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.
