Ever since I studied abroad in South Korea in the summer of 2014, 빙수 (Bing Su) has been a big part of my life.
What is Bing Su (빙수)?
1) It’s my husband.
2) It’s delicious all year round.
3) It is shaved ice, usually with fruits, ice cream, milk, and other toppings.
It is literally so easy to make this.
(Sorry that this map is map is in Korean, but there is the English for the International Business District stop, and you can see that it is very close to the NC Cube Canal Walk)
This one in particular was taken when me and my friends went to Songdo International Business District, Incheon, South Korea. Actually, me and my friend went to this area, which took us 3 hours from our Korean host university, to see the area that the triplets, Dae han (대한), Min guk (민국), and Man se (만세), from the South Korean television program, The Return of Superman (슈퍼맨이 돌아왔다), live. Without a doubt, we were not able to see them, but we did have a glimmer of hope while we were commuting there.
Not far from the Songdo International Business District is the NC Cube Canal Walk, that has a bunch of food, and shopping places. It has a family and higher class vibe to it.
Me and my friends went to 모뉴망 (Mo nyu mang) because it had this bing su (빙수), even though a bit more expensive, that has macaroons, nuts, cookies, shaved ice (obviously), and I believe milk. Since I never ate a bing su (빙수) with macaroons before, I thought why not give it a try. This is definitely more on the fancier side of bing su’s (빙수) I have eaten. It was also around $14, which is a few more bucks than a normal priced bing su (빙수). The macaroons was delicious and the cookies was amazing, I am regretting now that I did not buy a pack of those cookies while I was there. But those cookies were $8 for 12, and I just could not bring myself to buying it.
Me and my friends also went to a noodle place while we were in this area, so check out this link if you have a chance:
