A while ago I have had several Korean shaved ices such as that at Bingo & Cook dessert cafe and Hanbing. They are nothing comparable to Japanese premium shaved ice in my opinion because they are usually served very finely with premium syrup and toppings.
At this hidden gem around Haven Street, Shari Shari is found to set as a simple wooden ware house, who is proud of their premium kakigori, Japanese shaved ice, and housemade syrup. From traditional to seasonal flavors, on top of that are some more kawaii wagashi, souffle cake, winter special red bean soup and matcha tea sets.
We are recommended with a typical flavor Uji Toki shaved ice, a combination of matcha syrup, adzuki bean, additionally with shiratama mochi.
Not being a kakigori purist, it is critical to judge if it is traditional at all, but the match syrup is definitely some of the best in town with a classic and strong bitterness, whilst the soft ice is impressively made fluffy and light. Served with a small pitcher of condensed milk on the side.
In comparison, the tiramisu shaved ice is also very fluffy with a generous dusting of coco powder and milk syrup that has been already drizzled. Without a doubt, it is more of a favourite choice here!
I can absolutely tell how authentic this dessert cafe is helmed by the man from Hokkaido.
