During my time in Taiwan, my sweet tooth quickly drew me to Baobing, the Taiwanese take on a snow cone. The versions I enjoyed in the Taipei night market were usually scrapped ice smothered with red beans or fruity syrups.
Sno-Flake, just opened in Inman Park (on Highland Avenue across from the Mead Development), offers a modern take on Taiwanese shaved ice. Check their technique for molding flavors into ice blocks before spinning the blocks on custom built electric scrappers. The results are delicious!
Pay a visit after your next power meal at Sotto Sotto for a healthy alternative to that chocolate soup!
Here is video of the more traditional version from Gem, my favorite all time video blogger.
