While everyone’s bundled up in their winter coats and cupping mugs of steaming hot chocolate, we’re waiting in a 30 minute queue for…shaved ice. Laugh all you want, but I have no regrets.

Had a friend fly in from Copenhagen a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday so to reward him we came here for some shaved ice – could not stop thinking about making my second trip ever since.

Though we came for dessert, it was already 10:30PM by the time we were seated, so we decided to put in orders for food as well (no judging please, waiting can make one very hungry).

Their Sushi Set A.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of Dozo located in Soho (only a five minute walk from Shibuya) but I’ve got to say their salmon and tuna sashimi here are just as fresh and fatty – highly recommended.

Their Salmon Teriyaki.

Again, quite impressed with their generously portioned salmon lightly glazed with teriyaki sauce paired with veggies, miso soup, rice and seaweed salad.

Their Mango Bing.

Creamy shaved ice topped with sweet mango and condensed milk.

Their Matcha Bing.

Ughhhhhhhhhh, I literally waited all week for this. Do yourself a favor and get the large size (who eats a small anyways???). Shaved ice comes sprinkled in layers of green tea matcha with bits of sliced almonds and hidden sweet read bean in the middle. Much red bean, much happy.

What can I say? Shaved ice is my weakness and Shibuya knows how to do it well. I apologize in advance for those of you who have me on Snapchat - I know it must be hard seeing such beautiful dessert via an iPhone screen. #sorrynotsorry
