Many of us desire a refreshing and cooling snack known as ice cream in the summer, and South Korea may have just invented the coolest way to bring it to us! The fish ice cream Korean treat is a twist on the standard ice cream, shaped like the must-try Korean street food: bungeoppang!
Bungeoppang is a crispy, hot fish-shaped pastry with a red bean filling. Bungeo means “crucian carp,” and ppang equals “bread.” It’s been sold and made in many Korean households since the 1930s, similar to the Japanese taiyaki.
