A Sweet Place Patbingsu

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

The Seoul bingsu tour continues! I have two months and counting until going home and I haven’t let up on eating bingsu whenever I can. I think I will probably be still posting about the different bingsus that I’ve tried after leaving. The next bingsu place I decided to try was A Sweet Place (Danpatjib) in Gyeongridan.

A Sweet Place is right in my neighborhood. It doesn’t look like much, so I never stopped in. It’s right across from the super popular Street Churros so that may be why I never noticed it much. It was always crowded though, so one day I gave it a try with my friend!

I’m so glad I did. I’m still trying a lot of different bingsus in Seoul but each time the patbingsu from A Sweet Place comes out on top. Everything about their original bingsu is on point from the red bean paste to the ice flakes. If you are a fan of milk flavor, I guarantee you will love this place. Their ice flakes are actually sweetened milk flakes and oh my gosh… delicious. 🙂

I don’t like rice cakes in general so I didn’t like the rice cakes here, either. Their red bean paste was the best I’ve ever had! It tasted really fresh and had the perfect amount of sweetness. There is also a hidden layer of red bean paste in the middle so you never really run out. The milk ice flakes are something else; you have to try it to understand but it’s amazing. They also have green tea, black sesame, and sweet potato flavors. I had the black sesame but didn’t really enjoy it. Stick with the original!

Long story short? Go to A Sweet Place and get their original bingsu. It’s the best!

Will it stay the king of bingsus? Until next time my friends. 🙂

Q: Have you ever tried bingsu?

To get to A Sweet Place, take the subway to Noksapyeong Station and go out of exit 2. Walk straight until you reach the underpass; cross to the other side and go back up the street for a few minutes. You will see Street Churros and it will be across from that. Regular bingsu costs about 7,000â‚©.
