This is not something I would recommend to my non-Asian friends.......unless they are adventurous and like Asian foods! It is shaved ice (and might I add, VERY VERY roughly shaved...like chunks of rocks kind of ice!!!) with various eastern-style toppings. You pay 60NT for up...More

Quite good I'd say, but I still like the similar desserts from 小南門 way better. I noticed inconsistent serving portion size dine-in vs take away....yes the take-away has lesser portion.

東西是好吃,但也沒那麼棒,太貴了又少I won't recommend this to tourists.This place charges too high, and the food is just fine.There are bunches of local vendors like this with better service and more reasonable price!
