Description

When the temperatures are fully flirting with degrees in the low 70s, flip flops come out and the hunt for anything refreshing whatsoever begins in earnest. In the University District that means a gilded bowl of fluffy, milk-ice shavings—“silky snowy base” in Snowy Village parlance. The international chain’s Korean-style shaved ice, aka bingsoo, is light as air and piled with toppings from mango to strawberry to chocolatey Oreos. But tradition—and it’s a delicious one—calls for sweet red beans, delightfully chewy squares of glutinous rice cakes (injeolmi), and a heavy dusting of roasty soybean powder.
