delicious, simple taiwanese-style dessert at this small outpost in millenia walk. it’s shaved ice with toppings – full of the candied beans, starchy dumplings and syrups you’d expect, and not too expensive neither.
it’s a bit of a pick and mix system – you head up to the counter and select your dessert accoutrements, or pick from a pre-optimised set.
either way, those taiwanese know their way around a jelly or two, and their syrups straddle the chinese ideal of sweet-but-not-too-much. the starchy yam and sweet potato balls are chewy but not rubbery, the ice a snowy fall of flaky cold – it’s a good cheap asian dessert option in town.

p.s. on a separate note, I’m in vietnam! I’ll be here till the end of December, so posts and photos will be intermittent (I can almost hear you asking “what’s different”) – but lots coming back when I am!
