I had early summer vacation in Taipei until last week !
You know I hate muggy summer in Japan. And Taipei is more muggy except winter.
I never thought that such a day would come.
I decided to visit Taipei in muggy June !
Why I decided to visit Taipei in June ?
The reason is this.
Mango shaved ice !
Mango can be eaten from May to early October only in Taipei.
I often visit Taipei in Autumn. There’s no mango !
I wanted to have mango in Taipei !
So… I thought I can stand muggy weather until June….
There was rainfall throughout my trip in Taipei …But thanks for the weather, the temperature wasn’t high. I heard that Taipei was over 35 degrees centigrade just before my trip.
Actually, the temperature was around 25 degrees centigrade during my trip.
Green Bean Suanshami is very popular among Japanese tourists and I had wanted to visit for a long time.
It takes 10 minutes walk from MRT Songjiang Nanjing (松江南京) station.
Cute bean welcomed me.
The shop is cute. There’s counter seats and some tables. It don’t have much seats. Because it was chill a bit, there wasn’t many people when I visited. But I think large number of people visit there in mid-summer.
We have to share tables when there’re many people visiting.
They don’t speak both Japanese and English, but there’s menus having photos and Japanese words. So, there was no problem about order. But I remember there’s no English menus. Photo”G” is mango shaved ice.
They serve mango from May to September.
Mango shaved ice
Of course, I ordered mango shaved ice (愛文芒果冰, 200 TWD) !
So much mango cubes on the shaved ice !!! 😀 Those mangoes were, needless to say, so sweet and delicious ! I ate it up and my stomach became full with the mango !
Black syrup in it.
They cut mango after taking my order.
Abundant smell of mango made me so happy.
They use fresh Taiwanese Apple Mango from Pingtung(屏東県) only.
