The Food of Korean Fest

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Aug 10, 2009 8:40PM

The shaved ice and fruit dessert known as bing soo tastes even better when the temperature is in the low 90s. We saved the bing soo for last yesterday while at the Chicago Korean Festival. Held on Bryn Mawr between Kedzie and Kimball, the festival seems to grow larger every year. We decided to hit it and get out early before the heat really started scorching attendees; the heat also swayed us from eating kim chi. Here are some shots of some of the food dishes available for purchase, ending with a beautiful bing soo.
