Must Get: Shaved snow (any flavor)

I’ve been going to this place since it opened a few years back, but I guess in the recent years they added shaved snow (xuehuabing 雪花冰) to their menu. Prior to this trip, I never had shaved snow before, but according to my friend Howard, it was something that was popular in Taiwan 20 years ago. It’s like shaved ice, but BETTER because they use frozen milk as their base, instead of water.

When Ally and I went, they were out of mango, so we just had their red bean shaved snow with rice cake and added chrysanthemum jelly. My stomach is grumbling just thinking about it. It’s the best shaved ice/snow that I’ve ever had, totally worth all the calories! The only downfall was that there weren’t enough toppings. By the time we got through with half the bowl, we were already out of all the red beans, rice cake, and jelly. (Note to self: Get extra rice cake for all future visits. Yum!)

I’m definitely going back again this week for the mango or green tea shaved snow.

(It’s been a while since I had the food here. I remember thinking it was alright, but not particularly noteworthy. I remember I used to get this one dry noodle dish with chicken. If I try the food again, I’ll update this post.)
