I love when things melt in my mouth.
People Try Korean Shaved Ice
We're here today at Sul & Beans in Koreatown.
我們現在在韓國城的 Sul & Beans。
And we're gonna try Korean shaved ice.
Sul & Beans specializes in Korean-style shaved ice. They also serve other Korean desserts, including toasts, drinks, and more. They have three stores in California: Los Angeles, Rowland Heights, and Buena Park.
Sul & Beans 主打韓國雪花冰。他們也有賣韓式甜點，包括吐司、飲料和其他東西。Sul & Beans 在加州有三個據點：洛杉磯、羅蘭崗和普安那公園。
I've never tried Korean shaved ice before. I've had, like, the spicier side of Korean food but not the sweet side.
I've never had shaved ice. I've had a snow cone. I really don't know what to expect. I don't know what it is.
I used to have them when I was little, when I lived in Korea.
We are ready to eat some damn shaved ice.
Injeolmi Shaved Ice
This is not at all what I expected.
Me either. This is like a delicacy.
This is condensed milk. You're supposed to spread it on top of it.
This is the most magical thing I've ever seen.
It looks like snow.
It reminds me of a cheesecake, almost.
It's so good!
What is this?
You know that expression? "Oh, it's just melting in my mouth."
This is just really good. I'm trying to compare it to something. I don't think I can.
This is so f**king good.
Black Sesame Shaved Ice
Okay. This is beautiful.
It reminds me of, like, an Asian temple.
This is like a masterpiece. I'm scared to f**k it up.
You know it's a good dessert when you have to take photos of it.
This is much more earthy. So, I think red beans are kind of a delicacy dessert in Asia.
I just wanna eat all the beans.
I've never had ice that's this finely shaved before. It's amazing!
It's very, like, smooth.
Very healthy. Taste is interesting.
Strawberry Cheesecake Shaved Ice
I've really know already that I'm going to love this.
It's so crafty. I feel kinda guilty about—
Messing it up.
I don't wanna touch it. But I also know when I touch it, it would be the most magical moment of my life.
This tastes like an American version of Korean shaved ice.
It's so creamy. I think there's, like, little bits of cream cheese in there, too.
So, it's not cheesecake.
But cheesecake is made with cream cheese.
Cheesecake bites inside of the ice. So, you keep digging, and you just keep on bringing up gold!
The ice is... It's so fine; it's like biting into a cold cloud.
It feels like snow.
It's so much softer than American shaved ice.
Green Tea Shaved Ice
Oh, we have a little toast.
Tryna make me fat.
I'm okay with it.
This looks much like cheese strudel, and I love cheese strudel.
This is pretty; it's like something out of Zelda.
Yes. Oh my God!
I love green tea. It's so good.
This is just really satisfying.
This is like the one that you wanna eat after Korean barbeque because it wakes your ass up.
Yeah, it tastes a lot like the green tea mochis.
Oh my God, I can't wait. I'm doing this now.
Wait, how do you do this?
All right, cheers.
It tastes like a sweet grilled cheese.
I thought it was gonna taste more like pizza. It's sugary! It's like honey grilled cheese.
That is so good.
It's like a sweet and savory honey toast. And this rice cake has, like, a cheesy consistency.
On the bottom, it's like slightly toasted, so it's got, like, a little bit of resistance. I wanna move in here.
Child, I've never had it before, but I will have it again.
A lot of different textures, a lot of different flavors that really played off well. And it just looked beautiful.
This place actually brought back all my memories. It was so good.
I didn't know shaved ice could be so spectacular.
Every now and then, you need a nice, cool, refreshing treat. And I feel like this will be, like, perfect.
I really think it's the perfect date food. There's enough for everyone, and it's beautiful to look at. And it's very romantic.
There's this place next door called Somisomi, and they sell this traditional Korean ice cream.
It's a fishy. Mine has Nutella in it!
是魚魚耶。我的裡面還有 Nutella 巧克力!
