On a recent trip to LA, my brother requested snow ice for dessert. He was visiting from the Bay Area, which surprisingly hasn’t developed as many snow ice places. Of course I’m always game for snow ice.
We were hoping to visit the new branch of Blockheads Shavery, my second favorite snow ice place, but they wouldn’t be open for another few days. So instead we headed to Salju Dessert which I had been meaning to try for a while.
In addition to snow ice, they also offer crepes and drinks. For the snow ice, you choose a size, an ice flavor and a couple of toppings. Syrups are free of charge and you also have an option to get just snow ice and syrup if you don’t want toppings for a little cheaper price. Either way, I thought the prices were pretty reasonable.
There were so many snow ice flavors to choose from, so we had a hard time deciding. Luckily there were four of us, so we were able to tackle a few flavors. Despite coming off a big dinner, we managed to polish off five smalls.
Taro Snow Ice with Condensed Milk, Rice Balls and Egg Pudding
This was our favorite snow ice flavor out of the ones we tried. I was happy to see rice balls as an option because very few snow ice places offer it.
