Jeokdang 赤糖 – Seoul
17 octobre 2020 § Poster un commentaire
For the past years Korea has been the center stage of all sorts of food trends, some curious, others unexpected. From « Croffle » (Croissant + Waffle) to sweet potato pizza – I lost sight of the traditional food I used to eat before moving to France. A particular treat I enjoyed was red bean jelly, called « Yang-gaeng » 양갱. Made of few ingredients: red bean paste, agar agar and a sweetener, it’s filling and has a great texture at each bite.
It can be found in any supermarket or you can try a chef version at Jeokdang in the Jung-gu neighborhood.
Besides the jelly in different flavors, the cafe also offers monaka (equivalent of ice cream cookie sandwich), red bean soup and red bean latte.
