    平日の夜に予約して伺いました。平日なのに満席(-_-)予約して良かったー!お店が3階にあるのに、エレベーターがないのは衝撃でしたが。。。二人だったので、とりあえず盛り合わせを頼みました。が、これが失敗。肉の盛り合わせのボリュームがすごい!!!食べても食べても減らない(・・;)味も濃い目なので、終盤はかなりぐったり。燻製はそこまで強くないので、燻製好きじゃない方でも美味しく食べられると思います。

    These shaved ice specialists are only open on the weekend but offer a unique variety of this chilled dessert all year round. Try their Chocolate Fromage with chocolate shaved ice sprinkled with mascarpone cheese, or their Strawberry Milk made with strawberry condensed milk, or the Princess Condensed Milk coated in a layer of espum foam. Each shaved ice treat has an unforgettably novel design.
