IcePik Shavery serves snow cream which is a hybrid between traditional Hawaiian shaved ice and ice cream, creating a new dessert which is lighter, with a fluffy snow-like texture.
I’ve been here a few times already and it’s a great place to cool off from the Summer heat. Even in the winter, its a nice treat for those with a sweet tooth.
I was invited back to give more of their items a try.
You order up at the counter and then choose a seat. There’s not a lot of seating inside for large groups, so I’ve seen lots of people go do take out. Usually in the early afternoon it’s not too busy, but later in the evening, it can get quite busy.
Sea Cream Coffee is made with full-bodies medium roast coffee with caramel undertones, topped with their sea cream. The drink was pretty good and was good and it a tad salty, which reminded me of this other drink from Hong Kong.
House Special Milk Tea can be made hot or cold. I got the hot version and it tasted ok. Nothing interesting about it.
There are lots of varieties of toppings and snow cream flavours that you can combine together. You can choose ones with predetermined toppings and flavours or create your own.
Their snow cream comes in various flavours:
- Black Sesame
- Green Tea
There are a few more flavours that are seasonal:
All of the flavours were pretty good, but one that I really didn’t like was the mint. It just seemed like I was eating toothpaste or gum.
My 3 favourite flavours are original, green tea and mango. My usual toppings are basically all fruits – mango, strawberry, and also those hand made rice cakes.
There’s so many other topping options, but I like to keep it fresh and simple.
Don’t forget the drizzle
The offer free drizzles that are self-serve:
- Condensed Milk
The best part is really drizzling all the condensed milk on top. I’ve never used the other drizzles since it’s all about the condensed milk. Pairs well with a majority of the shaved ice.
