Icheon was famous for producing good rice, so much so that it was recorded in Haengpoji, a agricultural book from the Joseon Dynasty in 1852, that “the rice produced in Icheon is good.” In the Dongguk Yeoji Exploration, Icheon is recorded as a famous production site where rice is presented to the king because the land is large and fertile and the rice tastes good. The story that you can eat rice bread made only from Icheon rice at a cafe in Icheon is creating a buzz.
A place where a unique atmosphere and a cute bear welcome you: Heungmanso
Heungmanso, located close to the Icheon City Library in Gyeonggi-do, welcomes visitors with a retro, sophisticated and pleasant atmosphere. A cafe with a Korean atmosphere has a strong coffee aroma and looks like it would have rice cakes or alcohol buns, but instead, there are cookie and shoe-style rice buns. It feels like you’ve entered an old country house, but it also has a strangely comfortable atmosphere, like you’re in a cafe. The interior of the cafe is full of atmospheric and cute props such as rice bags and figures, making it a great place to visit alone or with children.

Rice cream bread
Icheon Rice Cream Bread uses the freshest whole grains of rice and has a chewy and popping texture thanks to the use of rice grains. Rice cream is made by boiling it for 3 hours every morning, and it contains rice grains to enhance the texture. Heungmanso produces breads in a variety of flavors, including rice, chestnut, red bean, corn, black sesame, injeolmi, chocolate, and matcha. All breads are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Another good thing about this bread is that it doesn’t use wheat flour, so even people who get upset stomachs when eating wheat bread can eat it with peace of mind. Heungmanso rice bread can be purchased at the Naver Store and at the Lotte World Mall dessert pop-up.
