Shaved Ice, as some people may know it, is a specialty dessert originated from Taiwan.
What makes Our Taiwanese Shaved Ice worth mentioning is that the place used to be the home for a famous Taiwanese painter, whose valuable painting was sold at Sotheby's auction for a very high price.
The name Our Taiwanese Shaved Ice pays tribute to the painter who was a victim of the Two Two Eight Massacre.
Located on No. 249 Lan-jing Road at the intersection between Lan-Jing Road and Guo-Hua Road, this dessert shop is right between the office spaces and storefronts.
While enjoying the delicious Shaved Ice that eases the summer heat, you may also recall the tragedy of the past and express moments of gratitude for the big leap Taiwan, as a country, has taken toward being a democratic society.
For every serving of Shaved Ice, you get to choose five dessert toppings from over 10 options. Some toppings that we love are their nutritious Almond Jelly, indigenous Tapioca Balls and Honey Sweet Potatoes.
Their Honey Sweet Potatoes are freshly made every morning.
When you come by early during the day, you get to see the shop employees peeling the sweet potatoes before cooking them in boiling syrup.
The hot steam coming out of the boiling pot bears a resemblance to the mingling between the fire and ice. It's an interesting sight to behold.
