Shaved Ice…finally…

1 Oct

It’s been a while since i wanted to go to Shilin night market. Not for shopping, but for food of course. It’s supposed to be the best night market on this subject. I’ve heard about Oyster omelettes, Stinky Tofu and Shaved Ice. Unfortunately for me, i couldn’t taste the 2 first ones, but i bothered so much the people wandering with me about the Shaved Ice, that we went there. And i did right, because everyone liked it in the end.

So, what’s special about this ice cream? It’s made of milk, and it is exactly like coconut. They grate it so it really look like snow. They add fruits with it or chocolate, peanut, red beans… depending on what you want. However, you can also have simple shaved ice with different taste than milk and no fruits. It’s quite big so you can share: we had 2 ice creams for 5 and it was ok.

The restaurant we went is one of the most famous of the market, you have to wait to get your seat, and once you’ve finished eating, they quickly quick you out to let other sit down. It’s near the teather. Unfortunately, i can’t read the name in Chinese.

I couldn’t find any dessert that i really liked here, well, i’ve finally found it. But that’s for summer, i need to find one for winter, now…
