October 4th, 2015. I went to The Cup Rice and Noodle with fellow foodies. Located at Pantai Indah Kapuk [PIK] The Cup is actually a Korean Restaurant. Yeah, they named it The Cup and we just gonna figured out ourselves what kind of food they served.
We are excited to bring this contemporary Korean dining concept into Indonesia, giving you the opportunity to taste the authentic modern Korean dining experience. We are geared towards growing and expanding TheCup through our brand concept “Slim Stylish Simplicity” into Indonesia and aiming to establish TheCup as a household name in this region.
I didn’t take many pictures because the place itself wasn’t very spacious. But it’s quite cozy to hang out with friends. At first I didn’t wanna write it in blog, that’s why I didn’t take pictures on 1st floor. Well, after some thoughts, I finally write it. 🙂
Besides the rice and noodle that spread along the reviews from bloggers, I will review their desserts.
SNOW ICE BINGSU
Bingsu or bingsoo is a very popular and elaborate snack/dessert in Korea, especially during the summer season. This snack is composed of ice shavings and various ingredients such as sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, various fruits such as strawberries, kiwifruit, and bananas, small pieces of tteok (rice cake), chewy jelly bits, and cereal flakes. It is often topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt. The most popular variety is patbingsu made with sweetened azuki beans (known as 팥, pat).
Cheese Bingsu 55k
cheese cake cubes, wafers, almond flakes, raisin, vanilla ice cream
At first, I didn’t wanna try it. I guess because I didn’t like cheese in desserts. But, all of my friends forced me to try the cheese bingsu because, “It’s the best flavour! You should try! Come on!” OK, fine, I’ll try. And, it was amazing! I couldn’t stop my spoon from digging into the bingsu. LOL. It was combination between sweet and salty. Perfect. I love the wafers too. And the snow ice was fantastically delicate. Melt in your mouth.
Popcorn Bingsu 49k
popcorn, raisin, vanilla ice cream
Not really my thing because popcorn wasn’t my favourite anymore. But it was very pretty. Too bad, I still couldn’t move on from the cheese bingsu LOL. But still, snow ice was one of my things that make me happy. So, if it’s cheese or popcorn or anything else, I will try to finish it happily. 🙂 Yeah, I finished it with my friends. We were so happy. *daydreaming eat this right now because it’s far away from my place* *sigh*
Green Tea Bingsu 45k
green tea ice cream, red bean, wafers, tteok (rice cake), pocky, and green tea powder
A friend told me that this was very good. Actually, this was my least favourite that day. True. I didn’t catch the greentea-ish there. I think it needed more green tea powder. But the soft ice cream was great. Definitely will try another flavour next time I come back to The Cup.
Overall, I love their snow ice bingsu and I wanna go back there to try their savoury food. Rice and noodle. Hmm.. tempting!!!
