Shaved ice in the heart of Chinatown

As Chinese New Year approached, so does the weather. The weather have been warm and humid for the past month. I decided to take a trip down to Chinatown for some shaved ice. Shaved ice is an ice-based dessert with fruits and jelly. Having a cold dessert on a warm night is heaven on earth. The store is located in the heart of Chinatown, usually packed on Saturday, however my friend and i were lucky enough to enjoy the cold dessert at the shop itself. The menu includes both hot and cold desserts, so fret not and bring the whole family down to indulge on sweet treats after dinner.

We enjoyed the bowl of snow ice with a Chinese New year ambiance, which was red, lively and joyous. I would definitely make a trip back to Chinatown to savour an ice-cold bowl of shaved ice!
