Shaved ice

I'm closing in on my final few posts! Sorry posts have been so erratic; lots of errands and goodbyes and stuff lately. Anyway, I wanted to tell you about shaved ice, a very unique Taiwanese dessert. As you know, Taiwan's weather is pretty brutal. (It got so bad that I wouldn't leave the house after 10am or so! Nothing like an afternoon siesta. :)) Shaved ice is a great way to combat the problem. At most of the places, you can choose a whole bunch of toppings. They sometimes put condensed milk on as well, but I get it without. My favorite toppings are taro, red bean, green bean, grass jelly, and the small tang yuan.

Other toppings include fruit, various types of tapioca balls, peanuts, and more!
