[NYC - Chinatown] Sweet Moment - Cup Bingsu, Cute Latte Art, and More

Sweet Moment in Manhattan's Chinatown is famous all over the internet (and Instagram, obviously) for its super cute cream latte art and watermelon bingsu.

I've checked it out many times, but haven't ever blogged about it before this week. Check out yesterday's post for the details about the cream lattes with the cute character art on top.

During this visit, we went with the cream art matcha and the latte art was fine, but not as cute as the one in yesterday's post (see that one for cuter pics), a mango cheese cup bingsu, grapefruit panna cotta, and a red velvet cookie.

I am always craving bingsu as you probably know. I would personally have chosen the black sesame flavor, but my companion wanted the mango cheesecake one. The cup bingsu is pretty common in Korea, but not as common in Korean cafes in New York City (yet). It's kind of perfect if you want a smaller size because you want to try a new flavor (or multiple flavors) or you're eating alone.

This flavor was pretty sweet. I, personally, don't think I'd order it again, but I think that maybe people with more American palettes would enjoy this. Sweet Moment is pretty generous with its serving of the cheesecake cube crumble toppings. There's also a scoop of ice cream on top.

The cup bingsu is a little difficult to eat, I would say. It's kind of blessing in disguise that they give such a generous portion of the bingsu because some definitely fell out as I was trying to mix the bingsu and get a perfect bite.

The Grapefruit Panna Cotta was pretty good, but I'm not sure I would personally order it again. It was quite creamy and had a nice texture. The balance between the sweetness of the syrup, the somewhat tart flavor of the grapefruit, and the creaminess of the panna cotta. I'm just not much of a dessert/sweet treats person.

The cookie was chosen by my friend and I didn't try any of it. There are a variety of fresh baked goods available daily and once they sell out, they sell out.
