“Dessert doesn’t go to the stomach, dessert goes to the heart,” – Anonymous.
If I was asked to choose between sweet and savoury, I will always pick savoury. When it comes to sweet food, I only ever have one weakness,
To be more precise, in the case here, I am talking about Korean shaved iced dessert. Better known as Bing-su, is the only type of sweet that I would always say yes too, no matter how stuffed my stomach feel. During my travel to Seoul, a chain store place called Seul-Bing, took a piece of my heart. I went back to various branches around Seoul few times during my 10 days there and now back in Melbourne, I have been looking for its replacement since.
Not the exact same, here’s praying for Seul-Bing to arrive in Melbourne, but for now this is an incredible substitutes. If you are a huge bing-su fan like yours truly, and you happen to live in Melbourne, make your way here…

Thai Milk Tea Bing-su
Huge fan of Thai Milk Tea, and for Humble Ray to create this Thai Milk Tea shaved ice is something I never knew I wanted but absolutely need in my life. Trust me when I say, it is not sickly sweet, you have extra condensed milk on the side if you need that extra sweetness. The Earl Grey ice cream on top, heavenly. Don’t forget to dig all the way to the bottom of the bowl for the grass jelly and coconut jelly goodness.
I’m guessing matcha flavoured shaved-ice is not a new invention, but I do have to admit the unique dollop of Earl Grey Ice Cream adds a layer of flavour spectrum that is just simply delicious. The red bean mochi hidden beneath the tons of shaved ice creates a fun texture to the dessert.
I know we are talking about my love for shaved-ice desserts here, but I can’t talk about Humble Ray and skip the good brunch food they served alongside these desserts. My current favourite, to the point of me craving it in the middle of my working week, is this simple and flavoursome combo of…
Egg White and Bacon
Their Croissant with scrambled eggs might be Insta-famous, but I have to say, their Egg White and Bacon is something else. The fluffiest egg whites omelette, generous rashers of bacons and good kick from the chilli mayo. Alright who’s free for brunch?!?!
Humble Ray, take centre stage and humbly brag about your amazing shaved-ice desserts. Unless Seul-Bing arrived in Melbourne, you shall find me enjoying my shaved-ice over brunch in this popular Melbourne brunch place.
