It may be summer, but snow is coming Dallas's way. No Christmas miracles here: New York City dessert shop BingBox Snow Cream Co. is opening its second location in September. The Dallas shop will have snow desserts, soft serve ice cream and fun drinks from the Big Apple.
BingBox Snow Cream Co. specializes in Korean bingsu, or a finely shaved ice that they call snow cream, though the dessert shop does it a little differently then what you typically see at other Korean ice dessert shops. Instead of adding condensed milk or fruit syrup on top of the shaved ice, BingBox infuses flavor into the snow itself.
As suggested by the name BingBox, all snow creams are served in a box container, then topped with toppings like fresh fruit, cereal and candy and drizzles of chocolate syrup and condensed milk. Customers can choose from a preset menu of snow creams, including matcha with red bean, mochi, condensed milk and a waffle cookie, or create their own desserts. Expect New York City's bestselling ice flavor Thai tea on the Dallas menu as well as the other fan favorite flavors of matcha and mango.
The boxes of snow cream are Instagram-worthy enough, but BingBox's soft serve ice cream options make for the ultimate foodie shot. Swirled ice cream comes in flavors such as taro, milk and honey, Thai tea, and matcha. BingBox rotates through its flavors, offering six every month.
All pride to D-town: The shop is working on a special-to-Dallas flavor.
Also on the menu are the shop's drinks, which include milk tea, Vietnamese coffee and a variety of iced teas that come in fruity flavors, like strawberry grapefruit and white peach passion fruit. The only non-cold things you will find on BingBox's menu are its flavored hot chocolates and hot tea lattes.
BingBox's home in Trinity Groves is at the new mixed-use development Cypress, which is located across the street from the main strip of restaurants and shops. While the dessert shop will be the first tenant at Cypress, other shops that are expected to join include upscale restaurant and brewery Steam Theory Brewing Company and Korean BBQ restaurant K's Kitchen.
"Trinity Groves was the perfect location for us because we saw the growth potential of the area and how it is a great place for family gatherings. The restaurants that are already there are so unique, and we wanted to add our own unique dessert concept," co-founder Scott Lin says.
