Green Tea Shaved Ice

Sweet green tea shaved ice hides under sweet red beans, vanilla ice cream, cubes of chewy Korean rice cakes (tteok, or ttuk, or dduk), corn flakes and almond slivers.

Some are packed and ready to go. […]

The El Felix

The Chips

Super thin and crisp, we couldn’t stop eating these.
