Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas located in Samsung-dong announced its new addition 'iittala Mango Bingsu', an opportunity to imagine and taste the atmosphere of summer in Finland, in collaboration with Iittala, a premium lifestyle brand from Finland with a history of 137 years. This offer will be available for a limited time only during this summer from July 2 to the end of August. ‘Cloud Mango Bingsu’, created by the seasoned chefs of Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas, will be served in iittala's signature glass bowls and will come with a complimentary gift, an iittala card mirror, on a first-come-first-served basis.
The tableware used in this bingsu collaboration is a part of the iittala Kastehelmi Collection. With the dewdrop-shaped design as suggested by the name Kastehelmi, which means dewdrop in Finnish, it gives off an instantly cool vibe. ‘Cloud Mango Bingsu’, which has a good balance between refreshing mango and cotton candy, easily attracts customers' attention as it comes with cotton candy on top of a pole-shaped mango biscotti. Also, with a technique borrowed from molecular gastronomy, mango puree soaked in alginic acid, mango ice cream and fresh mango slices covering soft frozen milk create a perfect balance that feels heavenly in the mouth. Along with the bingsu, Finnish-style berry cheese cake and mango jelly are served as side dishes.
Ten customers who purchase this bingsu by the end of August will be randomly selected and given complimentary gifts from tea light candle holders from iittala Kastehelmi Collection, Lobby Lounge's afternoon tea packages and Grand Deli's cake.
Finnish premium lifestyle brand iittala with a history of over 100 years began its operations in 1881 at a glass factory located in a town called iittala in the South of Finland. It is the oldest corporation in Finland.
iittala Mango Bingsu is available at Lobby Lounge on the first floor of Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas from July 2 until the end of August and is offered at KRW 42,000 (including tax and service charge).
