers!

Cute mugs and anime style toys.

Counter with ready to go water and drinks. The second row displays their cakes. Obviously, there weren’t any set up yet.

Too cute, you can write up a little sticky as your review.

They did an amazing job with the decor; exposed brick, hipster light bulbs and a beautiful glittering snowflake mural.

Preach Let Eat Snow, preach.

Like I said, decor is hip, warm and inviting. Lots of seating and there’s a spacious feel to the place.

Their dessert is 100% milk based. No water added. Legit.

The menu is simple with 6 flavours of bingsoo. They’ve added bubble bing (bubble tea and bingsoo combined), pizza and a couple new drinks for the upcoming winter.

Note: those cinnamon croissants are actually bungeo-ppang (Korean fish shaped pastry). Not sure how the Korean to English translation got so messed up.

Drinks and sweets round out the rest of the options. Everything is made fresh to order.

Trip #1
First trip was on opening weekend, on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Oreo choco bing ($10.70)
DSC02201Chocolate milk bing, cookie crumbles and oreo. This was our favourite of the two. Really addictive and love how their is cookie crumbles hidden in the middle. The shaved ice itself is perfect; light, fluffy, creamy and smooth. I have no idea how it doesn’t melt either.

Green tea bing ($10.70)
DSC02202Green tea latte bing, choco hips and ice cream. Jboi really liked this one but L and I thought their needed to be more green tea infused into the snow flakes.

Trip #2
We dropped in on a Thursday evening (just before they were closing).

Snow bing ($11.50)
DSC02541Strawberry layers, cereal flakes and milk bing. This was our favourite second time around. Lots of real strawberries, strawberry jam, ice cream and corn flakes hidden underneath.

Coffee bing ($10.70)
DSC02539Ice coffee bing, dark choco chips and ice cream. There was also some cocoa puffs hidden underneath. The coffee flavour is subtle, a bit underwhelming to be honest.

Trip #3
We dropped in after dinner at Noodle Feast on a late Thursday evening.

Mango bing ($11.50)
DSC02667Mango layers, milk bing and mango ice cream. All mango everything! This one was tasty and our favourite of the two this trip. Liked how they use fresh mango pieces.

Kong bing ($11.50)

Red bean paste, soy bean powder and milk bing. This was my least favourite out of all the bings we tried. If you want injeolmi bingsoo, Hanjan’s was much better.

Very berry Belgian waffle ($6.90)
DSC02671

We debated last time whether to try the waffle or not. This time I made sure it happened. It was a wise decision. The Belgian waffle was light but crispy and topped with whipped cream and fresh berries. It also comes with a side of ice cream.

Awesome spot to grab Korean dessert on the south side. It’s the perfect after dinner treat. Ready for round 4.
