This snack originally began as ice shavings and sweetened azuki beans (known as pat, 팥). It was sold by street vendors. In contemporary culture, it has become a very elaborate summer dessert, often topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, various fruits such as strawberries, kiwifruit, and bananas, small pieces of tteok (rice cake), chewy jelly bits, and cereal flakes.
Patbingsu is a summer specialty item found on the menus of most fast food restaurants in South Korea. KFC, McDonald's, Lotteria, and Burger King usually carry patbingsu on their menus from May to September. Patbingsu is also very popular in jjimjilbang.
Lotteria offers an elaborate version with ice cream
