팥빙수 Patbingsu

A yummy summer treat that you MUST have if you’re in Korea:

팥빙수 patbingsu (red-beaned dessert/snack)

Soooooo delicious in the summertime! With shaved ice, red beans, small dduk, milk, fruit, and ice cream/yogurt, it’s simply yummy. Of course, different places puts different stuff, but that’s what it basically consists of. My favorite place to buy 팥빙수 is at Paris Baguette. They come with all that I named above, plus with some corn flakes! So if you’re ever in Korea during the summer time, ask for this treat at this French bakery! Though of course, patbingsu is available at a lot of other places ^^ They have these in the convienence stores (like Family Mart, 7 Eleven, etc.) but those taste really gross, especially when compared with the real deal (the ones over there aren’t made fresh, they’re premade and put into packages). Plus, they don’t come with the good stuff, only condensed milk, red beans, and shaved ice.

Korean Food I’m Craving For Right Now

I’ve been craving for some specific Korean food so I decided to blog about it! Although it might make me hungrier, I don’t care! I just want some of this Korean food that I’ll name below:

돈까스 donkkasseu (fried pork cutlet)

It’s a Korean-fied version of schnitzel, though I know that the Japanese also eat this, just under a different, yet similar, name. The pic above is how Koreans usually serve it (or at least at the place where I get take-out does). The side dishes come with some kimpbap, fried fish, and sometimes they’ll have corn or coleslaw.

김치찌개 kimchi chigae/jjigae (kimchi stew)

Yum yum yum! You can add anything into this stew, some spam, onions, tofu, whatever you want! Using old kimchi tastes the best when brewing this stew ~
