This Korean dessert shop has everything from shaved ice and soft serve to bubble tea. The made-to-order snow cream BingBox is their signature. The base typically consists of mango, chocolate, matcha, milk tea, Thai tea, taro or strawberry. You can then select toppings or pick one of their signature combinations. Toppings include fresh fruits, granola, mochi bites, and fruity cereals. Do try their soft serve in waffle bowls and cones, too. You can even put toppings on that, which means there are a lot of options here.

BingBox, Prince Sultan Rd, Al Salamah District, Lilian Towers, Jeddah, Sun to Thu 8am to midnight & Fri to Sat 8am to 1.30am. Tel: 050 570 9472. @bingboxsa

Rich, decadent and yet incredibly light – that’s what we love about Venchi’s artisan gelato. With more than 20 options on the menu, you can choose from classics such as Italian hazelnut and raspberry or delve into something more adventurous, such as the chilli pepper chocolate.

As soon as we saw this on Instagram, it’s a no-brainer to include the mango-strawberry sorbet from burger joint, Wister. Don’t you love the pop of colours?

There’s no denying this venue’s pull – coffee and ice cream. While the coffee is always good, the ice cream is on the same level, with two options to choose from – red velvet or vanilla-charcoal. So, tell us, what’s your flavour?
