Is this culturally insensitive?  Hmmm...
Miko looking sort of wrung out...after kayaking six miles while seasick,
having a foot massage, and eating an entire order of xiaolongbao.
The "Old School."
The "Frrrozen Hot Chocolate" (three r's).
You can "build your own" like in a yogurt shop.
We like their cute designy style, and their nice server.

  • It's definitely the best snow we've had, although we only have two other locations to compare it to.
  • Jenne really liked the chocolate snow -- it was rich, creamy, and really chocolatey. The whipped cream is good too, not too sweet. She was not a huge fan of the old-school.
  • I liked my Old School, but next time, I would get an extra layer of condensed milk in the middle. The red bean is quite good. Tastes homemade.
  • The design is really cute and simple.
  • The music is at the perfect level! This never happens in trendy restaurants!
  • The server at the counter was a lovely person.
  • We're coming back to try the Sweet & Salty!
