Ice Cream Monday

Today’s ice cream dessert is shaved ice from Korean bakery Paris Baguette in Koreatown.  Shaved ice is different from the ice in a snow cone because it’s shaved rather than crushed.  Korean shaved ice, or patbingsu, includes sweetened azuki beans; tteok (like mochi); fruits like grapes, strawberries, blueberries, melons and pineapple; syrups; condensed milk and a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

Wow.  I love this.  It’s so refreshing.  The ice gets kind of creamy, and it’s sweet–but not overly sweet–from the syrup.  The combination of all the flavors make for a great summer treat!

  1. This looks delicious and so refreshing. In which Koreatown can I find Paris Baguette? New York City? Thanks for sharing.
