Mmmmmmm if you love the bitter-sweet green tea flavor then this place will make your taste buds jump for joy.
Finally got to try this place out because Steph Y wanted to go here for dessert. I was very impressed because I thought this would be another tasteless shaved ice place topped with condensed milk. The only reason I wanted to try is because it's super popular and the branding is so friggin adorable.
I ordered combo #2, green tea ice topped with red beans and creamy chunky mochi (rice cake, the real kind), drowned in condensed milk. I heard their Boba is really good but it was gone when we got there.
The ice had a rich taste of green tea, it was like eating green tea ice cream. I love it when there's a subtle bitter taste to it. I didn't really like the big mochi because they weren't sweet. They tasted great with red beans but I was getting full so I didn't eat most of them.
I can't wait to come back and try their other flavors (cash only).

Delicious shaved snow in West LA! They're definitely one of the shops bringing life back to the Sawtelle area. And of course, most of the people that come to the area are UCLA students...haha

Ice ice baby! I thought this day would never come! A day where I didn't have to travel thousands of miles to Taiwn to indulge in snow ice! I had the pleasant opportunity to snack on one of these bad boys with a girlfriend and enjoyed every last bite of the creamy icy treat. The portions are generous and the price was reasonable considering size and deliciousness.
Their fruit wasn't very sweet, hence the docked star, but select any other toppings and you'll have a magical experience. I recommend any of the traditional toppings ie. grass jelly, pudding, red bean) as the bold flavors combined with the creamy milk texture will make for a rich decadent dessert.

What's not ice cream nor yogurt, but is as unique as a snow flake? It's like biting into a fluffy cold cloud that's strawberry, chocolate, or coffee flavored. You'll just have to float in and experience the taste for yourself. Did it mention you can add toppings of cookies ?

Ice Ice baby! I know dudes aren't allowed to use the words cute to describe anything besides girls but the use of penguins and owls here are really cute. XD.
I just parked in the neighborhood next door and decided to walk in. From the outside, the store wall calling me in with the big googly penguin eyes! Inside, it's a relatively simple design. They have a number of metal tables and chairs. The walls are decorated with pictures of chibi penguins and owls. Pretty darn cute. XD
For $4, my sister ordered green tea shaved ice with mochi with condensed milk drizzle. The regular we ordered was huge! It was really good as well, the texture and the way the shaved snow just melted in your mouth. Additionally, the taste wasn't overly sweet. It's not as good as Class 302, but at least there's no crazy one hour line.
Overall, great shaved snow for a relatively low price considering how large the portions are here. Only draw back is CASH ONLY!

**DELICIOUS TAIWANESE SHAVED ICE**
I've eaten here twice already and I like it.
No issue on weeknights, but horrible during lunch times.
Lofty, but not spacious.
You may have to wait for a table indoors.
Not too many tables.
I've tried the ORIGINAL flavor and it was bland.
I loved the STRAWBERRY!
Added some condensed milk and coconut and it tasted SUPERB.
Portions are generous. You can share a small.
Service was quick and friendly.
Note: Cash Only.

Snow cream, as they call it, is FANTASTIC. Make it a snack, make it your dessert, or hey just make it your meal! This wonderfully fluffy, soft, creamy sweet treat is sure to satisfy. I recommend getting half and half with the original and strawberry or green tea. Nom! Be sure to try out their rice cakes made in-house too! They now have a frequent buyer card, so be sure to ask for that to earn a free one after 10 stamps.

Whew, this place is super popular on a hot day. I really like the consistency of the shaved flavored ice...the kind I had that day was green tea. A few mochi balls, red beans, condensed milk - got to eat it quickly though, or it soon turns into green tea soup.
