Shaved ice

Warm days require cold snacks.

overcast 72 °F

It's been pretty warm lately, so dad and I decided to go have tswa bing which is the Taiwanese shaved ice snack. There's a ton of toppings (or rather bottoms) that go first in the bowl, such as sweet green beans, red beans, black grass jelly, tapioca balls, boiled peanuts or taro root. Then ice is shaved on top (kinda like for snow cones) and then a sweet sugar syrup or condensed milk is drizzled all over the shaved ice. I believe they have a similar snack in Hawaii? Must be a tropical island thing...


My dad digs in.
