Melon Bingsu at The Lga Coffee

Hello Guys!!! What are you doing?

I found a cafe that makes a fruit lover really happy. This cafe is called Lga (엘가). Located in Bongcheon-dong (봉천동), that sells shaved ice or patbingsu (팥빙수)Me and my Oppa stopped in here after lunch for dessert. I came here initially because the melon shaved ice was eye captivating. If you're in the area, this is a great place to stop by and enjoy their outlets and desserts.

We liked the environment when we entered into this cafe. The place was clean and the decor was antique and relaxing.

They were so busy with their job. Service is great here, everyone behind the counter is friendly and kind.

The interior design is quite unique with the brick wall. Really gorgeous wall decor!

YES!!! I found a huge selection of dessert, beverage, and drink!
Anyway lets try their great fruit shaved ice (빙수)! According to Wikipedia, Patbingsu (팥빙수, also stylized as patbingsoo, literally red beans with ice) is a Korean shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup, and red bean paste. The snack is highly popular in South Korea. This snack originally began as ice shavings with red bean paste (known as pat, 팥). It was traded among government officials. Many varieties of patbingsu exists in contemporary culture. Almost all the cafes have started including this in their menu because of the hot weather.

It has a casual and chill atmosphere with an assorted selection of beverages as well as delicious pastries, ice cream, and shaved ice. So even if you dont want to drink, you still have many choices.

They also have plenty of good breads, and cakes to choose from. 

 That cake looks yummy and I know those flavors are perfect!

So many ice cream flavors to choose from!

Ice cream comes in many different colors and can often be found at LGA store.

They sell all kind of coffee and flavors, and they have a great variety of coffee selections.

You can find coffee beans being produced in many countries!

I was on a hunt for the perfect tea cup and here it is. This idea is so brilliantl! I think people are going to love this so much that they'll want to see more these beautiful designs. 

They also have two floors available!

There are so many amazing pictures! Go and sit on second floor for best view!

They have plenty of seating space and the decor is bright and comfortable. 
It's a good place to stop after lunch or dinner for a quick dessert.

The cafe is unique and nice for meeting up with friends, family or lover for a coffee or dessert.

This metal art was specifically designed to use in an indoor setting.

It's a metallic decor filled with eye-catching design. Metallic surfaces and decorations can add a lot aesthetically to interior design.

Me and Oppa decided to ordered Melon Bingsu (메론빙수) with red bean. Oppa bought it for 14,500 Won. Almost 15,000 Won for a dessert is far too pricey and it is definitely not worth it! It is one of the most creative fruit desserts I ever seen, and it was a first time to try this type of dessert. 
I shared the carved out melon with red bean and ice cream with my Oppa. This melon bingsu comes out as a whole melon. They use a small ice cream scoop to carve out of half of a melon, fill it with ice, cover it with condensed milk, and top it with the balls of melon and bluberry ice cream. They serve red beans on the side. This is a good amount to share between 2-3 people.

The melon wasn’t that sweet, but it was fun and worth trying anyhow! Melon and blueberry ice cream was melted in my mouth, it was so refreshing and cool.
