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.

It is starting to get very very warm here in Yamanashi as the rainy season finishes up, and we enter full on summer weather. Luckily there are a wide variety of frozen ice bars to cool you off in a hurry.
The suika (watermelon) bar is one of my favorites.

The suika bar is huge! The icy melon flavored pop is about 8 inches tall, which last long enough to freeze your tongue and make you forget the blazing weather. A nice surprise is that this melon slice shaped pop had chocolate seeds! Crunchy little bits of chocolate make the suika bar really interesting to eat!
