My Singaporean wife took me here, and while her choice would of course be the durian shaved ice dessert, I chose the lime. The texture of the ice is really astounding; it is shaved, not ground like we have here in the U.S. with sno-cones.It appears that they really use fruit juice, not syrup. Once you are here, you might... More

I had the watermelon & lychee shaved ice while walking around Chinatown. It was not overly sweet to my taste and everything was so fresh! It just melts in your mouth right away! It's really worth a try but the portion is more suitable for sharing between 2-3 people.

Nothing beats sitting in an air conditioned shop having delicious shaved ice. Price is reasonable at about $6 per bowl for sharing between 2 people. Lots of seats and turn over rate is high so good.

This place is most famous for their Peanut Paste, which is a traditional chinese dessert but those who are of non-Chinese background may not be accustomed to it. Their snow ice desserts are good too, especially if you need to cool off on a hot and humid day. Also love their glutinous rice with chicken, and the 3-colour cakes. For... More

First, note that the most visible sign out front reads simply "Traditional Desserts." Most reviewers rave about the snow ice ($5), but I prefer the traditional Cantonese desserts served here, which are generally less expensive (mostly $2.50-3.00), offering not only good value but also extremely pure, distinct flavors. My favorite has to be the not-very-temptingly named "glutinous rice balls in... More

There are many choices of the traditional dessert there. Highly recommend for Mango roll and Mango Snowice. It is the best to have during the hot day.

You will yearn to go to this place on a hot day. The snow ice is big enough to be shared by 2 and the "snow" is silky smooth. This places seems to be a draw for young tourists , especially from Asia. But on a crowded day, the members of the staff show signs of "strains" by being snappy... More

With a large variety of desserts and shaved ice, we had the mango rolls, durian shaved ice, watermelon shaved ice, the stuffed tang yuen and the green bean soup. I personally like the green bean. Well cooked and just the right flavour. Overall it was great with no complaints.

Easy to find location. There seemed to be about 3 entrances but make sure you enter through the last door on Temple St. Find a table, reserve it, get in line, order, and wait at your table. Each of the snow ice or at least the one I ordered was SG$5, which I thought was fairly priced compared to US... More
