Husik – Pop-up Korean Dessert House in Goodwood | Review

Husik Pop-up Korean Dessert House in Goodwood

Get in quick to nab one of the Husik pop-up’s Instagrammable ‘jiggly’ bunny desserts before they sell out.

Are you ready to “jiggle jiggle”?

New pop-up dessert house Husik has brought a Korean sweets trend to Adelaide: a bunny-shaped milk pudding that jiggles.

Review by Carla Caruso

Instagrammers have been loving filming the novelty dessert at the Goodwood nightspot. Though it’s like striking gold if you get a bunny!

As it says on Husik’s page, the staff only make “20 serves a day, divided into two batches – 7pm and depends. It’s first come, first served. Once sold out, it’s sold out. No holds for the pudding.”

It’s also “one serve per table for a fair distribution … even in a big group.”

Which makes it even more fun if you snare one!

The ‘tosuni’ bunny comes in two different flavours – original milk or earl grey with condensed milk. (For the original milk pudding, you can have a choice of syrups with it, including strawberry, condensed milk, citrusy yuja, and matcha.) The pudding tastes a bit like panna cotta but creamier.

Husik’s located within Metta Sol Specialty Coffee in Goodwood, transforming from a plant-based Vietnamese eatery by day to a Korean dessert house at night.

Since opening in December 2023, it’s been fully booked every night, care of its yummy range of Asian-inspired desserts.

Husik – meaning “after meal” in Korean – is open from Wednesday to Sunday, 7pm to 11pm. Bookings via direct message on its Instagram page are advisable, though they’ll also take walk-ins if you’re prepared to wait in a queue.

The pop-up’s run by Jeni Cheung, plus sisters HaeAh Lee and JinAh Lee, who also own Hello Stranger café. It’ll be open until early March 2024, though there’s a possibility the date will be extended. 

Other dessert options at the eatery include a ‘moffle’ or mochi waffle. (‘Mochi’ is a Japanese cake made of glutinous rice.) There’s a brown sugar boba version on the menu (with bubble tea ‘pearls’ and salted cheese milk foam), and matcha green tea, and strawberry-Nutella options.

We skipped the matcha one due to the caffeine component. My boys, however, loved the Nutella and brown sugar varieties so much, they (embarrassingly) licked their plates.

‘Snowflake milk bingsus’ are also big on the menu. ‘Bingsu’ is a milk-based Korean shaved ice dessert, doused in sweet toppings. We tried the ‘injeolmi’ one, comprising Korean ricecake with soybean powder, red bean paste, and almond flakes. (Please note: the ricecakes contain peanuts.)

Other bingsu flavours include strawberry, matcha, and chocolate. Our serving size was so generous, we couldn’t even finish one between us. It’d be perfect for a super-hot summer’s night.  

Last on the menu is a matcha tiramisu with matcha mascarpone, and fresh and dried strawberries. We had to skip this one, unfortunately, as we didn’t want the kids staying up all night! But we can bet it’s delicious.

The drinks, meanwhile, include hot and cold teas and lattes, plus soda. We tried a black sesame latte (an acquired taste) and a butterfly pea flower yuja soda (colourful and sweet).

Husik is an inviting venue with indoor and outdoor seating, hanging plants, and fairy lighting.  

As its tagline says, sweet dreams are made of late-night desserts!

What we like about it 

  • Quirky, cute desserts you won’t find anywhere else
  • Cosy suburban venue, with easy parking, which can satiate sweet-tooths late at night
  • Great for kids with adventurous palates
  • Friendly service

Things to consider

  • The venue is open from Wednesday to Sunday, 7pm to 11pm – bookings are advisable
  • The staff only make 20 serves of the popular ‘jiggle jiggle’ desserts a night. Which means they’re only available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. There are plenty of other tasty options on the menu, though, if you miss out!
  • Many of the dishes comprise milk, so won’t suit those who are lactose-intolerant or vegan. 

Location:

98B Goodwood Road, Goodwood – until March 2024

(located within Metta Sol Specialty Coffee)

Open Wednesday to Sunday, 7pm-11pm
