Korean red bean jelly ‘yanggaeng’ is one of the most popular Korean snacks, with sweet and texture, and blended silky beans.
It comes in 16 varieties of flavor including mugwort, chestnut, black sesame, and raspberry, and softly melts in your mouth.
The yanggaeng is sweetened just enough to bring out the scent and natural flavors of the main ingredient.
Geumokdang in Seoul(Yeonhee-ro 11ra-gil, Seodaemun-gu) specialises in authentically made yanggaeng, different from those found in regular stores.
No preservatives are added to the products at Geumokdang, making the shelf life shorter, but it’s a health-conscious choice.
The fancy yet neat packages make a perfect gift option for friends and family in Korea; however, it would not be easy to bring it back to Australia.
Other items sold at the store include chewy rice cakes made with rice water and traditional juk (porridge).
The menus served at Geumokdang are well seasoned while leaving a clean aftertaste.
