Recently, some of the most popular dessert shops started to have traditional and familiar tastes in their desserts. We’ve compiled ‘four-season’ desserts including: red bean ice flakes that use red bean which is traditionally cooked in an iron pot, handmade ice cream of ‘Choco Pie’ and ‘Yakgwa’, Cold ice slush ‘sikhye’, and ice flakes with rich-flavor rice cake ‘injeolmi’ and toast.

2. Red Bean
3525 W. 8th St. Los Angeles, CA 90005

Boong-uh-bbang: 5pc $5.95, Deli-manjoo: 12pc $6.95

Boong-uh-bbang was a common winter street food that we ate to resist the cold, but now we see less of them on the street. It is cooked right after your order, so you can enjoy both warm and crispy boong-uh-bbang.
