Kakigōri (Shaved Ice)

Shaved ice is a big part of the summers over here. The dishes are mountainous, and the flavors, delicious.

Strawberry flavor with swirls of condensed milk and red bean paste hidden inside. Grape, melon, cherry, coconut, peach, mango, green tea, and “Blue Hawaii” are some of the more popular ones. Condensed milk topping by itself is also amazing. The ice is a lot fluffier than what is used in western snow cones and sort of feels like actual snow.

Good ’til the last drop.
