A tipster alerted us to the soft opening of Bing Haus, a new dessert concept on Convoy run by Nancy Chi, whose family members own several local Korean restaurants including Grandma Tofu & BBQ and Friend's House Korean BBQ.
Inspired by her travels, Chi is featuring trendy Thai-style rolled ice cream. Made to order, the liquid base is poured onto a cold surface and the flavors are incorporated into the ice cream as it freezes; spread thin, the frozen mixture is then pushed into individual ice cream rolls and tucked into a cup with toppings. There's strawberry, green tea, and cookies and cream, with more flavors to come.
Bing Haus is also serving cones and cups of vanilla soft serve ice cream and a beverage menu that ranges from tea to espresso and coffee drinks made with beans from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters.
Now open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., the shop's hours will expand to 10 a.m. to midnight in a couple weeks after its grand opening. Chi says they'll also add more menu items, including locally-made pastries, Korean shaved ice served in halved melons, and fish-shaped sweet waffles that will be molded and used as ice cream cones.
