Patbingsu and Omija Hwachae from La Yeon at the Shilla

One of my business partners asked me to pick a restaurant for Korean food to have a meeting with a client. I choose La Yeon at the Shilla Hotel since it was the write atmosphere and my clients might have been a little weary about going out to a Korean restaurant. The atmosphere is refined and service is world class. Of all the dishes that stood out, the last course was what really surprised me. They did a patbingsu that had a lightly ginseng icecream over homemade red bean sauce and topped with the finest shaved ice. We had this with some omija punch and some red bean snacks. On this hot day, it was the perfect thing.
