Why Does Everyone Love Bingsu AKA Korean Shaved Ice — K-Town



In Koreatown’s modern culture, there isn’t a more beloved or frequented after-dinner dessert than patbingsoo. The sweet shaved ice dish almost always starts with a dose of red adzuki beans atop a mound of snow-like ice. Modern variants have added things like fruit and even flavored ice, which gives the dessert a newfound Instagram appeal. In this episode of K-Town, host Matthew Kang travels to New York City’s Chinatown neighborhood for a new patbingsoo player named Sweet Moments.

Eater intern James Park, a bona-fide Youtube sensation, joins Kang at the casual hangout spot and proceed to taste through three types of shaved ice. Park explains to Kang the three different waves of Korean shaved ice, from the most basic and straightforward to the most outlandish, photogenic type that’s topped with watermelon balls and a pig-shaped meringue.

Munchies: Jeepney



On this episode of Munchies, we visit Jeepney, the bustling restaurant in New York City’s East Village, to learn what Filipino cuisine is all about. Then we hit the town with head chef and owner, Miguel Trinidad, and his business partners, Nicole Ponseca and Tomas De Los Reyes.

First, they take us over to their Chinatown staple, Nom Wah Tea Parlor, where they spend every New Year’s Day. Nom Wah’s owner, Wilson Tang, teaches us about the finer points of eating soup dumplings and a little Chinatown history. Buzzed off of pork broth, we head over to hang with Jeepney’s neighbors at Ducks Eatery, where we sample the goat’s neck with shots of potent homemade Mezcal.

The crew from Ducks Eatery joins us for a nightcap as we stumble over to the bar Pouring Ribbons for world-class cocktails and some hilarious stories from their colleague, Topher Chung. We finish off the night with a leisurely stroll back to Jeepney, where a whole set of friends is waiting to crush an epic Kamayan feast. Enjoy!

This is video is an unsolicited testimonial by Benson.

I probably should not be making this video for it will attract a lot of customers to my favorite hand-made pull noodle and dumpling in NYC. I might be shooting myself in the foot.

I am willing to take that chance that I’ll have room at the shop.

Hopefully, this testimonial will keep them really busy.

Warning!

If you are looking for an upscale place, this is the wrong noodle place to take a date.

This place is a hole in the wall.

The service is terrible. Just go in and tell them what you want. They serve the food. They don’t understand a word of English.

The entire place has about 20 seats.

Plenty of napkins, chopsticks and utensils.

Also, lot of special sauces for the dumplings.

I have been a customer at this noodle and dumpling place for several years.

Place takes USD Cash Only!

No Credit Cards or Checks or Foreign currency.

I prefer to eat my meal there and take out occasionally. It tastes better. That’s just me.

Well, thanks for watching this testimonial.
