Today I bring you Snow City: Shaved Ice Café
Snow city is truly a spot in Carrollton that is not to be missed. Located on Old Denton in the Korean mall, this café specializes in shaved ice, bingsu, and even taiyaki. Patbingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert with toppings that could be fruit, and red beans, and/or condensed milk. I had never had red bean paste before, but was very surprised to find that it was a very light dessert that still satisfied my sweet tooth.
My shaved ice consisted of almonds, condensed milk, and red bean paste. Definitely much different from what I am used to, but I must say I enjoyed it! Also offered are fruity flavors like mango and strawberry, with fresh fruit and fruit syrup on top. There are also chocolatey flavors for super sweet lovers.
I’ve mentioned taikayi in previous posts, but for those who are new: taiyaki is a delicious pastry of a Japanese fish shaped cake. It can include a number of toppings, but some of my favorites are Nutella or custard. It came out super hot and fresh here at Snow City, and complimented the cold shaved ice very well.
Not to mention the environment at Snow City is just fantastic and really gives off the vibe of a “cool” place to have dessert.
Be sure to stop by this unique café if you haven’t yet ~
