Bingsu: Chestnut & jujube patbingsu
Damjang Yeope Gukhwakkot (Chrysanthemum by the Fence) in Seorae Village in Banpo-dong, Seocho-gu is famous for Chestnut and Jujube Patbingsu, which comes out in a stunningly crafted brass bowl. The dish is made of a mountain of ice, home cooked red beans, fresh homemade rice cakes, and milk and is garnished with a generous helping of freeze-dried jujubes that are so crispy they almost taste like potato chips! Another popular dish is the Sujeonggwa Bingsu in which sujeonggwa (traditional persimmon punch) is poured over the shaved ice. Dishes are served in brass bowls, which not only add an extra bit of flair to the dish, but also help keep the dessert cool and stop the ice from melting. Complement your bingsu with one of the café’s traditional rice cakes or a cup of hand-drip coffee.
