Incheon Chinatown, Chinese-style Red Bean Bread ‘Hong Du Bing’

In Incheon Chinatown, amidst various Chinese restaurants, you can savor a variety of Chinese dishes. Notably, about a 20-step walk from the renowned dumpling spot ‘Shibrehyang,’ there’s another popular place called ‘Hong Du Bing.’

“Chinese-style Red Bean Bread, Hong Du Bing”

Hong Du Bing offers Chinese-style red bean bread with various fillings like sweet red bean, cream cheese, mango, dark chocolate, and green tea. You can choose one of these options to enjoy, and the price per piece is 2,000 won, making it reasonably priced.

“Gained popularity, especially after appearing on ‘Master of Living.'”

Hong Du Bing gained considerable popularity, especially after being featured on the television show ‘Master of Living.’ There were times when people had to wait for an hour or two due to the long lines formed by eager customers.

Fortunately, during my visit, it was a relatively quiet time, and I could purchase without waiting in line. Considering the variety of options, I opted for the most basic and popular choice, the ‘Red Bean’ filling.

Undoubtedly, the ample amount of red bean inside the bread showcased the reason for its popularity. Perhaps the word spread about the generous use of ingredients, contributing to its widespread appeal.

“Snacking in Chinatown”

While there are many attractions to explore in Chinatown, the ability to enjoy Chinese cuisine without visiting China itself is a significant merit. If you find yourself in Chinatown, indulging in the local delicacies could be a delightful addition to your visit.
