We are always more than ready to dive into a generous helping of bingsu or bingsoo, aka Korean shaved ice.

Bingsu is a snack composed of ice shavings and various toppings such as sweetened condensed milk, a variety of fresh-cut fruits, syrups, cookie crumbs, chewy jelly bits, cereal flakes and so much more.

It is then topped with even more toppings like ice cream and whipped cream for final finishing touches.
