Pat Bing Su is a Korean style shaved ice, with a variety of toppings. This huge 3 person pat bing su (served in a Pyrex cup <3) we found in Sinchon starts with  layer of sweet red bean paste, topped with shaved ice, soft serve ice cream, bananas, pineapple, watermelon, cherry tomatoes, and a little sprinkle of chocolate powder.

I love shaved ice in whatever form, and this was really interesting to eat. Watermelon and cherry tomatoes are two fruits that I have never seen in shaved ice before. I’m still feeling a little undecided about the tomatoes, but the watermelon was surprisingly refreshing and delicious.

If there is a dessert that Japan excels at, it would be the parfait. None of this single topping nonsense, instead the parfait is a work of art and balance.
Case in point, this Fruit and Yogurt parfait.
Fresh strawberries, pineapple and bananas carefully balanced on a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt, atop layers of soft serve and crunchy granola with dried fruit. All topped off with a swirl of whipped cream, strawberry sauce, a sprig of mint and a cookie pirouette.
