Located right in the heart of Seoul in the popular shopping district of Myeongdong, Sicily is known for its Hangari (jar) Patbingsu and its exotic Optunia (paddle cactus) Fruit Bingsu. The Hangari Patbingsu, which is big enough to feed two, comes out in an earthenware pot of shaved ice and milk loaded with red beans, cereal, almonds, and walnuts. The Hangari Patbingsu is also made with extract of Opuntia, which gives the dish its unique color and taste. If you’re not a big fan of beans, opt for the Opuntia Fruit Bingsu, which comes topped with cherry tomatoes, kiwi and banana slices, cereal, and almonds.
