so after ignoring so many queues for the famous so called “best patbingsu” in Seoul, I finally tried it. Meal Tops are normally available at Hyundai Departmental stores. and usually on the top floor.
their shop concept are the same so it’s easy to recognize. my menu pictures is with Megumi I think T_T. but anyway, this place is easy to find. there’s one Hyundai Departmental store right at Sinchon!
they are famous for their normal shaved ice patbingsu which is really just shaved ice, a lot of red bean and 2 pieces of ddeok/rice cake. there was coffee and matcha as well but everyone seemed to had ordered the normal one. we ordered the strawberry one. but to be honest, it was quite mediocore. T_T. after having Homilpat that is. but the queue is AS long. really. and I even read reviews from Koreans saying that Homilpat is better because it is made out of milk so it is soft. but the problem is that it doesn’t go well with the red bean for me. whereas patbingsu’s like these are more… original and Korean =D. so for the more Korean taste, I think this is good. there’s another really good one at Hongdae sold at this cafe but it was really expensive haha.
the patbingsu and this ice cream filled crepe both costs 7,000won. it’s pretty filling actually! but still, the taste is quite expected and nothing was special =S.
but the thing I must praise must be their red bean. and ddeok. delicious red bean and ddeok! but please don’t order the strawberry bingsu =S. opt for the normal one!
Megumi came to look for me after parting for almost half a year!!! T_T. <3 her. sent her her birthday present today without telling her. hopefully she gets surprised! teehee. she doesn’t read my blog so it is fine to say it here teehee.
