The Original Bingsu Cafe

Meal Top


Bingsu, or shaved ice topped with red bean, is by far the most popular dessert in Korea. Meal Top dessert café in Hyundai Department Store is the one most responsible for the bingsu craze in Korea. Since the original store opened in 1985 in Apgujeong Hyundai Department Store, the most high-end department store in Korea, Meal Top has become synonymous with luxury and exquisite taste, even expanding overseas to Dubai. Many other franchises serving bingsu have popped up over the years, but nothing quite matches the original recipe of Meal Top. Unlike most dessert cafes in Korea, where you order at the counter, at Meal Top you're seated and served by a waiter. The lines to get in can sometimes get long, especially on weekends in the summer. If that's the case just grab a ticket from the ticket machine and wait to be called.
