Jack’s Joint is a local Mediterranean restaurant serving affordable kebabs, shawarmas, and pizzas. Hobing Bingsu is a well known dessert cafe that specialized in Korean shaved ice desserts topped with fresh fruit, ice cream, and other sweet toppings. Jack’s Joint x Hobing Bingsu is the mad restaurant that put the two together in one spot.
Inside the humble restaurant-dessert duo located in Banawe is a straightforward interior with industrial themed tables and chairs and cement floors.
No, you don’t need to sit on one side of the restaurant if you only intend on ordering either kebabs or bingsu. You can cross order from both places which is a plus in itself, really.
To eat you’ll find no frills Mediterranean food—hummus, kofte, moussaka—with plenty of it to go around. Jack’s Joint has a simple menu with a lot of room for customizing the type of meat you want be it chicken, beef, lamb, or a combination.
