Iceskimo


Iceskimo is a pop-up snow shaved ice spot that is spending this summer inside Pangea Bakery. It will have a permanent space on Convoy street in the Fall once its pop-up run is over.

I first learned about it from CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High and because of my snow ice obsession, I had to go check it out.

There are four flavors of snow ice to choose from, priced at $4.75. They also offer old school shaved ice, Belgian waffles and watermelon juice.

Original Snow (mangoes, strawberries, condensed milk)

I wish they served this on a plate rather than in a to-go bowl because the delicate layers of snow ice get crushed inside the bowl, so it’s not nearly as impressive to look at.

I was pleasantly surprised when I dug into the snow. Thinly layered sheets filled my bowl, just how snow ice should be. The ice was quite creamy. I’ve always enjoyed the original flavor snow ice at Class 302 but rarely order it in San Diego because even the snow ice shops seem to struggle with that particular basic flavor and it usually comes out very icy. Not so here. This was definitely the best texture of original flavored snow ice I’ve had in San Diego.

Things were off to good start, which is why our next order was such a surprise.

This BBQ sauce flavored pasta takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and needs only one pot. It’s a great weekday meal and satisfies summer BBQ cravings without having to fire up the grill.

So I’m back to my one pot pasta meals. They are just so easy and convenient. Throw everything into a pot, let it boil, and then it’s ready. Pasta is cooked, sauce is created. It’s like magic!

WOW WOW Waffle, with stands at various farmer’s markets in San Diego, recently set up a permanent space behind 30th Street Laundry. They specialize in sweet and savory liege waffles.

Once you rear around the corner, you’ll be treated to an open space decorated with reclaimed wood furniture.
