Sulbing Premium Café opened its first Melbourne store in 2019, and even now in the midst of winter, you’ll find lines out the door. Known for its tasty bingsu, a sweet Korean shaved ice dessert, this Korean café has a cult following of hungry sweet tooths. And now, Sulbing is opening a second store at Melbourne Central. Unlike its flagship on Lonsdale Street, this new store will have a focus on takeaway, catering to busy commuters, travellers and students who are looking for an indulgent treat. Sulbing will open its takeaway venue at 5pm on Friday June 24.

The new Sulbing store will feature plenty of items from the original Sulbing menu, as well as new flavours for you to try. The famous bingsu, which can easily serve two people at the flagship store, will come in petite sizes, so that it will be easier to transport.
Enjoy it with fruity toppings like strawberry or mango, or opt for something more decadent like chocolate brownies. Their signature injeolmi is delightfully nutty and earthy, and if you like matcha, you’ll want to try their green tea option.
Grab a takeaway drink to keep you warm, like a Hot Double Toffeenut Latte, which features a creamy, sticky and nutty mix of chewy toffee caramel and cram. Or, if you’d rather something refreshing, try an Iced Strawberry Flatccino, Iced Green Tea Latte, or a classic Korean ‘Ade’ drink, with new flavours like hibiscus, tarty White Grape, creamy coconut piña colada and zesty calamansi.
There’s also smoothies made from fresh fruit, with flavours like strawberry, mango and yuzu with milk and yoghurt.
Of course, if you don’t need to takeaway, and you’d rather sit down and enjoy your dessert, you can always pop into the original Sulbing store on 168 Lonsdale Street, which is just a short walk away. There, you’ll find bingsu, swiss rolls, shortcakes, macarons, honey butter bread and more.
