Berry-infused shaved ice dessert a sweet treat in sweltering heat – INSIDE JoongAng Daily
I have eaten all sorts of Korean foods but the very idea of sweetened bean paste sets my teeth on edge and makes me cringe. As an American who loves her Tex-Mex re-fried beans, it’s anathema to me to imagine sweetening them. The entire time I lived in Korea, I never dared try it.
However, the JoongAng Daily found aA Design Museum’s cafe in Mapo-gu Seoul serving a version of bingsu (shaved ice) I wish I could eat right off the computer screen. The writer discovered bokbunja (Korean wild blackraspberry) bingsu, which he described as
A glass filled with shaved ice and bokbunja extract, topped with vanilla ice cream and decorated with mint leaves and a berry…The delicious, intense flavor of the sweet berries and the ice went well with the soft, milky taste of the ice cream. It was a simple – yet refreshing and creative – harmony.
