I wish... Jul 11, 2009
I decided to try out this place with a friend as I am a huge fan of Taiwanese style shaved ice.
I ordered milk ice with shiratama dango (little glutinous balls), red beans and Okinawa style black sugar sauce. I kept saying "I wish they had green tea sauce!!" because that would have been the perfect combination, without having to pick green tea ice + condensed milk combination.
The dessert was pretty average. It lacked the froffiness that the REAL Taiwanese shaved ice had. And as expected, the Okinawa style black sugar sauce didn't go with the whole thing, but I doubt any other sauce would have tasted good with red bean in the combination. sighhh

Don't think it's worth it Jul 08, 2009
Shatin doesn't have many dessert places so I thought I'd give this one a try. Given the latest hit of Taiwanese 綿花冰 in this summer, it is a pretty competitive market out there and I think shops can't just take advantage of the hit without really thinking about what makes customers come back.
1. Milk ice + 紅豆 + 3色QQ (w condensed milk) $28
2. Mango ice + 黑白珍珠 + 椰果 (w passion fruit sauce) $28
* Not many other dessert place in Shatin Plaza so this is a good after-dinner spot
* Milk flavour is milky and smooth
* Mango ice doesn't have mango taste at all, doesn't taste like it's made from fresh mangoes and probably just flavorings
* Toppings are more suitable for adding to drinks than dessert. They just give you a little and those 黑白珍珠 and QQ stuff really doesn't match with the ice.
*Need to add $5 for fresh fruits and you can't replace 'toppings' with fruit.
*The air con is super cold and you want to run out of the shop right after you finish the ice
* Seating is a bit uncomfortable and it's hard to walk in between the space
* There are 2 doors at the shop and customers would wait on either side of the shop
$28 for one ice is not cheap at all and I'd recommend the shop to try using the fresh fruits to make the ice so it's more juicy. Fruits should also become part of the selection instead of requesting extra cost....just my thought.
